The independence was to be short-lived however. In 1940 Lithuania was occupied by the Soviet Union. It did not regain its independence until the collapse of the U.S.S.R. in 1991. The 27mm coin contains 9 grams of .750 fine silver for an actual silver weight of .2156 troy ounces.  The reverse of both coins shows Vytis, the "white knight" on horseback.  Grand Duke Vytautas used the symbol of Vytis when he went into battle.  Vytis has appeared on Lithuanian coins since the middle ages and still appears on Lithuanian coins and notes today.  This is an opportunity to obtain these two historic silver coins of Lithuania that were issued only a single year during Lithuanias brief period of independence between the World Wars.

COINS FROM FINLAND’S CIVIL WAR

Finland 25 Pennia 1917 of Kerenski governmentFinland 50 Pennia 1917 of Kerenski government
Finland was a Russian possession from 1809 until 1917.  The collapse of the Czarist government in March of 1917 created the opportunity for Finland to demand their independence.  Fighting broke out between various pro-Russian and anti-Russian factions.  The Provisional Russian Government of Alexander Kerenski, often called the "White Government"  issued these coins for the pro-Russian forces fighting in Finland.  The design is similar to the previous Czarist issues, featuring the denomination on one side and the Russian eagle with the Finnish lion on its breast on the other,  however the Czarist crown was removed from the eagle.  In November 1917 the Bolsheviks took over Russia, and on December 6, 1917 Finland declared its independence, thus ending this short-lived series. We have two attractive silver coins from this brief series  The silver 25 Penni is 16mm and is Uncirculated.  The silver 50 Penni is 18.6mm and is Uncirculated.  Considering the age, grade and history of the coins, the price for them seems remarkably low.

ATTRACTIVE OLD LATVIAN SILVER COINS

Latvia 1 Lats 1924 KM7Latvia silver 2 Lati 1925-1926
Latvia gained its freedom for the first time in hundreds of years following the collapse of Czarist Russia in 1918. Latvia's freedom - and its coinage - turned out to be short lived. In 1940, after the signing of a secret pact between Stalin and Hitler, Soviet troops occupied the country and annexed it into the Soviet Union. Latvia would not again regain its independence until the 1991 collapse of the Soviet Union.  During its brief period of independence between the World Wars Latvia issued only three silver coins.  We offer all three of these attractive and historic silver coins. The 1 Lat is dated 1924.  It is 23mm in diameter, weights 5 grams and contains .1342 troy ounces of silver.  It features the Latvian arms supported by a lion and a griffon on one side and the denomination on the other.  The denomination is on one side while the other depicts the Greater Latvian Coat-of-Arms, supported by a Lion and a Griffon.  The silver 2 Lati was struck only 2 years; 1925 and 1926. The 27mm coin contains .2684 grams of silver. It has a design similar to the 1 Lats featuring  Latvian arms on one side and the denomination on the other.  They are all attractive and historic silver coins.
