CANADA 1964 CHARLOTTETOWN SILVER DOLLAR Restocked

Canada 1964 silver dollar commemorating 100th anniversary of Charlottetown and Qubec conferencesCanada young head silver dollarCanada issued a circulating commemorative silver dollar in 1964 to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the Charlottetown and Quebec Conferences.  The conferences laid the groundwork for the establishment of the Dominion of Canada in 1867. The Charlottetown Conference was held in Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island in September 1864. Initially the conference was to discuss a union of the Maritime colonies, but was expanded to include the Province of Canada as well.  Britain encouraged the union, hoping the colonies would become less dependent on the Crown and provide for greater economic and military power for the region in light of the American Civil War.   A circus came to Charlottetown the same week, the first one to visit in over 20 years. Folks were much more interested in the circus than politics.  Workers left their jobs and folks from all over the island came into town which made accommodations difficult for the delegates.  A second conference was held in Quebec the following month.  The Quebec Conference created 72 Resolutions which laid the foundation for unifying the colonies.  The resolutions covered a wide range of issues, from governmental powers to building railroads.   The coin depicts young Queen Elizabeth on the obverse.  The reverse features an emblem incorporating the French fleur-de-lis, the Irish shamrock, the Scottish thistle, and the English rose representing the main nationalities that settled Canada.   Around it is the legend "CHARLOTTETOWN • QUÉBEC", the dates "1864" and "1964".  The 36mm coin is struck in .800 fine silver and contains .6  troy ounces of silver.

Poarch Creek Nation 2004 - 2008 silver dollars
The Poarch Creek Indians are descendent of the original Creek Nation, which once covered almost all of Alabama and Georgia. Unlike many eastern Indian tribes, the Poarch Creeks were not removed from their tribal lands and have lived together for almost 200 years in and around their reservation in Poarch, Alabama. In 1984 the United States government officially recognized the tribe. They are the only federally recognized tribe in Alabama.  In 2004 the tribe authorized its first coins to commemorate the 20th anniversary of their recognition as a tribe by the United States government.  Two different 1 troy ounce .999 fine silver 40mm 1 dollar coins were struck for the tribe each year from 2004 to 2007.  Only 20,000 of each were struck in Brilliant Uncirculated condition. It is now difficult to find a complete set of these attractive coins.

SCARCE SILVER COINS FROM STATES OF THE GERMAN EMPIRE

Common reverse of German States 5 MarkCommon reverse of German States 2 MarkThe German Empire, also called the Second Reich or the Kaiserreich, lasted from the unification of Germany under Kaiser Wilhelm I in 1871 until the abdication of Wilhelm II in 1918 when Germany was defeated in World War I.  The formerly independent German states were allowed to issue coins in denominations of 2 Marks or higher.  The coins were all struck to the same standards.  The 2 Mark was 28mm and contained .3215 troy ounces of silver, the 3 Mark was 33mm and contained .4823 ounces of silver, the 5 Mark was 38mm and contained .8037 troy ounces of silver.  The coins were all struck in .900 fine silver. Most had a common reverse featuring the crowned imperial German Eagle and a lettered edge "GOTT MIT UNS" (God with us).  The smaller states issued only a few coins, most with low mintages, marking special events.  Many coins were melted during World War I, the German Inflation and World War II, making them scarce today.



NEWSILVER 3 MARKS OF THE GERMAN KINGDOMS

Germany silver 3 Marks of Baden, Bavaria, Prussia, Saxony and Wurttemberg
The unification of Germany in 1871 was brought about by the merger of the four independent kingdoms of Bavaria, Prussia, Saxony and Wurttemberg, along with 22 other Grand Duchies, Duchies, Principalities and Free Cities.  William II, the King of Prussia was given a new title of Kaiser (Emperor) of the German Empire.  After unification, the formerly independent states were allowed to issue coins denominated over 1 Mark.  The coins were all struck to the same standards and circulated throughout Germany.  In 1908 the silver 3 Mark coin was introduced. The odd denomination was equivalent to, and replaced the Vereinsthalers that had been minted by Prussia and other northern German states prior to unification that were still in circulation.  With the advent of World War I production of the coins came to an end and the silver 3 Mark was demonetized in 1918. We are pleased to offer silver 3 Mark coins from each of the four kingdoms as well as the Grand Duchy of Baden. The coins depict the King or Grand Duke on the obverse.  The coins all use common reverse featuring the crowned imperial German Eagle, denomination and date.  They all have a lettered edge "GOTT MIT UNS" (God with us).  Each coin is 33mm and contains .4823 troy ounces of silver.

HESSE-DARMSTADT COMMEMORATES PHILIP THE MAGNANIMOUS

NEWHesse-Darmstade 2 Mark 1914 Philip the MagnanimousThe German Grand Duchy of Hesse-Darmstadt commemorated the 400th anniversary of the birth of Philip the Magnanimous with this silver 1904 2 Mark coin. It portrays the busts of Philip and Ernst Ludwig, who was the current Grand Duke of Hesse.  Below the busts is the date of Philip's birth, November 13, and the years 1504 - 1904.  At age 17, Phillip met Martin Luther at the Diet of Worms. He became a strong supporter of the Protestant Reformation.  Martin Luther did not approve of Philip's lifestyle however, stating that he lived "constantly in a state of adultery and fornication", which was probably true given that he had two wives. Promiscuity seems to have run in the family.  Ernst Ludwig was the grandson of Queen Victoria.   His first marriage to his first cousin, a granddaughter of Queen Victoria, turned out badly.  Though they were famous for their parties for their young friends (anyone over 30 was too old), they did not get along well.  They would have loud, physical arguments. She went on to spend vast sums in expenses and at the card-tables in Monte Carlo. He was homosexual and it was said that "no boy was safe, from the stable hands to the kitchen help. He slept quite openly with them all."  Victoria did not approve of divorce, so they remained married until shortly after Victoria died in 1901.  The 28mm coin is struck .900 fine silver and contains .3215 troy ounces of silver. The reverse features the crowned imperial German eagle.   It has a mintage of only 100,000 pieces and is one of the few coins issued by Hesse-Darmstadt after the unification of Germany.

BAVARIA COMMEMORATES 90th BIRTHDAY OF PRINCE REGENT LUITPOLD

In 1912 Luitpold died and his son succeeded him as regent.

FIRST SILVER COINS OF THE GERMAN EMPIRE

Germany 20 Pfennig coin KM5Germany 50 Pfennig coin KM6Germany 1 Mark coin 1873-1887 KM7
For most if its history Germany was little more than a loose collection of independent and semi-independent states.  The country was finally unified in 1871 under Prussian King Wilhelm I as emperor of Germany.  The first three silver coins of the German Empire were the 20 Pfennig, 50 Pfennig and 1 Mark.   The three coins had similar designs, with the denomination and date on the obverse and the crowned imperial German eagle on the reverse. The 20 Pfennig was struck for only five years, 1873 to 1877. Its small size, it was only 16mm, made it unpopular as it was easy to loose.   The 50 Pfennig was struck only three years, from 1875 to 1877 (and 1877 is rare).  It was also unpopular as it was easily confused with the copper-nickel 10 Pfennig which had the same reverse design, a similar obverse design, and was only 1mm different in size.  The 1 Mark was struck from 1873 until 1887, after which the reverse was revised with a larger imperial eagle. It was 24mm and contained .1606 troy ounces of silver. All three coins were struck in .900 fine silver.

SCARCE 2020 MEXICAN 1 OUNCE SILVER LIBERTAD  

Mexico 2020 1 troy ounce silver LibertadDue to COVID-19 shutdowns, production of the 2020 1 ounce silver Mexican Libertad is far less than previous years.  Many distributors were unable to get their regular supplies or quickly sold out.   We were able to get a small quantity of these popular but scarce coins.  On one side of the coin is the Victory Angel that is on the top of the Mexican Independence monument in Mexico City.   In the background are the Popocatépetl and Iztaccihuatl volcanoes. The gold-plated statue is 22 feet (6.7 meters) high and weighs 7 tons (6350 kg.).  The other side depicts the historical coats-of-arms of Mexico, with the current arms in the center.  It is interesting to see the progression of the design over time.  The 40mm Brilliant Uncirculated coin contains 1 troy ounce of .999 fine silver.

RUSSIAN NUCLEAR ICEBREAKER ON ULTRA-HIGH RELIEF SILVER COIN

Niue silver 2 Dollars coin 2019, Russian Arktika class Nuclear powered IcebreakerThis impressive, ultra-high relief, 1 troy ounce silver 2 Dollar coin of Niue depicts a Russian Arktika class nuclear powered icebreaker. Russia is the only nation to have built nuclear icebreakers. The huge ships are designed to break through the polar ice along the Northern Sea Route, from the Barents Sea to Bering Strait, clearing the way for cargo and other ships.  The ships were the first surface vessels to North Pole.  Since 1989, some of the icebreakers have been used for Arctic tourist cruises. The 40mm .999 fine, 1 troy ounce silver coin had an authorized mintage of 999 pieces of which only 750 were struck. The coin has a satin-antique finish.  Queen Elizabeth is on the obverse.  I am not sure what the connection is between icebreakers and the tropical island of Niue, but it is a very nice coin with an attractive ship design.

EARLY DATED SILVER COIN OF POLAND-LITHUANIA

Poland - Lithuania silver 1/2 Grossus (Groschen) of Sigismund II AugustusUntil the 1600's most nations did not put dates on coins. These silver 1/2 Grossus (Groschen) coins of Sigismund II Augustus from the 1500's are some of the earliest affordable coins bearing an AD date.  Sigismund was both the King of Poland and Grand Duke of Lithuania.  In 1569 he formally united the two countries with the Treaty of Lublin to form the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth.  His coins reflect this dual nationality.  One side features his titles as Grand Duke of Lithuania, and Vytas, the White Knight, which is the national symbol of Lithuania.  Below Vytas is the date.  The other side features the Polish Eagle and his titles as King of Poland.  The 19mm silver coins date from 1547 to 1572.  In 1572 Sigsmund died childless, despite having three wives (two of which were first cousins) and carrying on affairs with "two of the most beautiful of his countrywomen".  He was the last of the powerful Jagiellonian dynasty controlled much of central Europe for almost 200 years.

SERBIA HONORS TESLA ON SILVER COINS

Serbia 1 troy ounce silver Tesla 100 Dinara coins - 2019 Remote Control, 2020 X-Rays, 2021 Wardenclyffe Tower-Free Energy
Nikola Tesla was a Serbian American inventor, electrical engineer, physicist, and futurist.  He is said to have over 300 patents covering a wide range of technologies including alternating current, electric motors, remote control, television, radio, x-rays, cell phones, robotics, lasers, turbine engines, magnetic propulsion, drones, solar power, weather manipulation, particle beams and electromagnetic energy (the Tesla coil). He was a brilliant inventor, but a poor businessman.  Despite his many important and revolutionary inventions he died alone and penniless in New York in 1943.
   Serbia instituted an annual series of silver 100 Dinara coins honoring Tesla and his many inventions.  The 40.25mm coins each contain 1 troy ounce of .999 silver  and are struck by the Serbian Mint.  The Serbian arms, weight, purity, silver content, date, denomination and one or more of his inventions are on the reverses.  
   The 2019 coin commemorated the 120th anniversary of his invention of remote control and wireless transmission.  In 1898 Tesla demonstrated the technology with a radio-controlled four-foot long stealth boat, which is depicted on the coin.   He expected the technology to be picked up by the United States Navy, but the Navy brass would have none of it.  Ironically, less than two decades later the German navy used remotely controlled boats loaded with explosives to attack Allied ships during World War I.  Only recently has the United States Navy started serious work with remote control ships.   The coin has a mintage of 20,059 pieces in BU.
    The 2020 coin honored Tesla's early work with X-rays.  Nikola Tesla was one of the early discoverers of X-rays.  His first X-ray images, which he called shadowgraphs, were done in 1894, a year before Wilhelm Röntgen published his discovery of X-rays in 1895. He was one of the first to recognize some of the benefits of X-rays, such as the finding of foreign objects within a body and the detection of lung diseases.  He was also one of the first to recognize the hazards of X-ray radiation. Unfortunately, most of his work was lost when his laboratory burned down in 1895.  The coin has a mintage of 19,812 in BU.
   The 2021 issue depicts his famed Wardenclyffe Tower.  The 187 foot (57m) tall tower on Long Island was supposed be able to distribute free energy to all.  Foreshadowing the Internet, it would allow one to call any telephone in the world and allow one to hear music or speeches delivered anywhere.  The ambitious project failed on two counts:  Tesla could not figure out how to recover the costs of the project if everything was free, and the technology did not work.

NEW19th CENTURY SILVER SPANISH 2 PESETAS

Spain silver 2 Pesetas 1870 KM654Spain silver 2 Pesetas 1882 KM678
These two silver 2 Peseta coins were struck during a turbulent period of Spanish history.  In 1868 the unpopular Queen Isabella II was overthrown and a provisional government was set up.  One of the reforms of the provisional government was to join the Latin Monetary System, which was already in use in France, Italy Switzerland and Belgium.  This silver 2 Peseta depicts liberty seated holding an olive branch on the obverse.  The reverse has the Spanish coat of arms and the inscription "100 PIEZAS EN KILOGRAMO" (100 pieces in kilogram) to indicate the weight of the coin.  Though the coin has the date 1870, it was struck from 1870 to 1875. In 1870 the provisional government selected Amadeo, son of Italian king Victor Emmanuel II to be their new king.  Due to numerous rebellions, he abdicated in 1873 and a republic as declared.  The Republic proved to be short-lived.  After a coup d'etat the Bourbon monarchy was restored in December 1874, with Alfonso XII, son of Isabella II, as king.  Alfonso became known as "The Peacemaker" due to his moderate policies.   He died in 1885 at the young age of 27.  His portrait is on the obverse of this 1882 2 Peseta.  The reverse depicts the arms of Spain with legend indicating that he is the constitutional king of Spain.  Both coins contain .2685 troy ounces of silver.

The 20.15mm, .500 fine coin was minted from 1917 to 1925.  Rama VI had a difficult time following up on the successful modernization reforms of his father King Chulalongkorn (Rama V).  His "Westernization" reforms included founding the first University in Thailand, introduction of Scouting in Thailand, introducing compulsory education, and having Thai's adopt last names (Previously only first names were used). Being a gifted writer he even invented last names for his citizens.
