Legend says one of the first gifts given by Saint Nicholas was coins. Imagine now, instead of one coin tucked into that special person's stocking, a whole chest of coins is waiting to be found!
Each chest is packed with 35 coins from around the world, including a special colorized Santa Washington quarter and a U.S. Golden Dollar. Also includes a Merry Christmas translation sheet, custom scroll and Certificate of Authenticity.
A classy way to wear a unique piece of United States history!
Indian Head penny (dated from 1859 to 1909) has been hand painted to highlight the portrait, words and date, then set into a gold-plated bezel and hung on an chain.
Makes a nice gift for coin collectors who seem to have "everything."
Has it really been over 70 years since "A Day Of Infamy"?
Coin set includes a 1941 nickel, a 1942 war nickel (minted in silver to save nickel for the war effort), a 1943 steel penny (the only regular issue U.S. coin that can be picked up with a magnet) and a 1944 "shell-case" penny.
Plus, a BONUS Pearl Harbor documentary DVD which contains over 25 survivor interviews from both American and Japanese veterans, some whose stories have never been told. With extra features like classic war trailers.
The Kennedy half dollar, first minted in 1964, was authorized by Congress just over a month after his assassination. All half dollars struck in 1975 and 1976 bore the double date 1776-1976 on the obverse to celebrate the country's bicentennial.
Here, John F. Kennedy's profile and Independence Hall (on reverse) have been highlighted by hand in 24-kt gold to enhance the historic coin.
The Admiral Gardner was sailing along in 1809 when it was caught in a gale and sunk. In its cargo hold was 48 tons of East India Company copper tokens, which had been designated as currency to pay native workers. One side bears the East India Company coat of arms, the other shows a Persian inscription.
Some of these copper coins were recovered in 1985... but most remain on the sunken ship, which is now buried in shifting sands.
Here is your own piece of shipwreck history!
Highest Denomination U.S. Currency!
Don't you wish you had these notes in your billfold? The $5000 gold certificate was in use from 1929 to 1933 while the last $10,000 and $100,000 gold certificates were issued in 1934 (but never authorized for public circulation). In 1939, all gold certificates were recalled!
Genuine U.S. notes like these are either illegal to own, or none are thought to exist in private hands. This 3-piece non-monetary tribute set recreates these rare high demonetization gold certificates in gleaming 22-kt gold leaf.
Spectacular collection includes 5 proof coins (penny, nickel, dime, quarter and half dollar) for each of the following decades: 1960s, 1970s, 1980s and 1990s.
These mint coin proofs are extraordinarily brilliant, with sharp relief and a mirror-like background. The frosted, sculpted foregrounds give them a special cameo effect. Each coin is sealed in a protective acrylic case, and the entire collection is presented in a wood display case.
This is a wonderful set to pass down to the next generation.
Celebrate Rivera's 18-year career with a handsome 2-sided acrylic coin card featuring a color collage of the pitcher in action, along with a summary of his vital stats, All-Star, and MVP accomplishments.
The silver-plated custom medallion is visible from both sides.
Did you know that over 100 years ago, an Indian chief and the Buffalo appeared on paper money?
In 1899 an Indian Chief in full headdress appeared on the $5 silver certificate (which caused an uproar in the Sioux nation, as Chief Running Antelope's headdress had been replaced by a Pawnee war bonnet!) In 1901, an American Buffalo appeared on the $10 note!
Genuine U.S. notes like these are virtually impossible to add to your collection. Here, both the $5 Indian Chief bill and $10 Buffalo bill have been painstakingly recreated in almost 19 mg of .999 pure silver leaf.
Wear a piece of our nation's history around your neck--and know it looks good too!
Here, a Buffalo nickel (minted from 1913 to 1938 and composed of 75% copper and 25% nickel), has been set in a lovely rope bezel, then handpainted to enhance the Native American chief's profile.
The pendant comes on a sterling silver chain.
A new royal is born!
At 4:24 pm on Monday, July 22, 2013, a new prince, George Alexander Louis, was born to Prince William and Kate Middleton. Prince George is now third in line to inherit the throne of Britain.
Genuine $2 bill, issued as legal tender by the US Treasury, has been privately enhanced using patented technology to celebrate the birth of His Royal Highness Prince George of Cambridge.
An amazing opportunity to acquire tribute proofs of some of the rarest and most expensive silver dollars ever issued!
There's the first silver dollar ever struck by the U.S. government in 1794, the 1804 "King Of Silver Dollars" that are so rare one auctioned for as much as $4 million, a 1866 "No Motto" dollar (only 2 known to exist), the 1885 Trade Dollar, that had its legal tender revoked, and a scarce 1889 "Carson City Morgan".
This set includes 5 non-monetary proofs (one of each mentioned above), each clad in 71 mg of .999 pure silver, and displayed in a deluxe case.
