    This is my latest buy a 1944 dated Egyptian 2 Piastres coin featuring King Farouk and made from .500 silver.
    This coin replaced the earlier round coin that was made of a higher silver content of .833, the new coin was still minted at the Royal London Mint in England, not sure why they chose a hexagonal shape this time, but it means I have to get some more capsules to fit it in.
    This coin was made for one year only in 1944, all latest official sources (Krause/NGC etc) claim that only 32,000 coins were made, making it the rarest of all my coins so far, independent sources claim it was 32 million, I am believing the official accounts until they say otherwise, partly because King Farouk was really starting to losing favour with his populace at this time.

    Its a shame its hard to show lustre on the coins without using artificial light or videoing it.

    I have shown it compared to the previous 1937 dated type, 2 Piastres I bought a few weeks ago.

    Want to show this amazing rarity: the George IV 1829 half sovereign mule with 1823 reverse. Ex Terner collection, PCGS PR64CAM. Only 2 are known and the other one is impounded in the Royal Mint collection. The Royal Mint actually struck 4,205 half sovereigns during 1829, but all with 1828 dies.

    0. As in fact there isn't even a jar,as this is all some sort of fugue state I find myself in,probably brought on by the kippers I had for supper,so please leave me alone as I go out to count the marshmallows currently sprouting on my pineapple bush. Goodnight.

    Well done, Bullion By Post.
    It's the original 1/4 oz coin commemorating the 200th anniversary of the Gold Standard.  And then, pictured with its younger sisters (note the slightly different legend on the later coins).
