    Antique coins and Her Majesty The Queen

    Antique coins and Her Majesty The Queen

    I love the idea of collecting antique coins, although I never seem to find the time to start. I never seem to be in the right place at the right time to find a antique coin worth collecting and I care little for the specially created commemoration coins that are sold every time there’s something to celebrate, usually royal. I can’t quite understand the logic of paying a large amount for a coin that’s brand spanking new and has never been in circulation. But that’s just me.

    Antique  coins however, have a totally different effect on me. I wish I could start up a collection of my own, but I’d be tempted to carry them around in my pocket like loose change, hoping to capture some essence of the previous owner, perhaps the last person that would have carried those coins around in their pockets, perhaps hundreds of years before, rubbing their fingers over the rough edges, mulling over minor problems, gazing into the middle distance turning the coins over and over in their hands, working their way through various day to day worries. If you were to hold one in your hand for more than a few seconds, would you be able to capture one of those memories?

    Her Majesty Queen Elisabeth

    There are not enough words to describe this incredible Lady and Queen. Throughout her life she has been the epitome of courage strength kindness and undertaking.

    We will all truly miss her leadership, knowledge guidance and compassion.
