Origin: This collection is a complete World War II display piece, bringing together coins from every major power in the Allied Four Powers and the Axis Tripartite Pact

No matter the country, World War II coins were made with one goal in mind: low costs. Typical coin metals like copper and silver were thrown out in favor of cheaper ones like steel, aluminum, or zinc. The war even drove the United States mint to produce the "steel war penny" in 1943, because copper had to be conserved for making bullets. Some nations like Japan even resorted to plastic or porcelain coins, which are quite rare today.

All of these coins are unique to the World War II era, and bear the scars of the time. Though how we remember history's greatest conflict may be up for debate, one thing is for certain—we shall never forget it.

Each collection comes with a Certificate of Authenticity, as well as info cards for each coin.

Actually, many relics are able to be owned by anyone.

Typically, museums only want to display items that are either very rare or incredibly well preserved. This leaves many items that don't make the cut, and these are able to be owned by individuals.

While the items we sell aren't "museum grade," they still carry with them the same amount of history and uniqueness. Each relic was still hand made by a person, hundreds or even thousands of years ago.

One of our core values is not to damage or alter any of the artifacts we sell.

History needs to be preserved—after all, there is a limited amount of it that survives—but it is also something to be shared with the masses. For this reason, we put our relics in sturdy display cases that are safe to handle, but are mindful that someday the relic may need to be taken out again.

No glue or resin holds the items in place. Instead, we're developed our own method for holding the relics securely in their displays using pressure alone. In fact, any of our relics can be removed in their original condition by simply opening the display case.
