East India Company gold coins
PureJewels is delighted to be an authorised stockist of East India Company gold coins. EIC gold and silver coins are struck in very limited quantities, usually 500-1000, and quickly become coveted collectors’ items.
If we had to choose a favourite, we might pick the Mahatma Gandi coin collection, which is available from PureJewels as a complete set of five silver coins. The highly sought-after Diamond Jubilee Coin has very limited availability, but – inlaid with more than 100 diamonds – it is spectacular!
The East India Company has an incredibly rich, 400-year history of global trading. When it set sail in 1600 the company started to produce coins as a tradeable commodity, perceiving the universal value of precious metal, and soon became the biggest bullion trader in the world. The East India Company is also – according to legend – responsible for introducing tea to England, when it made a gift of tea leaves to King Charles II. Today the East India Company still sells its finest food and gifts from all over the world, representing the far reach of its historical travels.
