This is a set of seven Ecu's that was originally issued by the International Currency Bureau to show what the new European Ecus were going to look like. Unfortunately, they decided to call the new coins Euros and not Ecus, but this set is still a very important part of our numismatic heritage.

Each set comes in a full colour presentation folder with seven different denominations. There is the full crown sized 5 Ecu plus the 1/10, 1/4 and 1/2 Ecu, plus the 1, 2, 5 and 10 Ecus as well. The presentation of this set is outstanding and it is something which you will be proud to have in your collection as well as giving them as gifts.

These are the coins that never were...

England 25 Ecu

In 1992 everyone thought that the new European currency would be called the Ecu. Of course, they were wrong, it ended up being called Euro. Some privately issued patterns were struck, they are crownsized and contain the nominal value of 25 Ecus. You have St. George slaying the dragon on one side and Neptune and Europa on either side of a globe of the world with England below. The examples we have are those struck in brass, which is the scarcest metal they were struck in. These are full crownsized and Prooflike condition, you can add one to your collection for just a very reasonable price and remember that this metal is the scarcest of the lot.

United States of America, Medal on Cent

This Scarce medal was struck by the Philadelphia Mint on a blank that would have been usually used for a US Cent. They were made for a special Mint Set that was only released in Great Britain. You have the shield of the arms of the US Treasurey on one side. The other side has a giant ‘P’ to show that it was minted at the Philadelphia Mint. These coin/medals are in Uncirculated condition and as far as we can find out, we are the only coin dealers offering them. An interesting and scarce addition to your collection.

Northern Ireland, 25 Ecu CN 1992

In 1992 everyone thought that the new European currency was going to be called the Ecu. So International Numismatic Agency (INA) made a private pattern Ecu to show what a Northern Ireland issue might look like, if it were ever issued, in other words a Patina. It is crownsized and struck in Prooflike cupro-nickel. On one side a woman playing the harp along with the denomination ‘Twenty-Five Ecu’ and the date 1992. The other side has a globe showing Europe with Neptune and Britannia on either side of the globe. The legend reads ‘Europe * Europa and N. Ireland’. These are now 27 years old and it has been quite sometime since we last offered them for sale. Just found a small group in one of vault rooms. If you collect Irish coins, Euro or Ecu coins, then this is the piece for you…
