Two proof crowns from the Democratic Republic of the Congo honouring the late Princess
Diana. The first is for when she met Pope John Paul II in 1985. The other was when she
was on her visit to India in 1992.
Each 5 Franc coin is full crownsized and heavily silver plated, struck in choice Proof condition
and comes in a capsule. A great pair at a great price, but supplies are very limited. We feel
that they should be sold as a pair and at our price we think you will agree, but supplies are limited.
This is one Olympic coin or crown you almost
never see. It was issued by the Republic of the
Congo in 1999, for the Sydney, Australia Olympics
held in 2000. You have a shot putter getting ready
for the throw with a Greek God to his side. The
other side has a native figure holding up a tablet
like the 10 Commandments reading ‘Unite Travail
It is full crownsized and has the denomination of
100 Francs and is struck in Uncirculated cupronickel.
There were quite a few Olympic coins
issued over the years, but this is one that you almost
never see. Get it while you can, after all the
Olympics are quickly coming up…
