During the reign of King George VI Canada issued five different types of 5 Cent coins, commonly
known as nickels. The first type was the round one with the beaver, the second type was
1942 in tombac with the beaver, the third type was the V for Victory in tombac, the fourth was V for
Victory in steel and the last was the commemorative for Nickel 1781-1951 in nickel.
We can offer a collection of all five types of George VI nickels in Fine or better condition. A
wonderful little set and more and more difficult to put together these days. Our agent had to make
two trips to Canada to get these sets.
Australia WMF Silver Dollar Set of 3 Special. In 2016 for the World Money Fair held in Berlin, Alphabet Coins Germany, the Australian Mint issued a special set of 3 small Dollar Coins in Silver. Each is struck in
Frosted Uncirculated, which we call reverse Proof and weighs 11.66 grams. Only 1,000 sets were made for the World Money Fair, one coin with a yellow W, one with a orange M and one with a red F.
The set comes in a full colour information card
that depicts Australian birds and animals. The
Queen is on the obverse of each coin and it is a
rather handsome and low mintage set. I don’t even
think they were offered in Australia, but only for
sale at the Fair in Berlin.
I would guess that this set should sell for about
£105-£125, but we bought them right and are going
to sell them right. Our price is just £49.50 for the set
of three in the colour folder, but supplies are very
limited. That works out to less than £17 each, trybuying
a silver coin today for that price.

Australia Square ‘1920’ Pattern Set. In the early 1920’s the Australian Mint made pattern Pennies and Halfpennies that were square. They didn’t work so they never issued them. ICB made some crownsized square Australian patterns to emulate these square patterns of the 1920’s.
The ‘1920’ set which has a bird flying through the ‘5’ of the denomination. Each set contains a Sterling Silver example, a copper example and a goldine example, so each set contains 3 pieces.
Republic of Burundi Mint Set of 4. The Republic of Burundi is not one of the African nations that one
hears a lot about. It is one of the smallest countries in Africa and is also landlocked. Not all that many people go there and far fewer of them have their coins. We can offer you a four coin Mint Set in
You get the 1, 5, 10 and 50 Franc coins from 2003-2011 in Brilliant Uncirculated condition. They are most unusual designs and I think rather modern and still interesting. If you want exotic coins from an exotic country then these are them. Not easy to find and certainly not easy to get.
