Endangered Wildlife Set of 4

This is a fantastic set of four crownsized 10 Kwacha coins from Malawi. They depict four endangered animals: Tree Pangolin, Chevrotain, Lemur and Pygmy- Hippo. The coat of arms of Malawi are on the obverse. Interesting history, these are copper coins which have been heavily silver plated before striking. At the time no information was available and everyone thought they were solid silver. But they are silver plated Proofs, each in a protective capsule. The set use to sell for £120 when they thought they were silver, even as silver plated the set still catalogues at about £54.00. But we bought them right so we are going to sell them right!

Scarce Maldive U N Crown

The Maldives, a nation of many islands, joined the Royal Mint’s series of crownsized coins to honour the 50th Anniversary of the United Nations in 1996. The Maldives are in jeopardy of disappearing due to the rising oceans, one day they might just not exist. You have the United Nations building in New York with the 50th Anniversary emblem on one side and the arms of the Maldives on the other side. Unfortunately this Royal Mint series really didn’t take off, so today these crownsized Rufiyaa coins are difficult to find. All our coins are in Brilliant Uncirculated condition and are now some 22 years old.
