Cuba, 1 Peso Ice Hockey

This cupronickel One Peso was issued by Cuba in 1983 for the Winter Olympics held in Sarajevo. It should be noted that the mintage is a very small 3,000 pieces, which in today’s collecting terms can almost be called rare. The coins have two ice hockey players facing off and the obverse has the arms of Cuba. I think this whole series is much under appreciated and one day that might well change.

Congo, Scarce Congo Olympic Shot Putt Crown

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 Progress’. 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…

Cuba, 1 Peso 1985 Bosque FAO CN Unc

This cupronickel One Peso was issued by Cuba in 1985 as part of the United Nations FAO programme. The mintage is just 5,000 and the current Krause catalogue price is $10.00(£6.45) which we think is too low for such a low mintage. You have a modern rendition of a rainforest on one side and the arms of Cuba on the other side. The coin is in Uncirculated condition and now some 33 years old. We think this coin is being sold too cheaply, but in the spirit of giving you a bargain, here we are!
