1992 Ecu Mint Set

This is a set of seven Ecu’s that was originally issued by the International Currency Bureau

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.

Greece, 25 Euro Pattern 1996 C N

This crownsized pattern 25 Euros was issued by International Currency Bureau in 1996; it was not issued by the Greek government. On one side you have the Discus Thrower from the ancient Olympic Games. On the other side you have a galley vessel, again of ancient times. This coin is struck in Prooflike Uncirculated Cupro-nickel and is now some 22 years old. Not an easy pre-euro pattern to find and most of the pieces were shipped to Greece. I have bought out one of the original parties that made this piece and therefore I can offer them at a wonderful price. You can add one to your collection for just £7.95, at this price you might want to own more than one…
