Mauritania, 6 Coin Mint Set
Mauritania at the top of the African continent is rather strange. It
was one of the last places in the world to outlaw Slavery. It
also is very difficult to get coins out of the country. We know one coin
dealer who was placed in jail for trying. So when we were offered this
set, we jumped at the chance.
There are six coins all in Brilliant Uncirculated condition, two of
which are bi-metallic. The coins are so new they are not listed in the
catalogue. You get the 1/5th Ouguiya with a fish, 1 Ouguiya with a
coffee pot, 2 Ouguiya with musical instruments, 5 Ouguiya with scientific
tools, 10 Ouguiya with a bull and the 10 Ouguiya with a
Camel. A tough set to get and all BU.
