Papua New Guinea, Pair of Large Coins
On a recent trip to Germany I found a small quantity of two almost crownsized coins of Papua New Guinea. They were issued just 4 years apart, but boy are they different…! The 1 Kina of 2004 is a two year only type coin. The obverse has two fresh water crocodiles on it and it has a hole in the middle. The coin is 33.28mm in diameter and they are in Uncirculated condition. The 2 Kina of 2008 is a one year type coin and was issued to honour the 35th anniversary of the Bank of Papua New Guinea. It is bi-metallic and is also in Uncirculated condition.
