South Africa, Mint Set, 1999
This is a set of 1999 South African coins, but then the fun
begins…The coins are 5c, 50c, 5 Rand and Protea which
is a small sized Silver crown. The three small coins are
Prooflike Uncirculated but the Protea is only listed as a Silver
Proof, which this is. But, and here is the good part, Krause list
the Protea as having a mintage of just 1,500 pieces (KM232).
These coins were bought from the South African
Government and sent to a marketing company in Norway.
They were placed into a presentation folder where the text is
It is all a little confusing to us. But we do know that the
Silver Proof Protea has a very small mintage of just 1,500
pieces. We are going to offer you the complete 1999 South
African Mint Set for just £39.50 which is about half the catalogue
price of the Silver coin alone.
We think this is an excellent buy and would make a most
interesting and exciting present for someone.
