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.
A nice group of Egyptian coins all in Uncirculated condition. It is hard to find Uncirculated
modern coins, as they are used every day and therefore usually come circulated. You get
the 10 Milliemes, 5 Piastres and 10 Piastres of about 1960 plus the 5 & 10 Piastres commemoratives
of the 1st anniversary of the October War (1974).
An interesting set and one that is very difficult to put together today, especially in
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.
4 Chinese coins in Brilliant Uncirculated condition. Krause now list them at
some very high prices in Brilliant Uncirculated condition. We have
had them a long time, so we can sell them to you at a reasonable price.
1 Fen 1983 ($15), 2 Fen 1987 ($8), 5 Fen 1990 ($12) and 1 Jiao
1996 ($4.50). All are struck in aluminium and all are Brilliant
Uncirculated. Total catalogue value is $39.50 (£30). Our price is very attractive; if we don’t sell them all, we will take them to Hong Kong
and sell them.
We have managed to put together a huge set of 12 different Polish coins, all are in
Uncirculated condition except for the 1929 1 Zloty which is only Very Fine. You have
1 Zloty 2 different sizes, 2 Zloty 2 different sizes, 5 Zloty 2 different sizes, 10 Zloty 3 different
sizes, 20, 50 and 100 Zloty. They date from 1929 to 1998. All are Uncirculated except for
the 1929 1 Zloty.
This set is becoming more and more difficult to put together and once these 50 sets are
gone, they are gone. Well worth adding to your collection and remember you get 12 different
This set was made up by the Swedish Mint in 1984; it contains all six coins issued
for circulation. But the coins are in Prooflike Uncirculated and far better than the
normal coins would look like. The set comes in a blue and gold hard plastic case,
showing both sides of the coins.
The set contains the 5, 10, 25 & 50 Ore as well as the 1 & 5 Kronor coins all in
Prooflike Uncirculated condition. The set is now 35 years old and I would guess not
all that easy to find. The set is sealed by the Swedish Royal Mint.
