We have been going over our stock and found that we had two sets of American State quarters in Proof condition, which is more than we need. So we are going to offer them at a special price to entice you to add them to your collection. This 2000 set of five Proof State Quarters includes Massachusetts, Maryland, South Carolina, New Hampshire and Virginia. The 2003 set includes Illinois, Alabama, Maine, Missouri and Arkansas. Both sets are in their original US Mint blue plastic display case, so you can see both sides without having to take them out.
The Lebanon has one of the most interesting histories in the Middle East. At one time it was known
as the Monte Carlo of the Middle East. Then it spent years in turmoil and civil war, now it is starting
to regain its place and stature in the world.
We are very lucky to be able to get a 5 coin Mint Set from The Lebanon, as coins are not all that easy
to get out of the country, especially Brilliant Uncirculated current coins. You get the 25 Livres, 50 Livres,
100 Livres, 250 Livres and the 500 Livres dated 1996-2006 all in Brilliant Uncirculated condition.
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.
