Lebanon, 5 coin Mint Set

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 in the world and starting to regain its stature. We are very lucky to be able to get a 5 coin Mint Set from 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.

Pair of World War II Medals

The ‚War Medal’ has the crowned bust of King George VI and the green, black and orange ribbon. The second medal is The ‚Defence Medal’ with the bare head of the King and the red, white and blue ribbon. The colours on the Defence Medal ribbons mean quite a lot, we were told as follows: Green is for the green fields of England, Orange represents burning during the Blitz and Black for the German Swastika.
