The problems with getting Mint Sets from the Middle East are twofold. Firstly, the currencies are quite strong so they are expensive to get and, secondly, they don’t like you taking the coins out of the country. Like many countries the face value of many of the coins is less than it costs to make them.

This is a set of five coins of Bahrain issued between 1992 and 1995 and all are in Brilliant Uncirculated condition. You have the 5, 10, 25, 50 and 100 Fils. The largest coin is bimetallic and because of religious reasons they cannot have pictures on them. Rather simple design but very difficult to get out of the country.

Republic of Burundi, Mint Set of 4

Republic of Burundi Mint Set of 4. The Republic of Burundi is not one of the African nations that one hears a lot about. It is one of the smallest countries in Africa and is also landlocked. Not all that many people go there and far fewer of them have their coins. We can offer you a four coin Mint Set in Uncirculated condition. You get the 1, 5, 10 and 50 Franc coins from 2003-2011 in Brilliant Uncirculated condition. They are most unusual designs and I think rather modern and still interesting. If you want exotic coins from an exotic country then these are them. Not easy to find and certainly not easy to get.

Trans-Dniester Republic, set of 4 coins

The autonomous region called the Trans-Dniester Republic issued a most unusual set of coins in 2014. They are made of a composite material, are semi-transparant and have a textured surface. This was originally part of the Russian Federation but is now ‘independent’. They are a plastic type material but with a hardness that produces a stone like sound when rubbed. They were issued by the Trans-Dniester Republic Bank and there are 4 denominations. 1 Rouble circular, 3 Roubles square with rounded corners, 5 Roubles pentagon shaped with rounded corners and 10 Roubles hexagonal with the rounded corners. They have the rounded corners for ease of use and for ease of machine readability at high speeds. These were an experiment and who knows if they will continue to issue them. But we thought that they were very interesting and rather well priced so we obtained 100 sets of them. Supplies are limited.
