Cyprus 5-coin Mint Set 1963-1983

In 1963 Cyprus issued its first coinage after gaining independence only three years earlier. Before that in 1955, the British colonial authorities decimalised the island’s currency using the “pound-mil” system whereby the pound was subdivided into 1,000 mils. It was not until 1983 that the subdivision was changed to 100 cents to the pound. We can now offer a full set of these post-independence coins showing the name of the country in both Greek and Turkish.
