Italy, set of 5 Italian pre-Euro coins

Before Italy joined the Euro Zone, they, like most countries issued their own coinage. But unlike other countries there were about 3,000 Lire to the Pound. The coins, when you could find them, cost more to make than their face value! We have a collection of five Italian coins struck before the Euro, 4 are Uncirculated but the very difficult 200 Lire is in circulated condition. You get the 5 and 10 Lire in aluminium, the 50 Lire a scarce denomination in Uncirculated, the 100 Lire Uncirculated and the very difficult 200 Lire in circulated condition. They date between 1969-1996 and were difficult to find even before they were replaced by the Euro.

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.
