Italy Set of 5 pre-Euro Coins

Italy, like many European countries, had its own coinage before the Euro, but even then they were of very little value and almost no one put them away. As I remember there were about 2260 Lira to the Pound. The coins cost far more to make than their face value. Just to make it more interesting, the smaller coins have the largest denominations! You get the 5, 10, 20, 50, and 100 Lire coins of Italy dated between 1992 and 1998. All five coins are in Uncirculated condition and very difficult to find today. We can offer the five pre-Euro coins of Italy now almost 20 years old and in Uncirculated condition for just £4.95. A most interesting set of coins with a low face value and a high cost of striking.

Russia (USSR), 8 coin Mint Set

This is a set of coins issued under the USSR. They are not easy to find these days, especially in Brilliant Uncirculated conditions. You get the 1, 2, 3, 5, 10, 15, 20, and 50 Kopeks. They are dated between 1979 and 1990. At the time these were issued it was extremely difficult to get coins out of Russia, especially Uncirculated coins. But when you know some people that know some people… Remember that all eight coins were not struck every year, so to complete the set took many years. We think this is a very interesting set of coins. Richard and Claire have visited Russia 3 or 4 times and they don’t remember seeing many coins in use, let alone Uncirculated coins...

Picture of New Djibouti, Mint Set

New Djibouti, Mint Set

From Africa we offer a Brilliant Uncirculated set of coins from a rather exotic sounding county, Djibouti. It use to be called Afars and Issas in 1967. It is near all the busiest shipping lanes in the world. The Capital has the same name as the country. The last time we had another set from this country it quickly sold out and this set has a new bi-metallic coin. You get the large 5 Francs with an antelope on it, 10 Francs with old and new ships, 20 Francs of the same design, 50 Francs with a mother and baby camel, 100 Francs with a similar design and the new 250 Francs, bi-metallic with a most unusual bird on it. You get all six coins from Djibouti in Brilliant Uncirculated condition for an impressive price. It is very difficult to get there and almost impossible to get the coins out of the country.
