Mauritania, 6 Coin Mint Set
Mauritania at the top of the African continent is rather strange. It was one of the last places in the world to outlaw Slavery. It also is very difficult to get coins out of the country. We know one coin dealer who was placed in jail for trying. So when we were offered this set, we jumped at the chance. There are six coins all in Brilliant Uncirculated conditions, two of which are bi-metallic. The coins are so new they are not listed in the catalogue. You get the 1/5th Ouguiya with a fish, 1 Ouguiya with a coffee pot, 2 Ouguiya with musical instruments, 5 Ouguiya with scientific tools, 10 Ouguiya with a bull, and the 10 Ouguiya with a Camel. A tough set to get and all BU.
