Netherlands, Dutch World War II 3 Coin Type Set

During World War II, despite all the fighting, the people still needed coins in their everyday life. Gresham’s Law is that bad money drives good money out of circulation. Basically that when you issue coins in a base metal, those struck in a precious or semi precious metal will disappear as a means of conserving assets. So in the Netherlands, coins that were originally struck in silver and copper, metals that were useful in the War, were replaced by coins struck in Zinc. This is a grey metal but it was all that was available. We have three different denominations 1 Cent, 10 Cents and 25 Cents. The 25 Cents has sailing ship on it. We offer the denomination type set of 3 coins: 2 different 1 cent coins, 3 different 10 cent coins and 2 different 25 Cents. All coins are in Very Fine condition but they are struck in Zinc not one of the most attractive metals.

Greece 10 Lepta 1973 Unc_obv

Greece, 10 Lepta 1973 Unc

In the 1970s Greece became a Republic and they had terrible inflation. They started to strike their coins in aluminium. It didn’t work because even the value of aluminium was greater than their face value. About 30 years ago we are able to buy a quantity of these coins from a friend in Greece. The coins are all in Uncirculated condition and we haven’t seen any quantity of these coins since. I think they are underappreciated and know that they are scarcer than either the catalogue or collectors realise. Were we offer the 1973 10 Lepta in Unc. We sell nothing as an investment, but these coins are harder to find than most people realise. Get them while you can…
