Vanuatu (New Hebrides), 100 Francs

The exotic South Pacific Island Nation of the New Hebrides is now called Vanuatu. It got its independence from the Anglo-French commission that ran it in 1980. Before then, only one crown was ever issued and that was the 100 Francs of 1966. It is struck in 835 fine Silver and the coins on offer are in Uncirculated condition. If you are collecting a crown of each country, then you must have this one for your collection. It has the head of French Liberty on one side and a native carved sceptre on the other side. A large silver crown that is very difficult to get, in fact we have only 35 pieces and that is after a year of looking for them.

St. Thomas & Prince, Two Scarce Coins Uncirculated

Why are these two coins scarce? Because they no longer make small coins for circulation, they use banknotes. These two coins were issued in 1971 and the English version of their name is Saint Thomas & Prince Islands. Both the 10 Centavos and the 20 Centavos are one year only type coins. And now 48 years old. They are in Brilliant Uncirculated condition and coins that you just don’t see any more. Scarce coins from a country that no longer makes small coins. If you don’t have them then this is your chance to get two scarce coins.

TransDniester Republic, set of 4 coins

The autonomous region called the TransDniester Republic issued a most unusual set of coins in 2014. They are made of composite material, are semi-transparent, and have a textured surface. This territory was part of the Soviet Union, and later became an unrecognised Moldovan breakaway state, that is still recognised internationally as being part of Moldova. These coins are a plastic-type material but with a hardness that produces a stone-like sound when rubbed. They were issued by the 'TransDniester Republic Bank' and there are 4 denominations. 1 Rouble circular, 3 Roubles square with rounded corners, 5 Roubles pentagon-shaped with rounded corners, and 10 Roubles hexagonal with rounded corners. They have rounded corners for ease of use and for ease of machine readability at high speeds. These were an experiment and who knows if they will continue to issue them. But we thought that they were very interesting and rather well priced so we obtained 100 sets of them. Supplies are limited.

Picture of Bahamas, Prince Charles $10.00

Bahamas, Prince Charles $10.00

This large silver $10.00 was issued by the Bahamas in 1978 for the 5th Anniversary of their Independence. But rather than put the Queen on the coin, they put Prince Charles. It is in Proof condition, but they have toned a bit over the past 41 years, as silver tends to do. It weighs 45.36 grams of 500 fine Silver, which works out to about 3/4 of an ounce of pure Silver. As far as we can remember, this is the first coin to portray Prince Charles, and as he is going to be our next King, it might be a good way to start a collection of his coins.
