Poland, 7 Coin Set

With the fall of Communism in Poland in 1989 and the hyperinflation that set in during 1990, the country’s currency had to be re-issued. At the time inflation soared to 567% (we think we have it bad!!) and the zloty fell to 16,862 to our UK pound. Now we can offer a set of 7 of these coins that were issued for one year only. The lower denominations (1, 2 and 5 zloty) are made of aluminium, while the 10 zloty comes in brass and the 50, 20 and 100 are copper-nickel.

Vatican, 2 Lire (Holy Year) 1958 Brilliant Unc

Citta del Vaticano, or Vatican City, issued its own coins up until 2002 when it adopted the Euro. These Aluminium 2 Lire coins (KM.50) were issued in the name of Pope Pius XII in 1958 and were the last of their type issued since he died in October 1958. The coins are low mintage with only 30,000 being struck. They have the crowned shield on the obverse and on the reverse the figure of Fortitude standing with a lion at his feet. Even better, they come in Brilliant Uncirculated condition and are now nearly 65 years old and rather difficult to find.
