Romania, Ice Hockey Copper Piedfort

Recently we have been getting a number of enquirers from Romania and several other former Eastern European countries for the Romanian pattern Crowns that we had so many of. Strange, when we went to check our inventory we discovered that the large group we had was almost sold out. After all they are very low mintage, they are Olympic commemoratives and they are priced cheaply. We did find one piece that we had in a smallish quantity and that we can offer to you at a reasonable price. It is Pattern Crown struck for the Ice Hockey event held in Nagano, Japan. It was struck in copper proof, double thickness or Piedfort and with a mintage of just 125 pieces. Get them before the Romanian dealers buy them all up.

Picture of Romania, Ice Dance Copper

Romania, Ice Dance Copper

This is a RARE Piedfort Pattern made by the Romania Mint for the Winter Olympics held in Nagano Japan in 1998. It depicts a couple Ice Dancing on one side and the arms of Romania on the other side. This is a Piedfort, that means that it is double the normal thickness. So on a crown that is quite a huge piece. The total mintage is just 125, quite a Rare piece and no doubt very collectable in Japan. It was issued in 1989 and is a very unusual coin, in that the denomination is on the edge, so as not to spoil the design.

Trans-Dniester Republic, set of 4 coins

The autonomous region called the Trans-Dniester Republic issued a most unusual set of coins in 2014. They are made of a composite material, are semi-transparant and have a textured surface. This was originally part of the Russian Federation but is now ‘independent’. They are a plastic type material but with a hardness that produces a stone like sound when rubbed. They were issued by the Trans-Dniester 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 the rounded corners. They have the 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.
