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.

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.

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.
