Colombia Leper 2 Centavos_obv

Colombia Leper 2 Centavos

Leper colony coinage in Colombia circulated only in the country’s three government backed quarantine stations over fears that using regular coins could spread the infection to others outside. These 2 centavo coins, which we can offer in Very Fine condition, were minted in 1921. On the obverse they have a stylised cross with the word “LAZARETO” (the Spanish word for a quarantine station), while the obverse has the date and the denomination within a wreath. These special stations were closed in the 1950s and the inmates were allowed to exchange them for regular coinage at any bank.

Mauritania 6 Coin Mint Set 1973-2014

Mauritania is in the North of Africa between Morocco and Mali. It only became Independent from France in 1960 and was the last country in the world to abolish slavery (1981). Even today, the Home Office suggest that unless you have to, it is better not to visit Mauritania. We have just had in a set of coins and boy are they difficult to get! There are six different coins, five of them Brilliant Uncirculated and one Extremely Fine. You get the 1/5th, 1, 5, 10, 20 and 50 Ouguiya. They are dated 1973-2014 and are a very difficult set to put together and perhaps smuggle out of their country. It is a fantastic set especially if you are collecting a set from each country. Considering the dangerous involved in acquiring these coins, hence we were only allowed to buy 100 sets.
