Sweden, World War II & Later Coin Set

In 1942, during World War II Sweden change the metal content of its smallest coins. That is the 1, 2 and 5 Ore were now made in steel? During the War you used whatever metal was most readily available and of the least use elsewhere. They liked this new coinage so well that they carried on making them until 1950. So some of the coins will be struck during the War and some shortly afterwards. We think it is a most interesting set and that they carried on using them after the War. The set of three coins are in Very Fine condition and now at least 70 years old.

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.

Belgium, Set of Six Francs

Although Belgium was created in 1830, it was not until 1886 that coinage started carrying text in Flemish. It would take even longer till coins were routinely minted with both languages. We can offer you a series of six Belgian 1 franc coins spanning the period between 1950 and 2001 when the franc was replaced by the euro. The first 2 have the head of Ceres on the reverse and circulated between 1950 and 1988, followed by 2 with the image of King Baudouin (1989-1993) and then his brother King Albert II (1994-2001). There are two of each coin type showing the country name and denomination in French (Belgique/franc) and Dutch (België/frank).
