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.

Netherlands, Queen Beatrix  5 Coin Set

Netherlands, Queen Beatrix 5 Coin Set

The Netherlands issued their own coinage, but now only use Euro coins; the old coins are, in fact, no longer valid. But since it looks like the Euro and the European Union might be in trouble and hopefully disband, their old coins might just become very collectable. One of our suppliers has put together type sets of the old, pre-Euro coins that each country used to use. It is getting harder and harder to find the coins to make up these sets, so supplies are limited. All coins are circulated, which means that they were actually used as money. You get the 5 Gulden, 1 Gulden, 25c 10c and 5c coins.
