Availability: In stock
SKU: FLK9351

We have managed to buy the last of the United Nations Food For All sheet of coins. These were issued in the 1980’s and 1990’s to help raise money for famine relief. What many collectors don’t realise is that most of these coins never made it back to their own countries. Therefore there are collectors at home, looking for them.
There are a total of 12 Uncirculated coins on the sheet and two that we think are very interesting are the Guernsey 1p & 2p coins of 1985. They have a crab and a cow on them and they only struck 60,000 of each, so these must be a key date of the series.
You get Uncirculated coins from Maldives, Uruguay, Brazil, Guernsey, Nepal, San Marino, Turkey and the Vatican. The Turkish coin has a face value of 50,000 Lira. None of these coins are easy to find and at our price for the whole sheet of 12 Uncirculated coins, we think it is a bit of a bargain. The first time we had them, they sold out very quickly, so we advise acting with speed on this one as supplies are limited.

St. Thomas & Prince Scarce Crown

In 1985St. Thomas & Prince issued a cupro-nickel crown or 100 Dobras to honour their 10th anniversary of Independence. It is a small and fascinating island, however, getting coins or banknotes from there is almost impossible. Two banknote dealers who went there were put in jail accused of money laundering. So this Crown is even more interesting and important. I think it is the first crown we have had from St. Thomas & Prince. You have an outline picture of the island on one side and the coat of arms on the reverse with two birds holding it up. A most unusual and difficult crown to find, in fact, most of this country's coins are difficult to obtain...

Solomon Islands Elizabeth II Collection

The Solomon Islands is a group of South Pacific islands, but their coins still carry the Queen’s portrait. The coins are dated between 1996-2012 and many of the coins are no longer available due to the high cost of minting them. You get 1, 2, 5, 10, 20 and 50 Cents plus the 1 & 2 Dollars. Each coin has the Queen’s portrait and each coin is in Brilliant Uncirculated condition. Not an easy place to get coins from, in fact not an easy place to get to in any case. A friend went there and therefore we are able to offer you this fantastic set of 8 different Brilliant Uncirculated coins. But we don’t have all that many, so if you want one, please get in quickly…

Tristan da Cunha, Christopher Columbus

Columbus discovered more than just America, he discovered the Caribbean Islands as well. This beautiful diamond-shaped Crown from Tristan da Cunha does him great justice. Christopher with wide tricorn hat, sailing ship to his right and ships wheel above is on one side and H.M. Queen Elizabeth II is on the other side. Each coin is in Proof condition and is heavily silver plated to gleam. Then it is put into a diamond shaped plastic display case to help preserve it. Now you can own a most unusual and interesting coin of that great explorer Christopher Columbus for a very competitive price: we doubt that any would be issued today at such a reasonable price.
