Way up high in the middle of the mountains that include Mount Everest, the small but exotic country of the Kingdom of Bhutan is situated. Intertwined dragons make up its coat of arms and the country is more interested in being happy than in anything else. How it got involved in the Royal Mint’s programme for the 50th Anniversary of the United Nations we will never know, but they sure did. On one side there is a portrait of the late leader of the United Nations, Dag Hammarskjold. The reverse has those intertwined dragons. This is full crownsized, in Brilliant Uncirculated condition and from a country that doesn’t issue a lot of coins, then again this crown was issued in 1995. We think that we are perhaps the only coin firm that has them for sale. We also think you will like our prices, after all, we did buy them some time ago…
This cupronickel One Peso was issued by Cuba in 1985 as part of the United Nations FAO programme. The mintage is just 5,000 and the current Krause catalogue price is $10.00(£6.45) which we think is too low for such a low mintage. You have a modern rendition of a rainforest on one side and the arms of Cuba on the other side. The coin is in Uncirculated condition and now some 33 years old. We think this coin is being sold too cheaply, but in the spirit of giving you a bargain, here we are!
In 1995 the Royal Mint issued a series of crowns for the 50th anniversary of the United Nations. Countries from as far afield as Bhutan and Barbados joined the programme. Years ago we bought out all the crowns that remained. Due to our move to our New Customer Service Department, we found one that we knew we had but was always missing, the scarce one, the full-sized Cuban United Nations Crown. This full crownsized 1 Peso has 5 children and a dove of peace on one side and the arms of Cuba on the other side. We don’t know if these crowns were struck by the Royal Mint or the Cuban Mint, we do know that many collectors are looking for it.
This attractive and rather scarce crown was issued in 1995 for the 50th anniversary of the United Nations. It was struck by the Royal Mint as part of their series, unfortunately it was not a success and not all that many of them were issued. The coin on offer also has the Official full colour bubble pack with it giving you information about the coin and the country. Malawi, as with many of the African countries, do not issue all that many crowns. This coin is struck in cupronickel and is in Uncirculated condition. It is inexpensive so get them while you can…
The Maldives, a nation of many islands, joined the Royal Mint’s series of crownsized coins to honour the 50th Anniversary of the United Nations in 1996. The Maldives are in jeopardy of disappearing due to the rising oceans, one day they might just not exist. You have the United Nations building in New York with the 50th Anniversary emblem on one side and the arms of the Maldives on the other side. Unfortunately this Royal Mint series really didn’t take off, so today these crownsized Rufiyaa coins are difficult to find. All our coins are in Brilliant Uncirculated condition and are now some 22 years old.
In 1995 to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the United Nations, the Royal Mint issued a series of crown sized coins. The event did not hit the peak the Royal Mint wanted, especially as they spent most of their time trying to promote the Silver issues. So that the cupronickel issues have turned out to be the scarcest of the issue. One of these was from Seychelles. We find that we are running short and this could be your last time on this one. The crown is Uncirculated and as far as I know, we have the last group of these coins available. Good value and now 23 years old.
This 20 Ghirsh coin was issued in 1985 as part of the United Nations’ FAO or Food for All organization. You have the eagle the symbol of Sudan on one side and the FAO design on the other side. Now some 35 years old it is not an easy coin to get, but then again most coins from Sudan are difficult. This coin is in Uncirculated condition and is priced to tempt and delight you at only £2.95. A United Nations coin from Sudan, 27 years old and in Uncirculated condition for just £2.95
