In 1978 the Commonwealth Games were held in Edmonton Alberta. Western Samoa issued a commemorative crown-sized $1. On one side you have three runners and on the other side are the arms of Western Samoa. Each Uncirculated $1 or crownsized coin comes in a specially imprinted case.
It has been some time since we were last able to offer a crown from this rather exotic South Pacific country. They are rather interesting and how many collectors have a crown from Western Samoa, now known as Samoa.

Nagorno-Karabakh, Set of 7 Coins. Uncirculated.

Nagorno-Karabakh Set of 7 Coins. Uncirculated. Nagorno-Karabakh can certainly be considered a most unusual country. Although it declared its independence in 1991, the United Nations still considers it part of Azerbaijan. The majority of the residents are of Armenian descent. The country borders Armenia, Iran, and Azerbaijan but considers itself an independent nation. This set of 7 coins was issued in 2004 and as far as we know it is the only set of coins from this country. There are 3 aluminum 1 Drams, a Saint, 2 cats, and a bird with a very long tail. There are also 2 of the 50 Luma, one with a prancing horse and one with a gazelle. There are 2 of the 5 Drams one with an ancient monument and the other with an ornate church. All the coins are Brilliant Uncirculated condition and I don’t know anywhere else that has this set for sale at this time.
