Until it converted to the Euro in 2002, the tiny Republic of San Marino would issue two well-designed bi-metallic coins each year: a 500 Lire and a 1000 Lire.  New designs would be used each year, making the coins popular with collectors.  We offer two sets of these attractive coins.  The set 1000 Lire coins feature San Marino’s last three 1000 Lire coins. The 2001 issue depicts a circle of doves on the reverse and the famous three towers of San Marino on the obverse.  The 1999 and 2000 dated 1000 Lire coins both depict “the Child of the Universe” on the obverse. The “Child of the Universe” is a bust with a map of the earth superimposed on its head. The child is holding a flame and is flanked by the moon, stars and planets. The 2000 issue has a Swallow flying over the earth on the reverse.    The 1999 issue has an exploration theme featuring a compass rose and symbols for the wind and sun.  The set of seven 500 Lire coins includes the 1990, 1992, 1993, 1994, 1996, 1998 and 1999 issues.  The 1990 issue commemorates the history of San Marino, depicting the Three Towers on one side and birds and a postage stamp on the other.  The 1992 honors Columbus. It shows his ship being blown by the winds on one side and the 3 Towers on the other.   The 1993 issue shows a sprout coming out of a broken tree stump, signifying new beginnings.   The 3 Towers are on the obverse.  The 1994 issue pictures St. Marin on both sides of the coin. He was a Christian stone cutter who founded San Marino in 301AD in order to escape Roman persecution.  The 1996 issue honors German philosopher G.W.F. Hegel, the 1998 issue honors Chemistry and the 1999 issue pictures the Moon, Saturn and planets.  All three have the “Child of the Universe” on the obverse.

SCARCE BI-METALLIC COINS FROM THE AFRICA    Wholesale prices available to dealers

2005 bimetal coins of Benin, Cameroons, Chad, Gabon and Niger
Benin, Cameroon, Chad, Gabon, and Niger recently released a series of low-mintage bimetallic coins.  Because the nations are members of the Central African Monetary Union or the West African Monetary Union, they issue few coins of their own.  Like the Euro coins, they have a common reverse.  The reverse features an elephant head superimposed on a map of Africa.  The Benin bi-metallic 6000 Francs of 2005 commemorates the 2008 Olympic games and shows figures participating in various Olympic sports. The bi-metallic Cameroon 4500 Franc commemorates the Pope Benedict XVI and has a horrible picture of the new Pope.  It has a mintage of 2005 pieces.  The Chad 2005 bi-metallic 4500 Francs features a lamb, cotton, Acacia flowers and a barrel of oil. The Gabon 2005 bi-metallic 4500 Francs commemorates the nations oil riches by featuring a drop of oil.  Due to corruption and mismanagement the oil wealth has virtually destroyed the nation's economy and making its capital Libreville one of the most expensive cities in the world.  The Niger 2005 bimetallic 6000 Francs has a mintage of only 1200 pieces.  Its theme is "Stop Malaria" and features a large mosquito.    All five coins are quite rare.  The 4500 Franc coins have a mintage of only 2005 pieces each, while the 6000 Franc coins have a mintage just 1200 pieces.  Just a few individuals control the entire mintage of the coins,  making them hard for collectors to obtain.  All five coins are Uncirculated.
