INTERESTING MODERN WORLD COINS

INEXPENSIVE COIN OF ANDORRA

Andorra 1 Centim 1999 FAO coin, KM171The Principality of Andorra is a tiny nation on the border of France and Spain that is nominally ruled by the Bishop of Urgell and the President of France.  It was originally granted a charter by Charlemagne.  In 988 Andorra was given to the Bishop of Urgell.  In 1095, in exchange for military protection, the Bishop signed a treaty with the Lord of Caboet, making them both co-sovereigns of Andorra.  Eventually that part of the title passed to President of France. In 1999 Andorra issued this 22mm aluminum 1 Centim coin as part of the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization’s coin program. One side depicts the winged figure of Ceres delivering wheat.  The other side has the denomination and the titles of the Bishop of Urgell.

Malawi Chinese Zodiac coin setCommon Obverse to Malawi Zodiac coins

This twelve coin set from Malawi pictures the twelve animals of the Asian Zodiac. Each of the twelve coins bears a different multi-color animal, done in a traditional, colorful Asian cartoon style against a gold-colored background. The obverse of the coins bears a portrait of Queen Elizabeth (as Malawi is a member of the Commonwealth) and the Malawi arms. The coins have the face value of 5 Kwacha each and are dated 2005. They are 40mm in diameter and are struck in silver-plated copper-nickel with a Prooflike finish. According to the Standard Catalog of World Coins only 835 of the sets were struck and they catalog $12.50 per coin or $150 per set.
