FIRST SILVER TRAM OF MEDIEVAL ARMENIA

Armenia, silver Tram of Levon I, 1198-1219About 1198 Levon I (also called Leo II, Leon II and Levon the Magnificant) was crowned as the first king of Cilcian Armenia.  He had ruled the territory as Lord of Armenia since 1187, after his brother was captured by Bohemond III of Antioch and retired to a monastery. As king he had the privilege of issuing the first Armenian coins since ancient times.  He established a powerful Christian kingdom and was a strong supporter of the Third Crusade. He had numerous intrigues and conflicts with Bohemond III of Antioch, at one point taking him and his family prisoner after inviting them to castle. He was later involved in the War of the Antiochene Succession after Bohemond's death.  He joined Richard the Lion Heart in the conquest of Cyprus and was actively involved in the numerous political plots and intrigues of the Crusader kingdoms and neighboring kingdoms.  These crude silver Trams are approximately 22mm in diameter.  One side pictures picture King Levon seated upon his throne.  The reverse shows a lion and leopard with a cross.  It is an historic Armenian coin with a close connection to the Crusades.

2014 CRIMEA COIN SET

Crimean coin set: 5, 10, 25 and 100 Rubles. Includes bi-metallicsback of Crimean 2014 coins
The recent conflict between Ukraine and Russia over control of Crimea goes back many years.  In 1783 Catherine the Great made Crimea part of the Russian Empire.  During the Russian civil war the region declared independence and passed between Bolshevik and White Government forces several times, accompanied by a massive slaughter of civilians.  In 1921 it was made an autonomous republic within Russia.  Greeks, Armenians and Bulgarians living in Crimea were forced to leave.   During World War II the area came under German control and the sizeable Jewish population was annihilated.  After the Soviets regained control the entire population of Crimean Tatars, who had at one time made up a majority of the region, were forcibly deported.  Russian families were settled in Crimea to replace them.  In 1954 Crimea was transferred from Russia to Ukraine.  At the time it made little difference, since both were part of the Soviet Union.   After the breakup of the Soviet Union in 1991 Crimea became part of Ukraine.  Russia found its Black Sea fleet and other military installations now located in independent Ukraine rather on its own soil.  A majority of the population of Crimea is Russian, as most other ethnic groups had been “cleansed” from the area.   In February 2014 pro-Russian forces, supported by Moscow, took control over Crimea. A quickly called referendum was held on March 16, with a vast majority voting to join Russia.  On March 17 the newly created Crimean parliament declared independence from Ukraine, and on the following day, Crimea officially became part of Russia.  The transfer has not been widely recognized.   This unofficial four coin set of Crimea includes the 5, 10, 25 and 100 Rubles.  The 25 and 100 Rubles are bi-metallic.  The designs of the 5 and 25 Rubles feature voting, while the 10 and 100 Rubles depict a fist.  The reverse of the all the coins feature the Arms of Crimea.

LATVIAN LOTTERY TICKETS

When we buy collections and dealers stock, we sometimes end up with some strange material. Somehow we ended up with hundreds of used (and I assume losing) lottery tickets from Latvia, dating from the late 1950's and early 1990's. At this time Latvia was under control of the USSR. What I cannot understand is why a communist country in which everyone is supposed to be equal would have a lottery, which promotes inequality by producing a few rich winners at the expense of many losers. Anyway, the tickets are fun, colorful, and make both an interesting and inexpensive collection and an unusual gift for any avid lottery player.  Evert lot is different, though there will be duplicates between lots.

Latvia 8 coin Euro set: 1 Eurocent - 2 EuroOn January 1, 2014 Latvia became the 18th Euro member to issue coins.  The 8 coin set dated 2014 includes the 1, 2, 5, 10, 20, 50 Euro cent and the bi-metallic 1 and 2 Euro coins.  The obverse designs were all based on previous Latvia coins.  The bi-metallic 1 and 2 Euros featured Milda, the Latvian maiden who appeared on the silver 5 Lati issued from 1929 to 1932. She became a symbol of Latvian independence during the Soviet occupation of Latvia.  The edge of the 2 Euro has the inscription  "DIEVS SVĒTĪ LATVIJU" (God bless Latvia), which appeared on the edge of the silver 5 Lati.  The brass 10, 20 and 50 Eurocent feature the Greater Latvian coat-of-arms, which was used on the silver 1 and 2 Lati issued in the 1920's as well as the 1 and 2 Lati coins issued from 1991 to 2013.  The copper-plated steel 1, 2 and 5 Eurocents depict the Lesser Latvian coat-of-arms which was used on the minor coins of Latvia after it gained independence from the Soviet Union in 1991.  The reverses all utilize the standard Euro designs featuring maps of Europe.

EARLY DATED SILVER COIN OF POLAND-LITHUANIA

Poland - Lithuania silver 1/2 Grossus (Groschen) of Sigismund II AugustusUntil the 1600's most nations did not put dates on coins. These silver 1/2 Grossus (Groschen) coins of Sigismund II Augustus from the 1500's are some of the earliest affordable coins bearing an AD date.  Sigismund was both the King of Poland and Grand Duke of Lithuania.  In 1569 he formally united the two countries with the Treaty of Lublin to form the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth.  His coins reflect this dual nationality.  One side features his titles as Grand Duke of Lithuania, and Vytas, the White Knight, which is the national symbol of Lithuania.  Below Vytas is the date.  The other side features the Polish Eagle and his titles as King of Poland.  The 19mm silver coins date from 1547 to 1572.  In 1572 Sigsmund died childless, despite having three wives (two of which were first cousins) and carrying on affairs with "two of the most beautiful of his countrywomen".  He was the last of the powerful Jagiellonian dynasty controlled much of central Europe for almost 200 years.

In 2012 Lithuania released four circulating commemorative coins honoring four of their resort towns: Birstonas, Druskininkai, Neringa and Palanga.  Each coin depicts the town’s arms on one side and features Vytas, the white knight, who is Lithuania’s national emblem.  Birstonas is a town of about 3000 people that is noted for its mineral water. Druskininkai is a spa town in the southern part of the country.  While Lithuania was part of the Soviet Union it would attract some 400,000 visitors a year from the Soviet Union.  With the collapse of the Soviet Union it has faced difficult economic times due to the lack of Soviet tourists.  Neringa is a municipality on the Baltic Sea separated from the rest of Lithuania by the Curonian Lagoon.  It is accessible from Lithuania only by ferry.  Though it has a population of less than 3000, it attracts hundreds of thousands of tourists every summer.   Palanga is a popular seaside resort town on the Baltic Sea with a population of about 18,000.    Lithuania hoped the coins will boost tourism in the towns by spreading knowledge of the resorts around the world.  I must admit, until now, I did not know of any resorts in Lithuania.   The bi-metallic coins are 25mm in diameter and have a mintage of 100,000 each.

A bronze token picturing wheat stalks was good for 1 Kilo of bread.  Two tokens were issued for Gasoline (petrol), a bronze token that was good for 10 Liters of gasoline, and a copper-nickel token that was good for 20 Liters of gasoline.  Both had exactly the same design featuring an oil well and were the same size.  The 10 Liters token was soon withdrawn as criminals would nickel-plate it and pass it off as a 20 Liter token. This caused the the government to quickly withdraw the 10 Litres token.

Ukraine 200000 Karbovantsiv 1995 Bohdan Khmeinytsky Monument, KM9Though Ukraine declared independence from the Soviet Union in 1991, it did not issue its first commemorative coins until 1995.  The first was the 1995 200,000 Karbovantsiv commemorating the 400th anniversary of the birth of Bohdan Khmeinytsky.  In 1648, after his family’s estate was seized by a corrupt local official, Bohdan Khmeinytsky led a successful revolt against the Polish-Lithuanian Kingdom that controlled Ukraine.  He created and led the first independent Ukrainian Cossack state. In 1654, faced with continued military pressure from the Polish-Lithuanians and the Crimean Tatars, he formed a "union" with Russia.  There seemed to be considerable disagreement of what the union entailed. Russia used the "union" to eventually absorb and abolish the Ukraine state.  One side of the 33mm copper-nickel coin features the Bohdan Khmeinytsky monument in Kiev and Khmeinytsky’s birth and death dates.
