THIRD EDITION oes AKI RU eS WM ae Kis cae - neo easel UNUSUAL, WORLD CO A STANDARD CATALOG OF WORLD COINS COMPANION LISTING AND PRICE GUIDE OF NOVEL NON-CIRCULATING COINS by Colin R. Bruce II Joan Melum Tom Michael Project Coodinator Market Analyst UNCIRCULATED VALUATIONS The Uncirculated valuations represented in this edition are for typical quality specimens; for some of the more popularly collected series, superior quality exam- ples may easily command 10% to 50% premiums, or even greater where particu: larly popular or rare types or dates are concerned, BULLION VALUE (BV) MARKET VALUATIONS Valuations for all platinum, gold or silver coins of the more common, basically bullion types, or those possessing only modest numismatic premiums, are pre- sented in this edition based on market levels of $390 per ounce for plantinum, §360 for gold, and $3.60 per ounce for siiver. Where the letters "BV" — Bullion Value — appear in 2 value column, that particular issue in the condition indicated generally trades at or near the bullion vaiue ofits precious metal content. Further information on using this catalog to evaluate platinum, gold or silver coins amid fluctuating precious metal market conditions is presented on page 8. The best histories may sometimes be those in which a little of the exag- geration of fictitious narrative is judiciously employed.—Something lost in accuracy, but much is gained in effect.—The fainter lines are neg- lected, but the great characteristic features are imprinted on the mind forever.— Macaulay.

FORWARD sented many more and it was a good time to round up all these “unusual world coins” and include some rascals also. ‘The purpose of this new catalog is to provide an easy to use reference to what I've referred to sometimes as the old back of the book listings that appeared in the Standard Catalog of World Coins many editions back. INTRODUCTION to over 2250 individual listings. The shortcom- ings of the first title previously mentioned were soon encountered, Again certain areas of extreme specialty which have already been removed from or not intended for inclusion in future editions of the Standard Catalog of World Coins have been added including most anything thought to be or auctioned off or sold as a coin whether or not it was a government authorized medallic issue or an absolute fantasy piece. Please note that counterfeits of regular circulating coinage have almost been totally ignored, unless they are encountered in various off metal strikes. Many new listings have been added while keeping any renumbering minimal. Please note that the ‘X’ prefix found throughout these list- ings is not meant to be derogatory in any way but to easily distinguish the source of the list- ing as being from Unusual World Coins.

Thus, the pieces of Nether- lands East Indies can be located by referring to the listings under I, or the Imperial issues of Russia by turning to R. Certain issues that are not related to any sovereign govern. ‘ment, rebel force, or political movement will be found listed under the country of the issuer's origin. Thus the “Aureus Magnus” Ducat series struck for Werner Gaul will be found listed under Germany - Republic while the commemorative medallie bullion pieces struck for various nurismatic con ventions and expositions by the New China Mint will be found listed under China - Peoples Republic, ‘The issues of each country are generally arranged by denomination from lowest to highest, except where arrangement by ruler, mint of issue, type or period makes a series easier to understand. NUMBERING SYSTEM Many catalog numbers cross-referenced in this volume are based on established references, As time progressed we found many of these established systems incomplete and inadequate and are now replaced with new Bruce numbers with appropriate croas-referencing. A few of the items listed in this catalog are cross- eferenced by numbers assigned by R.S. Yeoman (V2), or slight adaptations thereof, in his Modern World Coins. For the pre-Yeoman dated issues, the numbers assigned by William D. Craig (Cs) in his Coins of the World (1750- 1850 period), 3rd edition, have generally heen applied. Cer- tain crown sized items are cross-referenced to The Dollars of Africa, Asia and Oceania by John $. Davenport (Dav, #), ‘The majority of the items listed in this eatalog are cross referenced to The Standard Catalog of World Coins by Chester Krause and Clifford Mishler (KM #). Another popular cross-reference used was published in a series of articles about Unofficial Coins of the World by Richard D. Kenney (KY #) which appeared in The Numismatist between June 1962 and February 1964. Pieces issued under the Chinese sphere of influence are frequently assigned numbers from E. Kann’s (Kann #) Mlustrated Catalog of Chinese Coins. MINT AND PRIVY MARKS ‘The presence of distinctive, but. frequently inconspi cuously placed, mint marks indicates the mint of issue for ‘many of the coins listed in this catalog. An appropriate des- ignation in the date listings notes the presence, if any, of @ mint mark on a particular coin type by incorporating the letter or letters of the mint mark adjoining the date; ie., 1950D or 1927R. ‘The presence of mint and/or mintmaster’s privy marks on a coin in non-letter form is indicated by incorporating the mint letter in lower ease within parentheses adjoining the date; i.e., 1927 (a). The corresponding mark is illus: trated or identified in the introduetion of the country. A listing format by mints of Issue has been adopted for some countries — including France, Germany, Spain and ‘Mexico — to allow for a more logical arrangement. In these. instanees, the name of the mint and its mint mark letter or lotters is presented at the beginning of each series, Where listings incorporate mintmaster initials, they are «always presented in capital letters separated from the date; i.e. 1850 MF. The different mint mark and mintmaster let. ters found on the coins of any country, state or city of issue are always shown at the beginning of listings. MINTAGES Quantities minted of each date are indicated where that information is available; generally stated in millions, rounded off to the nearest 10,000 pieces. On quantities of a few thousand or less, actual mintages are generally indi- cated, a fact that can be determined by the presence of a comma, rather than a decimal point, in the stated figure, ‘The following mintage conversion formulas have been observed: 10,000,000 - 10.000 1,000 - 1,000 842 - 842 pes. (Pieces) 27-27 pes. ‘The abbreviation “Inc, Ab.” or “L.A.” means Included Above, while the abbreviation “Ine. Be.” or “IB.” means Included Below. A “*" listing beside a mintage figure indi cates the number given is an estimate. PHOTOGRAPHS ‘To assist the reader in coin identification, every effort has been made to present actual size photographs of every coinage type listed. Obverse and reverse are illustrated, except when a change in design is restricted to one side, and the coin has a diameter of 39mm or larger, in which case only the side, required for identification of the type is generally illustrated. All coins up to 60mm are illustrated actual-size; to the nearly 4mm up to 25mm, and to the nearest Imm thereafter. Coins larger than G0mm diameter are illustrated in reduced size, with the actual size noted thereunder, Where slight change in size is important to coin type identification, actual millimeter measurements are stated. MEDALLIC ISSUES Medallic issues are segregated following the regular issue istings. Grouped there are coin-type issues which can gen- erally be identified as commomoratives produced to the tablished coinage standards but without the usual indicator of denomination. These pieces may or may not feature designs adapted from the country's regular issue or commemorative coinage, and may or may not have been issued in conjunction with related coinage issues. MEDALLIC BULLION ISSUES A relatively new field which has taken off from the mod em bullion related issues of some nations. ‘These items are ‘usually struck by private contract by some of the world’s leading mints. Some pieces have only an indication of weight and fineness while others have also employed an obsolete or non-legal tender denomination. Struck usually in proof condition in various weights commemorating vari- ‘ous world events they lack the normal uncirculated bullion ‘versions. METALS At the beginning of each date listing, the metallic compo- ‘sition of each coin denomination is listed, and thereafter, ‘whenever a change in metal occurs, The traditional coinage metals and their symbolic chemical abbreviations used in this catalog are: Platinum — (PT) Copper — (Cu) Gold — (Au) ass — Silver — (Ag) Copper-nickel— (CN) Billon — Lead — (Pb) Nickel — (Ni) Steel — Zine — (Zn) ‘Tin — (Sn) Bronze— (Ae) Aluminum — (Al) __Duting the 18th and 19th Centuries, most of the world’s were struck of copper or bronze, silver and gold, Com- in the early years of the 20th Century, however, fouls new coinage metals, primarily non-precious alloys, were introduced.

Cascade, Colorado Spring, CO 80903. Their reasonably-priced certification tests are widely accepted by collectors and dealers alike. COUNTERMARKS/ COUNTERSTAMPS ‘There is some confusion among collectors over the terms “countermark” and “counterstamp” when applied to a coin bearing an additional mark or change of design and/or denomination. ‘To clarify, a countermark might be considered similar to the “hall mari” applied to a piece of silverware, by which a silversmith assured the quality of the piece. In the same way, a countermark assures the quality of the coin on which it is placed, as, for example, when the royal crown of England was cotntermarked (punched into) on segmented Spanish reales, allowing them to circulate in commerce in the British West Indies. An additional countermark indi- cating the new denomination may also be encountered on these coins. Countermarks are generally applied singularly and in most cases indiscriminately on either side of the “host” Counterstamped coins are more extensively altered. The counterstamping is done with a set of dies, rather than a hand punch. The coin being counterstamped is placed between the new dies and struck as if it were a blank plan- chet as found with the Manila 8 reales issue of the Philip pines. A more unusual application where the counterstamp lies were smaller than the host coin is in the revalidated 50 1 and 1 colon of Costa Rica issued in 1923. WEIGHTS AND FINENESS TROY WEIGHT STANDARDS 24 Grains - 1 Pennyweight 480 Grains ~ 1 Ounce 31.103 Grains - 1 Ounce UNIFORM WEIGHTS 1Grain = 0.0648 Grams 1Gram ~ 15.432 Grains AVOIRDUPOIS STANDARDS 27.11/82 Grains ~ 1 Dram 43714 Grains - 1 Ounce 28.350 Grams - 1 Ounce Coin weights are indicated in grams (abbreviated “g” along with fineness where the information is of value in dif- ferentiating between types. These weights are based on 31.103 grams per troy (scientific) ounce, as opposed to the avoirdupois (commercial) standard of 28.35 grams. Actual coin weights are generally shown in hundredths or thou- sandths of a gram; ie. .500 SILVER, 2.92. As the silver and gold bullion markets have advanced and declined sharply in recent years, the fineness and total fine precious metal content of coins has become especially significant where bullion coins — issues which trade on the basis of their intrinsic metallie content rather than numis- matic value — are concerned. In many instances, such isoues have become worth more in bullion form than their nominal collector values or denominations indicate. WEIGHTS AND FINENESS 7 VALUATIONS g Establishing the weight of a coin can also be valuable for determining its denomination. Actual weight is also neces- sary to ascertain the specific gravity of the coin’s metallic content, an important factor in determining authenticity. PRECIOUS METAL WEIGHTS Listings of weight, fineness and actual silver (ASW), gold (AGW) or platinum (APW) content of most machin struck silver, gold and platinum coins are provided in this edition. These designations will be found incorporated in the listings immediately beneath illustrations or in eon- Junetion with type changes wherever these factors could be termined. ‘The ASW, AGW and APW figures were determined by multiplying the gross weight of a given coin by its known or tested fineness and converting the resulting gram or grain weight to troy ounces, rounded to the nearest ten-thou- sandth of an ounce. A silver coin with a 24.25 gram weight and .876 fineness, for example, would have a fine weight of approximately 21.2188 grains, or a.6822 ASW, a factor that can be used to accurately determine the intrinsie value for multiple examples. ‘The ASW, AGW or APW figure can be multiplied by the spot price of each precious metal to determine the current intrinsic value of any coin accompanied by these designa- tions. SETS Listings in this catalog for specimen, proof and mint sets are for official, government-produced sets. In many istances privately packaged sets also exist. int Sets/Fleur de Coin Sets: Specially prepared by worldwide mints to provide banks, collectors and govern- ment dignitaries with examples of current coinage. Usually subjected to rigorous inspection to insure that top qual specimens of selected business strikes are provided. ‘The ‘most popular mint set is that given out by the monarch of Great Britain each year on Maundy ‘Thursday. 'T contains four special coins in denominations of 1, 2,3. and 4 pence, struck in silver and contained in alittle pouch. They hhave been given away in a special ceremony for the poor for more than to centuries. ‘The Paris Mint introduced polyvinyl plastic eases packed within a cardboard box for homeland and colonial Fleur de Coin sets of the 1960s. British colonial sets were issued in velvet-lined metal cases similar to those used for proof sets. For its client nations, the Franklin Mint intro: duced a sealed composition of cardboard and specially molded hard clear plastie protective container inserted in a soft plastic wallet. Recent discovery that soft polyvinyl packaging has proved hazardous to coins has restilted in a change t0 the use of hard, inert plastics for virtually all mint sets. Some of the highest-quality mint sets ever produced were those struck by the Franklin Mint during 1972-74. In many cases matte finish dies were used to strike a polished proof planchet. Later on, from 1975, sets contained highly polished, glassy-looking eoins similar to those struck by the Bombay Mint for collectors over the last 12 years Specimen Sets: Forerunners of today’s proof sets. In most cases the coins were specially struck, perhaps even double struck, to produce a very soft or matie finish on the effigies and fields, along with high, sharp “wire” rims. The finish is rather dull to the naked eye. The original purpose of these sets was to provide VIPs, ‘monarchs and mintmasters around the world with samples of the highest quality workmanship of a particular mint. ‘hese were usually housed in elaborate velet-lined leather and metal cases. Proof-like Sets: A relative late-comer to the field of ‘numismaties. During the mid 1950s the Royal Canadian Mint furnished the hobby with specially selected early business strike coins that exhibited some qualities similar to proof coinage. However, the “proof-like” fields are gen- erally flawed and the edges are rounded. These pieces are not double struck. These are commonly encountered in cardboard holders, later in soft plastie or pliofilm packag- ing. Of tate, the Royal Canadian Mint packages such sets in rigid plastic cases. Many worldwide officially-issued proof sets would in reality fall into this category upon careful examination of the quality of the coins’ finish ‘Another term encountered in this category is “Special- select,” used to describe the crowns of the Union of South Africa and 100-schilling coins produced for collectors in the late 1970s by the Austrian Mint. Proof Sets: This is undoubtedly among the most mis- used terms in the hobby, not only by collectors and dealers, but also by many of the world mints. A true proof set must be at least double-struck on spe- cially prepared polished planchets and struck using dies (often themselves polished) of the highest quali Modern-day proof quality consists of frosted effigies sur- rounded by absolute mirror-like fields. Listings for proof sots in this catalog are for officially: issued proof sets so designated by the issuing authority, and may or may not possess what are considered modern proof quality standards. tis necessary for collectors to acquire the knowledge to allow them to differentiate true proof sets from would-be proof sets and proof-like sets which may be encountered. VALUATIONS ‘Values quoted in this catalog represent the current mar- ket and are compiled from recommendations provided and verified through various source documents and specialized consultants. It should be stressed, however, that this book is intended to serve only as for ating coins; actual market conditions are constantly changing and additional influences, such as particularly strong local demand for certain coin series, fluctuation of international exchange rates and worldwide collecting patterns must also be considered. Publication of this catalog is not intended as a solicitation by the publisher, editors or contributors to buy or sell the listed coins at the prices indicated. All valuations are stated in U.S. dollars, based on careful ‘assessment of the varied international money market. Val- uations for coins priced below $1,000.00 are generally stated in full amounts — ie, 37.50 or 950.00 — while valu ations at or above that figure are rounded off in even dol- lars — ic., $1250.00 is expressed as 1250. A comma is added to indicate tens of thousands of dollars in value. For the convenience of overseas collectors and for U.S. collectors doing business with overseas dealers, the base exchange rate for the national eurrencies of approximately 180 countries are presented in the foreign exchange table. It should be noted that when particularly select, uncireulated or proof-like examples of uncireu- lated coins become available, they can be expected to command proportionately high pre ums, Such examples in reference to choice Germanic ‘Thalers are referred to as “erst schlage” or first strikes.
