Rare patterns in sale Two major numismatic rarities will be offered by Dix Noonan Webb in the firm s Feb. 11 London auction. Top billing goes to a newly discovered Australian George V 1921 pattern or specimen shilling with a fivepointed star above the date, one of just six minted. It has spent the last few decades unrecognized in a private collection. The coin owes its existence to World War I and the subsequent world-wide economic upheaval. Post-war the price of gold and silver rose sharply. The upshot saw the silver content of many coins exceed their face values.

NGC slabs 8 reales Numismatic Guaranty Corporation announced that an NGC XF-45 Mexico (1538)R 8 Reales of Spanish co-regents Charles and Joanna was recently sold for a record price of $587,500. Struck in Mexico City in 1538, it is one of only three known survivors of the first mintage of the 8 reales denomination in the Americas. The 8 reales was the precursor to the modern silver dollar and the 1538 pieces are often called the first silver dollars of the New World. Although a small number of 8 reales were reported to have been minted in 1538, no examples were known to exist until the discovery in the 1990s of the Golden Fleece shipwreck, the nickname given to a Spanish ship that sank in the 1550s. The three surviving examples of the (1538)R 8 reales were recovered from this shipwreck and all were subsequently graded by NGC.

6 World Coin Views Call buyers with American dollars By David C. Harper However, with all of the uncertainty in the financial markets and a question mark about economic growth in the People s Republic, it is logical to assume that no additional waves of purchases will push Chinese prices generally higher this year. It looks like American collectors and coin buyers are going to be called on to support the coin market in 2015 because so much of the world is in such a financially troubled state. I came back from the Florida United Numismatists Jan. 11. I had arrived Jan. 7. It was a show that on balance was positive, but it was not like shooting fish in a barrel for dealers to make profits. The world coin situation was perhaps best put by Indiana dealer Al Boulanger. His comment, I can t sell Russia. The Russian dealers are not here, sums up the results of a financial crisis that has seen the Russian ruble slump from 32 to the dollar to the present 64. That is a 50 percent decline in value. In other words, anything priced in U.S. dollars has doubled for anyone who has assets or income denominated in rubles. It is no surprise that Russian dealers were not flying to Florida to do business despite the attractions of DisneyWorld for their families as well as the sunshine and warmth seasonally absent from northern climes. These dealers have taken a big hit to cash working capital. Perhaps they should have swallowed the travel costs and come to the United States to sell what they have previously purchased. They did not, which is a likely indicator that owners of Russian numismatic material feel that it is a good hedge against the financial fluctuations that are yet to come. No one a year ago could have forecast such an outcome unless they were privy to Kremlin plans for the Crimea and eastern areas of Ukraine. Some might suggest that FUN is not the most likely location for Russian dealers, especially in light of the fact that the New York International Numismatic Convention was being conducted simultaneously. It is a logical suggestion, but Russian buyers were also absent from the New York show. My colleague George Cuhaj, who is editor of the Standard Catalog of World Coins, was in New York. He said that in the 42 years he has been attending the event it is only the second time that he has seen dealers leave early. It also does not help that the European Union s euro has declined in value. To be sure, it has not fallen as sharply as the ruble, but the movement is enough to make coins priced in dollars at American shows seem expensive to someone who works in euros. As this is written, the financial news headlines state that the euro traded at the same value at which it was introduced in 1999, which was just over $1.17. The peak value for the euro was roughly $1.60 achieved in Its present value has been whacked by over 25 percent from that level, but it was spread out over almost seven years. China should be mentioned in this picture. It has been the twin strong markets of Russian and Chinese coins that have buoyed world coins generally and a relatively strong euro that underpinned a healthy market for European and other coins, new issues included, that are favored by European buyers. It might be said that China is the least changed of these three pillars of the numismatic market. That is true. However, with all of the uncertainty in the financial markets and a question mark about economic growth in the People s Republic, it is logical to assume that no additional waves of purchases will push Chinese prices generally higher this year. The long-term Chinese trend should remain intact, but short term, who knows? That leaves American buyers. They have a strong dollar to play with. They can use them to bid in European auctions. They can support American dealers as well. The question is will they? It is too early to tell. If the American economy can perform as economic forecasters say it will, American collectors will likely feel confident enough to spend more freely. Perhaps we should start a movement advocating that all collectors spend their savings from lower gasoline prices on their collections. Simply doing this would have a huge impact on the numismatic market. That is all it would take to make 2015 a great year. Now we have to sit back a while and watch the year unfold.

12 World Coin Clinic Is there some rule regarding which way a British sovereign is to be depicted on his or her coinage? It is a tradition rather than a rule that the reigning sovereign depict his or her profile image facing in the opposite direction from that of the sovereign s predecessor. King Edward VIII, who was never crowned king but whose likeness appears on some rare British coins of 1936, insisted his portrait face the same direction as that of his father. His reasoning? He believed his left side looked better. Is it true Frederick the Great of Prussia ordered a silver taler coin to be issued, then quickly withdrawn, after capturing Silos from Austria? The master of the mint at Burials was given orders to strike such a coin. According to one account, the coins were supposed to carry the legend Ein Reichsthaler, but instead had a legend reading En Reich Stall Er. The legend was meant to translate to one empire taler, but was allegedly produced translating to He stole the empire. To my knowledge all of the coins were melted. I doubt the master of the mint kept his job. I was wondering if you could tell me about these notes I just picked up at a local flea market. I think they are German. I don t know anything about these or what their value might be. You have German notgeld, a form of emergency money meant to substitute for small change during the financial crisis that followed Germany s defeat in World War I. Notgeld was issued by local municipalities and other entities both in metal and in paper format. The first issues were actually used as money, but the later issues including those of 1923 you have were issued as souvenirs and were sold to make a profit. There are virtually thousands of different notgeld issues, some being more popular than others. Likely RICHARD GIEDROYC Royals can face either way on coins the most popular are those issued depicting the tale of the Pied Piper of Hamlin and the issues of Frankenstein. Are there any coins struck for the German town of Frankenstein? There are medieval silver denier or pfennig-type coins attributed to Frankenstein that depict either a cross or a knight s helmet. Since there are no legends on these coins it is difficult to ensure these are attributed correctly. The Frankenstein name appears on an obscure early 20th century metal notgeld issue from the town. Notgeld paper money was also issued, however this was meant for the tourist trade rather than to be used as emergency money. There is also a relic medal from the late 19th century lamenting the destruction of the local Rathaus. inquiries to Because of space limitations, we are unable to publish all questions. 3-RING COIN & CURRENCY PAGES Gallery Vinyl Pages 3, 4 or 20 pocket 10 Pages $ Pages One size only 100 Pages Pages inch 3-ring binders 1 pc $ pcs $35.10 COWENS STAPLE TYPE HOLDERS 2x2's available in 7 sizes: 1, 5, 10, 25, 50, $1.00, Sm. $ /2 x 1 1/2 available in 5 sizes: 1, 5, 25, 50, Sm. $ minimum per size 2x x1 1 2S x x1 1 2S 3, , Boxes available 2x2x9 $1.15 each or 12/10.80 Plier type stapler $17.95, Staples 5,050 per box $3.40 SUPERSAFE SELF SEAL 2x2 Available in 1, 5, 25, 50, $1.00 SBA sizes 50 pcs./1 size pcs./1 size COIN & CURRENCY WALLETS LIST NET DOZEN 18 Pocket for 2x2 Coin Wallet Pocket for 2x2 Coin Wallet Pocket for 2x2 Coin Wallet Pocket Fract.

14 Mostly Copper DONALD H. DOOL Above, the British called the southern coast of the Persian Gulf the Pirate Coast as the Al Qawasim federation harassed British-flagged shipping from the 17th century into the 19th. After campaigns in 1809 and 1819, Britain and a number of local rulers signed a treaty to combat piracy along the Persian Gulf coast, giving rise to the term Trucial States. Eventually the British entered into a treaty, the Exclusive Agreement, with the Rulers of Abu Dhabi, Dubai, Sharjah, Ajman, Ras Al Khaimah and Umm Al Quwain in March When the British pulled out in 1971, the trucial States formed the United Arab Emirates. Only about 16 percent of the population of the Emirates are citizens, the rest are foreign workers. In the obverse field, 10 fils in Arabic.

16 Mehmed VI, the last Sultan of the Ottoman Empire, leaving the country after the abolition of the Ottoman sultanate, Nov. 17, You could say this was the start of the Republic of Turkey. 16 World Coin News / February 2015 The Republic of Turkey is all that is left of the once vast Ottoman Empire. The empire, which was already in decline, entered World War I on the side of the Central Powers; their defeat led to the breakup the empire. The Treaty of Lausanne of July 24,1923, led to the international recognition of the sovereignty of the newly formed Republic of Turkey as the continuing state of the Ottoman Empire. On the obverse, the crescent and star in the field with TURKIYE CUMHURIYETI (Republic of Turkey) on the perimeter.

17 New year, new coin To ring in the new year, the Royal Mint announced a new coin on Jan. 2, 2015: the United Kingdom s first ever 100 for 100 silver commemorative. Collectors loved it. They snapped up all 50,000 in less than 10 days. The reverse design by Laura Clancy and Glyn Davies features the Elizabeth Tower of Westminster Palace The United Kingdom s first ever 100 for 100 silver commemorative. whose Great Bell, known across the globe as Big Ben, rings in Britain s New Year. The design was inspired by the countless tourists who each day strive to photograph the tower. As such the viewer is at street level gazing up at the iconic clock. Glyn Davies noted, We visited London and it struck us that it s never possible to get an uninterrupted view of the clock tower without it being obscured in some way by the weather, other tourists or even its own location. The obverse continues to show the Ian Rank-Broadley portrait of Queen Elizabeth II, which means we have to wait a little longer to see her new and fifth effigy. Each of the 40 mm diameter coins contains g or 2 oz of.999 fine silver. Each of the 50,000 struck was sold for its face value of 100. Fireworks for Sydney In recent years a small number of world mints have started issuing a coin apiece to mark the solar New Year, in contrast to the hundreds of new issues that now commemorate the Lunar New Year. Last year the Royal Australian Mint issued a colorized, silver, holographic dollar in conjunction with the City of Sydney for New Year s Eve. Sydney is one of the principle cities that feature in media TV reports of New Year s Eve festivities around the globe. The reverse of Australia s solar New Year s Inspire silver dollar shows fireworks bursting over Sydney s landmarks. Image courtesy RAM. Its spectacular fireworks display is centered around the stage provided by its iconic Harbour Bridge. This year the RAM and City of Sydney have repeated their joint venture with a second mm, ½ oz.999 fine silver colorized dollar. It is intended that each year the New Year dollar will feature a theme. In 2015 this theme is Inspire. Mintage, by the way, is 5, / February

20 The first Year of the Goat coin to be issued: Tokelau s gilded $5 proof, left, released on July 1. Right: One of two nanny-and-kid designs that appear on Tokelaun gold $5s. Queen Elizabeth II appears on obverse. Images courtesy treasuresofoz.net. Goat/from Page 1 A Billy-goat prances astride the globe while surrounded by the five elements on Tokelau s silver $2 proof. Image courtesy Modern Numismatics International. sheep or any other four-footed, ruminant mammal with horns on its head such as an antelope. Hence some folk and mints refer to the new lunar year as the Year of the Sheep (YOS). And the sheep of the Chinese zodiac is not some woolly lamp chop but a massive feral mountain critter. Think Bighorn or Mouflon. Regardless of sheep or goat there is little let-up in the outpouring of commemorative lunar pieces. Clearly collector demand has yet to be sated. That said some mintages are down compared with last year and there has been some tweaking of coin denominations and varieties. There has been one major withdrawal. This past year the Bank of Russia completed a 12-year cycle of lunar coins and has ceased further issues. Its departure has been more than compensated by an increasing number of retail houses who are doing their own thing and having distinctive legal tender coins struck for one country or another. Downies was among the first to go down this route. They have been joined in the last few years by Australia s Treasures of Oz, Zurich s International Coin House, Modern Numismatics International in the Netherlands and, most recently, Berlin s JVP Investment Coins. Most of these dealers were among the first to release YOG/YOS coins with these appearing on the market since early July. The YOG/YOS coins detailed here are but a representative sample of the many now available. As last year mintage details are confined to a summary for each coin type. It provides the diameter, weight, metal composition and mintage in parenthesis where these are available and appropriate. The metal is specified as Cu-Ni for cupronickel, Al-Bz for aluminum bronze, Cu for copper, Ag for silver and Au for gold along with the millennial finesses of Ag or Au. At the time of writing gold was selling in New York for $1,155 a troy ounce with silver at just under $16.50 an ounce. Lamb tales Not long after the snake and the horse completed the celestial Great Race run that determined the order of animals in the lunar zodiac, the goat, monkey and rooster arrived at the finish line together. These three had helped each other along the way. They had all gotten into difficulties in crossing the Great River of Stars but then the rooster spotted a raft. He managed to steer it towards the other two animals who clambered aboard. The goat and monkey then pulled the craft through the waterweeds until they reached the far shore. The August Personage of Jade was impressed by this unselfish joint effort. He promptly named the goat, monkey and rooster as the 8th, 9th and 10th animals of the lunar zodiac. Those born in goat years are essentially charming, elegant, creative and gifted. They are folk who enjoy the natural world immensely. In the main, they seldom lack friends. Despite these attributes goats often feel insecure. They are prone to self-doubt and become preoccupied as to how they appear in the eyes of others. As a result, they commonly avoid making difficult decisions or taking sides, while their need to feel loved can lead to them into unfortunate situations. That said, once on top of their anxieties goats are romantic and sensitive. Goats make top artists, writers and musicians but in business they require a skilled manager who will play to their strengths and ignore their tendencies to procrastinate and become overanxious. Tokelauan goats & sheep For the second year in a row the tiny Pacific nation of Tokelau was first off the mark. Once again the majority of this country s issues were produced by Treasures of Oz: Five versions of a 38.6 mm, 31.1 g.999 Ag $5 are available 20 World Coin News / February 2015

The coins come as a proof (2,500), reverse proof (50,000), antique (2,000), gilded proof (2,500), colored proof (1,000), and BU (500,000). A similar design is available as a gold $5 (11 mm, 0.5 g.9999 Au, 1,000) with a different Nanny-and-Kid design on a second, similar-sized, gold $5. In addition two colorized silver $5s (38.6 mm, 31.1 g.999 Ag, 1,500) depict two traditional Chinese zodiacal ruminants: a Urial Ram found on the lower slopes of K2, the world s second highest mountain, and a Rocky Mountain Bighorn Sheep. And for the third year Treasures has produce a pierced lunar $10 colorized proof (70 mm, 2 oz.999 Ag, 1,000). Around the ring trot four goats representing four elements: earth, fire, air and water, all linked by the fifth element, the silver metal of the coin. From Modern Numismatics International (MNI) comes the second Tokelauan lunar proof in their Five Elements series. As last year, the coin is an oval colored $2 (35 x 45 mm, 31.1 g.999 Ag, 2015). A prancing billy-goat pirouettes upon the globe while surrounded by representations of earth, water, air and fire. The fifth element is provided by the metal of the coin. Niuean goats The tiny Pacific island of Niue needs at least four mints to produce its YOG output. In August last came a spectacular proof $8 (65 mm, 5 oz.999 Ag, 500) showing a gilded billy strutting his stuff before two jaded nannies. The coin is designed by Downies Suankaew Chueysai and struck by Produits Artistiques Métaux Précieux. The company s last two issues have been rapid sellouts. This one is expected to go the same way. Zurich-based International Coin House has produced two Niuean YOG coins. The first is a Year of Plenty colorized $1 shaped as for a profile horned goat s head (irregu- A selectively-gilded Billy-goat struts his stuff before a couple of bored Nannies on the reverse of Niue s silver Y0G $8.

The second is a Year of Happiness colorized round $1 (38.61 mm, g.925 Ag, 5,000). From the Mint of Poland come three distinct silver dollars. One designed by Aneta Mozejewska (38.61 mm, g.999 Ag, 6,000) is selectively gold-plated. It features a cherub riding a goat cart beneath a starry sky. The second (38.61 mm, g.925 Ag, 1,500) shows a superbly horned goat contemplating a meal of spring blossom. Below are seven gilded bells. The third by Piotr Demitraszek and Beata Kulesza-Damaziak (41.00 mm, g.999 Ag, 6.000) is cabbageshaped. It comes in a cabbage-shaped box with the reverse showing a nanny passing out cabbage leaves and carrots to five hungry kids. And Germany s JVP Investment Coins Berlin has joined the annual lunacy with a stunning proof $2 (40 mm, 31.1 g.999 Ag, 1,500). Its design is more comprehensive than most YOG coins. The coming year is a Year of the Green Wood Goat/ Sheep and hence the animal is shown in green. In the lower part of the design a large 8 shows the position the goat/ sheep holds in the lunar zodiac. Belarus sheep Belarus has produced its third lunar coin. As in the past two years, their YOG contribution comes as a stunningly different proof 20 rubles (38.61 mm, g.925 Ag, 3,000), dated 2014 and struck at the Kazakhstan Mint. The reverse displays five woolly sheep circling the gilded Chinese character for sheep surrounded by clouds and zodiacal stars. Below is the simple legend that translates YEAR OF THE SHEEP. On the obverse artistically stylized and selectively gilded sun, moon and clockwork elements enclose a central Swarovski cubic zirconia and are, in turn, bounded by solar year dates for the next 12 years commencing The year 2015 is gilded. Australia Perth goats The Perth Mint s eighth issue of their Series II lunar coins includes the traditional proofs and bullion seen in previous years along with specialties. A summary is given below but readers need to keep a weather-eye on Perth s website: www. perthmint.com.au. Further releases are to be expected throughout the coming lunar year, e.g. for the Berlin Fair. The reverse of all gold issues shows a single mature Ibex standing proud and alert. The silver carries a Cashmere goat family portrait: Billy, nanny and one of the kids. Both coins carry the Chinese character for goat along with the P mintmark for The Perth Mint where appropriate. Both designs are the work of Natasha Muhl. Proofs: As in previous years, the three.9999 Au proofs consist of: $15 (18.60 mm, 1/10 oz 5,000, 5,000), $25 (22.60 mm, 1/4 oz, 5,000) and $100 (39.34 mm, 1 oz, 3,000). Mintages are somewhat less than last year and include 1,500 threecoin sets containing one of each proof. For the third year running Perth s gold proof lunar issues are also available with colored reverses. Mintages are 5,000 each of the $15 and $25 and 3,000 of the $100. The four.999 Ag proofs are 50 cents (36.60 mm, 1/2 oz, 9,000), $1 (45.60 mm, 1 oz, 8,500), $2 (55.60 mm, 2 oz, 2,000) and $30 ( mm, 1 kilo, 500). The mintages include 1,000 sets containing the 50 cents, $1 and $2 coins. These are the same mintages as last year. As usual Perth s silver lunar $1 and 50 cents are available as colored proofs. Mintages are 10,000 each. Bullion: Perth s.9999 Au lunar bullion is in its 20th year while the.999 Ag bullion marks its 17th. For the YOG there are eight gold and seven silver coins. There is no mintage limit on the gold $5 (1.556 g), $15 ( g), $25 (7.777 g), $50 ( g), $200 ( g), $1,000 ( g) and $3,000 ( g) coins but production will close at the 22 World Coin News / February 2015

This coin is also available as a high relief striking on a 6mm Canadian moutons The Royal Canadian Mint was quick off the mark with this year s lunar issues. All were on the streets by August last. And for the RCM it is very much the Year of the Wood Sheep or, for the Québécois, l Année du Mouton en Bois. The coins continue the series of recent years but with a couple of new additions. Some mintages are down on last year. Designs by Aries Cheung are again to the fore: a $15 proof (38 mm, g.9999 Ag, 18,888) and a $150 proof (28 mm, g.750 Au, 2.500). Canadian artist Simon Ng makes his second appearance with a three-quarter profile of a Bighorn Sheep (Ovis canadensis canadensis). The background is filled by a stand of bamboo, a symbol of longevity. This design appears on the reverse of a $10 (34 mm, g.9999 Ag, 28,888) and a new $5 (16 mm, 3.14 g.9999 Au, 2,888). For the sixth year the RCM has struck its distinctively-shaped, scalloped lunar Lotus $15 designed by Three Degrees Creative Group (38 mm, 26.7 g.9999 Ag, 18,888). The same Three Degrees design features on the reverses of the RCM s two 1 kilo proof lunar coins introduced two years back: $250 (102.1 mm, 1 kilo.9999 Ag, 388) and $2,500 (101.6 mm, 1 kilo.9999 Au, 10). This year the $250 disports a branch of colored maple leaves at upper left. A second new addition to the RCM s lunar stable is a silver $5 proof (36.07, g.9999 Ag, 8,888). The reverse design by Simon Ng sports a colorized Bighorn Sheep. This is the first coin in a planned 12-year series. All coins feature the RCM s distinctive, uncrowned effigy of Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt. Collectors can try if their neighborhood dealer is unable to supply. Goat/Page 24 / February

Australia RAM s goats For its eighth set of lunar coins the Royal Australian Mint has rung a few changes. Six coins have a common reverse design by Chrissy Lau showing a group of goats gathered beneath an auspicious flowering plum tree. They are surrounded by design elements used on previous RAM lunar coins designed by Vladimir Gottwald. The six coins are a BU dollar (25 mm, 9 g Al-Bz, 20,000), proof dollar (25 mm, g.999 Ag, 10,000), proof $10 (17.53 mm, 1/10th oz.9999 Au, 1,500), proof dollar (40 mm, 1 oz.999 Ag, 5,000), proof $10 (65.10 mm,.999 Ag, 500), and proof $30 (99.95 mm, 1 kg.999 fine Ag, 500). And for a fourth year the Mint has produced a mm tetradecagonal 50 cents. This year the coin comes in two versions: BU (15.37 g Cu-Ni, 50,000) and frosted UNC (16.20 g.999 Ag, unspecified). The design by Alex Vorodeyev shows a domestic nanny and her kid. All RAM issues can be sourced from the Mint s e-shop, or from Fiji s two colorized yin-yang silver dollars.

Once again the coin designs are the work of British artist and printmaker Wuon-Gean Ho who found inspiration in past veterinary experiences, particularly her memories of the lambing season. As in the Year of the Horse, six coins are being issued but with some differences in mintages, composition and finish. The six consist of 500 proof-like (65 mm, g.9999 Au, 38), 100 proof (32.69 mm, g.9999 Au, 888), 10 BU (16.50 mm, 3.13 g.9999 Au, 2,888), 2 proof (38.61 mm, g.999 Ag plated with.9999 Au, 4,888), 2 proof (38.61 mm, g.999 Ag, 11,888), and 10 proof (65.00 mm, g.999 Ag, 1,088).

Once again both lunar coins have been struck by Den Kongelige Mynt (Royal Norwegian Mint) and are available from Treasures of Oz, Collectors need to be in quick as both mintages are down. From an unknown source comes a partially gilded goat family on a proof $10 (40.00 mm, 31.1 g.999 Ag, 8,888), that shows a centrally located pearl on the reverse. All Fiji coins display the country s coat-of-arms on the obverse in the place of Queen Elizabeth II,who featured until last year. Macau s goat The Monetary Authority of Macau announced the eighth coin in their lunar series on Aug. 21: colorized proof 250 patacas (21.96 mm, 1/4oz.9999 Au, 5,000), colorized proof 100 patacas (65 mm, 5oz.999 Ag, 2000), and colorized proof 20 patacas (40.70 mm, 1oz.999 Ag, 8,000). The reverse of all coins shows a quite serene goat emerging from a brilliantly hued rhododendron thicket. The UNESCO World Heritage Site depicted on the back is one of Macau s oldest historical structures, the Mount Fortress. There is an increasing demand for these coins and The Singapore Mint was looking at balloting the 250 patacas because of demand. Both Banco National Ultramarino (BNU) and Bank of China (BOC) have been issuing specially designed 10 pataca lunar notes since Their Year of the Goat/Sheep issues were released on Oct. 6. Both notes are printed in auspicious red. Both have closely similar designs. The face shows a stylized goat decorated with a lotus blossom the national flower of Macau. Behind is displayed the 12-fold Chinese zodiacal cycle with each of its divisions labeled with its appropriate animal in Chinese. The serial number prefix is shown as symbol Yi Wèi, the formal names of the Heavenly Stem and of Earthly Branch associated with the new Year of the Goat/Sheep. Each note s back shows a mirror image of the stylized goat on the note s face. In the center foreground Chinese children celebrate the New Year with fireworks. Behind stands the Ma Zu Buddhist temple that has been a consistent feature on lower value Macau notes for some 60 years. Alongside is the current head office building of the appropriate bank. In 2012 both banks issued 10 million 10-pataca bank notes for the Year of the Reverse of Laos silver proof YOG 2000 kip with its central jade core. Image courtesy Dragon. Since then they have been authorized to issue up to 20 million lunar notes, but the exact number released each year is not known. Laos s goat The fourth lunar coin from Laos follows the pattern of previous issues. The reverse of the selectively gold-plated 2000 kip proof (55 mm, 62.2 g.999 Ag, 2,888) contains an inset ring of Burmese jade carrying appropriate YOG inscriptions in both Chinese and English. The silver ring encircling the jade core displays a herd of horned mountain-going goats. The coin is struck by MDM Münzhandelsgesellschaft mbh.

The reverse depicts the 17th century French fabulist, Jean de La Fontaine, along with all 12 lunar animals. At the time of writing there were just two coins available: a 50-eruo proof (22 mm, 8,45 g.920 AU, 1,000) and 10 euro (37 mm, 22.2 g.900 Ag, 10,000). No 200- euro gold proof had yet been announced, as happened last year, but one report indicates it will appear again. The coins were available from the e-boutique at Cook Islands goats For the fifth year the Cook Islands have issued four rectangular 1 oz.999 fine silver lunar dollars (47.60 x mm, g.999 Ag, 3000) courtesy of Perth Mint. The designs by Tom Vaughan depict four different colored goat families set against a mountain landscape. Together the four designs produce a single linked image. And for a second year MDM has struck a massive 5 oz silver proof for the Cooks (65 mm, g.999 Ag, 888) in which the lunar animal is engraved in mother of pearl. This year the coin is denominated as $25 unlike 2014 when a similar piece was assigned $50. Last year MDM produced a similar 5 oz gold but a repeat for the YOG had not been announced at the time of writing.

On the obverse the national emblem of the People s Republic of China is set in a wreath of auspicious lotus flowers and fish invoking a further year of plenty. The reverse of all the uncolored rounds, rectangles, fans and plum blossoms features an Argali ram standing four square and proud before the spirit of a celestial sheep. The lunar year is shown using the official name of the eighth Earthly Branch rather than identifying it with a four-footed, ruminant mammal with horns on its head. The proof.999 Au consist of rounds: a 100,000 (180 mm, 10 kg, 18), 20,000 (110 mm, 2 kg, 100), 50 (18 mm, 3.11 g, 120,000); a rectangle: 2,000 (64 x 40 mm, g, 2,000); fan-shaped: 150 ( g, 30,000); and scalloped plum blossom: 10,000 (100 mm, 1kg, 118), 200 (27 mm, g, 8,000).

Singapore s goats Singapore was the last of the major world mints to issue YOG coins, its thirtythird lunar issue. It did so on Nov. 20. Along with their traditional nine gold, silver and base metal coins the mint has released its second almanac coin puzzle set (96 mm, 8 oz.999 Ag, 3,000). As was the case last year this comprises a central $10 coin surrounded by 12 interlocking jigsaw $2 coins, each depicting one of the 12 lunar animals and using designs from one of Singapore s earlier coin series. The central coin features Singapore s national flower, the orchid Vanda Miss Joaquim, plated in gold to commemorate the nation s golden jubilee in All the coin reverses, like those of this year s PRC coins, display the formal name of the eighth Earthly Branch associated with the new lunar year: (Yi Wèi), with the character repeated across the field behind the lunar goat. The.9999 fine Au coins include: $200 (60 mm, g, 200), $100 (33 mm, g, 2000), $5 (21.96 mm, 7.78 g, 2000), and $1 (7 mm, 0.3 g, 10,000). The.999 fine Ag coins consist of an $80 (100 mm, 1 kg, 500), $25 (65.00 mm, g, 250), $2 proof (38.70 mm, 20 g, 10,000), and $10 colorized piedfort (45.00 mm, g, 20,000).

The coins themselves are available from or if you are a most auspicious wood goat, from your favorite coin dealer. The popularity of the silver $25 coin has seen its availability restricted to balloting. But there s more! There is an abundance of further lunar coins available to collectors in Unfortunately many issuing countries and mints failed to provide mintage details and/or images. And always remember caveat emptor! Buy solely from reputable sources. Numerous replica and unauthorized lunar coins and notes continue to appear on the market. Some are plated and/or underweight. These are commonplace on the Internet. Otherwise, numismatists should perhaps welcome the Year of the Goat with that cry familiar to all Chinese children: Live long and prosper, now give me the money!

28 Around the World RICHARD GIEDROYC ISIS specie an experiment in terror Coin collectors who are interested in the history of their prize numismatic artifacts are occasionally accused of living in the past. Reminiscing about the past is one thing. Living in the past physically is another. The terrorist group ISIS currently occupying parts of Syria and Iraq is a prime example of an organization that thinks they can bring back the good old days. There are politicians in Russia who would like to restore the former Soviet Union. There are British politicians who would like the sun to once more never set on the British Empire. All of these people would agree if they ever succeeded they would need to adopt their politics to today s world. They re interests are not focused on living in the past, but in restoring the glory of the past in a modern environment. When a would-be political power decides to practice such antiquated and barbaric practices as beheading all of its prisoners, murdering a messenger from another group simply because they didn t like the message, or reverting to social practices the rest of the world abandoned centuries earlier this can be seen as trying to live in the past. This is an attempt to roll back the clock. This isn t an attempt to regain the glory of a former empire, but to truly live in the past. You can t just roll back the calendar socially, politically, and economically. We live in a world of fiat money. The gold standard for coins was abandoned worldwide during the early 20th century. The silver standard for coins was abandoned during the 1960s. Since that time there have been a few attempts to reintroduce specie coinage, coins that are accepted at their intrinsic value rather than due to the trust of the public in the economy and political system for which it stands. All such attempts at resurrecting specie coinage have failed. People have simply hoarded rather than used the precious metal coins. So, what makes the terrorist organization ISIS think their plans to introduced precious metal coins into regions they now occupy will work? This will be an interesting experiment, but insisting gold dinar and silver dirham coins such as those used 28 World Coin News / February 2015 by medieval Islamic caliphates is the way to go is naïve, if not ignorant. The ratio between gold and silver fluctuates daily. The spot price of gold and silver likewise fluctuates daily, increasing or decreasing the purchasing power of any coins of these metals that are in circulation. The number of coins, precious metal or not, in circulation is only a fraction of the money supply circulating today. Precious metal coins were in use at a time when far fewer coins were needed. Many of the coins in use even during this past time were base metal coins, the gold and silver being used primarily by the wealthier classes. The realities are that you can never go home anymore. The day of specie payment is over. The Nov. 19 issue of New Statesman has an excellent explanation of what ISIS can expect to experience once it issues precious metal coins. According to the article, Problems with the gold standard include finding the metal: greater availability leads to inflation; scarcity leads to deflation, which limits demand and cuts investment. The coins themselves are subject to clipping, people cutting small bits off the edges, and hoarding, as Germany experienced in the lead up to its hyper-inflation in the early-1920s. Harsh punishments will not help bolster the currency as people become wary of handling clipped coinage, avoid all but the most essential transactions or resort to barter. Sooner or later gold and silver currencies have to be debased. A referendum in Switzerland mandating that the Swiss central bank boost its gold reserves from eight to 20 percent was recently defeated. Shouldn t this send a message? You can change the images on your coins to conform to what is acceptable to your religious or political beliefs. To try to force an economic system into something that was abandoned a long time ago by the rest of the world demonstrates a lack of a grasp on reality. Off with their heads went out with Alice in Wonderland. Should ISIS ever succeed in issuing its specie coinage it will be interesting to see how long this specie system lasts. Antiquities aren t financing ISIS, dealers say There may be rumors, but there is no basis to accusations antiquities are contributing to the funding of the terrorist group ISIS, according to the International Association of Dealers in Ancient Art. On Nov. 27 IADAA released a statement reading, Exhaustive investigation has revealed that the most important sources of the allegation the trade in ancient objects would finance IS[IS] are not existing. IADAA is summarizing the latest state of knowledge. In our press release of Oct. 21, 2014, we pointed out that the validity of the facts and figures presented in the suggestive broadcast Das geplunderte Erbe (which have been adopted by many media) of the German trade in ancient art being involved in funding ISIS are extremely unlikely. During the last week, two articles have been published by independent parties supporting our point of view, one from Suddeutsche Zeitung [newspaper], the other the blog Chasing Aphroditeâ. IADAA currently has 32 members in eight countries. The IADAA findings did not name ancient coins specifically, but since antiquities were being addressed associated coins are implied as well. The rumor appears to have been initiated in the June 15 issue of The Guardian newspaper where CIA and other officials were reported as finding evidence of ancient art funding ISIS among the personal affects of recently killed ISIS member Abdulrahman al- Bilawi. This report has never been substantiated. According to the Nov. 15 issue of Suddeutsche Zeitung, His broadcast [broadcast by Vokmar Kabisch] Das geplunderte Erbe is still aired by Phoenix. The IADAA demands that this and similar broadcasts that are based on false and obsolete information are removed from the program at once. Chasing Aphrodite presented other information. According to the blog, Danti [Boston University Assistant Professor Michael Danti] had published an article in the magazine Foreign Policy on Oct. 17, 2014, in which he called the illicit trade with ancient objects the sec- Antiquities/Page 32

29 Around the World Counterfeit coins spread worldwide Italian police seize Shanghai money A significant cache of counterfeit euro coins originating from China was seized December 12 by police in Naples, Italy. Palermo prosecutor Calogero Ferrara was the lead investigator into what is being called the Shanghai Money investigation. According to Ferrara, this is the largest seizure of euro currency since European Union currency was introduced in January The seizure involved 556,000 euros face value (about $692,000 US) in coins, 306,000 of them being 1- and 2-euro coins. The Carabinieri paramilitary police warrant was reported by the Reuters news service to read, They [the coins] were high-quality fakes produced at a clandestine Chinese mint and ready to be put on the Italian market just before the Christmas spending rush. The police arrested 12 individuals, four being Chinese nationals, on charges of conspiracy to produce and distribute counterfeit money. What is particularly disturbing is that Ferrara told reporters the 2-euro counterfeit coins are what he called a perfect product unable to be distinguished from genuine coins unless examined under magnification. What is worse, the fakes are capable of being accepted by vending machines. The Chinese newspaper Beijing News recently reported fake euro coins being sold on the Alibaba Internet online shopping site Taobao. Circulating coins are small change, aren t they? Larger denominations are in bank note form, encouraging counterfeiters to make fake notes rather than coins right? Well, if this is true, why are there everincreasing reports of counterfeit contemporary circulation strike coins appearing in ever-increasing numbers worldwide? The reason is that there are a significant number of countries that in recent years have replaced their lower denomination bank notes with coins. Many of these low denomination bank notes had a life span of perhaps six to 18 months, while the coins with which they have been replaced are anticipated to still be circulating 20 to as much as 40 years later. Only U.S. Congress could ignore this cost-saving measure. Australia circulates coins in denominations as high as $5 (about $4.25 US). Canada has a $2 face value coin equal to about $1.80 US. The European Union has a 2-euro coin with an exchange value of more than $2.40 US. Japan uses a 500- yen coin with an exchange value of more than $6 US. These are not small change values and as such are increasingly catching the attention of counterfeiters. The Sept. 28 issue of South China Morning Post newspaper quoted Japan Mint Director of the Overseas Business Division Kazuya Izumi as saying, Our production technologies, such as those to provide latent images and the helically milled edge that have been applied to the 500-yen coin, are greatly admired in the world. These coins may be greatly admired, but the latent images and special milling are meant to deter counterfeiters. Great Britain s 1 coin has been the target of counterfeiters as well. The Nov. 23 Fermanagh Herald newspaper reported the British Royal Mint has advised local banks that the banks will not be reimbursed for fake 1 coins. An unnamed banking spokesman in Fermanagh (Ireland) was quoted by the newspaper as saying, nearly all of us will be handling at least a few fakes each year. The situation is particularly bad in several area of the United Kingdom. Fermanagh bank inspector Roy Robinson described how to identify bogus coins for the newspaper, saying: The lettering on the side is poorly aligned, the milled edge RICHARD GIEDROYC may be poorly defined or the lettering uneven in depth and spacing. The coloring may appear more shiny and golden than normal, with little sign of aging. Perhaps the most blatant coin counterfeiting now in progress is a cyber forgery that has targeted Thailand. Thailand s Treasury Department has stated the dated 2-baht coins (Yes, 2016, not 2015!) now being sold on the Internet are counterfeits. According to the Nov.5 Pattaya Mail newspaper, Director-General of the Treasury Department Naris Chaisutr dismissed a rumor that many coin collectors have been gathering these silver-colored 2 baht coins for speculation. He also stated that the coins were fake, as the department has stopped distributing silver-colored 2-baht coins since 2008 and reverted to producing the gold-colored ones instead. Investigations reveal that the photos of the silver-colored 2-baht coins for 2016 that were posted online might have been photo-shopped by basing it on the image of an actual silver-colored 2-baht coin for What hasn t been confirmed yet is if any of these bogus coins exist physically. The newspaper source was the Chinese micro-blogging site Sina Weibo. According to a Weibo user s on-line comment, The yuan-to-euro exchange rate is less than eight and people are spending 500 yuan to buy fakes. Unbelievable! Taobao officials were reported to be addressing the illegal sale of the counterfeit coins. According to the newspaper, [Taobao] staff have been looking into whether the coins are real or counterfeit, and promise that any illegal products will be removed from the site. The Beijing newspaper also reported coin specialist Yuan Yinglong telling the newspaper counterfeiting coins is no longer difficult due to current manufacturing technology. While the Shanghai Money arrests are drawing attention to counterfeit euro coins, the European Central Bank has been quick to point out that the bogus coins represent only a fraction of the total number of coins in circulation throughout the EU. Italian police have been busy tracking down euro coin and bank note counterfeiters ever since the introduction of the euro. Authorities encountered their first fake euros within days of the introduction of the new currency. The first large scale counterfeiting raid took place about six months later. Statistics from 2012 indicated EU member European central banks were withdrawing between 550,000 and 800,000 counterfeit euro bank notes from circulation annually at that time. / February

30 Around the World Italian counterfeiters linked to mafia Police in Carabinieri, Italy, arrested 56 people in the Naples metropolitan region in early December 2014, charging them with counterfeiting coins and primarily bank notes. Officials acknowledged that those being arrested were suspected of being members of the Napoli Group. The crime organization has been dubbed the Napoli Group by Europol investigators. Who or what is the Napoli Group, you ask? The Napoli Group is a counterfeiting crime group, likely closely associated with the Camorra Mafia crime syndicate believed to be based in Naples. The December 4, 2014 issue of The Independent newspaper in London said the Napoli Group may be responsible for making and distributing 90 percent of the fake money now circulating worldwide. The Napoli Group is better than being well organized. It even has its own argot. Money is referred to as postcards, gnocchi, or shoes, while US dollars are referred to as Americans or Lithuania launches euro currency system It is a massive undertaking. The Lithuanian Mint is still striking what will eventually become 370 million coins with a total weight of about 1,740 tons. The Bank of Lithuania recently received 132 million bank notes with a total weight of about 114 tons. All this was being accomplished in preparation for the Jan. 1, 2015 launch of the European Union s euro currency system in Lithuania. Collectors are always interested in new issues, but information on the logistics that bring a new currency system to life are often difficult to obtain. The Lithuanian Mint stopped striking centas and litas denominated coins, going to three shifts per day in order to strike sufficient quantities of the new euro coin denominations. Euro coins were being delivered to the vaults of the central bank by October. Some of these coins were released early as educational tools in preparation for the upcoming currency change. The bank note situation was entirely different and won t go as smoothly. The Bank of Lithuania has borrowed euro bank notes from the Deutsche Bundesbank, the central bank of Germany. There is an agreement in place through which these bank notes must be returned to the German bank once Lithuanian euro bank notes are printed at a yet to be announced European Union certified security printing establishment. According to Bank of Lithuania Cash Services head Gintaras Moska, Although this is a large scale logistic process, it is automated enough and managed effectively. Now we need much less physical labor than with the adoption of the litas, when the embassies. Among the Napoli Group s recent achievements is to successfully pass fake 300 bank notes in Germany, quite a task considering the European Union doesn t have a bank note of that denomination! According to the European Central Bank s Anti-Counterfeiting Section chief Allister McCallum, counterfeiters tend to fall into one of three categories: amateurs with nothing more than an ink-jet printer; rogue states; and skilled professionals. The Napoli Group obviously falls into the third group. The recent arrests will not put the Napoli Group out of business, but the arrests may in turn lead to more arrests elsewhere. Newspapers reported related arrests in Avellino, Genova, Palermo, and in Turin in Italy during early December. Naples prosecutor Giovanni Colangelo identified 10 distinct criminal groups involved in the counterfeiting in the November 26, 2014 issue of The Telegraph newspaper. According to Colangelo, each of these groups RICHARD GIEDROYC specializes in a different stage of the counterfeiting process. These stages range from purchasing off-set printing equipment to buying the appropriate paper and ink to the physical distribution of the money. The fake currency is distributed through Albania, Bulgaria, Colombia, France, Germany, Iran, Iraq, Morocco, Russia, Spain, Tunisia, and Turkey among other places, all of which use significant amounts of physical cash in daily commerce. The recent arrests followed a twoyear police investigation. The investigation was initiated by the discovery of a counterfeiter s printing press in Arzano near Naples. Europol disclosed through the May 2012 issue of the German publication Diplomatisches-magazin that there are two major counterfeiting centers under surveillance. One is in the Campania region of Italy. The other is in the cities of Plovdiv and Haskovo in southern Bulgaria. There are other places of interest, a Europol spokesman Mafia/Page 32 Bank of Lithuania s employees had to carry by hand bags of the new currency. We do not doubt that the amount of bank notes and coins necessary for the euro adoption will reach commercial banks at the scheduled time. On Dec. 10 Board Chairman of the Bank of Lithuania Vitas Vasiliauskas said of the recent shipment of bank notes from Germany to Vilnius, Historically this is the largest shipment of cash to Lithuania. The operation was completed safely and successfully. The euro bank notes are already being distributed from the Bank of Lithuania s vaults in Vilnius and Kaunas to commercial banks, from where they will continue their journey to trade and service enterprises and finally early next year [2015] they will reach the pockets of the country s population. We appreciate the particularly successful cooperation with the partners who participated in the operation. There isn t a lot of information available on the massive shipments of coins from the mint to the central bank. Likewise, local banks will need to return Lithuanian obsolete coins to the mint. Since this is an ongoing operation this makes sense. The bank note shipment, however, have received a lot of press coverage. The notes were shipped by air in three flights, two of which were delivered to Lithuania s capital city of Vilnius, the other shipment to Kaunas. According to Lithuanian Minister of Internal Affairs Saulius Skvernelis, The police began to prepare for the euro shipment Lithuania/Page World Coin News / February 2015

31 Around the World Zimbabwe introduces bond coins Zimbabwe has had more than its share of financial woes. The government began the exclusive use of foreign currencies after domestic hyperinflation reached a nightmarish 231 million percent sometime in No one knows the final percentage, since the government simply stopped calculating it. Since that time, beginning in 2009, Zimbabwe has been using a concoction involving the Botswana pula, British pound, Chinese yuan, European Union euro, Indian rupee, Japanese yen, South African rand, the US dollar, chewing gum, and just about anything other than Zimbabwe s own money. About 80 percent of all financial transactions are now made in US currency, according to the Reserve Bank of Zimbabwe. Now a shortage of coins, regardless of where the coins originated, is helping once more to feed domestic inflation. Zimbabwe has addressed the coin shortage problem by announcing new bond coins, a domestic series of coins pegged in value on par with the US dollar. Reserve Bank of Zimbabwe Governor John Mangudya said of the new issue, The bond coins derive their name from the U.S. $50 million bond coin facility that the reserve bank arranged for the purpose of providing the coins with intrinsic value. The bond coins would therefore be a good store of value. Consumers and businesses would be able to exchange the coins for paper money at their banks. Mangudya argues the new 1-, 5-, 10-, 25-, and 50-cent coins are a good thing for the Zimbabwe economy. On December 5 the news agency al Jazeera reported, On Twitter, Zimbabweans used the hashtag #BondCoins to discuss the new currency. Many criticized the new plan and warned of a return to hyper-inflation. In the Dec. 5 issue of The Herald newspaper Mangudya indicated they [Reserve Bank of Zimbabwe] don t want to bring back the Zimbabwean dollar due to confidence issues. Mangudya noted businesses routinely either round up prices or make change using sweets rather than coins as change. Newspaper reports indicated merchants routinely issue vouchers as change, the vouchers only being redeemable RICHARD GIEDROYC at their stores. Mangudya said the new coins will be redeemable for foreign currencies at banks. The Herald reported, In his mid-term fiscal policy review, Finance and Economic Development Minister Patrick Chinamasa said [the] government had no appetite to change the multi-currency policy urging the nation to take comfort in the continuous re-assurance from both the monetary and fiscal authorities. The Dec. 5 issue of the newspaper New Zimbabwe quoted Mangudya as saying, Our expectation is that the introduction of bond coins would necessitate correct pricing for goods and services which hitherto was constrained by the absence of an appropriate system of coins. At a press conference the central bank governor indicated the initial coin release would involve $10 million U.S. value in bond coins. These would be released between December 2014 and March Mangudya told those at the press conference, This translates to just below two percent of total bank deposits. Under normal circumstances, the proportion of coins to money in circulation in an economy is between 20 to 25 percent. However due to the fact that Zimbabwe is using multiple currencies, we envisage the bond coins to remain below 10 percent of total bank deposits. Zimbabwe will be importing the new bond coins since it is too expensive for the coins to be made domestically. Lithuania/from Page 30 from the moment it became clear that Lithuania would adopt the euro. We worked intensively together with the Bank of Lithuania. This operation will go down in history, and it is an especially important moment for the economy. At the same time it was also a great challenge for the police, and it was able to deal successfully with this challenge. Movement of the bank notes involved the local and traffic police, Lithuanian Police Anti-terrorist Operations Unit Aras, territorial police, airport security, and the State Border Guard Service. The public was informed of the bank note shipment in advance! The new coins and bank notes were distributed to retail and service providers beginning Dec. 1. Information was not available at the time this article was being written regarding the exchange and possible demonetization of Lithuania s former litas currency system or the future disposition of the obsolete coins and bank notes. / February

32 Mafia/from Page 30 describing the Italian and Bulgarian regions as only being the tip of the iceberg. During 2012 Carabinieri Currency Anti-counterfeiting Unit Colonel Alessandro Gentili said, In Italy, there s a great, ancient and august tradition: Here, they make fake money, done well. Giugliano is still the capital. It has the best professionals. European Union officials have previously described the Napoli Group as being the arch-enemy of the European Central Bank. The Napoli Group uses mobile workshops and highly specialized equipment. Police sources indicated the Camorra Mafia launders most of its counterfeit bank notes into Colombia, the Middle East, and into North Africa where the forgeries are used to purchase cocaine and other narcotics. The bank notes gradually find their way back into the European Union countries, making the counterfeits more difficult to detect. The Camorra Mafia is also allegedly into drug trafficking, prostitution, and the illegal dumping of toxic waste. The organization controls the number of bogus notes and coins being produced by the Napoli Group. Italian Supreme Court Justice Raffaele Cantone conducted investigations into the Camorra organization earlier in his career. The April 30, 2012, issue of the New York Times quoted Cantone as saying, Organized crime certainly obtains a cut from this activity, and it can intervene to regulate its use in the market because it has economic interests in the area. It looks like supply and demand considerations have to be taken when making counterfeit money just as much as it does with anything else in business. Antiquities/from Page 28 ond largest source of revenue of ISIS. When asked by the author of the blog, Danti had to admit that his source was a report dating to which could not refer to ISIS for the simple fact that ISIS did not even exist in The blog continues, The source would deal with al- Qaida and Danti wanted to reach a conclusion by analogy. In this study, though, the category looting would not refer to archaeological objects only, but to all stolen commercial goods so that the report sheds no light on the trade in ancient objects. There is reason for concern regarding acceptance of accusations regarding the trade in antiquities. There is already considerable political pressure on collectors and museums in the United States that own antiquities and ancient coins demanding their return to foreign governments as being the cultural heritage of these countries. As Chasing Aprhodite concludes, The truth is we have very little reliable data on the global revenue generated by the illicit antiquities trade, and even less on the role it plays in funding terror groups. It is, to paraphrase Donald Rumsfeld, a known unknown: we know it happens, but not much more. The concern, which was echoed by Chasing Aprhodite, is that irresponsible accusations might influence decisions being made by the State Departments Cultural Property Advisory Committee. It is this department that will influence policies covering the trade in antiquities, including coins, in the United States.

33 Public strikes last 2014, first 2015 coins By Kerry Rodgers The public striking of the last dollar of the old year and the first dollar of the new is now an entrenched tradition at the Royal Australian Mint. Long may it continue. It sure serves to put Australian numismatics on media screens and pages Down Under. As in previous years, it kicked off on Dec. 31 when a large crowd gathered in the Mint s public gallery for the Last Coin of the Year event. They were the usual mix of collectors who had traveled to Canberra especially for the occasion and folk who just happened to be visiting the Mint that afternoon. Among the collectors was the winner from 2013 who was hoping to make it two in a row. All those present were eligible to go in a drawing to determine who would have the honor of striking the Lucky Last 2014 Terra Australis aluminumbronze dollar. The winner was a first-time visitor, Judith Jordan. She and her family had come from Musk in Victoria for the day and stayed on to see the result only when encouraged to do so by a Mint tour guide. And then the clock moved forward 12 hours to Jan. 1. There was considerable interest to see if collector Harley Russo, the successful First Striker in 2013 and 2014, would go for the trifecta. In the event Harley and his family arrived a little earlier than in past years to stake his claim to the First Coin Striking of He secured top spot in the queue on Christmas night. Apparently there had been some chatter on social media about others showingup on Boxing Day and Harley wanted to be sure. Hat trick! Harley Russo using the RAM s public coin press to strike the first ANZAC dollar of Harley started collecting some five years ago when his mother showed him her collection. He particularly enjoys collecting the Australian mintmark series especially so now has a unique set of three first-struck coins as well as the last coin for His family told Mint staff that there had been an attack of nerves as they drove up Denison Street, but they arrived to find the entrance claim-jumper free. However several later arrivals have announced that next year, on the 50th anniversary of Australian decimal currency, they intend to give Harley a run for his money. Many joined the Russos on the day before New Year s Eve keen to be among the first hundred to strike an ANZAC dollar in The 100th person arrived before 9 a.m. All were in a cheerful mood and most had come prepared with umbrellas and chairs. To mark 2015 as their 50th anniversary year, the Royal Australian Mint went an extra mile. Harley not only got to strike the first dollar of the New Year but received a one-off coin set featuring all Australian mintmark and privy mark coins for And the next 99 people in the queue were given a case and capsule to hold their coin, along with the numbered certificate they have received in past years.

34 A.G. Wyon s pattern crown for George V struck in gold, one of just two known. Gold sovereigns struck in India have an I mintmark above the date. DNW/from Page 1 example, by early 1920 an Australian shilling contained one shilling and fourpence (25 cents) worth of silver. As a consequence the British government took a decision in 1920 to reduce the silver content of its coins from.925 fine, i.e. sterling, to.500 fine. It was expected other countries of the Empire would follow suit with Canada doing so the same year although to just a modest.800 fine. New reverse Australian silver dies had been prepared by London s Royal Mint. All carried a small star above the date to indicate the reduced fineness of the coins they were intended to produce. Thirty pairs of working dies with stars were dispatched to the Sydney Mint from London in October By the time these arrived and the Australian coins were ready for production the price of silver had dropped sufficiently to make the exercise pointless. Not all the dies were wasted. Some were used to strike 522, shillings in.925 silver, despite all having stars above the date. Although this star is not a mintmark its presence on these coins does indicate they were stuck at the Sydney Mint. In addition a limited number of trial strikes of patterns or specimens were made from both the 1920 and 1921 florin and shilling Royal Mint dies. The coin to be offered by DNW is just one of six known to have been minted of this type. It is only lightly toned and in superior condition to examples of the 1920 and 1921 Australian patterns housed in Melbourne s Museum of Victoria. The auction house has been unable to trace any sale of a 1921 star-overdate pattern shilling in the last 30 years. As a consequence, when the piece goes to the auction block, it is expected to carry an estimate of at least 100,000 to 120,000 ($150,000-$200,000). Greg McDonald s Australian pocket coin catalog prices a 1920 star-over-date shilling pattern at $300,000. He does not list the 1921 coin. However, if Australian silver rarities are not your métier, perhaps a British George V 1910 pattern crown in gold by A.G. Wyon might appeal. One of just two known will be offered in the same DNW sale. It comes with an estimate of 80,000 to 100,000 ($125, ,000). This crown is one of a series of coins prepared for George V in 1910 when he ascended to the throne following the death of his father, Edward VII, in May. Despite Wyon s illustrious pedigree none of his designs were chosen for the new Great Britain coins struck in 1911 and his pattern crown is a numismatic rarity. The present example is in near mint state and comes with an impressive pedigree: ex G. Hamilton-Smith, Sir Kenyon Vaughan Morgan, Lady Duveen, and C. Dabney Thompson collections. Gold/from Page 1 licensee in the sub-continent is MMTC- PAMP India. The partnership between the two companies has seen gold sovereigns struck in India for the first time in nearly a century. The Lord Mayor s striking provided a visible demonstration of the benefits of Britain and India working together. Sovereigns featuring Benedetto Pistrucci s St George and the Dragon design were last struck in India in 1918 when The Royal Mint s Bombay branch minted 1,300,000. They were not struck again in the subcontinent until February At that time MMTC- PAMP s facility near Delhi did so using tools and techniques provided by the Royal Mint. The strikings have continued into 2014 with all Indian-made sovereigns carrying the I mintmark above the date. Dennis Gill lists spring offerings Numismatist Dennis Gill has released his winter/spring list of select world coins. Also featured are select ancient coins and a special collection of South African coins. Also among his special offerings are coins of the British Commonwealth and Latin America. Interested collectors may receive the list by contacting him at Dennis Gill, P.O. Box 175, Dept. B, Garden City, NY 11530; phone or fax World Coin News / February 2015

35 Auctions Islamic coins realize $708,941 in Spink sale On Dec. 2 a major collection of over 1,200 Islamic coins went under the hammer at Spink London. The Islamic collection was particularly comprehensive with issues ranging from those showing early Byzantine influences to examples from the late 20th Century. The tone of the sale was set with Lot 1, a rare Umayyad Arab-Byzantine gold semissis, c , from North Africa. In EF condition it quickly romped to 12,600 [$19,705]. It was, however, soon eclipsed by a Umayyad gold dinar struck in Ifriqiya, AH 101 (719 CE), that also came in EF. It had little difficulty in making 14,400 [$22,464] with a similar dinar of AH 102 in the name of Yazid II fetching 10,800 [$16,848]. Both are among the first Islamic coins to have their designs rendered entirely in calligraphy and are inscribed with the Kalima of Islamic faith that may be translated as, There is no God but God, and Mohammed is the messenger of God. At the other end of the time scale the European influence on Islamic coin design was shown by a pair of 19th century gold 500 qirsh (5 pounds) from Ottoman Egypt struck in the name of Abd al-aziz, KM 265). One dated AH 1277/5 took 15,600 [$24,336] in EF. A second dated AH1277/8 made 10,800 [$16,848] in aef. Mintages were just 56 of the first coin and 200 of the second. From elsewhere in the Muslim world a delightful Afghan first reign Mahmud Shah Durrani double-mohur, dated AH 1217 [1802 CE], KM 246, had no problems in realizing 9,600 [$14,976] given its gef condition. While an extremely rare Mughal Gemini zodiacal rupee of Jahangir ( ) struck at Kashmir, KM 150.8, took 16,800 [$$26,208] in af. Full catalog details and prices realized can be viewed at or downloaded from the Spink website: com/. A 20 percent buyers premium has been added to the prices cited. Publius Licinius Cornelius Saloninus Valerianus topped the bill at Dix Noonan Webb s early December coin sale in London. It was a gold aureus struck during the brief period when Saloninus was Caesar that proved the star of the show. In the catalog the aureus was described as, extremely rare, undoubtedly one of the finest specimens known. Perhaps this helped prompt the bidding to begin at the pre-sale high estimate of 40,000 [$62,400]. Eventually the coin was secured by an internet buyer for a hammer price of 70,000 [$109,200]. With buyers commission included the total was 84,000 [$131,040]. Among other top-selling lots were several Victorian British proof sets that realized prices well in excess of estimate. An 1887 set comprising a crown, double florin, halfcrown, florin, shilling, sixpence and threepence fetched nearly 10 times its making 11,040 [$17,222]. The two-day sale realized a total of 600,384 [$936,599]. Full catalog details and prices realized may be found at Rare Umayyad Arab-Byzantine gold semissis, c , from North Africa that realized 12,600 [$19,705]. The obverse shows a double bust of Byzantine Emperor Heraclius and his son Heraclius Constantine. The reverse legend translates as, There is no God except God [Allah], He is alone with no partner.

Image courtesy Spink UK. Gold aureus sells for $131,040 at DNW sale The aureus that sold for $131,040 dates from 258. It depicts a bare-headed Saloninus as Caesar on the obverse. He had been appointed Caesar or first in line of the succession in 258 by his father, probably at the instigation of his grandfather, Valerian I, the senior Emperor at the time. In 260 Saloninus was murdered by rebellious troop in Cologne at age 18. Image courtesy DNW. / February

43 From A to Z African country named for Cecil Rhodes BOB REIS Southern Rhodesia. Because I don t want to start on Spain this month. Too much to do, holiday season and all. I ll probably be writing four articles about Spanish coins, maybe six, won t know until I get to it. Southern Rhodesia. The colonial name for the territory that is now the nation of Zimbabwe. Because, for people who are following these articles, knowing that we are proceeding according to the arrangement of countries in the Standard Catalog of World Coins, so they can avoid thinking Hey, why d he skip Southern Rhodesia? Typically, when I write these articles, I start with the geology and paleontology and proceed chronologically until today. I m going to not do that this time, save that for Zimbabwe, when I get to it. Theoretically it will be the last article in this series, but it won t be, because I m going to have to go back and do the 20 or so countries that have come into being since I started this series back in Instead, I m going to write about a strange and amazing man, Cecil Rhodes, in whose honor Southern Rhodesia was, during his lifetime, named. It is a strange story. He was such a big and influential person, but there are some astonishing holes in his story. Or at least I couldn t find anything to put in them during my brief research. The guy put in his will a desire to found a secret society aimed at the incorporation of the British colonies and the United States into a single political entity, which would then partner with Germany to become the preeminent power in the world through peaceful economics, not war. The Wikipedia article states that this was never done, but the Rhodes Scholarship fund was originally open only to students from the United Kingdom, its colonies, the United States of America, and Germany. I went looking through the list of Rhodes Scholars for something conspiratorial. Very few A list famous people, notably Bill Clinton, but quite a few B listers. Rhodes Scholars who made me, personally, go Oh : Dean Rusk (secretary of state for Kennedy and Johnson), Nicholas Katzenbach (Johnson s attorney general), Stansfield Turner (CIA director under Carter), David Souter (Supreme Court justice), Cory Booker in recent years, Susan Rice, Rachel Maddow. A bunch of writers, teachers, scientists. The list seems to tilt liberal in the last few decades. But then there s Bobby Jindal. If that adds up to the workings of a secret society, I don t see it. Anyway, this boy Cecil was born in 1853 in a little English town called Bishop s Stortford. Today it is in part a bedroom community for people who work in London, back then it was probably two days away by wagon or coach, which is to say out there in the country. Father was the vicar. They were not rich. Cecil was sickly, and it was decided when he was 16 to send him to South Africa to live with a brother who had a cotton operation there. It turned out the soil and climate was not good for cotton and they had to find something else to do. That turned out to be speculation in the newly opened diamond fields in Kimberley. (Another version of the story from the Bishop s Stortford website describes a successful cotton Southern Rhodesia 3 pence coins showed native spears that were used by defending natives in the colonial wars they lost against British machine guns. The iconography is similar in concept to our buffalo nickels, both evolved descendants of the ancient Roman CAPTA coins. The shilling carries an image of the famous Zimbabwe bird, later used on the coinage and flag of independent Zimbabwe. operation deliberately closed down as the cotton boom was ending.) It is at this point in the story that the conspiratorial mind might go Hmm. Wikipedia laconically mentions that Cecil, between the ages of 18 and 35, was financed by the Rothschild group of banking firms in buying up all of the small diamond claims in Kimberley. How did they find him, twenty-something whippersnapper working for his older brother? Why did they pick him? Unexplained. I poked around a bit on Google but came up empty. Seems like a significant hole in the story. At age 35 (1888) Rhodes, owner of essentially all of the Kimberley diamond operations, named his diamond operation the De Beer Mining Company, after some people whose claims he had purchased. A year later he partnered with the Diamond Syndicate in London to market the entire output of his holdings. I looked up London Diamond Syndicate and got nothing in the way of a formal organization. Apparently it was a bunch of guys controlling a bunch of business assets who met informally and made decisions of how to do things. There are supposed to be laws about this kind of activity here in the USA these days, but back then, in England, no, there were not. Rhodes, at that moment, controlled the world s diamond supply, and his company continued its dominance for most of a century after. Cecil Rhodes, in the 1890s, might have been the richest man in the world. He engaged in electoral politics in South Africa begin- Reis/Page 44 /February

44 The only crown of Southern Rhodesia celebrated the centennial of the birth of Cecil Rhodes. The edge of the coin bears the legend: OUT OF VISION CAME REALITY. Reis/from Page 43 ning in 1880, when he was elected, age 27, to the Cape Parliament from a predominantly Boer rural district. A decade later he became prime minister of the Cape Colony. Among his innovations were a formalized process for evicting native people from their lands in favor of European style business and industry and the disenfranchisement of Black and Coloured voters in the colony. That kind of activity was considered normal back then, even progressive, when other colonial powers were engaging in wholesale murder in the furtherance of their land acquisitions (history of Congo for example). Rhodes s constant policy aim was to promote the interests of the British Empire and what he considered the Anglo-Saxon race. He pushed for the extension of British colonial rule northward from what is now South Africa and envisioned a British zone in eastern Africa from Cape to Cairo, That did not come to pass because the Portuguese could not be induced to relinquish Mozambique, but his efforts did extend British administration into what was called at the time Zambesia, now the nations of Zimbabwe and Zambia. Commercial activity went hand in hand with politics. Businessman Rhodes would go to a new territory, negotiate a mineral rights treaty with a local ruler, then politician Rhodes would negotiate with the British colonial office for political protection. The protections in hand he could then go to investors for more money for further ventures. Today, here, you kind of have to do one thing or another, though we have the recent example of Berlusconi in Italy playing the business and political sides of the fence at the same time. In 1889 Rhodes got a charter from the British government to form the British South Africa Company to acquire and administer land in what is now Zimbabwe and Zambia and points further north. Treaties were obtained (terms protective of locals often later ignored or abrogated), settlers brought in, wars of suppression fought, In 1895 an armed attempt to overthrow the Transvaal government failed and Rhodes was forced to resign as Prime Minister of Cape Colony. That same year the settlers in the territories of Zambesia adopted the name Rhodesia, in tribute to the guy who made those enterprises possible. In 1898 the land south of the Zambezi river was named Southern Rhodesia. Rhodes had always had heart problems, and he had had more and more trouble from the 1890s. He died of heart failure in In my normal articles I would now describe the political situation in Southern Rhodesia over the decades until it became just plain Rhodesia and then Zimbabwe but I ll put that off for now and just go straight to the coins. Self government began in Coinage began in I asked myself why, went looking for a reason, couldn t find any. Why did Southern Rhodesia get coinage in 1932 but Northern Rhodesia not until 1955 (Rhodesia and Nyasaland, including Southern Rhodesia until that federation broke up in 1964)? What were they using for coinage before 1932? I know they were making their own bank notes (all rare and expensive) but coins? South African I suppose, but I don t know. Southern Rhodesia coins apparently all were made at the Royal Mint in London. I assume it would have been cheaper to get them from the South African mint in Pretoria but that was not done. The coins comprise the entire British denomination set except for the farthing and the gold, and only the 1953 commemorative for the crown. The penny and halfpenny initially in copper-nickel, in bronze after 1942, with center holes, the module does not appear to be shared with any other colony. The series ran from 1932 to Not all denominations were struck in every year but every year had at least one coin. Most coins were struck in proof as well as for circulation. I went to ebay to see what was around. Plenty of coins to buy. Rare dates? The shillings has the highest price in the SCWC ($275 in uncirculated, $900 in BU), a nice uncirculated got $332 in November. The scarcest coin, shillings, got $150 in XF ($280 in SCWC). Proofs on ebay: several 1953 crowns, getting about $100 each. And a 1949 penny, PCGS PR66 RB got $ (SCWC = $125), with a 1932 shilling, proof, raw, Best offer accepted, something under $695. I guess I d have to say that the coinage of Southern Rhodesia is not rare and that the set can be completed. A complete set of proofs looks like a challenge though. There are some proof sets. Google showed me some of 1932, 1953, and 1954 in auctions over the last couple of years. 44 World Coin News / February 2015
