Proof/Mint Sets

Recommended Posts

I don't collect proof or mint sets although i am tempted by two areas alone.

 

British proof sets from 1971-1984 and Vatican euro mint sets 2002-Present.

 

Question is when did the Vatican start issuing these sets? I figure 2002? But i know some areas were issuing euros in 1999.

You're asking about straight Vatican Euro sets right, not pre-Euro?

Yes, the first Vatican euro set is dated 2002. Mintage in 2002 and 2003 was even lower than afterwards: First 65,000 (+ 9,000 proof), then 85,000 + 16,000. The Vacant See set has a mintage of 60,000.

I like low mintage figures. What's going rate on them? A couple of hundred i expect. I've got a 2005 set.

Not quite, I'm afraid. According to this page http://www.silvas.de/Vatikan.htm we are at about €150 right now. (Results from one week only.) But I don't really follow the prices since I just want the MC/SM/VA sets for my collection. If I get them, fine - if not, oh well. :ninja:

:ninja: Ok, now I feel like a complete idiot.  Did anyone else notice something funny with that 1 Rappen?  That's it.  I'm giving up Ebay for awhile.

 

 

Strange -- did you ask the seller.

Beautiful sets Tiffi. You're some shopper. When you set your mind to something -- wham! It happens.

Those Yugoslavian coins are nice.

 

 

The irony of that set is that the card says "Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia", yet the coins say "Federal Republic of Yugoslavia". They didn't take the name of SFRY until 1963. I have always assumed that they were made sometime in the late 1960's. There is a similar set for the 1963 (first SFRY) issues, and for the 1965 (monetary reform) issues, all with the same cards, just different dates.

Here's better pics of the Latvian set. Does anyone know why they would have a "1992" set yet have a 1999 2 Lats? Obviously it cannot be a true 1992 set. I don't really care but I was just wondering.

Only from 2 countries: Finland and US.

I only have proof sets from three countries: the US, Canada, and Monaco. Of course, I have a bunch of proof individual issues as well.

Because that is neither a "1992" nor a "1999" set. :ninja: Latvia does not issue the pieces/sets every year, so such mixed sets are normal. Maybe that is even better than making certain year/MM combinations for collectors only, which is what many euro countries do ...

 

For further info about the Latvian coin, and when and where they are made, look here:

(Select the denomination from the drop-down menu for specific information.) Kind of funny how similar the santim coins and the German pfennig pieces are ...

Estonia has done something similar. Scroll down on the Bank of Estonia's page and you will see that they have done it with two sets: 1999 and 2004.

Something like this obverse? :ninja:

Indeed. ;) And I am not quite sure who was "inspired" by whom here ...

Anyone collect mint/proof sets from around the world?  I am trying for a collection from specific years, 1974 (birth) and 1992 (graduation).  I may expand that if I ever... 1.  Get married or 2.  Have a child or multiple children.   :ninja:

 

 

How'd I miss this? I guess I don't spend enough time in the World forum. :lol:

 

Anyway. I do indeed collect proof and mint sets from a specific year...1966. It is one of my favorite collections. I only collect the coins, though. the packaging gets chucked. I have found quite a bit of it from that era to be not too healthy for the coins. PVC, Felt that seems to not be good storage material, etc. So I decided to just transfer them all to 2x2's.
