Hi, I've just made a £25 impulse buy! I bought a set of 7 1962 South Africa coins 50cent 20cent 10cent 5cent 2 1/2 cent 1cent and half cent coin in a red box inside the lid is a name and address

A. Bickel, Coins and Medals, 151 Jeppe street Johannesburgh. I was wondering if anyone else has a boxed set like this is it a mint proof set? or a set that has been made up by this Bickel shop? The coins have some tarnish but they look uncirculated.

Thanks

Hi

 

Bickells and Co is well known name here in South Africa. They are a very old Numismatic Dealer and have been putting together coin sets. The set you have is probably mint state. I believe they would hand pick the coin to put in sets so you probably got a very good set there. The 50c and 2.5c have particularly low mintages. At 25 pounds, I think you got a bargain. heres a set that sold recently on bidorbuy.
