The catalog numbers for these coins are found at https://www.ngccoin.com/price-guide/world/search/4/?keywords=PERU||1996||20+Nuevos+Soles|PERU++1996+20+Nuevos+Soles

These coins were stored in the vaults of a defunct mint: “In the 1990's a firm in London named the International Currency Bureau, Ltd, commonly known as ICB, attempted to win contracts to issue coins for various third world nations.  They would design and strike a limited number of pattern coins for each country in hopes of winning a contract.  Though many of their issues were attractive, they were unable to win any major contracts.  After a few years they went bankrupt and were liquidated.”

Last year, Paolo_23 asked, "Hello, they are tests that never circulated. Do you still have them?"

With an embarrassment of "rare", magnificent coins readily available, how does one find the time to collect such misattributed coins?
