Wow - nice coin.

 

I'd almost say it's Proof.

 

Nice photography. grin.gif

 

leeg - I never replied to your coin.

 

Please except my apologies. Belatedly I have to say:

 

Super coin. thumbsup2.gif

Picked up two new coins for my Pontius Pilate collection. I'm pretty much just specializing in these now. My goal is to have the best collection of all of the rare variants and best examples in general on the market. I'm about 1/2 of the way there now, and should achieve this goal within a year.

Not quite as rare, or nice as the previous, but still an important error on the legend and retrograde date.

Hi TJ,

 

My apologies: It is true that the 1967E has no Proof mintage ( I am checking my book as I type ).

 

However I made a mistake in my previous post:

 

The 1967E says South Africa.

 

The 1967A Says Suid-Africa.

 

My apologies for any confusion.

 

I will now amend the original post.

 

Thanks ZAR thumbsup2.gif May I ask what book you would recommend on South African coinage?

Ask me anything you want TJ.

 

I use South African Coins & Patterns by Brian Hern.

 

Mine is the 2006 edition so it's still pretty recent.

 

It seems to me though that SA coin prices are lower in SA then they are elsewhere in the world. I guess that is obvious why but it is important to note when looking at the prices.

 

If you are interested in ordering the book I can send you Brians Email address. I believe that I took the last Hardcover copy but there are still a few softcover copies left.

Nice coins, guys. I would love to see your finished Pontius Pilate collection, Thing!

 

Here are some of my new additions:

 

Trip to Egypt with the girlfriend:

 

Backward Chronological Order (view last to first)

 

I spent way under budget on that trip, which led to my first NEWP:

which lead to my other NEWPs and some pictures:

Germany-1916-20Heller.jpg

 

as well as re-imaging a couple of my favorites:

 

Mexico-1797-8Rsm2.jpg

 

Spain-Mexico-1793-8R.jpg

 

More definitely to come smile.gif

Thanks, ZAR, I do have a question for you. Would you be kind enough to check on the metallic composition of the 1967 SA Proof coin? I'm assuming it is silver or silver/copper but I would like to know it more precisely.

 

I emailed Brian Hern regarding the book and the 2006 remains the most up to date. He is having more printed but will wait a year or two for another revision. Due to the high shipping costs from SA I have decided to wait to order at this time.

I also picked this up at local pawn shop for $2.00 I think it was good deal huh? Also looks like it has some lamination problems on the Rev. around the area of the 20. Any info on this coin would also be great thanks:

20 Piastres AH1423 (1992) $2.50

10 Piastres AH1413 (1992) $1.25

The Krause is invaluable if you're going to do more than dabble in World coins. Buy a used one. I'm still using a 2001 and it hasn't presented any real problems for me.

Very nice coin & token, taro and yarm. thumbsup2.gif

 

My most recent has problems (the discoloration on the A&V was scratched off), but I'm keeping it until I find a better one.
