Information sought on 'Story of Money' cards

I am looking for information about a series of tri-fold collector cards, called "The Story of Money." The cards were aimed at young children to teach them about the coins of the European nations. Each color card has information about a specific foreign coin, as well as some images about the nation whence it came. While children were encouraged to collect the cards, they were also encouraged to cut out the image of the coin from the card to have it for play. (Thereby ruining the card for those of us, many years later, who wish to collect them. Alas!)
