Beautiful coins. These coins do not get the press they deserve. Anyone who collects Statehood quarters would like these. Similar concept.

Alpaca, also called German silver or new silver, is a NICKEL SILVER with a color and luster similar to silver. In general they have the following average composition: Cu = 55%; Zn = 25%; Ni = 20%.

Very interesting. What is Alpaca silver? Peru has some nice coinage and I have a number of pieces that are among my favorites.
