When we think of any on the long list of famous collectors and the coins they've had in their possession we instantly think of those such as the 1804 dollar, 1894s Barber dime, 1913 Liberty nickel or any number of rarities struck by the United States Mint. However, if we look further into these individuals it becomes no stretch of imagination that they collected coinage from various countries other than just the United States. So the subject of this weeks blog is rare world coinage. Examples which are on par with the famous U.S. issues, struck under similar circumstances and holding equal history. Enjoy!

The subject of this week's blog looks at commemoratives struck in between. Enjoy!
