About World Coinage:
Collecting "world coinage"-- that is, coins minted outside the United States from our American perspective, can be a fun and rewarding hobby. The acquisition of world coinage allows collectors to extend their collection to periods prior to the historical founding of the United States and to incorporate designs, compositions, and motifs otherwise not seen in U.S. coinage. The vast catalogue of world coinage can allow collectors to focus on a variety of geographic regions or eras depending on their preference or to explore the history of their heritage by pursuing coins of a specific region or nation such as Central America, Ireland, and so on. In addition, while U.S. coinage has a long history of preservation by collectors, there are many examples of interesting and hard-to-find world coins that could sometimes be acquired at lower price points compared to United States issues.

Quality Assurance:
The product offered for sale in this listing has been certified by one or more professional certification services, so you can be confident in the authenticity and stated condition
