Title: Couple of Interesting Algerian 50 Dinar Commemorative Coins
Post by: Bimat on June 09, 2013, 08:26:24 AM
Here are two interesting Algerian 50 Dinar commemorative coins I received couple of weeks back. My experience is that Algerian commemorative coins are hard to find compared to other Central Asian countries so pleased with new acquisitions. :)

Technical details of both the coins:

50 Dinar, Bimetallic, 28.5 mm, 9.3 g, Mintage unknown.

...And here's second one:

50 Dinars (2004): 50th Anniversary of Liberation, KM# 138. Reverse is interesting; it shows Stylized flag and two Moudjahid (revolutionaries)!

Uhm, not sure what they teach in geography classes these days, but pretty sure Algeria is in North Africa. Just thought I'd point that out given you do have some very nice Algerian coins. Other than that, cool technical specifications
