Quote from: <k> on February 20, 2019, 06:35:38 PM1] Once a major set has been issued, I don't include the denominations added later, so that excludes Libya and South Sudan.2] Moldova I have already posted. What is new?3] Venezuela has issued two new denominations. In my criteria, I wait for three to be issued, then I call it a major set. So many countries issue only two at a time, that I would never be able to publish them all in time. There is a blog that takes care of the minor issues very well.4] UAE - the reduction in size was completed some years ago. The latest change is to adopt plated metals, but this does not qualify as major.5] This Sri Lanka 2017 set is a one year set. I suppose I must post it, but have the designs now reverted to the pre-2017 series?6] Dominican Republic - I'll have to seek out some images.
Quote from: quaziright on February 20, 2019, 06:39:26 PMThe Sri Lankan set will be the new set going forward. It's simply dated 2017 because that was the year the specimen set that was presented to the PM a couple months ago, was minted in
Quote from: <k> on February 20, 2019, 06:42:24 PMAs a reminder, here are some of the criteria I use for this topic : Examples of changes I do NOT regard as "major".I'm keen to hand this topic over to somebody else. Bimat, Jostein and eurocoin all tried and gave up for various reasons. Any volunteers? It involves looking at the criteria and committing to updating the topic long term with images. It involves a reasonable amount of work, and I am losing interest in 21st century coins.

Quote from: bjcoins on December 11, 2019, 11:12:11 PMThe 'plastic stuff' from Transnistria is actually real money! I just returned from the place, and you will see the plastic money in the check out tills in the shops as well as in the money exchange offices. Not too much of it though, the few tourists that visit Transnistria scoop up the plastic coins and the locals don't really like them anyway as they look Mickey Mouse :-). For the rest the country runs on 'normal' local coinage and bank notes. There are a lot of exchange places around to change your rubles/grivnya/lei/euro/dollar to Transnistrian rubles. And back again... absolutely no one outside of Transnistria will change Transnistrian rubles for you...
