All are nice unc and very shiny shiny. :D

The Rwandese coin I already had in my collection, but since I got it very cheap (about $1), I couldn't resist buying it. ;) I have already posted it here.

The other coins are really not very scarce or rare (Lithuanian bimetallics are easy to find) but the one from Botswana is slightly hard to get. €2 of San Marino was also a steal for $3.5!

The Malawian bimetallics are very heavy (around 15 grams each). Kinda strange, considering their low face value!

Keep in mind that you also "have" a couple of German €10 collector coins. They are just not in your hands yet. ;D

I usually buy from E-bay or a couple of other European dealers (non e-aby) whom I've done business with in past. 8)

I do trade with trader friends but haven't been so active recently..
