Recently I posted here proudly stating that I had completed a 4 coin set from Kazakhstan, lovely large silver pieces with historic musical instruments. I soon after discovered that I was in error and there was a 5th coin to the set. Well, after considerable hunting and very luckily hooking up with a coin seller in Kazakhstan, I received the elusive 5th coin. So now, I can correctly post the complete set from 2001-2005. Without doubt, this is among my favorite sub sub sub sets...or whatever...

In my next life, I would like to attempt the complete 500 tenge series. I think the designs are quite exceptional for the most part. Also, there are several lesser Kazakhstan music coins and 1 additional 500 tenge coin that is not primarlly dedicated to a cultural musical instruments. I have these pieces, but the set of 5 coins below in my mind is a true favorite series. 




2001-"Stringed Instrument", 2002-"Music Instruments", 2003-"Cultural Artifacts", 2004-Zhetigen, 2005-Adyrna
   Warm greetings from Alan in Massachusetts

Hello, Miner and Bimat.

Thanks for the posts!!! The France and San Marino pieces I have already, though I must admit that the San Marino piece proved to be quite a challenge. The Swiss and Japanese pieces I have never seen so the will be added to my "want list"...and thanks! In the past couple of months, I have gotten a bit away from collecting...and spending time with all the terrific collectors here. I've been just too busy...but I hope soon to be "back online" soon and back to collecting.

Aditya. Thanks for posting the Latvia piece. You saved me some time as my example arrived about a week ago. I haven't even had time to incorporate it into my albums. I might make a tri[p to the bank on Friday.

Greetings everyone, from Alan in the U.S.A.

Alan,

The Japanese coin comes in a number of versions:

  • Bimetallic ¥500 (raw unc);
  • Bimetallic ¥500 (BU);
  • Bimetallic ¥500 (Proof);
  • Bimetallic ¥500 (BU) with ¥80 stamps;
  • 1Oz  colored silver proof ¥1000 (Simple version);
  • 1Oz  colored silver proof ¥1000 with ¥80 stamps (Deluxe version).

It will indeed be a (financial ;)) challenge to get all of these..

Aditya

Ever wanted to own a Stradivari? Here is your chance. ;D  Niue issues the "first coin ever with varnished handmade wood inlay". $1, Ag999 (1oz), commemorating the 170th anniversary of Antonio Stradivari's birth. Mintage 999, individually numbered on the edge.

WOW, Christian.

That's a beauty!!! I'm going to go look for one...though I haven't been hunting for coins much of late. This one is quite the exception. The question  is, "is it affordable"?

I guess I'll find out.

MANY thanks. Alan in Massachusetts

Different people would answer that question differently. ;) But I actually have no idea how much this piece will be; noticed it in the World Money Fair catalog (PDF, 20 MB), in an "Art Mint" ad. I have not seen the coin at that company's website, but they do have a mysterious looking "Coming soon" box there ...

Next year Germany starts a new series of €50 gold coins featuring musical instruments. The first piece will have a double bass, see here.
