Fiji mint sets
« on: October 10, 2015, 01:38:02 AM »
I've been trying to find what years Fiji has produced mint sets. I've seen 1969, 1976, 1978, 1980, 1983 and 1984. Does anyone know of any other years?

A six-coin mint set was produced in 1990.

Ah thanks - should have thought of Krause: it mentions mint sets dated 1969, 1976, 1978, 1983, 1984 and 1990 and proof sets dated 1969, 1976, 1978, 1980, 1982 and 1983 (the 1993 it mentions are $10 coins I think - there don't appear to be any 1993-dated circulating coins).

One set is not mentioned in Krause.  A Fijian 1992 six-coin uncirculated set produced by the Royal Canadian Mint.  The particular set is nearly proof-like.  Only 5000 sets were assembled.

Of special note is the 1976 all-sterling silver proof set with the big Crown-sized dollar made by the Royal Australian Mint.

Ah thanks - where did you find out about it?

One of the 1992 Fijian sets was available from an eBay dealer.  The set's certificate of authenticity comes from the Royal Canadian Mint, indicating that 5000 sets were struck.  It is a very nice set!

Thanks - I'll have to keep my eyes out for one. Unfortunately these things aren't always well documented.
