do you have any Iraqi dinar, Pre, second Iraq war. I do if youd like Ill find it and donate a ferw bills for your collection, they are not worth anything yet!Well since the groups have been dropped. I guess I will go the route of the past discussions and just make a blog page.
I have been collecting coins since my dad started me on my 10th birthday, and made it a tradition by starting my kids collection for them.
I have coins from 245 countries in my collection. Some are easy to get and others are harder.
I have Korea and South Korea, but have only seen two North Korean coins for sale.
One night when I could not sleep I looked on E-bay and found a started set of North Korean Coins so I ordered it.
Turns out the seller is in China. From what I have been able to find out they are in the Chinese Ministry of Finance. Needless to say I have been a tad bit worried about the sale.
The arrival time was 1-22-19 to 2-14-19. They have not arrived yet.
I just did a package track and they bounced around in China from one spot (do not remember the name) to Bajing then back to where they started. They cleared customs on the 22nd and are listed as in rout.
I am getting a very good feeling that they are literally on a slow boat from China.
Most of it came about in 1999 when the Euro Came out. That killed the coins because all of the EU countries devalued there coins. Then With all of the Turmoil in South America the countries changed their coins and devalued the old ones. Then in Africa there was so many revolutions and civil wars that the countries changed names and thus devalued the old coins.I suspect that fewer people collect coins than say 50 years ago so there is less demand, thus lowering the value of old coins.
They used to be big cents but inflation made them small cents! Good luck on your purchase.
