Foreign Coins Struck at United States Mints

Set Description
The inspiration for this Signature Set began with a series of three Beginners’ Workshop articles by Eric von Klinger entitled simply “Foreign coins from U.S. Mint,” which appeared in Coin World in July and August of 2004. They sparked my interest, and after further research, I decided to pursue this collection.

The authorization for the striking of coins for foreign countries by the U.S. Mint, came in an act of Congress on January 29, 1874. It provides for coins to be struck for any foreign country, provided that it does not interfere with the production of coins for the United States. With the exception of the Icelandic commemorative in 2000, this series spanned the years of 1875 through 1984.This basic set (i.e. excluding the prolific output of the Franklin Mint) consists of over 1000 different coins from over 40 different nations and colonies. Coins of all sizes, shapes, denominations, and metallic content are included. I think it is safe to say that that this set will never be complete.

I've chosen to include the coins minted by The Mint of the Philippine Islands (aka The Mania Mint) which is often mistakenly identified as "the only U.S. branch mint built outside the continental United States." The Philippine Mint was a U.S. Mint, however it was not a branch of the THE U.S. Mint. When it first began operations in June of 1920, it was was part of the Philippine Department of Finance. The entire Philippine Government at the time was overseen by the U.S. Bureau of Insular Affairs which was part of the U.S. Department of War. The secretary of the Department of War reported directly to the President of the United States. Connecting the dots, The Mint of the Philippine Islands was actually a branch of the U.S. Department of War. From an administrative perspective, the President of the United States was the only person who could direct both THE U.S. Mint and the Mint of the Philippine Islands. There was no other administrative relationship between them.

In addition to coins minted by the U.S. Mints, I have included coins from the private mints in the U.S. that also supplied coins to foreign countries.

This coin was minted by the Philadelphia Mint for circulation in the Belgian Congo during World War II. This coin is one of the most unusual coins of the entire "Foreign Coins minted by the U.S. Mint" series for a variety of reasons.

The Belgian Congo became strategically important because of its natural resources when the Japanese gained control of southeast Asia in World War II. The Belgian Government, while in exile, commissioned the U.S. mint to produce a hexagonal 2 franc coin bearing the walking elephant on the obverse and the bilingual "Bank of Congo" legend on the reverse. This coin was struck in brass, most likely recovered from spent artillery shell casings, with medalic rotation. It also has the distinction of being the only hexagonal coin minted by the U.S. Mint.

Unfortunately, a serious error was made on the reverse when the letter "C" was left out of "BELGISCH." With a mintage of 25,000,000, the error was too great to correct, and the coins were released into circulation. A round 2 franc elephant coin was minted in Pretoria, South Africa in 1946 to replace the 1943 Philadelphia issue. The hexagonal coins were removed from circulation, and even before 1960 became difficult to find.

This 10 centavo piece was minted in zinc at the Philadelphia mint for the Republic of Bolivia in 1942. This particular coin is well preserved for a zinc coin and sports a very appealing dark blue toning. As of this revision, it is the finest to have been graded bye either PCGS or NGC.

In 1949, U.S. mints restruck 30 million more "Junk Dollars" dated the 23rd year of the Republic of China (1934). The mintages for each mint were:

Philidelphia 20,250,000
Denver 6,550,000
San Francisco 3,200,000

No mint marks were placed on the coins and the design, metallic composition, and date are all the same as the original issue, so it is impossible to identify the origin of any specific coin. Odds are less than 1 in 5 that this particular coin was actually minted in the USA. There were two other coin designs minted by the San Francisco mint in 1936, but none were released into circulation and virtually all were melted. The 1934 "Junk Dollar" is effectively the only issue for China minted by US Mints.

Minted by the Philadelphia Mint for circulation in Costa Rica

Until1896, the monetary system of Costa Rica consisted of a mixture of foreign and domestic coinage which was a source of confusion and an impediment to commerce. On August 24, 1896, a monetary reform decree was issued which established a standard national coinage. The Colón (Spanish for Columbus) replaced the peso and was divided into 100 centimos. Weights and composition of the coinage was standardized , and standard denominations were established.

Minted by the U.S. Mint in Philadelphia for circulation in Cuba, this coin is part of a four coin set commemorating the centennial of the birth of José Martí. Born in Havana on January 28,1853, José Martí is considered to be one of the great Hispanic writers, one of the founding fathers of a free Cuba. and a hero to many Cubans.

Committed to the belief that freedom and justice should be the cornerstones of any government, Martí devoted his life to ending colonial rule in his homeland and died a hero in the war for Cuban independence in 1895. His writings continue to play a prominent role in resisting Marxism in Cuba and throughout Central and South America.

View Coin CUB-1952-10C CUBA 10C 1952 REPUBLIC ANNIVERSARY KM-23 NGC MS 65 Cuba - 1952(P) 10 Centavos - KM #23 - Mintage:10,000,000

Ten, twenty, and Forty Centavo coins were struck by the US Mint in Philadelphia, all with the same design by Cuban artist Esteban Valderrama.to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Republic of Cuba.

The obverse is composed of the Cuban flag, a lighthouse, and the Havana skyline with 1952 above 1902 below. The text "REPUBLICA DE CUBA" (Republic of Cuba) at the top, and the denomination "DIEZ CENTAVOS" (ten centavos) below.

The reverse prominently displays a Star, Tree, and Wheel of Industry. "CINCUENTA ANOS DE LIBERTAD Y PROGRESO" (50 Years of Liberty and Progress) around the periphery and the date 1952 below. A revolution led by Carlos Manuel de Cespedes erupted at his sugar mill La Demajaagua, on October 10, 1868. The hostilities finally ended in 1878 when peace was restored by the Pact of Zanjon. Valderrama depicted the ruins of this sugar mill on the common reverse of all three of the 1952 commemorating coins.

There are very few dime sized Commemorative coins and this is the only one minted by the US Mint for a foreign country.

This particular coin is well struck for this design and exhibits a spectacular colorful toning which is absolutely stunning in hand. I'm not a toned coin enthusiast, but this coin could turn me into one.
