Forest City Quintos - The 1/5 Sols of Peru To acquire a complete set by date, featuring the finest quality available.

I try to give a detailed analysis for each date listed. Given the paucity of research and information on Peruvian numismatics, I hope this will be of help to anyone interested in the series.

Why Peruvian 1/5th Sols?

The United States Seated Liberty series was appealing from a young age., especially the 1/2 Dimes and Half Dollars. But the cost of a high end set (or even low-end) can be prohibitive. I owned a One Sol coin in my youth, which cost only bullion value at the time, about $4. I liked this coin, and the design, but considered myself a "US" collector.

Looking at the Peru Seated Liberty denominations:

1/2 Dinero: I love the design of the early (1863, 64) coins. It's probably my favorite design of any of the Seated Liberty series. But the later dates (which comprise most all of the series) aren't as attractive. While some dates are genuinely scarce, there are a few "hoard" coins like the 1897 JF,, 1903, and of course 1916. Often 1/2 Dineros will have severe die polishing marks, which the grading services don't mark down for. Yet, in terms of eye appeal, they can be very distracting.

Dineros: After the 1/5 Sols, this is my favorite series. But they are almost noncollectable. I have a few nice Top Pop's, but other than a few common dates like 1904 or 1916, a high end set of Dineros is a formidable challenge. Even the common 1916 is much more scarce compared to it's smaller counterpart.

1/5th Sols: Fairly easy to collect in circ, a high end uncirculated set is exponentially more difficult. 1/5 Sols, when toned, tend to have the most interesting and beautiful toning of any of the series. Collecting this series has taught me to appreciate uncirculated coins that aren't "blast white".

1/2 Sols: I'm not a big fan of the billon Sols and 1/2 Sols, given their dull look and poor strikes. Which leaves the 1/2 Sol with only with only 8 dates to collect.



Background to 1/5 Sols:

The monetary situation was dire in 1850's Peru. Bolivian debased coins, or "Moneda Feble" made up the bulk of circulating coin in the country, counterfeits of good Peruvian coin were rampant (due to an overly simple design that wore quickly, counterfeits were not much of a challenge to pass), and technical problems plagued the mint in Lima. What .903 fine silver coin was struck by Peru was mostly exported to foreign markets, leaving the country awash in debased Feble. Peru's neighbor to the South, Chile, moved to a Decimal monetary system in 1852, a move that cause the wheels of change to slowly churn in Peru.

For many years the country bickered about how best to amortize the Feble. Various new policies were enacted to clean up the Peruvian money. New minting equipment arrived from the US in 1855 so as produce more uniform coins. The Pasco mint was shuttered in order to focus efforts at uniformity in Lima. Importantly, in 1858, a talented engraver was hired from Great Brittan. Only 25, Robert Britten, a former apprentice and teacher at the Birmingham Mint, brought expertise that was sorely lacking in the engraving department. He was to be the engraver for most of the designs you will see in this set.

The Patterns of 1855 were the first step towards a more uniform coinage. These were struck in the United States, the first foreign coins ever struck here. Included among the new denominations was the 20 Centavos, the precursor of the 1/5 Sol. This coin was to replace the contemporary 2 Reales coin. The patterns never came to circulating fruition.

The law of 1857, though never fully implemented, was the important next step. It was proposed to stop accepting the Feble at nominal value. There was to be a new Decimal coinage of 100 Centisimos to the Peso. The 20 Centavo piece was to be the "Peseta", a term resurrected in 1880.

The coinage struck in semi-accordance with the Law of 1857 are now known as the "Transitionals". First came the 1858 1/2 Real and 50 Centimos, of the old "Peso of Castilla" design. These were struck from hubs produced in the US. These coins brought a premium in the marketplace and were quickly exported making little dent in Peru's monetary crisis. Next came the 50 Centavos of 1858-59. Because silver was on the rise, these were also largely exported.

Early in 1859 the 25 Centavos was released. It is unclear why Peru moved to a coin valued 25/100 rather than 20/100. They coin is very scarce in circulated grades, and rare in Uncirculated. 1/2 and Real coins of 1859 to 1861 were then also struck.

The transitionals were both success and failure. Largely more uniform than the previous circulating coinage, these new designs largely thwarted counterfeiters. However, a great many varieties about with these coins, with varying weights being reported.

World_Coin_Nut Pre-1900 World Coins I started collecting like a lot us have. My grandfather collected coins when I was little and I helped him sort coins. He gave me a Lincoln folder that we filled holes in. It is amazing to me how nice his collection was and he never purchased a coin. Everything came from circulation. Fast forward 40 years and my tastes have evolved.

At this point the bulk of my new acquisitions are world coins. My favorites are large diameter copper/brass/bronze pieces. I think this is due to my love of US large cents. Aside from that I buy anything that speaks to me, you know the voice. Hope you enjoy.

At some point everything will be in only NGC edge view holders but certain details graded coins don't bother me so will stay in the set.

RMK-Collectibles CATS OF THE WORLD I finally had success in the task of listing all the coins alphabetically by country name. Then within the country by date and/or series for that country. This was a huge undertaking for this set, I hope everyone who looks at this set enjoys it. I am trying to aquire as many "cats" depicted on coins from all over the globe. My goal is to have the largest collection of cat images on coins certified by NGC. It does not mean they are all PF70 or MS70. There may be circulated/uncirculated coins that score less. One of the goals of the set is to have them listed alphabetically, which will really be a challenge figuring I anticipate having more than 200 coins. It is my plan to not have duplicates. IE: one example of proof or mint state. Not one of each. I wish to have the greatest representation of different cat images and if I have multiples than my ability to have that representation will be restricted financially. 2/14/2017 7/3/2018 530236

Thalermaniac PASSION OF LUDWIG Ludwig I ruled Bavaria from his coronation in 1825 until 1848, when he abdicated his throne in favor of his son, Maximilian. It is my opinion that he was one of the most interesting personae in German history. As a very intelligent and educated man, he assumed his role as a King with full responsibility and, arguably, great passion. He had a great many passions; he loved change, and imposing it, he loved women, art, science, Greece, architecture etc. – but his dearest passion of all was coins, of course! He adored seeing new coins, especially those displaying his portrait and great achievements as the King. He oversaw the production of many commemorative coins: more than any other Germanic ruler. Within this set I would like to tell you the flamboyant story of the great ruler, Ludwig I of Bayern, son of Maximilian I Joseph, Duke of Franconia, Duke of Swabia, Count Palatine of the Rhine, etc.
Let the journey begin!

TMS Coins 1. LEGAL TENDER COINS IN CYPRUS UNDER BRITISH ADMINISTRATION, 1879-1959 The modern coins of Cyprus included only silver, copper and copper-nickel coins. As the sovereign was a gold coin and legal tender in Cyprus under British Administration, the goal was to bring together gold, silver, copper and copper-nickel coins and create a Custom Set containing examples of circulating coins during the period 1879-1959. 11/14/2017 6/10/2018 225175

TMS Coins 4. GREAT BRITAIN, GOLD HALF-SOVEREIGNS 1817-2017, COMPLETE CIRCULATION ISSUES. My main collecting interest has been on the modern coinage of Cyprus 1879-1949.
During this period Cyprus was under British Administration and the "piastre coinage" made its appearance in 1879. The copper piastre became the unit of currency and was fixed at the rate of 180 to the British gold sovereign. The gold sovereign became the standard measure of value and remained the coin of unlimited legal tender throughout the period from 1878-1960. During the reign of Queen Victoria, the gold half-sovereign was also legal tender, demonetized though from the 1st May 1901. Due to this relation, after completion of the "Cyprus Piastre Coinage Collection", the collection of sovereigns and half-sovereigns became a strong challenge. So, nine years ago I started to build up this collection of gold half-sovereigns with the goal to obtain high grade examples for every year since their first issue in 1817, buying always the best that could be afforded. As the quality of the individual coins determines the strength and value of a collection, constant emphasis was given on quality and condition rarity. For some rarer and scarcer pieces though I had to compromise condition in order to fill the empty slot, hoping to upgrade as opportunity permits. However there are a few ultra rarities in these series: 1836 (R6), 1845 (R4), 1862 (R6), 1879 (R4); not a single example of these appeared in a decent condition for many years!
It is true that in general half-sovereigns, especially those of the 19th Century, have become a great deal more difficult to find in uncirculated condition, even more difficult than finding uncirculated gold sovereigns. Despite this, it is really a challenge to hunt, to recognize opportunities and be prepared to strike when a piece comes up in order to fill up the empty slots with high grade coins or upgrade certain dates. "There is no substitution for quality".
Although the collection is still a work in progress, contains examples from all the Reigns. All coins are NGC-certified and many of them are "Top Pop" or single finest graded, quite a few conditionally rare.
Actually 2017 is more exciting because is the 200th anniversary of the "modern" half-sovereign which was first struck in 1817. During this year I managed to fill up some empty slots with new entries and make a few upgrades, so the collection reached an 81% completion. I also added, as a "guest star", a 1937 PF 66 Ultra Cameo half-sovereign of King George VI. During his reign only proof half-sovereigns were struck by the Royal Mint as part of the four coin Coronation Proof Set, with a mintage of only 5001.
