Description

Commemorative coins in various metals and a wide varieties of topics were made for sale to collectors starting in the 1970s and continuing until now. These days they are making coins in the shape of little sculptures. Some are noted as being marketed only in certain countries.

Cook Islands is a self-governing country in free association with New Zealand, which handles foreign affairs and defense. Cook Islands nationals hold New Zealand citizenship.

The political arrangements that resulted in the nations of modern Europe began to emerge out of anarchy starting in the 7th century AD or so. Europe, for our purposes stretches from Greenland to somewhere in Russia. Collectors of Europe would likely include Russia. Collectors of Asia, even though about 2/3 of Russia is in Asia, probably not.

By “Modern World Coins” we mean here, generally, the round, flat, shiny metal objects that people have used for money and still do. “Modern,” though, varies by location. There was some other way they were doing their economies, and then they switched over to “modern coins,” then they went toward paper money, now we’re all going toward digital, a future in which kids look at a coin and say “What’s that?” We’ll say: “We used to use those to buy things.” Kids will ask “How?” The main catalog reference is the Standard Catalog of World Coins, to which the KM numbers refer.
