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.

It has been habitual, on the collecting side of numismatics, for “Africa” to exclude the Mediterranean coastal states, which are typically lumped in with the other Arab states in the category “Middle East.” Generally speaking, there was a colonial period and an independent period.

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.
