I was lucky enough to pick up the majority of these brass coins.

I am looking for a purpose built casetray to put them in with the title in the lid or top.

there are some on eBay but only with coins in..does anyone know where I can get one ..help
I had a few of these coins, but then managed to buy the complete set in the original box. Then swapped the original loss coins.
Sometimes my local coin shop has the odd box of two, so next time I go into town, I will ask him.

Thanks very much ... I have eighteen of the 24 .....

A coin box with 5 coins is on eBay at seventeen pounds ...I am sure it will go fir a lot more.

Can I be cheeky and ask how much you bought whole set for ..... in case I’m ever down on my luck and have to sell.

I assume the other Marshall sets (round) are the same planes but in just different metal content and size.

The set of dolphins and whales from there look good too. I am going to post a general comment on forum which you probably have views on .

It was on eBay but did not sell, so contacted him to see if he was going to re-list.
We communicated for a short time, and he asked me to make an offer.
I offered him £170.00 including postage.
He said he would re-list it at a specific time on Buy it Now.
I check his profile and as soon as it came up, I bought it.
I thought it was a bargain

Hi Coinman,

i got my album for 16 pounds after buyer defaulted on eBay
Charles,
Well done. Bargain I think.
Now you need to fill it up. Might be less difficult than the box.
Which coins do you still need. I do not have any, but can ask my coin shop owner.

Will list them shortly...

case came with 5 coins so I have sought via forum fir swaps fir missing ones..or else eBay A bargain indeed
I buy these coins as I find them. I think they are great designs.
Almost there box came with only one tray ..need another one to match dimensions..
Do you mean it came without the loose tray? I have coins in the bottom, which is integrated into the box, then the loose tray for the other half of the collection.

Yep that tray was missing..seller confirmed it was just bottom ...bit annoyed but as it was a good deal ..I’ll have to live with it.
What is the external measurements? I may have one or I am visiting my local coin shop tomorrow, and he may have one.

Just measure the internal dimensions of the coin case

Of course obviously ?. Silly me
I went to the coin shop today, and he had only black inserts, so did not get one.
My box measures 245mm x 225mm, internally.
Like you, my box has one tray, but room for another. As there are only 24 coins in the collection, I guess the box was issued with the integrated tray for 12 coins, and the loose tray for the other 12 coins.
By all accounts, these boxes from Westminster Mint are pretty standard, so another tray should be easy to get

I’m looking on eBay but I agree I think it is a Westminster mint case so I might go there ...bet it’s not cheap though..I don’t want to pay more fir the tray than the box and 5 coins.
Faith restored... I contacted local coin shop (Andrews Coins) and asked if he could get tray for me. He popped round and gave me one for nothing.

Respect
Now you need to fill it. That might be a bit harder than the tray, although the coins might cost you money.

I’m double checking ..I’ve got 19 and I know I need 24 ..I don’t think they are all listed on Numista
Just noticed that KM#59, P-51 Mustang, is not included in the Numista website.
Just added it

23 coins are on Numista. It is only the P-51 Mustang that is missing.
In my Krause catalogue, it is shown twice with two different KM#'s. I added it using the first of the listed KM#.

By Jove he’s got it ...

Mustang is the other missing one !

I presume you know there is a series of more modern jets in 1995 I think .
Yes, I know of this set as listed in Krause. 16 according to Krause, but only 3 listed on Numista.
I have never seen any of them.
I would like the earlier set in the $50.00 series. That would be very nice
I have the complete set of $50.00 coins for the 'The Milestones of Space Exploration '. Trouble is, there are 26 coins, but only spaces for 24 in the special box.

I know you all were talking about marshall Islands coins and one of the sellers on ebay that I recently bought from had some of the $50 aircraft coins if anyone is interested in them.

Coinman .. I like these coins too but wow they are expensive ... space looks great as dies whales and dolphins sets ...how come no one swaps them .


im really not bothered about some old coins from Europe in my collection and would prefer these instead but no one wants to swap .

its just you and me then
It is just down to availability. None are available so swapping is impossible.
It is very rare for me to see any of these coins now. Even my local coin shop do not have them, and he said it is a long time since he has had any of them.

I am on holiday, getting some October sunshine.
I have not had any Marshall Islands coins to swap for a very long time.
I have the complete 2018 Alphabet set, but only one dated 2019

Hi Coinman,

i know now you like your plane coins ... I have just bought 2 from Hutt Bay which I assume are Australian coins.

however you may not like them because they’re not from a genuine country? Tokens
Any chance of photos of them and the Marshall Islands coins?

Hello,
I find this discussion a good opportunity to ask a question to the Experts regarding a coin from Marshall Islands. I mean this 50 dollars coin:

https://en.numista.com/catalogue/pieces166095.html

In the Numista catalogue it is described as a circulating commemorative coin, unlike all similar ones. Is this information correct?

Thank you, best regards, Olaf
This description is definitely incorrect.
I have never known a coin made of .999 silver, being a circulation coin.
This needs to be changed.
I will see if I can change it. It will still need validating after I make request.

​Thank you for your reply!
Information request added, but 'a non circulation commemorative ' does not appear in the option list, so requested it be changed to 'non circulation '
Watch this space for an update.
I added a coin from the Marshall Islands over a week ago, and still not validated, so do not hold your breath for a quick answer.

I will keep checking the description, thank you.
I have only 2 'coins' from Hutt River. Hutt River is classed as a Micronation.
50 cents X#4
5 Dollars X#217

If your items are from Hutt Bay, I have none, or even heard of it

I will post actual coins photos when I get them , but I have included some samples of similar kind ...,

mine is Apostle Andrew



Hutt Province is right not bay ..mine are different battle scenes but they are from this series of commemorative tokens. Hutt Province is as you say a micro nation with a fascinating history if you google it.

ps I managed to sell my 5 aeroplane coins fir 27 pounds which paid fir the case and a profit besides. ?
12 1991 hutt river jets series on eBay now ..bit too pricey fir me ??

​ducked out at combined price of 30 quid,, most of which is postage otherwise would have bid more on actual price
Hi Coinman,

Another bargain I think , bought four Isle on Man ww2 Aircraft for 19 pound after previous buyer defaulted which how I got last bargain.

Charles,
Only celebrate, when you receive them. Remember the last transaction.

not sure of KM but think 502 503 and 510 and one other ...hurricane spitfire mustang ..

they are listed on Numista under iom 1995 .. I have listed spitfire on eBay as I already have it
I only have the Spitfire coin, which seems quite common against all of the others in that series.

I agree ... the others are on sale on eBay for about 12 quid each so 19 for four seems a bit of a bargain to me.

Really odd , is the first buyer default which made the seller instantly accept my lower offer (exactly what happened to my Marshall Island buy.)

I am sure , in both cases, that a little patience , would have seen both items sell at a much higher price!

still am I bothered ??
Yes, I think £5 each is a bargain. Rarely have I seen them for sell at less than £10, or that and above is final price, if on an auction.
I hope they sit snuggly into your collection.

They certainly will.. Need a new coin tray ... I’m building up quite a collection of aircraft coins now ..like you ?

i wonder if there other collectors out there that just collect aeroplane coins.

apart from UK coin hunt , I love my crown coins , I’m really not bothered about the other old foreign coins in my collection...does this make me not a genuine coin collector I wonder..

They will be bequested to my grandchildren
As !ong as you collect coins, you are a numismatist.
Just put 38.6 into advanced search and my result was 2024.
If I put 38.61 or 38.62, I got a lower number.
I think 2024 crown sized coin is impressive. Do you agree?

​we’ve discussed this before ....the size of these two countries is tiny , not even countries in their own right
There is a special collectors group for bimetallic coins...perhaps we should start one for Crown Collectors ?
