2012 Namibia 10 Cents

I got this at the same time as the previous coin. This one is not listed in all coin sites but it should not be rare. Reports about coin productions from Namibia is not always available. 

There seems to be some minor design changes to both sides. I cannot confirm this since the last coin was so faded. Still the headband under the eagle looks different and the plants under the shield looks longer.

Here's the stats for this coin...
Type/Country: 10 Cents / Namibia
Year: 2012
Mintage: Unknown.
Metal: Nickel Plated Steel
Value: $0.35 in XF, $1.00 in UNC

2009 Namibia 10 Cents

It has been years since I last found a coin from Namibia. The fact is all African coins are difficult to find in my change for various reason but that does not mean they are rare.

On the front of the coin is the national arms of the Republic of Namibia. It has an African fish eagle on top of a traditional head band with a six diamond pattern. The shield has a sun and band. The two supporters are native oryx. All on top of a sand dune.

On the reverse is a sun design and a native camelthorn tree. The 10 c denomination is 10 cents. Currently 1 Namibian dollar is about 8 cents so this coin is worth less than 1 cent in currency exchange.

Mintage figures are not known and production of coins has not been steady. They last made a ten cent coin in 2002.

Here's the stats for this coin...
Type/Country: 10 Cents / Namibia
Year: 2009
Mintage: Unknown.
Metal: Nickel Plated Steel
Value: $0.35 in XF, $1.00 in UNC

2006 $1 Star Note, G-*

It has been a while since I last posted a dollar star note, almost a year since the last find. Star notes are replacement notes and are more difficult to com by. That said This one is common for collectors.

Also it is kind of yucky. Not the collecting term but it is very wrinkled, folded, faded, stained, and not crisp. It loses most if not l=all of its extra value but at least it is a star note.

Here's the stats for this bill...
Type/Federal Bank: $1 Star Note - Fort Worth / Chicago
Year: 2006
Printings: 3,200,000
Printed: October 2010
Run: 2nd of 3 from G03200001* - G06400000*
Value: $1.25 in Good

This quarter honors the Everglades which is a huge watery national park that is currently losing its water. The thick luscious wetlands that was the Everglades is slowing shrinking and burning away. Projects to save it are currently underway. 

Instead of using rare Floridian animals they chose the more common roseate spoonbill and anhinga birds. The mix of water and plants are also seen in the background.
