Coined For Money: Round-Up Jan. 21-27, 2013

The world is issuing lots of stuff and these are the most interesting items I found this week.

Dr. Who is turning 50 and the New Zealand mint has issued a limited amount of silver legal Island of Niue $2 dollar coins. They are 1 ounce 0.999 fine silver coin limited to 10,000 so nerds be aware. This is one coin that will likely outpace numismatic value due to Doctor Whovians collector value.

The bank of Zambia is successfully withdrawing their old currency for the new one which is just a rebased form of an older currency. Confused well no one in Zambia is because no cases of fraud occurred and tellers are reporting a 50% conversion headed to 90% soon. Not all is well as people are complaining that the new coins are too small and feel less "real".

Still showing off those millennium quarters from Canada here at Coined For Money.
