a NEW HIGH for your collection! Sure to spark ‘reefer madness’ amongst Australian collectors, this astonishing new release represents one of the few ‘scented’ coins in world coinage. Rub the distinctively shaped leaf depicted in fullcolour upon the reverse, and the heady aroma of cannabis is released! A light-hearted addition to any collection, or perhaps an amusing gift, the 2010 100 Francs Cannabis Scented Cu-Ni Silver-plated BU specifically depicts hemp – the extraordinarily useful fibre created from plants of the Cannabis genus. Employed by humans from, at the very least, the Stone Age, hemp is used in clothing, food, construction, paper and medicines, with the Cannabis sativa plant from which it is derived acknowledged as amongst the most productive, most environmentally friendly crops. Not only defined by the amazing rub’n’sniff reverse, this 38.61mm coin is also notable for the limited availability. Indeed, with just 2,500 struck, and demand expected to be high, the mintage is sure to go up in a puff of smoke! With Downies securing only a tiny stash, you must act now!

BENIN 2010 100 FRANCS CANNABIS SCENTED Cu-Ni SILVER-PLATED BU AR290


UNIQUE! New 2010 $1 Roo at Sunset 1/5oz Proof! Mintage jus just s 5,000 – sell-out certain! A startling innovation from the Royal Australian Mint, giving all Australians the chance to enjoy one of the nation’s finest coin designs, we are delighted to unveil the new 2010 $1 Roo at Sunset 1/5oz Silver Proof! Sure to be one of the hottest releases for the year, there seems no doubt that the surprisingly small worldwide mintage of just 5,000 coins will be devastated by demand. The inevitably enormous interest in this unprecedented Australian legal tender type will, of course, be driven by the stunning Kangaroo at Sunset design. First seen in the $25 Roo at Sunset Gold Proof Series in 2007, and subsequently appearing upon 1oz silver coins in 2009 and 2010, the Roo at Sunset motif has captured the imagination of collectors across the globe. A unique appreciation of Australia’s primary native icon, nominated by Krause for the Peoples Choice Coin of the Year award, this spellbinding design has been the power behind some of Australian numismatics’ most highly sought after recent releases. The 2007, 2008 and 2009 $25 Roo at Sunset Gold Proofs all sold out at astonishing speed, and, originally issued at A$365, now catalogue at A$2,000, A$1,500 and A$1,100 respectively. The first ever Roo at Sunset in silver, issued in 2009, was equally successful. The mintages of 4,000 Proof and 7,000 BU coins were simply wiped out by demand, with the Proof leaping from A$99 to over A$150 in value. With the release of the most affordable Roo at Sunset coin, crafted from 1/5oz of .999 silver and measuring 21.69mm in diameter, the success story is set to continue. Beautifully presented in a stylish, innovative, official RAM case, and irresistible value-for-money at an Official Issue Price of just A$50, jus $50, wee highly g y recommend eco e d immediate action.
