Lucky Japan 5 Yen
$0.45 each
$19 for 50
The Japanese 5 yen coin is the longest-running holed coin of the last 100 years. It was first issued in 1959, replacing the previous 5-yen coin that did not have a hole in its center, and is still used today. These coins are made from a mixture of zinc and copper, which give them a lovely golden color.

In Japan, 5 yen coins are considered good-luck charms because saying "5 yen" in Japanese (go en) has the same pronunciation as a common expression for good luck ("good fortune" or "good spirit"). The hole in the center makes them perfect for hanging from a neckace or bracelet.

These coins are circulated and come in a variety of dates and conditions.

Coins With Holes Set
$8
In the last 100 years, more than 30 different countries have issued circulating coins with holes in them (sometimes called holed coins). The hole is used to help make the coins look and feel different than other coins, making it easier to identify the coin by touch.

This set of 10 coins is a representative selection of modern holed coins, including African, Asian, Middle Eastern, and European coins with holes. Each set contains the same 10 coins, one each from Belgium, East Africa, Fiji, France, Hungary, Laos, Lebanon, Pakistan, the Philippines, and Spain. Our Japan 5-yen holed coin is a great addition to this set. Each set contains the same 10 coins.

Coins with holes are almost as difficult to find as square coins, so this set is a great way to add many to a world coin collection at once.

Square Coins Set
$6
Square coins are one of the most interesting alternative shapes to be used by modern circulating foreign coins. They are also one of the hardest to find, since that shape is not used very often. Square coins add a new level of "wow" to any foreign coin collection. You can read more about countries that have used square coins at our blog.

We have put together sets of 8 different square foreign coins from 8 different countries - Bangladesh, the East Caribbean States, India, Myanmar, Pakistan, Philippines, Sri Lanka, and Suriname. All the coins except for Myanmar are in uncirculated condition. Each set contains the same 8 coins.

World Coin Circulated Pound Pack
$9.95
Circulated coins are coins that people have actually used in their home country. These are the coins that you'd get as change at the grocery store - they've been touched, they've been put in vending machines, they may be dirty or worn or they may look brand new. Buying bulk foreign coins like this is usually the least expensive way to acquire coins for a collection.

In addition to collecting them, foreign coins can make fun party favors, classroom prizes, dentist office awards, event giveaways, decorations, treasure hunt treasure, and more. Let us know about the creative uses you've found for foreign coins.

You get over one pound of mixed, random foreign coins, containing between 75 and 110 individual coins. (Actual number varies due to differences in size and weight of individual world coins.) This pack will contain duplicate coins and may contain a few non-coins (such as tokens or buttons - that is why we include more than 1 pound of coins).

Bi-Metallic World Coin Set
$12
Modern bi-metallic coins were first issued in 1982 in Italy, and have since become a common sight in much of the world. Even Canada and Mexico use the two-toned coins. The use of 2 colors gives higher-denomination coins a distinctive look, a glamour like they were dressing up for a fancy dinner party. Bi-metallics make an elegant addition to a world coin collection.

This set features 6 different bi-metallic coins (some with a yellow center ring and some with a yellow outer ring) from Cambodia, Ecuador, Finland, France, Portugal, and Sri Lanka. The coins from Cambodia, Ecuador, Finland, and Sri Lanka are in uncirculated condition. Each set contains the same 6 coins.

You can also add individual bi-metallic coins to your order.

Coins may be small and may be a choking hazard for children aged 3 or younger.

  Bi-metallic coins use 2 differently-colored metals to achieve a grand look that makes a country's high-denomination coins seem almost like treasure. The coins listed here pair well with our Bi-Metallic World Coin Set.
