1975 Papua New Guinea 8 Coin Proof Set

This 8 coin 1975 Papua New Guinea Proof Set is a must for the serious collector of fine and valuable coins.  This coin set was minted by The Franklin Mint under authorization of the Government of Papua New Guinea.  This un-circulated proof set of coins comes in original box with protective cover, certificate of authenticity, and information card.  Only 42,340 were minted. 

In 1975 the first coinage of the new nation of Papua New Guinea was issued.

These coins portray Papua New Guinea’s extraordinary wildlife, together with the symbols of the nation’s sovereignty.  The coinage employs a decimal system, with 100 toeas equal to one kina.  The kina is named for an early form of currency in the region, the pearl shell.  The toea takes its name from another shell used in island barter. 

The bird of paradise – the national bird of Papua New Guinea – is portrayed on the kina coin, along with the five stars of the Southern Cross constellation.  This sterling silver 0.925 coin 1.2371 oz. ASW weighs 41.6 grams.

The bird of paradise – the national bird of Papa New Guinea – is portrayed on the ten kina coin, along with the five stars of the Southern Cross constellation. This 0.50 silver coin 0.4436 oz. ASW. 

A New Guinea eagle is depicted on the five kina coin.  At one time the feathers of this bird and the bird of paradise were used as currency.  This coin is copper-nickel.

The one kina coin portrays two crocodiles found only in New Guinea.  The hold in the one kina coins is a carryover from the days when coins were worn on strings or carried on sticks.  The reverse of this coin carries a stylized emblem of the Bank of Papua New Guinea, while the national crest of Papua New Guinea appears on the reverse of all the other coins.  This coin is copper-nickel.

Bennett’s cassowary, a flightless bird indigenous only to Papua New Guinea, is the subject of the twenty toea coin.  The spotted cuscus, a member of the marsupial family, is shown on the ten toea coin.  This coin is copper-nickel.

The five toea coin portrays the rare plate-less turtle.  This coin is copper-nickel.

The ornate butterfly cod, one of the many fascinating fish that inhabit the coral reefs around the new nation, is shown on the two toea coin.  This coin is bronze.

The one toea coin depicts a paradise bird-wing butterfly, a giant species found only in Papua New Guinea.  This coin is bronze.
