Ceci N'est Pas une Piece de Monnaie

Sorry.  If you're looking for more Heritage I don't have any.  All I have are some beat up old cards from the 80's--------------- the 1880's!

These 8 cards are from the 50 card set, Coins of All Nations (N72) from 1889.  I love the artwork though I would assume there's something here that would offend someone.


Here's one back with the checklist.
And all eight backs.

In case anyone wonders about my title it's a takeoff on this painting by Magritte:


  1. These are absolutely wonderful! I don't know how I never saw these before, but now I must find some.

  2. Well, that was something completely different! and educational, to boot.

  3. Whoa these are KILLER. Awesome, awesome cards, if I ever see any from this set I'm sold. Thanks for posting!

  4. Now, that's some old cardboard! Very nice!

  5. So you live where? And in what room do you store those cards? And when will you not be home so I can come over and "protect" them?

  6. Very cool cards. The Hungary card is my favorite. What the heck is that guy doing behind that coin? Wait. I don't want to know.

  7. I love the tobacco cards of the late 1800s. There is also a 1889 (N85) Duke's stamps of the world set. They are also beautifully illustrated but they are realistic illustrations compared to the caricature illustrations used on the coins cards.
