Bulk World Coins
We purchase these coins directly from sources in Europe, and the Americas, hundreds of pounds at a time. They come from companies that have contracts to count the daily receipts from organizations that get a lot of coins, such as mass transit systems, vending machine operations, theme parks, etc. As the coins are counted, anything that is not a "legitimate" legal tender coin in that country is rejected and becomes part of the lots we buy. They are shipped to us in bags that range in weight from small lots to bags of 25 kilos (55 pounds). These coins are not searched by us in any way, although we do inspect random lots from time to time to insure that they contain a good variety. We then weigh out the appropriate amounts as orders come in. Any orders that are over $75 in value are eligible for our FREE DOMESTIC SHIPPING offer. We sell lots of 1, 3, 5, 10 and 25 pounds and try to mix the coins from all the different sources so that you get an even mix that is representative of the coins we have at the time you order. You will receive approximately 90 to 110 coins in every pound you purchase. Because of the way these coins are collected, you may also find occasional telephone or mass transit system tokens, religious medals, etc. One of our customers actually found a Civil War token while searching through his order, however I doubt that this would ever happen again. The comments we have received from our customers on this item have been very positive and we encourage you to try a pound or more.
