Great Set

Was this review helpful? Yes/ No

I just started collecting coins from the BVI and this is a great set to include in a collection. I do wish that the coins each came in individual plastic coin holders instead of a plastic sheet that was shrink wrapped. Outside of that, I like box and the COA that come with the coins. I would definitely recommend if you enjoy coins from the Caribbean.

  • Value (low premium over spot)
