Hi there!

My daughter collects coins and always asks me to bring new ones from all my trips.

If there's anybody interested in collecting coins I'll bring and few handfuls of Ukrainian ones in exchange for yours.

Cheers,
Oleg

Croatian coins Feb 27, 2009

Hi Oleg!

I don't collect coins, but I will be glad to give you a set of Croatian coins.

We have in fact 9 different coins: 1 kuna, 2 kuna and 5 kuna coins, and then the Croatian cents: 1 lipa, 2 lipa, 5 lipa, 10 lipa, 20 lipa and 50 lipa coins.

I hope this will make her happy

TOPIC STARTER
Thanks for the info Kristina! Feb 27, 2009

I'm not sure this thread is followed by a great number of potential participants of the Macedonia conference, but anyway...

The 'kuna' and 'lipa' are funny but quite Slavic-sounding names!

Atanas, is there any chance to find coins that were in circulation before the Communist era?

Cheers,
Oleg

Could be Feb 28, 2009

Hi Oleg,

Maybe I could find some "socialist" coins, but not a complete set I am afraid. I will see what I can do.

Macedonian coins Mar 2, 2009

Hi Oleg,

great idea! I collect coins and it would be great to have Ukrainian ones now in my collection....I will give you some Macedonian ones and try to find some older coins from ex-Yugoslavia if someone is interested.

coins and history Mar 13, 2009

I used to be an avid coin collector in my teens, but that was in the last century
I'm ready to bring along some current HU coins if anyone is interested.

The first time I heard about Ohrid was also connected to this passion. When I was in Bulgaria in 1981, I found a beautiful and large coin of 2 Leva. (And valuable as well: this amount bought me eight ice creams
On the flip side I found the inscription "Kliment Ohridski". Then I looked at the map and I noticed that Ohrid was in Yugoslavia. This seemingly unresolvable conflict made me more interested in history.

Now I know much more about the turbulent history of this region, and actually I would be happy to see Ohrid for the first time.

In the past 10 years I developed a niche collecting hobby. Now I'm interested in maps and atlases, and especially historical atlases. If any of you can find a good quality locally produced historical atlas in your respective countries, I'd be all too happy to buy them if you bring them to Ohrid.

Map inscriptions and legends may be in your local language, no need to search for an English one. If there are two separate volumes for international and national history, I would prefer only the national volume. If there's a separate version for schools and a separate one for "adults", I would prefer the more serious (i.e. more detailed) one.

Thanks a million

Csaba

Collection Jun 29, 2009

Dear Oleg,

I have just prepared a nice coin's collection for your daughter, about 40 coins from different countries, from my father's collection, and I have just noticed that he doesn't have Ukrainian coins, he will be very happy to have some...

There are German, Macedonian, Yugoslavian, Israeli, Austrian, Greek, Bulgarian, English and I even think one is Chinese, and some of them are from 1950, 1974, different years.

I'll be happy to give them to you.

see you in Ohrid,
Gabriela
