I've always found the round foil coin stamps of Fujeira, Bhutan, Burundi, Tonga, Jordan, Sierra Leone, Qatar, Oman, and Ajman (did I miss any countries?) from the 1960s and 1970s to be visually neat items. They're generally not terribly valuable, although complete mint sets are always saleable.

What you rarely see though, are new old stock still in original round box packaging, which is why I found this lot interesting. Some of the original boxes are empty, some are partials, and some are complete.

Not something you see every day...

Cool Revenuecollector, I've never seen them in the "rolls" before like that.

I agree, very cool. They had to store and transport them somehow. I have a major (to me) Tonga collection. Not so much these other similar ones. Careful not to dent them!

Rev;
Very nice, were these collected all at once?, or over several lots vrs time?
First time to see the containers, a real treat to see, have several but never thought about how they were handled and packaged.
A big fan of your posts, thanks

It's a single lot that I acquired. I had not seen any containers prior to this, although admittedly I haven't been searching heavily for them to any great extent, as the foil coins are a passing interest rather than a major focus. IMO, scarce collateral no matter how obscure is always of interest, assuming it doesn't break the bank to acquire.

Then again, I tend to gravitate to things I've not seen before, even when they are outside my areas of focus. I like the obscure. #philatelichoarder

Definitely a very cool find, Revenue. Never thought about how these were conveyed from the printers to distributors. I believe Sharjah had at least 1 set of metallic foil stamps, though possibly not Scott-listed.
