Cambodia ( Kambuchea) 1974, 50,000 Riels, KM#64,
.11941 oz, .900 Fine Gold, neat design showing Cambodian
Dancers on Obverse.
Government of Cambodia was toppled just a year later,
and the year the US had exited Vietnam. Judging by
the scarcity of appearances these coins make we think
the already low mintage of 3250 seems a bit high.
This is a beautiful PROOF 1974 Cambodia 50,000 Riels
GOLD coin. This is quite scarce with a mintage that
is claimed to be (approx 3,250 in the minting) but
judging by appearances for sale, seems like that number
can't be right. This gold proof coin is encapsulated
by Numismatic Guarantee Corp but also included is
the original issued hinged presentation box and the
official certificate of authenticity. The inside and
outside of the box is stamped with "Cambodge"
and "Republique Khmere". The COA appears
to be in French and has a proof number indicating
which one this coin struck was included here. (See
the coin images )
One side of the coin shows three female Khmer dancers
with the French legend REPUBLIQUE KHMERE. The reverse
has the arms of the Khmer Republic with the Cambodian
legend for the country's name at the top, the denomination
50.000 RIELS in Arabic and Cambodian numerals. The
date in Khmer and Arabic characters is at the bottom.
One of our favorite world gold coins and so reasonable.
