Belarus Commemorative Coins on the Rise

TMglobe.gifModern Belarus Commemoratives Very Strong

Heard recently from friend Alexander Shapiro in the Ukraine that the modern commemorative coins of Belarus are moving up in value. Seems that the low mintages and the growing collector base for these coins is driving a strong secondary market.

With moderately more common copper-nickel types I found myself adding $2 to $10 onto the Standard Catalog of World Coin values for many pieces, though not all. The silver commemoratives had more vibrant increases from $10 to $50 depending on the popularity of the event and the restriction of the mintage.

belarus26obv.jpgThe 1/2 ounce silver 10 Roubles types from 1998 and 1999, for instance, hadBelarus26rev.jpg mintages at or below 2,000 pieces and saw increases this past year of about $25 each. KM#26, struck to honor Mikhas Lynkov the Belarus author, is a good example, with a mintage of only 1,200, this proof silver coin went from $100 up to $125.
