Welcome and thanks for visiting!
I am offering the scarce 1 leu 1992 monetary pattern silver AU coin strike like PROOF Coin # 123.
A silver pattern of 1 leu 1992 is presented. The obverse is significantly different from the obverse of the 1 leu coin which entered circulation in 1993.
This pattern is usually put in relation with the name of Professor Anghel Rugină, renowned American economist of Romanian origin, honorary member of the Romanian Academy since 1990. Professor Rugină proposed, immediately after the Romanian revolution, besides some economic measures, a monetary reform introducing precious metal coins into circulation (thus having intrinsic value). This reform was intended to assure a stable economy and the end of the post-revolution economic crisis.
Obverse: Denomination "1 LEU", ROMANIA, wheat ears.
Reverse: ROMANIA , Coat of Arms. Along the rim (at right) lies CD standing for Constantin Dumitrescu, the engraver's name.
Size: The probe is 32mm diameter.
Weight: 15.5 grams.
Flat edge coin.
Essays of coins can be found that were never released into circulation, with designs differing totally from the actual issues and also essays struck with the official dies, but in other metals.
Condition: Almost Uncirculated (AU) like PROOF, see photos.
As a coin collector I DO NOT clean any of my coins to preserve the original patina, if you wish to clean the coin/s I will leave it up to you.
I’m willing to drill a hole in the coin with NO extra cost if you needed for Jewelry Making.
The coin you see in the photo is the coin you get.
