I have found that attempting to put a complete graded set of the ZAR series in both Proof & Mint State together is both challenging and most rewarding.
Due to the scarcity of certain of these coins, the search is often extensive and most exciting.
The "difficult" coins that come to mind are :
- The proof Pond
- The proof Half Pond
- The proof Penny
- Mint State 1895 Pond, Two shillings and Shilling
- Mint State 1896 Shilling
Virtually the entire 1893 date set with the exception of the Sixpence, Tickey and Penny.
The other rarities -
- The Burgers Ponde
- Veld ponde (with & without the slash)
- The 1898 Overstamp 99 Pond
- The Sammy Marks Tickey
This past time is absorbing and great fun - It is like being on a treasure hunt and provides me with a constant source of adventure.
Collecting this series is a great passion of mine and sharing this with likeminded persons is my mission and therefore the purpose of this website.
