NON-CIRCULATING LEGAL TENDER COINS WITH MULTIPART DESIGNS

Regarding the Royal Mint coin designs, George Cuhaj of
Krause Publications writes: "What they should have explained
is that the multi-part design was a first among CIRCULATING
COINS. The examples on the Chinese pieces cited, are all
collector oriented commemoratives, or as they used to say,
non-circulating legal tender (NCLT) coins."

[Well, the Royal Mint wasn't quite so boastful. Their press
release said only that "This is the first time that a single
design has been used across a range of United Kingdom coins."
It was The Independent that said "The coins ... are believed
to be the first in the world designed to form a unified
picture when put together.'  -Editor]

Yossi Dotan described the multipart designs on Chinese coins.
George continues: "Thanks to Yossi for mentioning the
renumbering of the POC Section, a nice re-enforcement. A PDF
of the cross reference of old and new, and soon-to-be listed
issues is available for the asking (from me, at
george.cuhaj@fwpubs.com).

"As to other China multi-part items, there is a six 20 yuan
piece set of Ancient Chinese Paintings, from 1998 (same
obverse) multi part reverse. The four silver and four gold
(same design) of the Guilin Scenery set of 50 and 20 yuan
of 1998 (individual obverses, multi-part reverse)."
