THE COINS OF

 

THE FEDERATION OF DAMANHUR

 

 

FEDERAZIONE DAMANHUR

(est. 1977)

 

 

 

1986-2004 - complete coinage listings

 

Founded in 1977, Damanhur is a Federation of Communities and Regions, situated in Valchiusella Valley, in the Alpine foothills of northern Italy. Damanhur has over 800 citizens, of which more than 500 reside in The Valley itself. Damanhur has its own social and political structure, a constitution, a multitude of diverse economic activities including its own currency, schools and a daily newspaper. Since the 1980’s Damanhur has minted several coins and banknotes, in gold, silver, red and white clay, paper and parchment. The use of the Credit is regulated and managed by the Damanhur Association.

The information on types, varieties & mintages is based on my email correspondence with Mr. Erik V. McCrea and Mr. Walter Giuliani and on the information on the old (and now sadly defunct) Damanhur website, which showed many of the coins and the banknotes in their full glory. The new Damanhur site only lists the modern machine struck euro-based coins. My thanks for all the information go to these two gentlemen and to the Federation of Damanhur.

 

If you're looking for Damanhur coins yourself, your best bet would be to start with the links on Erik McCrea's "links" page, underneath on this page. (LINKS)

 

 

Good coin hunting,

 

Chaim Shiboleth

 

 

If you have coins (or scans) other than those on my list, please write me, so that we may make this list complete. If you have additional information on mintages etc., I will be happy to incorporate it in my next list.
