Silver Proof Coin Collection
In 1974 - 1975 the Royal Mint, in conjunction with the WWF and IUCNNR (World Wildlife Fund, and the International Union for Conservation of Nature and Natural Resources), issued an 12 piece collection of silver proof coins, two each from from six different countries. We buy and sell these and other coins.
We have seen a source which states:

That 24 countries issued a collection of 48 silver proof coins.
The countries issuing coins were: Afghanistan, Botswana, Colombia, Costa Rica, Ethiopia, Fiji, Falkland Islands, Gambia, Indonesia, Jordan, Malawi, Malaysia, Mauritius, Mongolia, Nepal, Oman, Pakistan, Seychelles, Sudan, Tanzania, Thailand, Venezuela, Zaire and Zambia.
