Colombia, 1980 Simon Bolivar Sesquicentennial Commemorative set of 15,000 (2) and 30,000 pesos proofs (3 coins) in original custom case. Sedwick-81 through 83. Restrepo-p. 291. KM-276, 278 and 279. Three perfect cameo Proofs, issued to commemorate the sesquicentennial of the death of Simon Bolivar in 1830. Per Sedwick: "The mintage of only 500 of each for the smaller coins is lower than the 1000 mintage of the larger coin, a reversal of the normal marketing procedure. Also, only 200 cases were produced, the rest of the coins having been sold unembellished. The demand for this set has always been substantial (many South Americans collect any coin referring to Bolivar) and it is seldom available, even at double the price of its gold content." Total weight of 69.12 grams of .900 gold. Dr. Frank Sedwick collection of Colombian Republic gold coins
