The Government of the Republic of Molossia is very proud to introduce our first metal coin, the 50 Valora. This new coin is a source of great pride, being the first such item produced by our Government. Previous coins have been plastic and do not truly compare in style and appearance.
The new coin is nickel-plated, with a milled edge and raised relief designs on the obverse and reverse. It is 1.5 Micro-Nortons (38 mm / 1.5 in) in diameter. The obverse shows the Lesser Arms of Molossia, the value (50 Valora) and the National Motto, "Nothing Ventured, Nothing Gained". The reverse commemorates the Treaty of Friendship between Molossia and the Grand Duchy of Westarctica, with images of each nation's flag or arms shown, as well as the treaty date (2005) and the coin date (2006). The Grand Duchy of Westarctica has produced a similar coin, with their arms on the obverse and the same designs on the reverse.
We are quite proud of this latest coinage created by our Government. Hopefully it will become yet another symbol of our nation's progress and prosperity.
