Just wondering if there is anyone else on the forum who is interested in collecting FAO issue coins? I've been working on my collection for a few years now.

Not me. I do have some in my collection but never even considered who designs them etc. Good luck. I suspect you may end up with a fairly large collection!

I have some of the albums, but I have not started filling them up. Maybe someday!

I collect them as part of my world type coin collection. However, I don't make any special effort to collect them all.

There's an excellent book that catalogs the entire collection - "FAO Coins International Catalog" - for sale on ebay directly from the author. MUCH better than any data list I've found as the book includes good quality photos of every coin, in addition to all of the basic data you'd want and expect.

It's large and heavy, printed on nice glossy paper, so the shipping is not cheap. I balked when I first saw the shipping price, but since there is no comparable alternative, I bought it. When the box arrived I could see that he actually paid what he charged, so the shipping charge was totally legit.

A worthwhile investment if you're looking to pursue the FAO series.

I should add that quite a few of the official FAO coins are not identified as such on Numista. Even Krause and the NGC database has missed a few.

There certainly are FAO coin collectors because I sold a complete set for a very good price at a coin show.
I came across it and saw the potential as I picked it up from one person at one show and paid their price.
I then took it to another show and doubled my money.
