Observations about the Mint set issued by Transnistria with Coins of Year 2005
The set comprises the circulation coins of 5, 10, 25 and 50 kopecks from year 2005. The text accompanying the coins contains also errors. So, it is shown that in 2002 the pieces of 25 and 50 kopecks were first introduced. In reality, the 50 kopecks coin has appeared in 2000, not in 2002. Pieces of 25 and 50 kopecks are declared bimetalic, whereas they are made out of copper and zinc alloy (pieces from 2000 and 2002) or out of copper and steel alloy (pieces from 2005). The two alloys are mentioned together, but the set comprises the coins from 2005 only. It can also be mentioned the fancy English translation of the self proclaimed republic: "Pridnistrovien Moldavien Republic"!
The set hit the market in 2011.
2.000 sets were issued.

Why Transnistrian Coins on Romanian Coins?
Because Transnistrian coins are held in their pockets and used as such by Romanian speaking Romanians on their native land.
