    Does your coin have a KM#? I could not find a listing for this "coin" anywhere.

    Oh I found it. Its KM-33a. It came out of a Proof Set.

    Yes, they issued two proof sets, one in gold, then this in platinum. The platinum coins all had a mintage of 72 pieces. also the condition is remarkable, considering in 1966, most proof coins were not encapsulated/ just came in a presentation case.

    Do you know where your coin was minted/made?

    How did the RMA that was established in 1982 mint a coin in 1966?
    I am having a hard time finding any information that says Bhutan has their own Mint. I have found proof that they do use Singapore Mint to make coins and
    banknotes.
    This is disappointing to say the least. as I have a few coins from Bhutan. Now I am wondering if these coins have ever been in Bhutan at all, ever.

    Many of the NCLT of the last 75 years was never designed by people of it's country, never minted by it's country's mint, never seen by anyone from it's country, and has no association with its country at all. I could list a notorious dozen, so this is no surprise at all.

    Non-circulating legal tender.......

    Non-Circulating Legal Tender. Coins that could normally be considered legal tender but do not because they were minted for special purposes (like proof sets).

    Thanks for the info. Just like ASE's, Maple Leafs ..And that bullion stuff that is made to generate revenue.

    Yes, "Non-Circulating Legal Tender". I'd add Guernsey, Canada, USA, Niue, Isle of Man, and a host of others to the list. In fact, almost all modern mints produce scads of NCLT... it helps them pay for loss-leaders like US cents and nickels.

    ...here's someone who understands how to enjoy coins.
    Notice how it doesn't take too much effort. Just eclectic tastes.
    It isn't the only way, but one way for sure.
