One Belgian 5 Francs coin, minted between 1865-1878, in Fine or better circulated condition. These coins have seen moderate circulation, but the design features and lettering are still well defined. All coins have original surfaces with an original patina, and have never been cleaned.
A Belgian silver crown of King Leopold II. Leopold is most famous for surreptitiously gaining control over the African region of Congo as a private individual, with the aid of a mercenary army. He established his own private state there (unaffiliated with Belgium) and amassed a huge fortune through brutal exploitation and enslavement of the native Congolese population. International pressure eventually forced him to yield possession, though not before he had caused the deaths of more than 2 million people.
