Columbian Coins in Cartagena


I"m heading to Cartagena next week from Toronto. I have an odd question. I'm a bit of a coin / stamp collector. Is there anywhere in Cartagena that you think would sell these sets? I'd rather not dive through my change but find a nice set for sale.

is there any place you guys can think of were i can get this?

Not a clue, but if they're available anywhere it'll be in a place like Cartagena that has a huge tourist presence.

Good luck.

I would shoot for the following places...

1. The rare books store : in calle de la Iglesia with Calle de la Mantilla

2. El Banco de la Republica: Cl. 33 # 3 - 123 Plaza de Bolivar

3. El Museo del Oro: across banco de la republica.

All these places are inside the old city within minutes (walking) from each other.

Good luck and welcome to Cartagena.

sad to say it buit there is nothing in Cartagena. All these find pieces are only found thru the Net.

Try ebay. Stamps aer easier to come around...depending on dates. Fine envelopes que a bit harder but everything is available in ebay.

I'm not sure about Cartagena but I have seen some interesting old coins on display at Casa de Moneda in Bogota; the museum is a must for any coin aficionado. Sunday flea markets in Usaquen and La 26 are sell old stuff on a buyer beware basis.
