Default Is anyone familiar with these: Franklin Mint Coin Sets of All Nations

Howdy,

I came into possession of all 4 Volumes of the Franklin Mint Coin Sets of All Nations. I've done a decent amount of research into them (for someone who doesn't know the first thing about coins...lol) as well as trying to make sense of the wide disparity of pricing on Ebay, and so far I've come to realize a couple of things.

1. The China card appears to be the most valuable/sought after one in the set.

2. It's particularly sought after if the coins have certain dates and/or are 'proofs'.

3. Prophecy Guy hasn't the slightest idea how to identify a proof. He can call upon his trading card experience and mention that many of the coins have a 'refractor-ish' aura about them, but isn't sure if that means anything. (the 5 Jiao, 2 Jiao, and the 1 Jiao in particular).

4. The coins are as follows:

5 Jiao: 1981
2 Jiao: 1981
1 Jiao: 1981
1 Yuan: 1983
5 Fen: 1983
2 Yen: 1981
1 Yen: 1981

I've included some of the photos below:






Any help or suggestions as to the best way to determine the value and/or liquidate this card or the entire set of coin cards would be greatly appreciated. I note that you can't use Ebay's Global Shipping Program for currency, but does that include these or does the fall into the category of 'collectibles' at this point?

Thanks in advance,
Prophecy Guy

I don't know much about numismatic coin values or proof coins, but I do know that proof coins are typically shinier and have more distinguished look because they are usually double struck.
