   I have been collecting the FAO Albums and Boards for several years, but have never found another reference than the site from Arthur Newmark (who had has developed fao-coins.info 2004-2016) for this series. This list represents my attempt to gather all I can find about what Boards, Albums, Medals and other collections have been issued by the FAO. I produced about a third of this list by cataloguing the albums and boards in my own collection and adding in whatever additional information has been contributed by other collectors. 

      The hand transcription leaves room for ERRORS. Please contact me if you find errors on this page.

   Books may not contain all appropriate coins - especially FAO-1&2 and World Food books where pages are loose-leaf



  Book 1 RED 52 coins 1968-70 (7,110 complete RED albums of 6 pages)                       TOP
    BOOK ONE -RED  (and presumably later books) was sold by subscription and issued one to two pages at a time. Each successive page tended to have a smaller number released than the earlier pages. The numbers issued I have listed were printed on the inside covers of later albums.

    PAGE 6 also was released in BLUE as part of the second album.   ( Sales prices )
