Quinns Rocks man hopes for return of sentimental coin collection

A QUINNS ROCKS man is hoping for the return of sentimental coins which he believes were stolen from his home that were given to him by his dying mother.

Blair Allan had been on holidays in Zimbabwe for three weeks and returned to find the items missing.

Two of the coins (pictured) were from what was formerly Southern Rhodesia while the others were American silver dollars and quarters.

One of the Southern Rhodesian coins was made into a necklace.

Mr Allan believes the coins were stolen between April 13 and 25. He said a house sitter had visitors to the home while he was away, but she was “adamant” the visitors had not stolen the coins.

He said police could not investigate the visitors because they had been invited into the home. There was also no sign of burglary.

Mr Allan said the coins were a gift from his dying mother and meant the world to him. Anyone with information can contact blairallan65@iinet.net.au.
