  1. Please help me to identify this coin !

    Unfortunately Greek is not my area, perhaps someone else may be able to help?
  2. Silver somethings?

    Frankly I'm concerned that they all look the same - the vast majority of originals were lost in the 30s when China demonetized, and many more in the late 70s during the run up in silver price - almost all of the ones seen today are reproductions made in varying grades of alloy as well as the odd older fake. Two pieces that I purchased from a collector of East Asian artifacts who got them in the mid-80s, and whose collection of knives and swords was unquestionable genuine, turned out to be fakes - both turned out to be mostly lead.
  3. 1908 Roman coin collection

    Gordian III would be the grandson and son thereof of the former two, if I remember correctly. Silver coins from his reign are quite common. For " Aurelius" it sounds like you might have Aurelian, who was around the 270s-280s or so (going off memory).
  4. Chinese poem coins (1661 - 1722)

    Very nice! I've never gotten around to getting the Tai and the Nan. I should do that one of these days.
  5. For those who wish to see the scene of Capilano Lake / The Lions as shown on the left side of the reverse, the what3words location is bravery.bonnet.sober / binders.question.storms (yes, the patch of grass that's been worn out from too many people stopping there to take photos).
  6. New Note for my collection

    Paper note it appears?
  7. Die crack E

    Neat find!
  8. Notes have now been released to circulation. I've seen prefixes CDA and CDB thus far, and the sample photos from the Bank of Canada show prefix CDF. With a run of 40,000,000, and 10,000,000 notes per prefix, that would mean that there should be one more prefix out there (or two, if there's also one for replacement notes).
  9. Chinese hell note

    And now they make hell notes using designs of almost all current notes from China, Hong Kong, and some countries in the west. Makes a theme on its own.
  10. I sometimes wonder why casinos issue a 50c token instead of a $2.50 token given that the point of the 50c is to allow for a $7.50 payout if a player gets a blackjack on a $5 bet (assuming usual 1.5x payout for that).
  11. Found in The Coinstar Reject Bin Thread

    I've gotten 2017 coins, but only from mints or banks, and not from change.
  12. Was the design taken from a commemorative 50c or so-called dollar? It looks kind of familiar.
