  1. Hi , does anyone have any info or explanation ,as you can see one of my half pennies is brighter then the rest almost gold , I thought it might just be well preserved , but it stands out so much that perhaps it's been pressed with the wrong metal? Any thoughts?
  2. the most famous and remarkable gold coins of the Ottoman Empire are those of the km # 638 series. 1HAYRIYE ALTIN these coins were used for commercial transactions as well as for jewelery. at the time of his kingdom MAHMUD II (1828 - 1833) it had given a relative liberty to the subordinate peoples to have in their possession such gold coins. at that time many poor people living in the countryside managed to get these coins by working hard they gathered them not to feel rich but more to endow their daughters. so when the time of the wedding arrived, they pierced these fine gold coins and made a golden necklace and splashed them on the neck of the bride and with these golden coins the new couple made their new house. This is the reason why most of these coins are pierced. many of these coins have disappeared since then and some have been rescued.and have remained very little because after the fall of the Ottoman empire and the creation of the new Turkish state, the Turks banned every transaction with these coins and after he had gleaned as much as he could have melted them. this law has been up to date. But there is something that the collectors of the Ottoman coins maybe not aware of is that among these golden Ottoman coins of that period some of them are really very rare. among those golden coins that left me as an inheritance my grandmother is that in the photo with date of cut 1223/23. The coins of this date are really difficult to find anyone who love these coins and is a fanatical collector of Ottoman coins There are also some variations in decorative flowers in relation to the other coins of this series and I believe that for all these reasons and for the history of these coins, the valuation of their collectible value must be very large. Thanks
  3. I have a US 1 dollar coin. It is Stamped 1804. I'm just wondering how I find someone to tell me what it's worth if anything?

  8. Hi coins lovers, Just wanted to say hello and tell how glad I am to discover this forum. I am writing this from Lisbon and yes we still have some hot sun 😉 I have been collecting coins for almost 4 years little by little but I love it very much. I remembered someone saying that "coin collecting is the art of spending money without actually losing it "... Or something around those lines 😎 Anyway, I am looking forward to learn from you folks and share as well indeed. Great day to you Stan www.croasus.com

  10. Hey Coin World! Does anyone know the value of this coin?
  11. Hi, Could anybody tell me how much the £2: 2015 First World War Centenary, sure shield of Britain coin is worth? Thanks
  12. Found this coin with a circular dent around the "D" mintmark (1984 D US Penny). Is it possible that this is an error coin of some kind? Dent is symmetrical in depth and width. Here are some pictures, sorry for the quality. http://imgur.com/iBjoU2U http://imgur.com/bKaHks7
  13. Hello, I found this coin in my basement and I don't know what it is or what it's worth. Here is a link because the files were "too big to upload": http://imgur.com/a/zfd81 On the one side you can see an eagle and at the bottom it says "75u". On the other side you can see the two brothers with their names and the date "1963-1968". It looks like some coins that I saw on the internet but not a single one is actually the same. I tested it and i came to know that it was made of gold. The coin is 0.86 inch/ 2.2 cm in diameter, 0.04 inch/ 1 mm thick and it wheighs about 0.2 oz/ 5.7 gr. I would really like to know what kind of coin it actually is and what it's worth. Thanks in advance
  14. Hello anyone know what is that? Arabic maybe?
  15. I have published a short book that details in depth how to design and manufacture your own coins! First post, I know and I'm selling something- truth is I've only lurked this forum in the past but I thought that the frequenters may be interested in the book I recently completed on the subject of designing and manufacturing your own coins I'm really excited to present this as the target market that inspired the book are partly based in these forums. I have tried to make it as straightforward as possible without being condescending and I really believe that the information contained will help anyone starting out (or maybe those already started) with the lengthy and sometimes isolated process of making their own awesome coins. A little more detail: In the past on other forums at at social meet-ups I have had questions asking about how my coins were made and the techniques used. So in response I have written extensively on every part of my work process and standardised it into chapters that quickly bring all the relevant information and skills together and show how anyone can create fun and interesting coins themselves! I hope that you enjoy the book (and making coins) as much as I enjoyed writing and using the techniques contained in the eBook! <<<snip>>> Comments and questions welcome (especially on the eBook page itself), I will try and get back as soon as possible. The book is also part of Kindle Unlimited- so if you have that it won't cost you anything I'm sure that you are probably unfamiliar with my small scale projects, so here are some links to them Goxxed Coins Unobtanium Bar Silver Wallet

  19. i recently found 5 identical Russian gold coins from the year 1899. Can anyone tell me the value and some extra info on the coins?
  20. We found this in an old collection of Mexican coins, however we're not even sure if it IS a coin let alone from where and when. It smells and weights like bronze, and it has some sort of sealer on the side of the cross, or what looks like a cross.
  21. Need help identifying this coin. Thanks in advance!

  23. Does anyone have extensive information on this coin? Metal content? Value? Especially value and metal content.
  24. Morning, I recently bought a small collection of Pre-WWII and WWII banknotes and coins from a small militaria shop near to where I live. I was hoping that someone would be able to give me more information on the notes/coins, as I purchased them specifically because of the dates they were printed/minted. If someone could give me more information or even a value I will be very grateful. I have graded the notes as honestly and fairly as possible. I bought all of it for £10, and quickly bought them home and put it all into protective sleeves and cases. As I walked in he had just bought a suitcase with it all in, and that is probably why I got it for a 'tenner', as he was more interested in the uniforms and medals. The set consists of 21 notes and 4 coins, and are as followed: Banknotes Tien (10) Gulden (Princess Emma (Old Woman) Rembrandt Version) - Dated 20 June 1940 - Very Fine (One edge has a fold on it) Tien (10) Gulden (Blue Version) - Dated 4 February 1943 (Series 2) - Very Fine 2 Een (1) Gulden (Red Version - Both Dated 4 February 1943 (Series 2) - Fine/Very Fine (Light folds on one of the notes) Een (1) Gulden - Dated 1 October 1938 (Series BX) - Very Good (Paper is very thin in the middle though) 4 Funfzig Pfennig (1/2 Mark) - Dated Serie 1944 (Allied Military Authority) - Very Fine/Good (Three are in very good condition, but one is quite dirty) Eine (1) Rentenmark - Dated Serie 1944 (Allied Military Authority) - Very Fine (Nice colour and one fold along one corner) Eine (1) Rentenmark - Dated 30 January 1937 - Very Fine (Best note of the lot, brilliant colour and no folds/pin holes) Bwei (2) Rentenmark - Dated 30 January 1937 - Very Fine (One fold down the middle) (Belgian) Cinq (5) Francs - Dated 1 February 1943 - Fine - (Has a dirty mark on the top right corner) (Belgian) Dix (10) Francs - Dated 1 February 1943 - Very Fine (Has no marks or folds, but paper is a little dirty) (Belgian) Vinght (20) Francs - Dated 23 January 1943 - Good (The worst note of the lot, good colour, but has dirty marks round most of the edge, and has many folds, no tears though) (French) Deux (2) Francs - Dated Serie De 1944 - Very Good (French) Cinq (5) Francs - Dated Serie De 1944 - Good ( No rips/holes but is quite grubby) 2 (French) Cinq (5) Francs - Dated 2 June 1943 - Very Good/Fine (Both notes are a bit grubby with a minor fold down the middle) (French) Dix (10) Francs - Dated 2 February 1939 - Good (Colour is nice, but one major rip along the top border cuts a little into the design) (French) Vingt (20) Francs - Dated 28 January 1943 - Very Good (Tiny rip on top border, does not go into the design though) Coins 5 (Silver) Reichmark (with Swastika) - Dated 1938 - Great condition, no signs of cleaning/tarnish/damage 5 (Silver) Reichmark (with Eagle & 2 small Swastika) - Dated 1935 - Very Good condition, has the Potsdam Garrison Church on the back 2 (Part-Silver) Reichmark (with Swastika) - Dated 1937 - Very good condition, shows signs of circulation 10 (Iron) Stadt Duren - Dated 1918 - Brilliant condition, considering it is Iron, there is not rust/damage/tarnish
