Post a Pic of Your Oldest Dated Coin Thread

Recommended Posts

hungarydenar1508.jpg

 

When I was a kid I bought an 1822 Large Cent at a state fair once, for a few weeks it was my oldest dated coin until I got a well worn but discernable 1817 Large Cent, a couple of years later I bought a 1797 Large Cent, then went downhill from there after getting into foreign coins.

 

So far, this coin that I purchased probably 15 yrs ago remains my earliest dated coin from coins dated in the Christian era, a 1508 Hungarian Denar minted during the reign of Wladislaw II Jagiello of Hungary(1490-1516) Hungarian denars because of their great quantity remain the easiest and most affordable way to obtain a very early dated coin.

 

Please post a pic of your earliest dated coin, perhaps someone has something older than this.

1504 Hungary Denar with a doubled A in "PATRONA", and doubling on some reverse letters as well.

 

Hungary and Poland IMO are the easiest (and least expensive) Western Arabic dated coins in AD.

 

[Edit: I changed my coin and pic]

That's funny - a few people have Hungarian Denar.

 

Well, they can't really be beat for the price/grade (for early dated), and they're silver! :ninja:

I was hoping someone could beat mine, really :ninja: That is cool with the early variant of the numeral 4.

No need to post a pic, my oldest christian era dated coin is also a Hungarian denar. Mine is from 1510 though. I wanted to post my oldest non-hungarian coin, a 1532 one-sided Austrian Klagenfurt pfennig, but somehow I keep getting the message that my pictures are over 1000k which they are not.

Hey Dave, I don't have a Hungarian denar that is older, but I have one that is just a year younger. :ninja:

My oldest dated is a 1412 Groschen from Aachen. It is a partial date type that can be seen on the coin as CCCC 8 XII, with the 8 as a spacer. It may not be in the greatest condition, but when I get to be almost 600 years old, I probably won't be in very good condition either.
