  1. Does anyone know the Mintage of a 1899 50 kopecks. I found the coin yesterday in a coinstar reject bin and I am wondering is it worth anything? It is in F-VF condition.
  2. Just upgraded to a 2004 1/10 ounce gold eagle with 250,016 minted.
  3. Today I bought my first gold coin and I LOVE IT !!! What do you think???
  4. Today at my local coin shop i niticed the cheap foreing coin box for the first time. I made some increadible deals. First I noticed that there were 1 qnd 2 Euro coins. A bought 13 euros. German coins from the 1890's and a bunch of other old coins. The coins cost 5 for 25 cents. I got $15 in euros for 50 Cents. Why are this coins so cheap? Does anyone know?
  5. What is your rarest coin? Mine is a 2005 Bulgarian 50 stotinki which I got in my change last year with 500,000. My rarest US coin is a 1843 quarter with 645,600. My ancient coins are probably far more rare, but there is no way to know the mintage.
  6. At what age did you start your collection. I was 7-8 when I fell in love with coins. I am wondering when did other people start
  7. I wonder how it works on ebay because a lot of ancient, silver and gold coins can be bought from all over the world. Does that make selling ancients overseas on ebay illigal?

  9. Well I dont think it's a lot. The older coins I brought with me from Bulgaria The US coins don't cost more than $100 which is not a lot. The foreing coins, the nickels and I got in change or in the coinstar reject bin. I am going to Bulgaria next month and I will take some of my collection with me 100-200 coins. I have 500-600 coins there which I got from my grandfather. I don't want to take them all because I am not sure about the coin exporting laws.

  12. I am going to Bulgaria soon. I have a lot of old and silver coins (100-200) and I would like to take them back to Chicago with me. Some people told me that it is illigal. Does anyone know about coin exporting laws from the EU to the US.
