  1. It's a ΒΌ Anna from Gwalior State, India. Should be 1929 looking at the portrait, but the date is on the other side....
  2. Here is the response from a New Zealander... HTH Andy
  3. for the portrait see here, http://www.ramint.gov.au/designs/obverse/gottwald.cfm still working on the other questions
  4. The fern leaf reverse was only used with that portrait in 1979. It has a mintage of 25,000 with 85,000 in proof. The 1980 had a fantail, 1981 Oak, 1982 Takahe.
  5. Always thought the later NZ dollars were NCLT? There is another so far unique portrait (not NZ) from a one year issue circulation coin....
  6. A while ago on another forum - I put together this short list of circulation coinage portraits..... Starting from top left, 1) UK, Australia, Bermuda, Caymen Islands, Cook Islands, East Caribbean States, Falkland Is, Gibraltar, Guernsey, Isle of Man, Jersey, New Zealand 2) Canada 3) Canada 4) Canada (2002 50 Cent only) 5) UK, Australia, Belize, Bermuda, Cook Islands, Fiji, Gibraltar, Guernsey, Hong Kong, Isle of Man, New Zealand, St. Helena & Ascension, Solomon Is, Tuvalu. 6) Caymen Islands, Jersey 7) Gibraltar 8) UK, Australia, Bahamas, Bermuda, Canada, Caymen Islands, Cook Is
  7. This one is another Jeton, probably made in Germany - hence "rechen pfennig" This one depending on size is a Penny (32mm) or Half penny (28mm) of George IV from 1825 to 1827. 20 Kopeks, Russia 2 Piastres, Egypt, British occupation issue Egypt, 5/10 Qirsh, AH1293 (1876) The actual year of issue would have been on the other side but it's too far gone to tell. Egypt, 10 Milliemes
  8. 28mm is a half penny, the penny of the time being 32mm. A far cry from today's tiddlers!
  9. It's an 1834 William IIII UK Farthing? (depends on diameter).
  10. Can I see some initials on Queen Victoria's collar? Perhaps it just my eyesight though.
  11. Yes, Looks to be Japan KM C#1.2 Mon (1668-1700)
  12. it's a commemorative medallion (is this the right word?) Unofficially issued with the design of the older (by then defunct) 5 centc.
  13. What Finn said, but just to add a bit more detail; 20 Centimes until 1867 50 Centimes until 1920 1 Franc until 1920 2 Francs until 1920 5 Francs until 1878 (not made after then) 10 Francs 1929 to 1939 20 Francs 1929 to 1939 The Franc was revalued in 1960 to the rate of 100 old Francs = 1 New Franc, so we have a brief resumption in silver (until the silver price climbed too high as a result of the oil crisis in the early 1970's) 5 Francs 1960 to 1969 10 Francs 1965 to 1973
  14. "The union began in 1958 and existed until 1961 when Syria seceded from the union. Egypt continued to be known officially as the "United Arab Republic" until 1971" http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_Arab_Republic
  15. Age is hard to say, they could be anything between Victorian and maybe 1950 or so. Some of the early silver ones are quite collectable, but I'm no expert on them!
