  1. It's a ¼ 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!
  16. What are the dimensions for the Ethiopian coin? I think it is a gersh, rather than a birr.
  17. That would infact be less precise, since the United Arab republic ceased to exist in 1971....
  18. A full set of these medals would be quite interesting to collect, they were (as gxseries says) issued in UK proof sets between 1970 and 1999.
  19. both of these are not coins, but temple tokens from India.
  20. Both of these came from the same junk box for 30p, a few years apart though. Vietnam 50 Dong 1975 - most melted as scrap Ecuador 2 Sucres 1973 - not issued, 7 Known (there are more than this!)
  21. Great little guide My apologies but I found another, "I believe it is some what bad forum to give bad feedback to a seller if you believe they have charges too much" For forum replace with form, and charges replace with charged. My policy on ebay has always been that I don't bid more than I can afford to lose, If I get a dud (so far just one that I know about) I chalk it up to experience and move on. Might be worth mentioning that buying a coin in a slab does not automatically mean you won't be getting a fake?
  22. The Jersey "Liberated 1945" issues were struck in 1949, 1950 and 1952 with George VI portrait and 1954 with Elizabeth II.
  23. Dated just slightly before is the West African 1 Penny 1956 mule, with the legend George VI in error.
  24. ‘PEMEMBER, PEMEMBER THE FIFTH OF NOVEMBER’ is a known edge variant for these, quite common - the 'R' being simply poorly struck. I have no idea what a "2p with no date form the late 70's" is! Going rate for the undated 20p is around £50 on ebay, falling steadily from around £400 when the story broke.
