Hello,

Could anyone give me some info on this coin? (Year of issue, rarity, any numismatic value?) The year on it is 1836, the material is silver, I think it must be a much later copy/reproduction of the famous & very rare platinum coin. Weight 6,68 grams,diameter: 28,5 mm.

Thanx!

How did you determine that the material is silver? I agree that it makes sense for it to be silver given the weight you give. If it were a genuine (or even a fake--yes fakes actually made out of platinum exist) platinum piece it would weigh about twice as much.

Hello,

Yes, I know for sure it is silver (not platinum, unfortunately)...thank You! :unsure:

I guess I wasn't very clear in my phrasing. How did you determine that it was actually silver as opposed to cupronickel or something else? (It is pretty obvious it wasn't platinum!)

Hello, sorry, was away on holiday...No, I took You right, just expressed my sorrow about its not being platinum... With many (35 or so) years of experience, I can tell silver from cupro-nickel or other stuff without any special tests.

Yeah. I understand Russian Imperial Platinum Lust. I used to own a complete type set, the 3, 6, and 12. In fact I had two of the three ruble pieces. The first one I got is badly worn, bent, and has had an X carved in it (probably two different instances of someone doing the "acid test" on it back when these coins were nothing but bullion). I still have that one but sold the nice 3 and the 6 and 12. Those three coins are how I got my 2005 Howland Wood award.
