Portuguese/angolan coin help please


Recommended Posts

I have had a copper (looking) coin from the portuguese colony of angola for some years now, and finally decided to find out if it's rare/worth anything!


It's dated 1750 and has a large X on the front of the coin.. with the inscription "PORT.ET.ALG.REX ..... IOSEPHUS.I.D.G" above the X is a crown


on the obverse there is a coat of arms and the inscription "PECUNIA.INSULANA"


I have searched high and low on the net, but have had little luck at finding out much about it.


Please help me,




Dean (from Birmingham, England)
