Go to Potosí (Bolivia) •
most of the world silver coins from 1600-1800 came from there. •
for some people the silver from potosi started modern capitalism..... •
and I my (humble) opinion it's not far from the truth...….
(edit vp: non compliant with forum policy)
Last month I could not board a plane with a bottle of water in my hand luggage. •
Put fear on the people and they will accept to lose their freedom.

Swaps and trades
if you make a swap with the same person every week or month... at the end it's best to sent the coins but to cancel the swap... otherwise your swap list becomes pretty awkward even without a red flag...… •
I have the same.. some swaps immediately lead to another swap... but keep it low profile...

Demonetized : 10-15-2017 (whatever the 15th month of the year is )In some cultures they write the dates as "Month-Day-Year" •
So it is 15 October....
False coin (the right one) from Colombia. •
There were so many fakes of this coin that is was taken out of circulation when the new bi-metallic came out.
And that what do we do with the Belgian euro coins.....some years are only available in sets... •
make a page "circulating" coins with the years that are in circulation. •
and a page "non circulating" for the years that are only available in sets •
We all know that the euro coins are for circulation but subject to a quota. •
If the quota for a certain year is 0.... it does not mean that the coin became "non circulating" •
Some people open the sets and use them •
even coin cards are opened and used.
2 pesos conmemorativas.... Found in circulation in a very small town in the vast province of "la pampa" in Argentina
For Latin American standards the 50 pesos Uruguay is at about 1.5 USD a coin with a very high value. •
It' s not used very much but it is in circulation. The 50 pesos banknote is preferred by the people. •
the second highest I can think of is Chile. •
In Chile they use a 500 pesos while the lowest banknote is a 1000 pesos •
(sort of 1 dollar) •
Colombia, Brazil..Argentinia... highest value coin goes for about 0.25 USD
Also do not underestimate the power of religion. •
Was it not Chavez that claimed that God talks to him....so all he does is "devine" •

Quote: "Oklahoman"Hi Jarek. •
We should act on this. Serious members of IBNS are starting to develop an online catalog of notes. It is in the beginning phase. I think the ideal platform is numista. It is free. It has an amazing swap feature. it is probably more than half developed. It requires next to no recruitment as existing refs are ready to act . •
We are ready to act. •
Please. Do not allow another sub standard online catalog to be built. Numista needs to claim this. And own it.a little arrogant.... •
If someone else wants to make an online catalog who are we to oppose to it... •
Pride comes before the fall
Hi Matt •
very well done... •
Using coloured flags for the countries makes it very nice... •
And indeed you need the labels for reforms... Brazil...Argentina... Uruguay... Venezuela.... South-America is good at it. •
Do you also make a separation when for example a new king shows up? •
As said by some others... it is a good idea to leave some open spaces... it saves a lot of time when adding some coins, and it gives you the opportunity to start new countries on a new page. •
I have my albums also organized in a similar way but I have them first sorted out by continent and then even further by "north" "south" "central" etc.... •
It groups the countries with similar history/culture. •
and how do you feel about the fact that easily 20% of the albums are labels ? •
Somehow it bothers me that for some areas I have more labels than coins... •
For the following eigth coins the reference to the country and the value are on the same side. •
The other side shows only an animal of a figure. •
The side mentioning the country is the obverse •
For the following six coins: Numista has the country reference as the reverse. •
KM287: 200 Pesos: Quimbaya spinwheel •
KM 295: 50 Pesos: Spectacled Bear •
KM 296: 100 Pesos: Frailejon Fruit •
KM 297: 200 Pesos: Scarlet Macaw •
KM 298: 500 Pesos: Glass Frog •
KM 299: 1000 Pesos: Loggerhead Turtle •
The following two coins are OK •
KM 286: 500 Pesos: Holy tree of Guacari •
KM288: 1000 Pesos: •
500 Pesos, 2018 •
If I remember well Qatar and Oman also were part in the original discussion to form the United Emirates but at the end they did not join. •
Also for information Dubai itself does not have oil. Abu Dhabi is the one with the oil. •
Before it was a small town famous for their pearls and drinking water. •
Sailing ships used to stop to dive for drinking water where underground rivers merged in the sea. •
These rivers start in the Oman mountains and go all the way underground. •
In the Hata area there is a huge rocky area in which one if this rivers has carved it's way in a 10-15 meter deep canyon. It can be seen and enjoyed as it comes seemingly from nowhere and disappears again under the sand.
Rarity Index has as much to do with rarity •
as Nordic gold with gold •
or German silver with silver. •
Why don't they change it to Database Index. •
And it would be good if it would be per line.
Hi Bram •
Please can you bring back some 2 euro CC coins from Estonia ? •
I can get you some UNC banknotes from the Dominican Republic if you wish. •
Have a good holiday and see you around Christmas..... •
Kind regards •
Quote: "joecoin2"Oh no, so many of my American pre federation coppers were struck over other coins. •
Now I find out they are not worthy to be listed here at the best numismatic site in the universe. •
What should I do?Start your site
I use the "slider" pages for coin storage. •
I use the pages (Numis) that are smaller than A4, •
Depending on the size of the coins you can store 20 - 30 or 48 coins on each page. •
For your 500 - 600 coins that would result in about 20 pages.... which can go in one album •
The 2x2 flips I only use for my collection so things don't get mixed up. •
Quote: "HongKongCoinCollector"Hello! •
I'm in Myanmar right now but I noticed that coins are rarely, if ever, used here. Any tips for getting them? Could I exchange them in large banks or do they not have coins either?People tend to give them away in the temples.... put a banknote in the basket and grap some coins....
Just added a common circulating coin to the catalogue.......so NRI is 97...... •
It means nothing.......
Dominican Republic •
Not yet in Numista catalog.... •
Addition of the word "DOMINICANOS" •
and 1 pesos year 2018.
10 Pesos Dominicanos. •
Is a new KM number. •
From 2017 onwards they added "DOMINICANOS" to "PESOS" •
for the denomination 1, 5 and 10 Pesos. •
I have not seen yet the coin 25 Pesos from the year 2017. •
Request to add to the catalog made.
Do you think it was different in the time they built it? •
Think about it.... 800 years ago... they could have used the stones to build a thousand houses ... •
and with the wood for the roof probably another thousand... •
also then 800 years ago the poor remained in the cold.
I do the same.... •
First ask if they are interested.... •
Some probably do not cancel ypur swap because they do not really understand the how all the other options work. •
Most use this for the catalogue and are not to bothered to swap or to reply. •
And if your collection doesn' t change much you do not log in often.
I'm sorry to read this, •
but when more and more people will join Numista more and more it will reflect society.

It is a bit simple to say that it's bad luck for the receiver if YOUR package is lost. •
When you swap coins it's YOUR responsibility that the coins get there.

I just read the topic "Curious minds want to know" in the forum "swaps and trade" •
Looks like you had a second agenda on this topic.......
If the state of the coin would be very good or fine, you would not have problems identifying it. •
For me the coin is poor, not even good.
Looks like a German problem. •
Nothing to do with Spain.
I don't understand why the name "Nordic gold" is a problem. •
If you seriously think that they use gold to make a 10 eurocent coin, •
you better think twice.....
And what about the current Algerian coins •
The animals are on the obverse and the reference to the Country on the reverse.
it's good to have a millon of ideas •
others are still stuck with their first....
It quickly happens these additional swaps during or immediately after the first swap. •
One way to avoid these additional swaps is to confirm only the first swap and at the end of negotiations to cancel the additional swaps. •
obviously you have to discuss this with the swap partner.
I get your point.... •
the 2 euro of 2008 should be a coin with it's own dedicated page but without a KM number. •
(or remain with the "wrong" KM number KM281 that maybe one day will be corrected by Krause. With whatever number Kraus comes up with.)
I'm surprised to see the coins of Uruguay and Paraguay of 1869 -1870 to be on the same planchets. •
At that time Argentina, Brasil and Uruguay were in a bloody war with Paraguay and they basically destroyed the country. •
90% of the male population of Paraguay died in that war. •
If you visit Paraguay it does not take long to realize that they still haven't recovered from that war.
It is a sort of tourist token/ souvenir •
Not an official coin of Venezuela. •
so you have to search in that direction.
The reference catalogue for the Argentinian coins is. •
Monedacion de la republica argentina 1883- 2013 •
From Hector Carlos Janson. •
Every sunday in Parque Rivadavia (BsAs Capital) there is a coin fair. •
You might have a look overthere. •
Their gain comes from buying coins in bulk and selling them one by one.

The grid view is very great.... •
But if Numista would provide us the option of not showing "proof" and "set" coins then the old Numista viewer is super because it shows you also the quality of your coin. •
The fact of seeing different denominations in the same raster is good when you new to a certain country. Once you know the country well the lack of precision is a pity and for me a reason not to switch. •
Once again Numista needs a filter for proof and set coins... •
Saarland is put under the Country Germany. But when the coins were struck in 1954-5 Saarland was a part of France. •
In my opinion Saarland should be under France. •
The Saar is a territory on the western Rhine border of Germany, occupied by France by the Treaty of Versailles in 1919. It was leased to France for 15 years, until a 1935 plebiscite returned the region to Germany. Following the defeat of Nazi Germany in 1945, the Saar was once again given to France as part of reparations, this time for 10 years. In 1954-5, coins in denominations of 10, 20, 50, and 100 francs were minted for the territory, on par with the French Franc, before it was returned to the Federal Republic of Germany (BRD) in 1955 as a sign of goodwill for the creation of the EEC in 1957 •

What I dislike about FAO coinage is lack of consistency. Issues from different countries were struck from different metals, with different shapes and sizes. •
The shape, size and selection of material is consistent with similar coins of the same denomination of the country. •
The denomination itself seem to be randomly choosen. •
Or is there a certain reasoning behind the selection?
it looks like you don't get it. •
the date on the coins obviously don't refer to the date Jesus was born. •
they are using there own time frame. •
As we are so used to "our" time frame we recalculate all the dates to correspond with our time frame. As such these refer to dates that go before our first year. •
kind regards •
lo siento.... •
but for me if the other party does not want to sent registered the deal is off. •
This should be discussed and clear before sending your coins. •
Now he has the advantage of the doubt •
and you have no ground to acuse him... •
again sorry for you...
privy marks refer to a person. •
For example •
In France, Belgium and the Netherlands it is a symbol choosen by the director of the mint. •
Particularity in the Netherlands is that in a year of change of director they use the symbol of the old director and add a star. •
Around the day in eighty worlds. •
I collect coins from the every place and I feel like travelling the world. •
Not forgetting the time travel. A lot of the coins are from states that does not exist anymore. •
All this without leaving home.
Reposition notes from Argentina •
In the airports I always ask " new and shiny " coins at each one of the exchange offices in exchange of old coins. •
Sometimes they are willing to help you sometimes they are indifferent. •
But in general it's worth the hassle.
it was on television •
and now it is on a coin •
but I will on believe it when it is on Netflix
the error remains and is indeed very annoying. •
you basically can only confirm after you and the swap partner cleared all the coins that are not a part of the swap.
just got this Argentinian •
note from the cash machine •
I guess one to keep
From Argentina •
not many birds on the circulating coins. •
1/2 and 1 cents at the time of the austral made in 1985 •
started with matchbox.... •
I have some UNC banknotes from Argentinia, •
The new series have animals as main.. •
We can make a small swap for coins during the Xmas period if you wish
I repeat what I said earlier.... •
the only thing that matters is how we (numista) want to call the country.....
No one cleans coins but everone knows a thousand ways.....???
I just noticed the same.... •
The swap list is not organized as is the Collection.
Obviously the system needs more input. •
Or by new users or by new coins from existing users. •
Do you realy think that existing users will add values for coins that they already added in the catalogue?
Don't we all are in need.....
It is possible to add a coin without giving it a grade, but once you did you cannot "ungrade" it anymore if you wished to.
I don' t see the improvement either. •
It is not possible to "see" your collection. •
You now have to read each word to know what you have. •
Indeed please make it possible to use the old viewer again. •
If I remember well the coin is also a part of the blister " rio" which contains the 8 belgian euro coins. •
In which number these coins are counted I don't know..... •
But for sure a lot of people do open the blisters and the coin cards.
Other culture..... •
Quote: "halfdisme"I know that this thread is about a British bimetallic, but I have heard a report of bimetallic euros, for which the centers were punched out, and the pieces were sold to China as scrap. •
China has re-combined them--often mixing the centers and rings--and they have been appearing on the market. For the euros this is a true story....
Hi Serganta, •
I´m quite sure I have the following in Belgium , •
New Jersey •
Rhode island •
maybe some more, •
but you gonna have to wait for Xmas when I´m in Belgium, as I´m living in Buenos Aires. •
Don' t confuse mint mark and mintmaster marks •
the mintmark from belgium ( brussels)'is indeed the archangel Michael. •
the mintmaster mark is a symbol chosen by the director of the mint. Feather, catm flag etc... •
The mintmark from the mint of france (paris) is the cornucopia •
the mintmastermarks are the bee, hexagon, dolphin etc... •
the mintmark from the dutch mint (utrecht) is The mercury's wand •
the mintmastermarks are the cock, fish ,sails etc... •
When there is a new director for one year they use the old minmistermark with an extra star... •
germany has mintmarks A, D, F, G, J. •
But no mintmastermarks •
the point is one identifies the place of production the other the responsible of the production. •
the letters BE, Or RI (italy) FI (finland) D (germany) or just country identifiers
Quote: "MonaSeaclaid"I love 2x2 flips. I get to feel the texture of the coin without rubbing away the patina (or worse!) and it makes it easy for me to record any information I have on the coin. They're also pretty cost-effective. •
So I use 2x2 flips and binders. •
The order in which you organise your collection is completely personal. Whatever makes sense to you is the way to go. I go by country then by year. Some people use KM numbers. I met someone who goes by metal content. I couldn't live with it but its their collection and they like it, that's all that counts. •
My belgian (paper) catalogue does list the coins first by king and then by metal content. •
The separation between kings is easy enough, the suborder by metal content is strange in the beginning, but somehow it also makes sense..... who is not separating his silver coins from the rest....
if you come one day to Buenos Aires we can swap a 20-30 coins. •
never seen in silver, always this colour. •
you stated the condition as XF but •
condition is not XF, there is no detail left of the hair and there is a blow on the other side.
Series across countries. •
ibero-american series, •
commemorative silver coins, •
already 10 series exist
In Argentinië •
The Coins that still circulate are •
2 pesos, 1 peso. But mostly instead of a 2 peso coin you will receive an old and weary 2 peso bill. •
Most get rounded off to 1 peso so 50 and 25 centavos are less used but still available. •
Very rare, 10 and 5 centavos. •
1 centavo is not anymore available.

Text: GEORGIVS SEXTVS REX •
The difference can clearly be seen in the position of the word '"BOLIVIANO" •
in the older coins (small 1) it is placed in the middle of the coin, and the top of "BOLIVIANO" aligns with the top of the 'U' of union •
in the newer coins (large 1) the text is placed lower than halfway and the top of "BOLIVIANO"aligns with the middle of the 'U' of union •
similar for the 50 Centavos, the word 'CENTAVOS" in the middle of lower than the middle
Thanks for the input •
Roman provinces is indeed the best bet (apart from "gaul"), but I see only coins linked to the romans, The celtic coins seem to be made independent fron the romans •
Gaul does only have coins from the continent
they also exist in south america •
eg: argentina 1 peso and the 2 peso coins
Quote: Andy289Show us a photo. There is a commemorative 2 pesos 2012 but nothing more new than 2012. I am curious. •
I asked to add the coin to the catalogue, but in vain ... •
no worries, it sits in my real collecion •
Quote: Lotus07Quote: PhilipBeHola, •
Do not forget the argentinian 2 pesos coin of 2014 in your count. •
I received it as change in a toll booth •
Happy new year •
PhilipSure, but which one do you mean? I can't find an Agentinian 2 Pesos from 2014 here on Numista, though.I asked to add the coin in the catalogue, but until now it has not happened, •
Thank you for the reply, •
The coin is magnetic and I add a picture of the obverse •
It is identical to the smaller coin, •
I cannot weight the coin. •
Is it a test trial? it is the first year of the Albert II coins. •
