Hi everybody, • Here's something lots of you will recognise: • Being from Belgium, if I tell people I collect coins, and they give me some they still have at home, those are often Belgian coins of e.g. 5 frank, 1 frank, 25 cents, ... Or when I buy coins by kilo, a lot of the "world coins" are Belgian. If I buy it in a coin shop, it's not that much, but when I buy it from other collectors, who are "getting rid of their doubles", let's say, it's sometimes half of the coins that is Belgian.

[solved] Réplique ou non ?

Egyptian pound: one currency or several currencies?

I think it's rather six different periods. • The official name of the state changed (due to a change of "composition": kingdom, sultanate, republic, ...). Apparently, Numista can't let continue a currency over a change of issuer. • That's what I think, at least.

Apparently... Maybe I should just sell it for the little silver that's in it... • I actually did not buy it myself, but exchanged it for a 1980 Belgium 500 frank.
