1992 10p UK
Were there indeed more 1992 large 10p coins minted than stated on this page: •
Or are those (as I suspect) all mistakes and should most of these be on the small 10p page? •
Most of those coins should be moved to the small 10p page and the values should be removed.
some more •
need cropping •
Xavier, thanks! Looks very good. •
Is it then also possible to add this link (» See details for each year/mintmark) to all coin pages (now only available if several yearlines available or when all swappers do'nt fit on three lines). Probably to be renamed too (» See details for all coins for swap) •

Coin identifications and valuations
Our mint closed last year, since 2019 our coins are minted in the Netherlands. Though I don't check for that kind of errors to be able to say if the coins are of better quality since. •
Quote: "Xavier"I agree this is a limitation. Comments for each year line would still be needed in this case.ok, thanks

Quote: "BramVB"BramVBThat's it. Thank you. •
So the "Collection" on the profile page just shows what you have not for swap, correct? •
You're welcome :) •
Indeed, the idea is that your collection is not for swap. The numbers on the My coin page used to show the same info, until the options for different collections were added so there is more flexibility there now too filter the values (thanks again Xavier!).
Du 26 au 29 Janvier je vais visiter Paris avec la famille, je n'aurai pas trop de temps mais peut-être quelqu'un serait intéressé de faire un échange avec moi. •
- Je cherche encore un tas de pièces Européenne (la plupart avant 1950 ou des commémoratives), regarde dans mon profil pour voir combien de pièces de votre liste d'échange m'intéressent. •
- Pour les Eurocollectioneurs, je suis encore à la recherche de rouleaux originaux de €2 commémoratives (de la France j'ai seulement la de 2015 drapeau), j'ai beacoup de rouleaux des pays Baltiques pour offrir en échange. •
- Je collectionne aussi des monnaies avec plantes et animaux, aussi des billets de tout le monde. •
merci de regarder •
(Et pour les Belges qui lisent cette invitation ... toujours possible de se rencontrer en Bruxelles, presque chaque semaine).
Just "presence" or "presence in collections" would clearly define what is is.
For the sake of discussion ... has anyone in the numista team made any New year resolutions regarding a banknote database? •
a merry 2020 to all those collecting coins and/or banknotes.
Happy new year from Estonia and in a few days again from Belgium.
I think there is also the issue that until you have added 1 coin yourself to your swaplist, the number of coins of interest to both parties is not shown on your profile page (https://en.numista.com/echanges/profil.php?id=74058). So just add a (virtual) coin for swap in your collection ... a Lincoln cent for example ... then I can for example immediately see how many coins in my swaplist would interest you. •
You can also open a swap with me, were you can mark the coins on your wishlist (with a heart) that you would want from me. Like that I (as a potential seller) can immediately see what coins (by type, year, mint) interest you. •
If you happen to pass over Brussels on your way to Ypres, we might meet for a swap. Give me a shout when you have more details
Today I got at two shops the last 2 circulating 2019 coins from Estonia: regular 1c and commemorative €2 Tartu university. I also got the €2 song festival in July but apparently forgot to report it. •
All but 3 sets still available. Will be able to send out during the next two weeks if there is any more interest.
The point is that, but this info is missing on the english page!, the first coin was minted with a different edge (fine reeding) as production had started before the final agreement on coin specifications had been made. The whole production was then destroyed (waffled) but some were recovered before remelting. •
So the issue is not the waffling, but a different reeding. Most of the recovered coins with this reeding have been wafled, but there also seem to be some that got out undamaged. •
The English page clearly needs an update with all this extra info. If nobody else does it, I'll give it a go one of these days. I'm quite sure this coin with different reeding deserves its own page.
Quote: "ZacUK" In the Latest coins section, there are these three ... •
yet when clicking on the Series link none of them are shown - •
and what on earth is the Shēngxiào Collection in the name thereof? Seems to be an issue with the link, it uses double quotation marks that are not accepted in the search (single quotation or none do work). I guess a little bug that needs the attention of Xavier •
Shēngxiào is Chinese to me , but does seem to mean Lunar •
Weight seems to be a discussion point quite often, as we most often do not know the variability of it. •
I have noticed in some threads that people try to make a list of measured weights, to get an idea of the average and the variability. Maybe, just like with the buying values of coins, we could add weights to the coins in our collection. Like that an average weight + standard deviation could be derived for the coins (per year if necessary, as some cointypes have varying weights per year), also taking into account the grade of the coin. Just like with buying values it would be a totally voluntary thing to add these weights, but it could result in quite an interesting dataset. •
Just an idea ...
Found this strange (copper?) token at an auction, but cannot find anything about it, but it looks old and interesting. •
On one side it has a shield with a griffin with sword, that reminds me of the coat of arms of Livonia. •
The other side has a wreath and then some flowers with in between what looks like: "II", 2 I's in a cross, 2 I's making an upside down V (lambda?) and then tho bent I's forming a circle. The center is not visible as it seems to have been turned into a button or badge at some time. There also seems to be a seam of some kind between the wreath and the floral section of that side (or could be part of the design as well as it's only partially visible on both ends of the coin and nothing of the kind visible on the other side). •
I am waiting for some info on weight and size, but I'm guessing about 12 to 15 mm. •
Didn't find anything in the catalogue yet, nor did mr. google be of any help (he suggested it was a dime ) •
great work as always, thanks •
just noticed a small error in the title: 902.2 instead of 901.2
I don't collect these coins, but shouldn't we ignore the differentiation made by Krause and join both on one page (with a variety for 1898, which happens to have its own KM#)? To me they both belong to one type ... with a minute difference in design size (not even in design). •
I know there are more coins like this that only differ by minute designsizes ... (eg. the Belgian 50c with big and small head and such). Is there a general rule to be applied for the future numista-numbering when to split a type?
He can refuse your offer and then you can again change the coins in the swap before again confirming the swap.
3 in the catalogue, one still missing (please add it) •
these are no coins, just tokens
On the coinpage the third yearline states "with or without diamond", I suppose it has to be one or the other as there is already a regular 1948 penny is already there on the first yearline. •
Anyone know which one is the "common" one and which one the "variant"? (I'm guessing the one without a diamond)

1954 is not mentioned (yet) but it's very close to a swiss 2 francs in aluminium •
Please add pictures to confirm!
Seems to be for some kind of business fair (8th Estonian Show Fair) in Tallinn from 3-12 september 1932. Nothing too big by the looks of it ... •
No more info, except they recycled the medal design in 1934 (https://www.osta.ee/eesti-medal-naitus-mess-1934-pronks-roman-tavast-7-112962345.html).
There is even a tag for "mustache" (should indeed be moustache), but it's far from complete. At least we now have a member who will use this weird tag •
CarlosSilver, you now have the task to complete the list of coins with this tag
I spotted a similar comment on the 100 Lira coin •
There seems to be a (non-documented) difference there.
it was "including euros" •
(was answering on the top of my head, and it failed me with the exact wording) :)
More and more often the people wanting to swap don't have any coins that interest me for my collection. Sometimes they want coins I have a lot of and we can do a swap for coins I don't yet have in my swaplist. Like that we still both profit. •
Would it be possible to add a button on the exchange pages "I don't have this cointype in my swaplist" to make it easier to find them? •
Additionally it might also be useful to select different collections on this page to check coins against, as one sometimes has overlapping collections and might need a coin in both collections. (eg. I already have a Greek Drachme in my Europe collection, but I'm still missing this owl it in my nature collection)
Thanks all! •
Another small step towards perfection
Welcome to Numista! •
Posting some pictures would help to try to determine the exact issue.
Getting rid of some stuff that I don't need anymore to free some cash for loose coins. •
Estonian year set of 2018 containing all circulation coins (1c to €2 + 2 x €2 commemoratives) in BU condition (€90 /pc or €250 /3pc) •
I still have 3 sets that I bought for a swap than never took place. Mintage only 5000pcs, so usually sells quite expensively. Just trying to recover the money I put into them. Will also consider a swap with the Lithuanian set from 2018. •
Belgian €2 coins from 2014-2019 •
Belgium got the bad habit of issuing €2 commemoratives inside pieces of plastic and paper. These coins are therefore much more expensive than facial value and therefore more difficult to swap. Who wants some? •
2014 150 Years of Red Cross in Belgium (coincard €13, loose coin UNC €8,5) •
2015 The European Year for Development (€8,5) •
2016 Olympic Games - Rio 2016 (€9) •
2017 Université de Liège (€9) •

Just checked two pages and the line with the silver value is not showing anymore. I guess a temporary bug? •

Are both years the same type? The lettering is quite different ... •
just a thought
Probably not fully identiefied coins that were moved there on June 14th •
see this topic for more info: https://en.numista.com/forum/topic84741.html
You're welcome •
Enjoy your trip on this site and when in doubt, just ask!
In the "display options" (under the blue search frame) you can hide the "fast input" (which is all those lines of years and mintmarks you want to avoid).
Apparently they use the printer as the first letter on the 2nd series banknotes: •
F then refers to a Bulgarian printing facility, there is also one in Poland and in other non)Euro countries (like DeLaRue in UK).
On bank of Nicaragua website, they only mention "nickel plated steel" •
Might be a hint?
Quote: "pejounet"Once confirmed, it cannot be undone; see here the point "Confirm your swap". If you confirmed by mistake, your partner can reject your offer and you can again edit the ongoing swap process.
Yes, had the same happen at exactly the same time :) •
These are (among others?) Spanish coins (Franco + Juan Carlos I) where the minting year could not be read in the star. On June 14th these lines were apparently moved from the coinpage of the original coin to this separate section of "unidentified coins" subsection "Spain or Spanish States"
You can mark those coins as "I want to get this coin". Then it will have bot the green mark (in my collection) as the heart (I want this coin), like that I know it's a coin that I have but in bad grade.
Being a Europe-collector it's indeed Liechtenstein and Montenegro that are still missing after having had hundreds of swaps here. I'm quite hopeful that one day they'll enter my collection to be my 58th and 59th country. For number 60 and further on, I'll need to start moving towards the middle ages ... (Moldavia & Wallachia, Livonia, Kievan Rus, Bohemia).
second one is duplicate
All seems fine, there are 3 different ones (also a commemorative KM#29 that you linked to). They indeed seem to be mixing obverses and reverses over the three types (2 aluminium and 1 silver) •
Here are all three
Same here ... 4 coins for swap moved from 1 peseta Franco to unknown coin •
Was the yearline with unreadable star-date removed maybe? •
edit: looks like quite a few people were impacted by this move of coins: •
If there is real interest, I could make a list of exactly what coins go for that price ... or you just start a swap and I'll check on the go.
yes, new material gets a new page
Something is very wrong with the value showing up for this token •
I know how vAlues appear, so I don't get it how three people got it in Good for that low price ... especially if it were gold.
Here you'll find a list with in the fifth column the number of coins out of your 150 swap-coins somebody is interested in: •
That is of course if the other users are taking care of their want-list. I've noticed that if someone is interested in all your swap-coins they tend to not be using this function of "wanted coins". You'll notice I need 1 of your list (though you can't see it's the 1909 Farthing ...).
very recent post
I recently made another wonderfull swap, but one of the coins seems to be off. In the swap was included a Portuguese 3 Reis from 1764 . It is not a very rare coins and many are found online (for sale and sold). The coin I got though was very underweight (2.56g) compared to the numista coinpage (3.8g !). Online I have found weights between 3,0g and 3,94g, but none yet weighing as little as mine. Is there any source for the weight range for this kind of coins? The coin is also rather black than copper-coloured, but that doesn't seem to be unusual for this coin (sale of 3 coins with different colours), it also has some "nice" verdigris which I guess also points to copper. •
Here are pictures, it is F/VF, so weight loss from wear is is unlikely to be the reason: •
Is it just a normal underweight pre-standardisation coin? The swapper claims such differences are normal, and I have no reason to distrust him as we've already had several good swaps. Just looking for a se[...]

Quote: "jrkcornell"I've noticed a 'double check' on some of the coins I've added to my collection indicating 'i own both strikes of this coin', when I've only added 1 piece & there seems to be only 1 strike anyway. •
concerning your first question. •
A double check means you have all years or strikes available for that coin in your collection. With coins having just one year/variety/mintmatk/strike, having one coin means you immediately also get the double check.
Shouldn't there be at least a small difference in dimensions (weight, thickness or diameter) if it's made of a different alloy? •
On the coinpage on numista at least weight and diameter seem to be identical ... must be thickness then? Or error in weight?
Quote: "Giobruno"And I have a question about it: is that coin already catalogued (but not on Numista) or it's a brand new coin type? on the website they mention coins, but not sure if it's the same as on the picture: •
"This date was refined by tiny gold coins from the coffin, called tremissi from Merovingian France. The coins bear the name of the mint where they were made and the moneyer who made them and were only produced after AD 580."

Sorry for the bad picture, I broke my camera few days ago so I had to use my old phone.Hi, save some money for a better camera (instead of buying pastries). If you want us to confirm the authenticity of your Australian €2 coin, please also provide weight, width and height of the coin ... also, did you do the kangaroo-test with a magnet? •
Please also provide better pictures once you have a new camera, because I think you might have a coin with a very RARE portrait of Elizabeth II with veil.
It looks real to me, the details look fine and I just put a neodymium magnet on my screen and it did not attract. I think it is even the 100% 24 karat nordic gold plated variety from Niue. •

Already enjoying the new feature. •
I only already noticed that the wishlist does not yet distinguish between separate collections. Some coins I only want for my main collection, some only for my secondary one and some even for both. •
Any possibility to attach a wishlist to a specific collection? •
And did I already say thanks for the new feature?
We need to swap again then :-) •

Quote: "mikimaus" why for instance if I put in querry "Slovenska vojska", this coin is not in search results? •
It is with me (tenth token out of 19 results), maybe tokens were not selected when searching?

I don't think prices will differ that much from country to country. I think the extra postage would be a much bigger difference if you start ordering from different countries. •
On the other hand ... I do have a lot of €2 CC (most not on my swaplist) that I could swap for dozens of 50p/£2 coins I'm still missing, just at face value That might be your luck of living in the UK where they also produce massive amounts of circulating commemoratives with high nominal value!
I think it is all about a bit of common sense and building up a reputation. If you've built up dozens of succesfull swaps, you'll most obviously not screw someone up for a few coins in a swap. While the new member will still have to build up his/her reputation little by little. •
The only times that a swap didn't happen after asking the other side to send first was when I already had doubts about their intentions (very fast agreement on swap, agreement on very uneven value, even asking me to send first). So let's hope your swap partner can understand the reason for you to ask to send first, otherwise it might be a first red flag! •
Happy swapping :)

I think it's because you get a line per grade. In this case one is VF the other one is ungraded, if they would both be marked as VF they'd end up in the same line.
For letters or padded envelopes and if you don't want to lie/disguise the content when asked: just weigh the envelope yourself, get stamps and just drop it in the mailbox. Once it's in the system they don't seem to bother anymore to check if the content is allowed or not (and they definitely don't come to check it out at the sender's address ). •

Quote: "Xavier"I just fixed the "discard" functionality.I suggest that once you discard, you don't get the coin again yourself.

Quote: "SpuDy"The gold was premium minted for some Europe Kings of the time, was offered as a gift to them.the picture of the golden coin has been removed, the mintage of 500.000 still seems excessive for a premium coin that we don't seem to be able to find pictures off. •
Any idea of real mintage?
That's all true for shipments with custom forms. But when you want to send cheap, like me, you send as a letter (a normal envelope). Those are normally only allowed to contain paper, with maximum 5mm thickness. Even with well concealed coins, the clerks can notice there is something non-papery and as such should be sent as a parcel (much more expensive!). These last few months there seems to be an international crackdown on non-paper stuff in envelopes, judging from comments on the forum and personal experience in Belgium and Estonia. •
So yes, a little lie might be necessary. If they insist, you can always say it's one of those cards with an annoying song inside. Or just buy stamps and drop it in the mailbox yourself. Never yet did I have a letter returned ... fingers crossed. •
Yes, being able to have several sub-collections would be great. I have my main European collection, secondary fauna/flora collection, my swaplist ... and as mentioned, the proposal for implementing this has been accepted loooong time ago. •
In the meantime I did message Xavier and since then I have a second profile (BramVB_bis). I do prefer to be open about it, as to avoid any possible discussions (swapping/rating with myself, double voting in MPCC, ...) ... •
Probably no problem for a second collection, but would indeed be easier to have them all under one profile ...
In Belgium at the central bank you can hand in for free 5kg of coins per month. In a shop you can pay for max €1 with 1 eurocent coins. •
In Estonia at some banks if you have an account. •
So first figure out where you want to go with your kg of coins. But it's likely to give you backpain before you get rich. Why else does someone give away coins below face value ...
To all, sending you white Christmas wishes from Estonia. •
They were minted as from 1990, but only released in 1995 ... •
A bit like eurocoins from some countries with dates going back to 1999 (all released only in 2002) •

With this search you'll find all 94 circulating 25 cents from Canada from between 1969 and 2018 •
In cointype you can specify if you're looking for circulating or non-circulating. •
If the year is clear, then there is little extra info to be gained. If there is a more difficult variety to be recognized, I'd prefer to see some good documentation in the comment section so I can easily see the differences. •
I only see this suggestion as a partial and temporary solution for lacking documentation (and a possible cause for more confusion if ticked wrongly).
QuoteQuote Therefore, I buy writings on the sites, reviews of which you can read here - .Sounds like another account to just promote these writing sites. The link already seems to have been removed, why not remove the full post and remove the account? •
I've surely already reported half a dozen of these spam accounts that just posted some publicity once or twice. Shouldn't these accounts just be removed?
As far as I know, the median is indeed used with ALL values. But I think your definition seems to be off, as the median is kind of the middle value, in your example 0,9. •
So the numerical values of the highest or lowest values are indeed not used in the calculation, but do help to decide what the middle value is. In my opinion an acceptable way to go.
I already find it confusing that I cannot track the changes that are made in a swap, unless the partner sends me a message explaining what was selected/unselected. So the possibility of making coins disappear altogether is pretty scary ... Having the possibility to delete a coin that is selected by either party is definitely no-go! •
The easiest option might be to add a button "hide unselected coins", like that you can just make the ones that neither of the partners have selected (and are thus of no interest anymore) can just be hidden out of view (but can return if necessary).
In my original idea there was a more hierarchical structure (multilevel), where we can tag something as animal (if no more specific tag is available), as a bird (if not recognisable or very specific) or as an eagle. Then when you search for bird you get both those with a bird tag and those with an eagle/penguin/owl/.... tag. Now you have to select all birds or mammals separately if you want to get them all.
No idea about the token, but the bird is definitelly a capercaillie (also found in Austria, so you might still be on the right track). Though I must admit I've seen nicer ones on coins, like this one. •
Hope you find more info.
Next week I'll be driving from Tallinn (EE) to Klaipeda (LT) and then from Kiel (D) to Antwerp (B). As I'll need regular breaks from diving on the way, maybe I can combine it with a swap or 2 in person. •
Wednesday: Tallinn - Pärnu - Riga - Šiauliai - Klaipeda •
Thursday-evening: Kiel to some place to sleep in NW-Germany (not known yet, but max 300km from Kiel) •
Friday: from some place in NW-Germany to Antwerp (the route Hamburg-Bremen-Zwolle-Utrecht seems like the most direct one, but in Germany/N-Netherlands I could also drive closer to the coast through Bremerhaven). •
If you're interested in a swap, send me a message. I also still have a load of coinrolls of Estonian an Latvian commemorative €2, also willing to swap those for some Lithuanian, German or Dutch ones on the way ... (don't have to worry about the weight then ). •
Offers welcome! •
For not-on-the-road swaps, give me at least another week to get settled again in Antwerp ...
I'm also using the wishlist here on numista (easier for a type collector than a year collector I guess), but as I'm more of a cheap junk-bin addict (€0,50 maximum) with luck, whenever I do buy something I already have it's mostly good for swapping. •
BTW I have 25 full pages and one half page on my wishlist, that means still 2550 coins that I still want for now (I marked most countries till end of 19th century, afterwards I can still move back in time). That's almost as much as I already have in my collection (about 3100), but getting harder everyday to swap (silver, older, commemoratives, low mintage, ... are the ones missing).
I still have way too many coins on my swaplist. If anyone is interested in a few dozen or even a few hundred, give me a call. •
I preferably exchange for coins I still need (have a look at my profile page to see if you have any that interest me), it's all European, mainly before 1950's. •
My common coins that I have loads of (3 on a yearline, or more than 5 of a type), I'm also prepared to swap for coins with animals and plants on them or even for coins that I don't have on my swaplist yet. •
Of course I will also swap a bunch of my doubles for silver coinage or just sell them (most of what's on my swaplist I have been selling for 10 to 50 eurocent a piece, of course excluding the scarcer, very old or high nominal coins like €2's). •
Still a couple of swaps to sort out and you can be next!
I'm still looking for over 200 different types of these Polish commemoratives. If you have a few (or a lot) for swap and find interesting coins from my swaplist, please contact me. •
If you don't have these coins, please check my profile page to see if you have any other coins that I'm still interested in. •
Still hoping to get rid of a few hundred coins from my swaplist •

Autotranslate works for this kind of basic fields, but with the coin description, comments or comments on yearlines you'll need to do manual translations for sure. •
Yes, it might be confusing for some, but might encourage bilingual contributers to work on both languages. So maybe then make it standard monoligual and with the option of showing both language fields for those mastering both languages and willing to do the translation while adding/editing a coinsheet.
Probably inserted coins in the new layout without giving a grade. When you return to the old layout they cannot be shown in that layout (but are still stored somewhere). •
If that's it, only solution is to return to the new layout.
As these are made as non-circulating, they deserve an own coin page (and in future hopefully a set-page). Moreover, adding them to existing coin pages would just mess up the date ranges for those coins ...
When hovering over the flag you get the name of the country in case you don't recognise the flag. Just the flag gives a very clean layout, so please no extra text.

Coin identifications and valuations
People around here also have many years of experience identifying coins, and will always to best of their knowledge try to assist you to identify your metal disk. It's not my field of knowledge, so I rely on others ... •
I do agree it could be a unique golden coin, that was minted a hundred years ago and (by mistake?) ended up in circulation (visible by the wear on the coin). Afterwards it was used to adorn a traditional wedding dress before ending up in the sea and washed up on your beach. •
Or it could just be a fantasy medal/token/disk/coin (or whatever you want to call it) made for some belly dancing costume. •

thanks for banning them to coin hell (where you can only pay with bank cards )
Record data is of course not always comparable, if someone collects up to 5000 coins of the same type ... yes of course they'll have a high number of coins in their collection •
It's quite impressive to see how many different coins have been collected by some of the users here and to see the different ways some users collect (type, year, by countr, by continent, by theme, only 1 or more than one per year, ...), but as everyone collects in his own way I don't think comparing them is of any use. I recently started to collect original rolls of €2 commemoratives, but if I insert them in Numista there's really no point comparing this amount to someone just trying to complete the San Marino cointypes.
That's not a map on a coin, but rather a coin on a map ;)

You have to have the possibility to start swapping at some time. I don't think some specific cutoff numbers can prevent all problems. •
As you said yourself be careful and start swapping with members who have proven themselves trustworthy over a longer period of time. •
Mr. Midnight and Aaron, thank you both for your (positive) opinion!
Relatively to the coins it discusses indeed very new ("only" from 2010, it is the Haljak Catalogue, second part appeared in 2011). •
Currently both volumes for "only" €160 at the authors site (incl. shipping in Europe) ... though not my era yet, I'm still working on 20th and starting 19th century Europe, but hope to get there someday. In the meantime just learning about the history back then :)

Sounds great! •
A metal class with autocomplete/drop-down + customizable field for specifics would be perfect! •
Looking forward to implementation •
I should have said most common materials, as I think it would also show porcelain or plastic, if it is common enough (top 10). Therefore it's very important to have uniform names in the material field .... bimetallic and bi-metallic would be counted separately like mentioned by cncote10. •
Being able to see a full overview of all materials could help to find those inconsistencies.
Kind of possible already. Maximizing the map and then in the addressbar change the length to for example 3000. Primitive but it does allow me to get a view with only Europe •
IIRC there was already talk about also adding values from (local) catalogues or sales. These could indeed be added by the referee, but will then also be backed up by some real world value (not just made up).

It all depends a bit. The new layout is indeed a bit more work, but gives more flexibilty. Not only can you add coin values or state the grade of the coins you have for swap, you also have the posibilty to offer coins for swap in different conditions (eg. 2 VF, 1 XF, 2 UNC) and the swapper can choose the condition he prefers. Also the comments are separate for the coin in your collection and the coins you have for swap. •
I guess just a matter of how much detail you want and if you are prepared to add that little extra time when inserting •
Don't forget that (IIRC) you loose all the extra information when switching back to the old system!
Quote: "Southern" The proposal is to add some sort of parameter/option/setting that will indicate that particular type of coin needs attention or replacement. •
It already exists. When I have a coin that is in a bad state I tick the box "I want to get this coin" and so I will see both the green tick (I already have the coin) but also a heart (I still need it). Like that I know I have to find a better graded one.
If Ösel-Wiek gets it own flag/CoA, then we should do the same for Reval and Narva I think. If we order them grouped by Swedish and Danish Estonia we could still get the best of both worlds, both the Swedish/Danish flag for the subcountry + the local flag for the issuers themselves ... •
For Reval we could then use the three leopards CoA (as seen on most coins) and for Narva the CoA with the 2 fish and 2 swords (also on the coins). Then they get a bit more of local identitiy ;)
Vote for the second option
Love the extra statistics! Values will improve as more people insert them (I'm at 34% now). •
But just wondering how "newest coin" is calculated, as it now shows the oldest of the (few) 2018 coins I have in my collection: the 2018 Russian coins minted in 2017 ... Not that I mind to much about this specific statistic, but was just wondering. Is it just the first 2018 coin (taking that 2018 is indeed the most recent year I have anything of) it finds?
Indeed. Thanks for finding clearer pictures and explaining the difference. •
Now I still have to get them. :)
The coins state 2018 as that is what people will be searching for, the issue dates are for both coins mentioned in the comments.

Hi David, •
Loud and clear question :) •
If you use the "get more coins"-link on the swap page to select more coins, the coins you already have selected in that swap are marked with a blue background. And if you by mistake have chosen the same coin twice, you can always unselect it on the swap-page. •
I love mastermind! •
2 - 8 - 15 -23
Just noticed the same (still not corrected?). The 20 centimes has an islamic date, while other Algerian coins seem to be sorted by the gregorian calender. What should it be when both are written on the coin? •
No result was found because the face value is incorrectly spelled out as on the coin (already in field lettering) instead of being written in numbers. •
Modification request sent
perfect! Thanks a lot ... :)
Pity ... 7144 sounded a lot more impressive, but I admit: I only have 1141 types to swap
Welcome out here! •
It normally means that those coins are considered more valuable by that member and will not be swapped for any coin. How "special" or how "valuable" of course depends on the swapper ...
That's only as head of the commonwealth. She will still be head of state in UK, Canada, Australia, ... as I understand. So no new portraits for now ;)
Please have a look at my list. I'm still busy with two swaps today and tomorrow, but then I can get to you. Mostly Europe. •
Some specific fields to be added (probably not in the right box, as text could be too long): •
- watermark •
- security thread •
Just wondering about "shape", I guess there might be some square notes (but that you can see from dimensions), but are there any other shapes around? Otherwise it could be left out. •
And I would use "material" instead of "paper" to designate what it is made out of. •
For layout, I would let the banknotes use up the whole width of the page and move the box below or put the two pictures underneath each other. Unlike coins they need a bit more space horizontally ... •
PS I like the totally overvalued banknote prices on NumisCorner (shouldn't that also become NotisCorner ;)) •
PPS Let's keep pushing and suggesting this, hope one day (in a future not too far away) Xavier will give in to scrap-paper collectors.
I discovered war medals are not accepted in the catalogue, so I'll just post the one I have for swap here. •
Swap value around €50. Also have a look at the rest of my swaplist please (I need 4 more coins to hit the 3000 coins barrier! Who helps?) •
All required info (and more): •
It does sound like a nice idea and I've also been thinking about it. Only, you need to be able to disable it, as quite often during a swap you get the "I don't collect by date, just pick the nicest one" and unless you ask the partner to re-pick that new specific year/mint, you'll end up having the wrong coin automatically deducted. •
It's probably useful if you also get the possibility to chance a swap-proposal more easily (eg. change year/mint) without having to go back to the swaplist.
Yes, this does sound logical to me. •
My collection is safely kept and I do not intend to get rid of those coins. The swaplist on the other hand are the coins I want to get rid of in exchange for coins that are of more interest to me. •
Therefore I am indeed not interested in how may coins I have in total, but rather in how many coins I have in my collection. •
If you want the total amount of coins, just make a little sum on the "My coins" page: •
I guess some extra statistics on "my swap list" would be fun, but I think there are more interesting suggestions to improve Numista.
Looks much better now :) •
Has been discussed before : https://en.numista.com/forum/topic62890.html •
It would be interesting to add sets, but then a separate kind of page has to be implemented in the catalogue so as not to mess up the coin-counts. Plus, then we might be able to remove all those annoying lines "Only in Sets" on the coinpages ...
I only want coins that have been on a real bottle ... they must have served their purpose ;) •
Otherwise just some NCLT ... •
I was imagining that you could find this coins under a real bottlecap if you were lucky, just another way to get people to collect. But $29.95 for a bottle cap •
Here a video to meet the "coin", just can't imagine collecting this ... the box it comes in is bigger than all my coins piled up: •
These are considered as damaged coins (PMD: post mint damage), so you won't find them in the catalogue.
Great! Now I have again more issuers than countries in my collection ;) •
thanks Xavier for the very prompt repair
So let's just blame the German post here ... letters to Latvia via Thailand is also quite a feat! ;) •
Thanks Yosufharun for your transcription and translation !!! •
I guess we'll never know where my letter went, as "Airmail" is a more likely word than "Al-Jawf" in the middle of Saudi-Arabia. Pretty weird that that stamp has no name of (likely) city or country. So unless somebody still recognises the type of the stamp, we're at a dead end. •
Your own stories of travelling letters still welcome here :-)
Just to push this question back up, before it disappears into the depths of the forum. •
Can these coinpages be joined again? Or why were they split up in the first place? •
a year a month and a few days ago ... •
It's going to be (bunny)tails of course !
I also remember reading that only the last circulating pesetas can still be exchanged, so only the more recent and bigger 200 ptas coins. The one you linked to was already taken out of circulation before the eve of the euro.
I'd love to have a look at your coins for exchange, but it seems to be empty (https://en.numista.com/echanges/membre.php?id=88827). •
You seem to have only entered coins in your collection (which you selected as not visible to other users). You should also enter the number of coins you have for swap in the "swap"box on the coinpage (in the old system that you probably have been using). •
Welcome to the community! •
This coin is marked as non-circulating : 25 Rubles 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia - Mascot •
With a mintage of 20 million and in view of the previous 25R coins, I'm guessing this is a mistake and it should be marked as circulating commemorative. •
Any confirmation from our Russian members?

With the "edit my collection" of the swappage I was able to change the status of coins (wish or not wish) without having to open the coinpage. I just noticed that these changes are not saved anymore. After the page refresh the coins are all back to the original "wish", which means I'll be getting some coins twice now •
Anyone I can sue for this? I mean, receiving the same coin twice ... it's unbearable •

I've also seen dealers selling them without coincard. I suppose to get people who don't like to collect stuff from coincards to buy them anyway for their collection, as the price was the same ... •
This price does seem kind of low though, as they were sold for €8 at the bank (wholesalers got them cheaper I've heard, but I doubt that cheap that a coin shop can sell them for €4 ...).
May I suggest a small correction? I'll do it anyway ;-) •
You are using the word vine (not wine), as a translation from the French vigne. But the image I see is a leaf, as correctly put in the year comments. The vine is the whole plant, while here we only see the leaf. •

Quote: "pnightingale" I do however know of several who have quit because their budget doesn't allow them to keep up with the sheer number of yearly issues. It's not just a Canadian thing, I know of some UK and even US collectors who are finding it hard to keep up. It's very much in line with how I remember the collapse of the stamp market. •
I think the same is happening in the EU with the commemorative €2 coins and their collectors. Ever decreasing mintages, coins only available in coincards or other blisters and hardly any coins to be found in circulation anymore ...
I would only point out A/B option in the edge field or the comment field as it applies for all years ... This to prevent the year-comment-field from being overloaded.

You can use search (top of the page) to find out more about your coin: •
More than 50 million minted, so yes a very common coin.

Never been able to spot a dodo myself ... so I can't be sure. Even specialists are not completely sure what they looked like exactly. Probably not as fat as they are normally depicted at least. •
I'm sure a lot of birds appear on coins, but as there are so many (similar) species I doubt all of them are found on coins (some species can hardly be distinguished in hand, let alone on a coin). I'll let you know when my animal collection is completed :-)
Interesting banknotes ... should we catalogue these as tokens/exonumia? They seem to have no legal tender .... :-) •
Quote: "Ecapoe" •
Now we have descriptions. If key words are in the description, then you get the coins via the searches. •
If you want to call the tags keywords, no problem. But for now we don't use keywords in the coinsheets, just descriptions. Maybe the easiest solution would indeed be to add a field for keywords, but if you can fill in any word you like ... how do you get any order in the list so you can search the keywords. If I'm looking for lifelike lions, I'd already be happy to be able to search for lions and only having to ignore the heraldic ones, it would surely save me days of searching through all coins. No system will be perfect for everyone, let's find one that's kind of useful for most. •
Furthermore, we should try to find an easier way to "tag" certain coins to a "keyword" than having to edit every single page ... imagine having to do that for every sailboat-coin in the Numista database! &bu[...]
Quote: "SRV5490"CoinFactswiki.com, Colnect.com, coinz.eu, en.coin.net and Krause all have her facing left. •
I am not trying to be difficult, but by your reasoning, "...depending on what alignment you want it to be", does that go for any coin. Or are you saying that having the coin facing down is your choice. •
Well, then all those site are not showing the coin like it is ... their bad (and numista's praise) •
What I meant with "what alignment you want it to be" is that the face could be up or down depending if you choose coin or medal alignment (but of course never facing left or right), but the way it is in the catalogue is the logical choice with the text upright. Mark that the common coins are in medal alignment and the commemorative KM#231 is in coin alignment.
Of course if we could "tag" these coins, there would be no need to include the theme in the the coin name ... •
Of course they are from Bulgaria ... my apologies •
But what about marking a proof coin as a "common coin"?
You mean the common coin •
The other one is a commemorative coin •
Quote: "nthn"Good idea, but the best case would be to have variants and comments added in the Comment section.I agree that important information should be summarized on the coinpage instead of having to read through topics and discussions.

The question is if they ALL have both versions ? •
And as well to figure out what mintage.
If we're doing suggestions to improve the map, why not include a time-function? •
Now the map just shows all aggregated currencies for certain areas. What about a function to select a certain year (1850) or period (1801-1900 or 3rd century BC) to see from what countries/territories/issuers you have coins. Especially nice for collectors who collect from certain periods, as to avoid issuers that did not exist at that specific time. It could also for example avoid the map-hierarchy problem mentioned by JustForFun and the Greenland-Denmark issue, as in 1990 Danish coins are indeed used in Greenland, but when you look at 1930 (or somewhere thereabout) it indeed had it's own currency (I think). •
It's an idea connected to this post about creating currency-timelines: https://en.numista.com/forum/topic62879.html. So it would need extending the map with periods in which the coins were in use in certain areas. There would also be some overlap of course during certain periods/areas,[...]

Also struggling with a 1981 5 öre ... so let's revive this thread to see if any new knowledge has been gathered. •
I have both 1979 and 1981 with the thin mark, neither of them seem to have 'umlauts'. So that indeed does not seem to be way to distinguish. I was wondering if they would also change the die in the middle of 1981 at the same time they change the alloy? So probably need help to distinguish brass from bronze. •
And is the KM849a from 1981 supposed to be in copper like the comment on the sheet states? Is it an error or do we get three (!) alloys for one coin? •
Help appreciated :-) •
Well, if you stop reading the thread you also won't get any new notifications. So the system already works so that you only get messages if you are still interested in the thread. •

- also the islands (Sardinia, Sicily, ... even Ireland) hardly have any shape. They are just a blob of metal. •
- also Bretagne (west coast of France) and the east coast of Spain have the wrong shape •
wouldn't give much for this coin ... definitely not €2 ... but it reminds me to keep my eyes open
Coin identifications and valuations
But only the last series of coins can be still exchanged ... so quite a lot of what you found (and is in your swap-list) already lost its monetary value long time ago: •
Got this coin last week ... and I have some doubts: https://en.numista.com/catalogue/pieces3021.html •
The coins is quite worn, but the initials are still quite readable and look more like KM (or a smudged HM?) than HM or AM. And the circles on both sides are not dentilated, but this could be due to wear. •
Also the edge is assymetrical, with the obverse being rounded and the reverse having a sharp edge. Is this normal with these coins? •
diameter: 29,4 to 29,7 mm, thickness 2.9 (weight not known), so slightly bigger and quite thicker than supposed to be •
Any ideas on authenticity are welcome!
Quote: "Essor Prof"- Who would struck a coin with a hole through the lettering in stead of in between the lettering, that's not logical at all. •
That leaves this question unanswered ... I'd be very interested in the who/why. Was it already done at the "mint" (if such thing existed with Notgeld)? Or did the townmayor take out his drill for some PMD?
Sounds like you have no coin type selected, see the messages above: •
And according to that same Krause, in 1978 only proof ( a circulation 1978 exists for KM#14 ) •
My Schön also doesn't mention 1978 ... •
Though some member seem to have this coin ... •
Google also doesn't give any km#20 from 1978 ... This coin is FAKE NEWS :-)

Quote: "BramVB"1/4 FartingLOL I'm guessing there are places where they pronounce it like that ... but since decimalization, payments in "fartings" are no longer allowed
Nono, it has to be exactly 8 birds, otherwise the coin is not LUCKY anymore ... •
and WOW!!! the seller hasn't yet discovered that if you take the position in the alphabet of every letter on this coin, multiply it with the position of that letter in the word and then add those values all up, divide that number by itself and finally add the number of days in an average week .... you get 8 ! UNBELIEVABLE !!!! This really is a LUCKY COIN. •
Pity I don't have £8888.88 ... but if anybody feels like sending it to me for free, I promise to grant you three wishes and eternal happiness ... and that at the price of a 1953 half crown (also works with 1953 farthing, half-penny or penny)
Quote: "Coinman48"I was puzzled by "truncation" in descriptions for some time and then found out it is the area below the head, so it's under the neck (like the full view of the person is truncated (cut off) with only the head showing). •
WillThanks Will •
My coin indeed has a small notch where this D is supposed to be (also slightly visible on the coin on the numista-page). •
Some better coin for sale here with a clear D on the "truncation". •
I'll add the info on both pages to clear up confusion ... but will not be able to provide any better pictures. I looked at a dozen website where we can use pictures from, but didn't find the coin. Anyone a better coin to add to https://en.numista.com/catalogue/pieces28787.html (German states - Baden KM#197.2) •
It shouldn't be too hard to add the "demonetized" field in Advanced search to get this list of coins that are still circulating. Maybe even with a date function to search for coins circulating on a certain moment in history, though at the moment that would give very incorrect results as very few demonetized dates have been inserted (sounds like a new CCIP project!) and then we should maybe also add emission dates (not always the same as the year a coin was first minted).
For €4, add it to the rest!
€3 for the Netherlands, and to support Phil
And another set for €3, I'll take it
I'll take these too for €2,5
€2 for these very special coins without reverse
By searching the database I found these from 1979 •
Mexico 100 pesos, though with lower mintage in 1979 •
France 50 francs, this high mintage in 1979 •
Anything more recent? Then it doesn't turn up with a database search ...
Quote: "Sjoelund"Hi, •
here is a documentation I made years back..... the same goes for the 1 and 5 euro-cent coins. •
OleIn 2007 there is also a mintmark on the coin, only located to the left of the date. The "#99.3" continues to be used until today (2017 set).
Lot #10 •
$20 for a just cause ... and some free worn out paper as a bonus! •
Be welcome to outbid me :-)
Indeed, these are definitely not official issues ... if they were issued at all. The picture looks more like some images photoshop'ed onto some real 2014 bimetallic 10 roubles.
Sounds fun, count me in ... •
Maybe you can also add more than 1 banknote if you feel like it, so the next person has some choice when picking a note ... or more if he/she adds at least the same amount of notes. Like this the selection of notes can increase a bit during the trip and you can decrease the possibility of receiving a note you yourself already have in abundance (especially if the trip is planned with sending on to local or neighbouring collectors). •
And BTW ... I'd be more than happy to receive some Notgeld :-)
And the seller seems to be selling 2 IDENTICAL coins ... something is definitely smelling fishy there

Quote: "Cricket"Minus whatever country that never used animals but I bet you'd be hard pressed to find somewhere modern that has never utilized a type of animal/fish/bug whatever on a coin!That would be Sweden. I don't think Sweden ever had any anmals at all on its coins. Just the King's head or his monogram on the obverse, and the denomination on the reverse.The most animal'ish coin from Sweden will be the silver 1 and 2 krona coins from Oscar II with two heraldic lions holding the shield ... that also contains 2 lions ... that's 4 in total (a group of random male lions seems to be called a "coalition") •
this might be the easiest one to obtain: https://en.numista.com/catalogue/pieces5049.html
I got a 1764A 1/12 Reichsthaler from Prussia in a lot and as these German States coins are (still) out of my field of experience, I need some assistance. •
This is the coin: •
Diameter: 22,5 mm (should be 24 ... that's 1,5 mm off) •
Thickness: 1,1 mm •
Weight not known •
Ice-test confirms silver •
In Numista the only coin for 1764A is KM#298, but the portrait is different, the 12 has a bigger curl and the flowers next to the 12 differ as well (5 petals on my coin and 4 petals on Numista). •
There is also KM#311 for the same period, but not for 1764A. The design of the 12 is the same as my coin though. Flower and portrait still different. •
In Standard Catalog of World Coins, 1701-1800 I found a third coin, that also has 1764A: KM#297. There is a picture included with flower with 4 petals and a very curly 2. •
Online I find different coins from 1764A: •
for sale on ebay, looks like KM#297 •
I have 11 coins of this type. Five of them seem to have a "fatter" font and they are all from 2009. I have "thin font"-types from 2008, 2009 and 2010. •
As I can't find any info on varieties for this coin, I'm wondering if it might also just be an optical illusion due to the wearing off of the lustre, though that would be weird that they're all from this same year. •
Please have a look, can you find the difference? •
Here the two (possible) varieties from 2009. •
Thanks for looking •
