If you have a coin that you want to have identified or evaluated, you are more than welcome to post it in this forum for help from our members, but please read these basic guidelines before posting (French version here), and please stick to them as much as possible to ensure optimal feedback!

For all threads, please:
-Have as explicit and unambiguous a title as possible (do NOT put things like "Help!", or "Identification please", and do NOT post in all caps!), preferably in English, so members specialising in an area can find and respond to your request more easily.


An example of a bad title.

An example of a good title.


-Unless you have multiple similar coins, start a new thread if you wish to ask about another coin. Conversely, don't start multiple threads for the same couple of coins.

-Always include any known information like the weight, diameter and metal (WDM) of a coin (whenever possible), and especially for identifications, also include anything you can see/read on the coin itself. The more information the better; provenance (where you got/found the coin) is also relevant.

-Include high quality photos of both sides of the coin, and if relevant, the side as well. Please also leave a space between each photo so that they may be enlarged by other members.

-Be patient, and polite. Members use their own time and effort to try and help you with your coin, while manners cost you nothing.

-When your enquiry has been resolved, please thank the member(s) who helped you, and click the "solved" button on the upper left of the thread to mark it as such.

The "solved" button, circled.

Thank you and Good Luck!

Hi Everybody!
I've bought a Romania coin of 20 lei from 1942 (KM62) today at a flea market. According to all the forums and websites this coin was made of zink, but the one I bought looks like it is made of bronze. Is that possible?
Thanks!

​Hi Attila!

It sounds like maybe your coin has been plated? Either way, you should start a new thread in this forum with pictures of the coin rather than posting here. ;)

Thanks!

Are we allowed to post coins that aren't ours but we are considering buying so their authenticity can be verified?

Please help me. I have been capturing coins via Catalogue, country. I then noticed that one can capture multiple coins via Numisdoc, so I captured 26 items. When I went to see if they were included on my previous list this list had disappeared and was replaced by the 26 items I had just captured. Please tell me how I can include the new list with the previous one I did?
