A little game, ends of centuries

10 posts
Hello,
I just got a nice 1500 coin and it gave me the idea of a little game. Let's select in our albums coins for the turns of centuries, 2000, 1900, 1800 etc (the number you want - have, one per century), and present our nicest or preferred series. It has to be your photos of you coins. Non gregorian dates count but once converted.

It will last a few months until enough people have played and there will be a vote and a present to the winner.
You can change your pictures whenever you want. Only one per member. Done also on Fr side and only one vote.

I start:

Fantastic idea; is there any minimum amount (e.g. 2, 3 dates) to participate? And can we change our entries if we get a really good 1700 coin tomorrow, for example?

In any case, here are my best ones- I won't win, but still fun to participate! ;)


2000- United States 1/4 Dollar (Maryland)


1900- Ethiopia 1 Birr - Menelik II


1800- United Kingdom 1 penny- George III (Maundy issue)


1700- Great Britain 1/2 penny - William III



Looking forward to seeing @phfoticus' entries. :*
Yes, you can put the number you want, voters will judge.

Yes, you can change till the game is closed. Undefined deadline so far.

​Looks like my only coin for 1500 and my best coin for 1800 are already in this thread, I'll have to start at 1600 and use a US half cent for 1800.

​Well it does not really matter if someone else has already posted the coin. They are all different and for some dates, it is indeed difficult. The set matters.

​Not bad coins at all. :love: I keep meaning to expand into pre-industrial European and colonial coinage but I still have so many coins from the 19th and early 20th centuries to get.....

Also, I thought you had a 1500 posted on the How far back can we go? thread where you got us back to 1497 almost single handedly?

The coin I have for 1500 is the 1 batzen from Salzburg, but in much worse condition than the coin from Ecapoe. ​
Just for fun.

2000 : Australia, 50 pence - Royal Visit


1900 : Venezuela, 1/4 bolivar


1800 : Austria - 1 kreuzer


1700 : Russia, 1 kopeck


The conversion of the date for this one is a bit tricky :
- The year is written in cyrilic numerals "CH" with a tilde above (on the observe).
- The "H" shaped character should be read as a "И"
- The date uses the old calendar here, so we should read "҂ЗСИ" instead (the "҂З" never appears on those coins but is implied)
- "҂З" = 7000 ; С = 200 ; И = 8 . That means this coins was minted in 7208 in the ancient slavic calendar.
- This calendar starts at 5508 BC (date of the "Creation of the World / Star Temple"), so we should retract 5508 to have the conversion in the Gregorian.
- 7208 - 5508 = 1700.

Fortunately, it's the last year minted with this calendar and we can find gregorian dates for the year 1700 as well (with the inscription "҂aψ" instead).

I don't have any coins dated in 1600 nor 1500.

1400 : Mamluk sultanate, 1 fals

Year [8]02 AH in the Hijri (islamic / musulman) calendar.
The date is written in full on the reverse side (left of the chalice : "ithnatain / sanat" in a simple and kinda degenerated calligraphy, as usual).
Another example here for this date : https://www.zeno.ru/showphoto.php?photo=144588

It's a lunar calendar, so it doesn't perfecly fit in gregorian as the year started the 3rd September 1399 and ended the 22th August 1400.
