Let me be the first to add coins to the thread!

I bought a 1889 (Meiji 22) 5 sen cupro nickel coin of Japan on September 1st.



Also a 1 sen dated Meiji 10 (1877). The 5 sen was like the size and weight of an American nickel

Not rare pieces, but very interesting and my first older Japanese coins (Well before Nickel 100 Yens)

Also bought a AU 1945 NZ penny and halfpenny and a few other coins I will show a bit later.

Mods I apologise if I jump the gun here, just wanted to show my new purchases and century old Japanese coins are pretty interesting :O
I love coins, both old and precious and also change coins. If its round and shiny, it will garner my interest. I also collect stamps and have an abiding interest in History, Archaeology,  and Social Issues.  I also worship the musical god Prince.

I like that 5 sen, so often it's the simplest designs that are the most striking.

Indeed simple but nice design, I am only missing the key date and will mostlikely never get my hands on one.
Also got some more of the first modern issues:
5 Sen - Meiji 3 (1871)

20 Sen - Meiji 3 (1871) with a error (reverse motive under obverse motive)

20 Sen - Meiji 4 (1872)

50 Sen - Meiji 3 (1871)

but in the case of the 5 and 50 sen I am still not 100% convinced that they are authentic and the relative crappy worksmanship for the early coins dosn't make it easier.

Despite a few months back i made the decision to stop buying... had an oportunity to get some stuff for a really good price, so... here i go:

3 from Vatican (the lower one, its not in the best shape, but, it came for free):



Easy one from Tunisia:



A few Spanish - Spanish states:



A few falus form Morocco (and 50 centimes 1918 form France):



One extra falus from Morocco:


Edit:

Some Thai ones came too, the one in the middle is silver (didnt know but, for this five, I paid for all of them less than half the value of the silver, lucky me :O)

​Was pretty sure these commems were not silver, so don't want to burst your bubble..but ;). Nonetheless, they're very nice. I myself have the full series of 1/2/5/10/20/50/100 bhat commems.

​Got them today, they look nicer in real life, the 1 sen is really nice, the reverse is probably good Fine, but the obverse is full VF with lots of detail on the dragon. It's amazing these advanced coins came from a place that had cash style coins with holes and gold oblongs and silver triangles in medieval style 20 years earlier (Mon, Kobans, ryos).

The one sen is quite large too, about 28mm in size. Am interested in an affordable type set (1 Rin up to 1 Yen), the gold Yen coins are pretty expensive, but also very beautiful.

Got more coins this week, 2 x £2 coins of UK with the 2004 Trewithick train one and lots of British and NZ change, along with a silver war nickel of America.

Just started to get back into collecting after a bit of a hiatus. Been reading quite a bit about WW1 as of late so I thought it'd be nice to get some coins from the era.

I think the French 10 Centimes are absolutely gorgeous. I'm trying to complete the set. Same with the 2 lire Italian coins. That quadriga design is great. Really, just about every country had great designs in the early 1900s, there's almost too many things to choose from lol. Loving the 10 year anniversary of peace pattern as well. Really cool large coin.

​In Thailand here those coins would sell for 2-3 Euro a piece. Yes that was a good buy from my point of view.

I recently purchased 400 2×2 Flips from a Flea Market, at that Flea Market, I also brought a coin from Iran that was minted in 2010, a badly beaten One Florin from 1921, and around 12 more coins I brought from there, I also got 2 new coins from Cuba that the school nurse gave me recently at my High School, one of them is a 50 centavo coin and a 10 centavo coin, that's what I got at this month!
