What ya guy's think? You like? Grabed this guy out of the 10c bin! I also snagged a 1951 S/S 50c but will post that in another thread shortly!












Would it be ok to oust this in the US coins forum or should we just leave it here?

    The real question is:

    "Does anyone who collects modern Spanish coins care about double dies?" I have no idea if they do.

    All glory is fleeting.

    I assume they are fairly common then on modern Spanish coins? Wich if they do or don't It is my first find out of a foreign bin. In Case I had to share

    Nice find! The doubling is very obvious, very cool.

    Doubled dies are not common from any European mint in the second half of the 20th century. However, as someone else mentioned above, interest in such errors is the issue.

    I gotcha! Well I do value the insight! I do not collect world coins but for a bin at 10c a pop it will keep me busy.

    Take them all day at 10 cents lol. Rough estimate of value to a specialist... $10-$20.

    Those 10c - 25c bins can be a lot of fun.

    Should probably start your own thread for that. As a general rule, if it does not have a denomination on it then it's a modern token and has little or no actual gold content. Some exceptions of course, but can't say much else from your photos.

    The "California Gold" items were heavily reproduced as tourist items through the 60's and beyond. If you do a google search for California gold, you will find a couple sites where someone has catalogued them all. They were tourist pieces, nothing more, but some are scarce.
