This is a 1552 Hungarian Denar I just picked up.

I really like the older hammered coins and have admired them for some time. This one felt right to add to the collection.

This coin is for Emperor Ferdinand I:

This is a general new purchases thread so feel free to post any new coin you have :)

    Awesome British crown for George Louis, or King George!

    A modern

    Prost!

    Why step over the dollar to get to the cent? Because it's a 55DDO.

    Edmund the Magnificent penny ruled most of England 939 to 946.

    Eadwig, ruled an ever decreasing portion of England 955 to 959. This one of the really tough ones.

    This completes my run of British kings from Alfred the Great to Queen Elizabeth II. Something from Charles III will probably be next.

    My friend is doing a set similar to yours. He got quite a bunch going way back. Very cool. 👍

    Thanks! I’m working on a British sixpence major design type set. Defining that set has been tough, as there have been tons of minor design changes through the centuries, and it's not always easy to draw the line between what I would consider a minor or major change.

    Anyway, I would described the set as "A major design type set of sixpences from every British monarch who produced them. It includes sixpences from any country that had the British monarch's portrait on the coin. It spans almost 500 years from Edward VI to Elizabeth II!

    Currently, the set requires 56 coins. I've got 18 so far. Most of those are in NGC holders, but I do really like those PCGS TrueViews!

    @Bob13 definitely a cool type. I believe that the one that I had a few years back was likely one that you later saw pop up with CRO. Some of these accounting tokens can get pretty in depth in their design and hidden meaning. I also remember seeing this one about a month back and was close to pulling the trigger on it. Nice pick up!

    Picked this up at auction recently in raw form. One of the rarest Ausdtralian pennies after the 1930. Mintage is believed to be less than 30k. Tied equal 4th highest graded PCGS. Population 2/3

    That's really cool @teslasghost! Congrats on making such a rare condition rarity!

    The ".//" after the date is really interesting. It looks like a way of indicating "Dot above the top scroll" in short hand notation.
