Your oldest and newest coin can be based on purchase date or date on the coin. :smile:

In recent years I have been working on a set of British coins - at least one coin from each king or queen who issued pieces that are collectible. I am also collecting at least one coin for each Roman emperor from Julius Caesar to ... ?

    Old one is an 8R cob. Cert Verification says dated 1701-1733.
    Date might be partly visible as 1711?

    For a narrowly focused half dime collector like myself the answer is pretty straightforward. My oldest coin is a 1794 half dime (I wish I could say that it was a 1792 half disme, but alas it is not), and my 'newest' coin is an 1873 half dime. I do have a few 'modern' Lincoln cents and Jefferson nickels, but I do not consider them part of the collection

    Oldest (because you can't go much older than dawn of coinage)

    Newest (not quite, but since it just arrived a couple of days ago):

    @Weiss
    I know nothing about the first coin but the second is very nicely designed :smile:

    It's a 1983 silver "Onza" from Mexico. It was one of the first really successful silver bullion one troy ounce coins, beating the Silver American Eagle by a few years. Proofs of these piece were made in very small numbers. This was a recent Heritage win.

    1787 Fugio PCGS F-15 is my oldest, (raw or certified)

    2015 Lincoln Cent PCGS MS-66 is my newest certified, (though I could pull out some pocket change if you'd like). Gotta have that new "shield reverse"!!

    Well, I was trying to go for the over and the under on this hand, but I can't beat Lydian gold.


    The Ancient Egypt - Ptolemy II or Ptolemy III (285 to 246 B.C. or slightly later), AE, 46.9mm, 73.3 grams. Obv, Head of Zeus Ammon, dotted border; rev, Eagle on thunderbolt, looking back, wings open, dotted border. Obv. Cracks, edge a bit porous. This coin comes nicer, but this is a large specimen. These photos are more red/yellow than actual coin.

    U.S.A. ATB Quarter Dollar, 2017, Frederick Douglas homestead, Cu-Ni, 24.3 mm, 5.67 grams. I received this coin in change at the doughnut shop today, 09/27/2017

    Great thread!

  • clarkbar04clarkbar04 Posts: 4,926 ✭✭✭✭✭

    Since I restarted collecting about 3 years ago, this is the first I added to my "permanent" collection.

    Last newp I imaged was this 42-S walker I bought raw. Not many of these you can see where the thumb and forefinger separate.

    Here's the Roman coin. I don't think anyone needs to see the Proof set.
