Here's one for you. The material is a brassy color. The obverse has a young woman planting shrubs? trees? The unit is "1". On the reverse there is a heraldic shield- the top left and bottom right have some kind of lion thing, the top right and bottom left have a double-barred cross. On top of the shield are the letters "CSFR" and on the bottom is the date, 1991.

I'm not gone, I'm just lurking.

CSFR = Czecho and Slovakia Federation Republic (1990-1993) which is post communism, pre-seperation. Prior to 1990 the country was known officially as the CSSR = Czech and Slovakia Socialist Republic. Today of course there are two seperate countries.

This is a good thread!! Doesn't anyone find unknown coins anymore, or is it that Cerulean isn't posting at the moment?

The portrait looks like Trajan. He was one of the more famous Roman Emporors and ruled from 98 until his death in 117. He was a very prolific coin issuer. I have a few silver denari from his rule in my collection. I can't make out the lettering on the outer edge of the coin. The letters are usually short for latin phrases about the emporor.. such as PP meaning Pater Patrie.. "father of his country"

Can you show us a pic of the reverse of the coin?

Neat coin! If you can read the letters on the obverse I can probably give you the translation.

I suppose the portrait kind of looks like Hadrian too.. he was another bearded fellow. But if it was Hadrian it would have to be 117 or later. He was the successor to Trajan. If you can make out the lettering on the obverse or blow up the pic maybe we can figure out which one it is.

i thought that coin was bimetallic, with a copper core in an iron ring. Oh, wait... that's just the background showing through the holder.

The ruler pictured does look like Trajan, but I can't tell much else from the scans. Is that a boar or a wolf (hound?) on the reverse?

Wildwinds has a great database for ancient coins -- here's their Trajan page, with links to databases on other sites as well. (The Perseus one is really nice, because you the coins are sorted by composition.)

Wow ant, that site is great.

Cerulean, that's the black piece from an airtight to hold the coin in place inside the flip.

I'll try to decipher the writing for you. Part of the coin was corroded away.

Any help on this one? I actually found the listing in my world coin book long ago, and didn't put the coin in a 2x2 immediately, so it got misplaced, and then I of course forgot.

I have more coins to post if this one gets attributed.
Thanks for any help.

Old Canadian and Newfoundland coins have a similar vine design on the reverse. My first thought was Bahrain but the shape on the middle of the coin (top photo) does not match that country. At any rate the script looks more Indian. I'm really intetested to see what it is.

I can't believe I just noticed this thread. I can help with the ID's for sure.

You must be logged in to see this link. here is what I'm talking about - similar vines to an old Canadian or Newfoundland penny. Someone modified the coin pictured on the linked site if you look closely.
