I don't know. I had a lot of fun finding other people's coins, so I found a few I didn't know and offered the challenge to you...

Wow, those were both really quick. And I didn't mean it was easy, but rather that you guys are making these all SEEM too easy. One more. Can't make it all out, but here's some of it... obverse says something something KONIG VON something. Reverse might say MUNS... but most is unreadable. But the date is clearly 1809. Nickel size, very thin.

It was buried in the US numismatics area. Now that we have a world coins section I thought it fit a lot better here, so I moved it.

Close enough to help me find it! This is a Bavarian 6 kreuzer! And guess what? This bad boy is SILVER!!! Well, it's 333 fine, or .0289 ASW. Well, it was 200 years ago. I think a lot of that silver is gone now. But still, it's 200 year old silver in a junk bin! Nine cents for this "treasure!" Now I'm over to the "silver in the junk bin" thread...

Ummm... I think you may have four different coins there.
Picture 1 is a 1977 New Zealand dollar. MN46. Copper-nickel.
Picture 2 is a 1978 Guernsey 25 pence. KM32. Copper-nickel.
Picture 3 is a 1947 South Africa crown. KM31. 800 fine silver, .7274 ASW.
Picture 4 is a 1904 Malaysia - Straits Settlements dollar. KM25. 900 fine silver, .7799 ASW. It should have Edward VII on it. :)

Were you joking or do you have coins which have been soldered together?

but then again ive never came across something like this so not really sure where and what to look for :)

top one weighs 19.1 grams
bottom one weighs 20.8 grams

Or they are Chinese fakes.

They have notoriously produced a lot of "mule" copies willy-nilly.

How/where did you acquire these?

i would have gotten these in a group of mixed world coins bought off ebay or some other company.

i've had them pbly 5 years or so.

i was 99% sure they were altered - just wanted to see if anyone had seen anything like them.

One more. It was labeled Austria when I bought it, but as far as I know, it's not. It's approximately dime size. Any help?

Dangit! I thought I had looked that up! Good job, Bluegill...
Here's one more. Can anyone tell me much about these? They all vary in size and thickness so much, it's hard to believe they're all the same denomination...

Uth, the ones in the bottom left look like modern repros that I find all the time. The others appear "real". I keep all these I find together in a box hoping someday I'll find someone who knows how to read them. Some can be very, very old; China used money like this for centuries.

I didn't bother to come back and say thanks to the several who helped. Appreciate it.
Are there any other opinions on those holed coins? I kinda wondered about them with the vast difference in thickness and general wear... all from coins that came from the same source. Years ago they were all in 2x2s from the same guy, and they said Annam and Sapeque or something like that on them. Same handwriting was on all of them, and they came to me from my grandpa who had probably bought some guy's collection and pulled a few pieces for himself and gave me most of the rest.

Here's another...

I have unintentionally moved or deleted several of the pictures I had on this thread, and noticed it today when I came to post this coin. I will try to get them back up here... so this thread can be used as a reference. Thanks for all your help so far!
