    What's your oldest coin?

    I thought this would be a cool idea for a thread. Anyways, what is your oldest coin. Also, your coin does not need to be American, it can be foreign or colonial.

    My oldest coin a worn, and dateless, 1655-1658 Louis XIV French Liard.

    Note: the coin farthest to the bottom of the photo, that is not corroded is not my coin, but a reference of how a non-dug example of that coin looks.

    Wow, that's very rare coin. For me, coins with a mintage under 2 million are scarce. My rarest coin is an 1861 New Brunswick Half Cent, with only 5,000 known to exist. The problem is, it was found in such bad condition, that part of the edge of the coin crumbled off, and I decided to super glue it back on, don't ask me what I was thinking lol.

    Apparently I have a magnetism for English things as my oldest silver is an 1816 English Shilling and my second oldest coin is the old head version of a KG II 1/2 penny. Oh, btw...my sweetie, she's English too lol! I guess I shouldn't have mentioned her in my " old " finds though, huh?

    Edward I silver penny, c. 1289

    I did not find it; but a detectorist from England posted his find years ago on another MD site and I posted that if I had found something that old I'd be in the clouds for years and how lucky he was to live where there was so much history. No one else posted on his thread. We struck up a private topic and he sent me the coin!

    America was founded by tough hell-raisers. Rugged citizens who evaded taxes, spoke strongly against tyranny, grew tobacco, brewed beer, distilled spirits, and smuggled weapons. And it will be saved by those same types of citizens.

    Wow, nice 1694 copper. The first coin looks to be Roman, I do not which ruler
    it is, but maybe someone will help. It could be anywhere from around 100 ad to around 400 ad, but knowing the ruler will narrow it down a lot

    I'm still not in the 1800's club. My oldest coin to date is a 1916 Mercury dime and no it's not a D. She is half bald but still a beauty in my eyes.
