Double headed coins (03/26/2007)

Have you ever heard of a wheat penny that has the wheat on both sides? Both sides are the same and there is no date on the coin. Has there ever been a misprint of this sort?

answer of sammler.com:

Yes, such misstruck double headed coins do exist! But most of them are fakes. The Department of Treasury writes: "It is very rare for the United States Mint to produced double-headed coins, because coins are struck on both sides simultaneously with two different dies of different physical dimensions. Most double headed coins found at trade shows are novelties produced from two coins."

But if they are authentic they have a very high value!

Gulden and Florin (04/01/2005)

I am doing genealogical research on my ancestors from Greding, Bavaria. Records indicate that inheritances were paid to the sons in “Gulden” up until about 1850. After that it changes to “fl.”, which I am assuming is a florin. Is that correct? Are these coins silver or gold? Are they of equivalent values? What value would they have back then? Could you please post a picture of them? Thanks in advance for your help.
Mit freundlichen Grüßen aus St. Louis, Missouri; John

E-Mail

answer of sammler.com:

The Gulden was in former times a gold coin. Later it became a silver coin. The Bavarian Gulden 1837 - 1871 was a silver coin with a weight of 10.6 g. 2 Thaler were 3 1/2 Gulden.
The Florin was in former times an english gold coin. 1849 - 1946 it was an english silver coin. 1 Florin = 2 Two Shillings.
In Austria / Hungary also a florin silver coin was issued. It was called Forint.

Prussian Medal with Emperor Friedrich III. (02/25/2005)

I found this old coin or medal in my father's things and was wondering if it has any worth. Thanks, Suzanne Marsh Eugene, Oregon, USA

Inscription: 18 Oktober 1823 / 15.Juni 1888
Lerne leiden ohne zu klagen, Friedrich

E-Mail

sammler.com:
This is a medal which was issued 1888 for the death of emperor Friedrich III who ruled Prussia and the Second German Empire only for 100 days.
Friedrich was a liberal emperor. It was a tragedy for Germany that he ruled Germany only for such a short time because his successor and relative young son and imperialist Wilhelm II was one of the main responsible persons for the beginning of World War I 26 years later.
Values of such medals: about 20 - 50 US$

Austria: 1 Florin 1891 / 5 Corona 1900 / 2 Corona 1912 (10/04/02)

I have 3 coins from, I believe, Austria. They are dated 1891, 1900, and 1912. Man on the front of all three, two of them with a "laurel crown" and one without. The coin dated 1891 has "HVNGAR.BOHEM.GAL. LOD.ILL.REX A.A.1891" with the face value marked as "1FL" Does this sound like anything??? The later dated coins do not have the same thing on the back. The one dated 1900 has "QVINQVE.CORONA" and the oned dated 1912 has "II CORONA MDCCCCXII" . Any information you could give would be appreciated. 
Thankyou.

I HAVE A GERMAN COIN THAT A FAMILY MEMBER RECEIVED WHILE IN THE WAR IN GERMANY I WOULD LIKE TO KNOW HOW MUCH IT IS WORTH. ON ONE SIDE IT HAS IOSEPHVS II.D.G. ROMIMP SEMPAVG AND SOME KIND OF SYMBOL,THE OTHER SIDE HAS;X EINE FEINE MARCH 1768 AT THE TOP, NURNBERG S.R AT THE BOTTOM, IN THE MIDDLE HAS A PICTURE OF A CITY  WITH A SHINING STAR OR FIREWORKS ABOVE IT. PLEASE LET US KNOW AS SOON AS YOU CAN.
THANKS VICKI THOMPSON

E-Mail: kthompson@crawdat.com 

answer of sammler.com:

This coin with the denomination of 1 Thaler (X Eine Feine Mark = 1 Thaler) was issued 1768 by the South German town Nürnberg .
The Free City of Nürnberg had the right to struck coins from 1376 until 1806. 
1806 Nürnberg lost its independancy and was made part of Bavaria.
 IOSEPHVS II was Emperor of the States Union Holy Roman German Empire (He was also emperor und ruler of Austria) and was so formally the head of Nürnberg. But Nürnberg and the other German Sates within the Holy Roman German Empire were de facto independant states.
The city which is pictured on the coin is Nürnberg, which was for a long time German second largest city.
The "FIREWORKS" are not fireworks but this triangle symbolizes the holy trinity (God, Jesus, The Holy Ghost).

I think your family member came at the end of world war II to Nürnberg which was occupied on 4/20/1945 by the allied forces and a lot of US American soldiers were stationed here after the war. 1946 was also in Nürnberg the famous war crimes trial.

And now the approx. value of your coin depending on grade: f 100 $, vf 180 $, xf 300 $

P.S. ;-) Nürnberg is the town where I was born, Thomas

Do you know of a coin that is: 20 Franc, dated 1371, with the word Maroc?>
I haven't seen the coin as of yet, but I know it exists. I have been searching the www, and haven't found any francs dated that far back. If you could give me info on where to search, I would appreciate it.

5 and 2 Reichsmark, Paul von Hindenburg (12/26/99)

I recently made an unqualified impulse buy of some old German coins at an auction.
They appear to be a silver alloy, dated 1936-1939. They all have engraving on the sides (which I can't decipher; it seems to be German language words in a kind of Gothic printing). Four are large (about the size of a U.S. Susan B. Anthony dollar) and show the number 5 on the back, with the words "Deutsche Reich" and years of 1936, 1937 and 1938 (qty. 2).
Three are smaller, showing the number 2 and also "Deutsches Reich" 1938 and 1939 (qty 2). The face of all these coins show a man's picture, with the legend "Paul von Hindenburg 1847-1934" on them. Are these worth any serious amount of money?

2 Reichspfennig 1937 G (10/19/99)

I have a coin, that I believe is from the Hitler period.  It is dated 1937,   on the front it has a 2 in the center and on the bottom round there are two leaves (tops out) with a "G" in the center of the two leaves.  Over the top round is the word "Reichspfennig".  On the back is an eagle (head to the left) perched, with wings at full spread, on what seems to be a wreath of leaves like that on the front of the coin (but in a full circle).  In the middle is a swastica.   On the bottom round of the back of the coin is the word Deutsches Reich, with the date 1937 following these words.  The coin is in fair shape, with a small scratch on one side.  I have been unsuccessful at finding any information about this coin.  I would appreciate any assistance you would be able to provide.

answer of sammler.com

The commemorative version of this coin was issued 1934 for the 1st anniversary of the Nazi Rule.
1933 when Hitler became Reichskanzler the German Parliament the Reichstag made its first meeting after the elections of 1933 in this church with the old president Hindenburg and the Reichskanzler Hitler. This was a symbolic meeting where Hindenburg represents the old power of the German Second Reich under Kaiser Wilhelm II and Hitler represents the new power of the Third Reich. This was also the end of the first German democratic system, the Weimarer Republik and the beginning of a very cruel time in Germany and later for much other countries which ended in war and chaos.
The commemorative issue has also two small swastikas on the front and the date of this meeting: 21. März 1933
Your version was issued for the normal circulation.

BALA*RAMA*VARMA*MAHARAJA*of*TRAVANCORE (9/6/99)

Hi. My name is April Brown. I have a few coins that I've had for about 5 years now, from my grandma. I've looked around for the value of these coins, but no one seems to be familiar with them. The first has on the top, it  looks like, a man, or soldier with a helmet with feathers on the top; what's written on it is,"BALA*RAMA*VARMA*MAHARAJA*of*TRAVANCORE". On the back, it looks like it's a sea shell of some kind; it has flowers surrounding it; what's written is,"ONE CHUCKRAM". It has something else written on it, but is in another language. It has no date or initials of anyone. My second one, on the front, has a woman, possibly Queen Elizabeth; what's written on it is,"+ELIZABETH*H*DEI*GRATIA*REGINA*F:D:". On the back is the picture of Christopher Columbus' ship; it says,"HALF PENNY" from 1967. And finally my third one on the front has the same woman from the last coin I told you about, but she looks older and she has a crown on; it says,"ELIZABETH*II D*GREG*F*D*1971". On the back, I can't tell what it is exactly, it looks like some kind of bird cage with chains hanging on both sides; it says,"NEW PENNY" on the top, and the bottom has a "1". I don't know what country they came from, and if you have any information about any of them, please let me know.

Thank You, April Brown
