Tunisia 1960 5 Millim
« on: January 13, 2010, 09:07:45 PM »
Here's one that I have no idea about.

The metal seems to be aluminium and the diameter is about 24mm.

I wonder how long this will (won't) take to identify.

Please, if any of the coins that I show as 'unknown' are of any value, let me know.

Bill.

EDIT: Title.

This is a 5 millim from Tunisia, KM#282. The value is likely less than 1.

BTW, if you have Plant, this is a great coin to practice reading Arabic on. Every letter is clear.

An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.
