Unidentified coins / Re: Indo-Scythian. Ruler?
« Last post by THCoins on July 06, 2020, 10:00:05 PM »
The name of the ruler in Greek is off flan, because this should be below the horseman. Because the horseman holds a spear, this specimen most likely is a type traditionally attributed to Azes I, or Azilizes.

Hi Hitesh !
Agree this is a billon drachm in the name of Azes II. On the reverse is standing Zeus, holding Nike. This makes this a Senior-105 type. But there are a lot of subtypes of this. That you can not find a perfect match could also be because this may be a posthumously struck type. The posthumous issues are mostly characterized by a gradual degeneration of the design and legend. On this one there is "AZOY" for Azes below Zeus. Reading clockwise from the bottom should be "Basileus" in Greek. Here there is an error, because the initial B is missing, or Azoy misses a letter.

(West) Germany and the good, old Deutsche Mark.  ;D
1, 2, 5, 10 and 50 Pfennig. No 20 Pfennig coin.

Of course. How could I have forgotten? I was there a few times back in the 1970s.

See the image in reply 3.

I would think that the people getting HME / (Cincinatti Milacron) machines to South Korea would have been from Birmingham, England.

How many circulation coinages do you know that jump from a subunit of 10 to 50? Can you think of any others right now?

Italy, Malta, Cyprus and modern Greece / 1/2 Baiocco - Alexander VII
« Last post by scorpio on July 06, 2020, 08:49:28 PM »
An interesting coin I recently purchased inexpensively. Alexander VII, whose original name was Fabio Chigi, was born in Sienna, Republic of Florence in 1599. He died  in 1667 in Rome. He was Pope from 1655 to 1667. He was also a Grandnephew of Pope Paul V.

The obverse of the coin shows the quartered papal arms with keys and tiara above. The reverse is badly damaged but would show mezo/baioc/co surrounded by a laurel wreath. A few of the letters can still be seen.
