I found this coins with my metal detector near my homecity Krakow in Poland.

There is some Russia copecks and our Poland coins.

Few of them are silver and one of them is from XVIII.


Congratulations. Nice group. Did you find all in the same place? If so, that must have been a very loud beep. ;) Many are of the period around 1870 to 1916, but there are two outliers. If you want exact id, please post the Russians and Poles separately. They go on different boards. Also, the other side of the two outliers would be interesting.

It would be natural to find Russian and Polish coins together in Krakow around 1916. Much depends on the field you found the coins (old market place, military camp etc.) and if the ground was disturbed (dug up well, excavation or destruction for new construction) or not.

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


Thank you, I found it on two different places few of them near my city in wood.  In this area there is many Russian coins and strange about it I dont find anythink German. Few weeks ago my friend found China Kirin from 1903 dont know how it is possible maybe some soldier have it. I will make photo and post about it separartely.



The Kirin coin is a war souvenir from 1905.   The major land battles were fought in Liaoning Province, but close to Kirin, and Russian land forces probably passed through it.


Nice find!! Are you going to try to clean any of the copper coins? If so,  what are you planning to use?
