Hong Kong 20 cent
« on: December 17, 2019, 09:32:45 PM »
Found this in one of my old helmet bags.  Cute little bugger :-)  10mm and 40gr.  1994 Hong Kong 20 cent piece and she's a little gem.

This should be 18 mm and 2.59 grams.
Hong Kong never had 40 gr coin

My scale needs re-calibrating, sorry about that.  The mm however is with a stick.  I'd give or take a few mm because of the weave :-)

Your scale seems to be exact (in grains).
40 grains = 2.59 grams.

I didn't even realize that grains was a stetting!  I blame the cat ;-)
