Okay so I've had this coin in my collection for quite a few years now, although I don't actively collect coins, just kinda have that bag of coins that I don't want to part with. Would be awesome if any of you could provide any information on it as many of BHW members are bi-lingual I figured this would be a good place to ask. I appreciate your time, thanks in advance. :D

You of all people... I wouldn't expect you as a coin expert.

Yes he would definitely be on my list at #1 of 'no way he would know that freaking coin' not even kidding :)

Just don't vision vegas sipping tea thinking 'ah Its an old UK pound the oak tree represents England'
 
Bro that coin is worth some money I bet you....Put it on ebay!!!!! lol

That's not it.

The coin is from the Bar Kochba revolt era. (Jewish revolt from Rome)

Go here and scroll down to the the 30s:


They're actually worth a good sum of money too.

Damn, well thanks for the input. Now I just have to find out what to do next, any suggestions? Gotta see if it's authentic and find a buyer. No idea how the rare coin trade works.

:thinking: :thinking: :thinking: :thinking:
 
I would suggest finding out if the antique roadshow goes anywhere near your area, they can appraise it for you, unfortunately, unless above the grapes (or whatever) was rubbed off, it matches none of those images at all, there is absolutely no way any of those coins could be the one in question due to this fact, but like I said, only unless the above the grapes was worn down, Look for lack of text above the grapes in the images of those other coins.

There is for sure no markings above the grapes that were rubbed off. However I don't think that there was only the one design posted on that site. Would have to do like you said and take it to someone who knows more about it. Just don't know anyone who does, so I guess I'll have to look someone up. :p

Ya, it's most likely from that era, which would make it quite old, but just by using that site, and a few that I've checked out, you're going to have to find someone who knows much more about that particular era for coins, you may have a very very rare coin in your possession due to the lack of imagery available on the internet about that particular stamp.
 
@ Vegas:
Here is the detail:
British One Pound coin - 1987: Oak tree in a coronet, representing England. Looks slightly different from the original though.

Sorry to cause you a loss of million dollars. :) The original looks slightly different though. This one seems like a counterfeit:eek:!


This is not the coin at all, your missing key details about the coin in the OP, for example, it does not have "One Pound" written on it for 1, for 2, it's not even remotely circular, which suggests pre-press technology. I would say the coin in question is no newer than 1000 years old.
 
Thanks for all the input this far everyone. For anyone interested, I have found another site that has several pictures that are very similar to this one, you can ever hit next page at the bottom and there is 3 or so pages of them.

Also I emailed 3 local rare coin dealers with the pictures to see if they have any more input. I'll keep you all posted.
 
Ask these people, they have several ancient coins of Roman, Judean era coins but the images are a pain to find. If you send them the image of your coin, they can help. It's an auction site I believe.

Keep it, don't sell it! However if you want to sell it already, know that people would want to rip you off.

P.S.
I only have golden Napoleon coin from 1850.

I don't know what coin this is. I was a numismatic dealer for a few years but I was dealing paper money only. However, even if it is 1000 years old (and I pretty much doubt it is ) it doesn't have to worth some huge money. I have some coins for Ottoman period and Republic of Ragusa that are hundreds of years old and none of them worth more than 20-30 dollars, even the gold ones.

Age is not the main factor of coin or banknote value. Rarity is. There are for example many Russian banknotes that are 100 years old but their numismatic value is few dollars. And there are some banknotes few years old that worth hundreds of dollars.

Anyway, OP, I suggest you to go to some local numismatic meeting ( I am pretty sure there are many of them in big towns) and ask someone to help you. There are many coins encyclopedia guys out there, someone would help you. Or try searching Google groups, many of collector enhthusiasts are having their groups there.
