What is your oldest coin that you have

probably one of the oldest coins in the world

  • Sorry, I'm new to the forum and I don't know if someone can help me here. I bought 2 gold coins 20 years ago and as a bonus I was given a coin. Some time ago I took a closer look at this coin and found that it must be very, very old and that it obviously consists of electrons 18 grams and a diameter of 31 mm. Where can I turn to get an expertise? I haven't found a comparable piece anywhere. I know that it was found near Ephesus.
  • You are right with me
    I have not found a comparable piece anywhere.


    If your "bought" ones are from the same source, just throw them away and think no further.

  • Great ... I know the coin ... was 912 a.C. struck by King Asshole in his coin from Ibidumm.

    Consists of electron, .... the ancient forerunner of BitCoin.

    Value approx. 312.76 fantastic billions to quote Dagobert Duck.

  • Hello, you obviously don't take me seriously. I really have the coin and would have liked to know where to turn to find out its age, texture, etc.

    Hello,

    Unfortunately, I have to correct you a little: If you had looked closely at the coin image, you would have noticed that the coin was struck in the name of the son of King Asshole, namely King "Lick my ass".

    P.S .: @ elko777: Nachwächter has already written it clearly.
  • Obviously I'm getting stuck here, why don't I get a reasonable answer. If the coin were real, is it worth a lot or nothing? The coins I bought back then were 2 gold coins from the Doge of Venice from 1778. I can take you more photos.
  • OK, let's start an analysis:

    The first word on the little man with a porn bar and modern hairstyle is probably: Basilea = according to Wikipedia:


    Basilea is:
    Basilea stands for:
    • Basel, the neo-Latin and Italian name for the Swiss city


    On the back dearest piggy and the word "I" ???



    So you minted a coin from Atlantis or a fun coin from Basel from the boy himself. Value = most likely disgusting immeasurable

  • So I showed the coin to a Greek because those are Cyrillic characters and he told me that it was called King. But he couldn't decipher the rest of it either.
  • Hello,

    Your shown gold coin of the Doge of Venice is a ducat from Holland. However, it is very wavy and should only bring the precious metal value (3.44g fine).

  • I have already dealt with the Lydian characters and they are obviously Lydian characters, therefore the cocky headline "probably one of the oldest ..."
  • Because of the gold coins, I only bought them at their gold value. He had asked a bank what he would get for it and they wanted to give him 300 DM for the 2 coins. I gave him 350 DM at the time and got the old coin for it.
    He still had very old clay coins, but in poor condition.
  • I wrote you that it is called Basilea (Greek letters) and if you ask me, the other word next to it is a twisted spelling for Sunnyboy / (here: Seanyboy)

    So clearly a fun coin recreated by one
