Title: * * Our Oldest Forum Coin Find * *
Post by: Meggie on May 16, 2011, 16:33
Just for a bit of fun,i thought we should find out our oldest Forum coin find.

But with a difference, I'll start of with a 2010 coin then someone else posts a 2009 coin find.
Next member posts a 2008 find and so on.Until we reach our oldest find without missing a consecutive date.

RULES : Coins must be found in Australia.
Only one post per member per day,or else we will delete them.

So here we go with a 2010 $2 coin.

Meggie does sound like fun, but why not start down the track a bit say 1900

Everybody knows what our younger coins look like

It's not all about photo's,it's about the numerical year coin countdown.

So you could show foreign coins that you have found for example.
Be imaginative.

Correct me if I am wrong but isnt there a year in the mid late 1980s where no gold or silver coins were relesed? only done in mint sets for collectors ect??? still have a funny feeling they done the coppers so might have to look at the brown bugger pile?
Title: Re: * * * * Our Oldest Forum Coin Find * * * *

My first "real old' find in my early days of detecting. I gave up on this coin coz it was so pimpled and corroded so I smashed it on the tiles and all the bad bits came off  8) I vote it for ugliest coin of the month  ;D ;D ;D

Post by: Rwork on June 05, 2011, 17:40
I think from 1900 back to 1875 will be hard to fill in order.A lot of us have the early goldfields dates around 1850 to maybe 1870 and the odd one back in the early 1800"s.A few have the late 1700's cartwheels.This might take a while to count down, i will have to have a look at all the old roughy's for dates.

This is the second time Findem has had to post this coin. The mods received a report that he had posted two coins the same day. I deleted what i thought was his second coin after looking back and seeing another post, turns out he was only commenting on a previous find by someone else.  Sorry Findem.


Back at the start of this series of posts are some rules which Meggie made when he started the post. 
Basically, members are only to post one coin a day to give other members a chance to put up their finds.
Markoss had a coin with the same date as findums but waited to see if he was going to repost.
Title: Re: * * Our Oldest Forum Coin Find * *
Post by: Rwork on February 18, 2012, 12:51
I had a look to see who had found an 1841 coin  and my own name came up in the old pub site coins post.

I see i found a token on that day and as i don't have that award i will ask one of the Mods to post it please.

A decision has been made to skip the year 1832 .. it's been almost two years since we had any movement on this thread.
So we now require a coin or token from the year 1831.
** Remember as per the rules .. Coins must be found in Australia **
     Only one post per member per day,or else we will delete them.
Good luck.

An 1821 farthing, found before I joined the forum.

A bit beaten up around the edges, (courtesy of a JCB doing site works)

We are still looking for an 1814 coin found at anytime by a forum member. For new members, this post was started by Meggie back in 2010. The countdown must be in order by years. Once an 1814 has been listed the next must be a '13.

Hooray,at last .. it's taken over a year but at last we are on the move again.

Well done Woolshed, it's actually a 1814 Captain Broke Britannia Nova Scotia Copper Token.


Some info here ..   http://dumpdiggers.blogspot.in/2007/12/broke-token-in-upper-canada.html

If not I'm sure I have an 1813 coin here somewhere,  we may be into the 1780's before I find where I put it though!
