Modern Foreign Coins Found through the years
« on: March 18, 2017, 17:29 »
I thought I would start a thread on the different types of overseas coins we find in our day to day detecting.  Most of these coins are not even worth face value but they are pretty cool and interesting finds never the less. I have posted my coins arranged in geographical location.  I did not post any of the foreign 18th and 19th century stuff I've found.

Mods - maybe a permanent thread if others are keen?

Found scattered around the Eaglehawk whipstick camp site. No idea why they were there. Some were in the bush and others laying on the dirt tracks.

I like the look of the top right coin and the pound on the top left. What is written on the edge of that coin?

My foreign coins since I started two and half years ago.  I didn't realise what I had collected, especially the number of US and New Zealand coins.

My favourite, is the US 1964 Kennedy silver half dollar followed by the 1955 2 cent British Caribbean Territories.
The other ones I like were the Visit Nepal coin and the US 1929 wheat cent.

Our found modern foreign coins were recently taken to the airport with Ringa on a  trip to visit family...Over the  (Jetstar) intercom came the message that a charity was accepting all modern foreign coins, .... we contributed all that we had...

there is also this opportunity...

By donating foreign coins and notes at any Commonwealth Bank or Bankwest store you will support UNICEF’s efforts for the most disadvantaged and excluded children worldwide.


2014.....from Qantas... "The simple idea for travellers to donate leftover foreign coins to charity when returning home from overseas has raised almost $30 million in 13 years."
