OK what do you think of these and what's to do with this one from "Letzeburg"?

Can anyone tell me something about these I have collected. Thanks...

To get a picture to show up in the forum, all you need to do is put the URL, and only the URL (no spaces or tother funky text) in between [img] and [/img].

Thus, saying [img][/img]
will show up as:

Now, to your coins...

"Letzeburg" is German (or perhaps Luxembourgish) for "Luxembourg" and appears sometimes on their coins.

The aluminium ones with "Travail Familie Patrie" were issued during WWII by the collaborationist Vichy State.

The 1920 half franc is from Switzerland; both it and the old 50 centimes are made of silver.

Luxemburg has their own dialect they call Letzemburgisch or something like it
It is mainly very difficult german if they pardon my simplification

Untill the Euro their money was coined in belgium
They would all accept the belgian coins but the belgians would not accept the luxemburger coins even if the rate was allways one on one

Just some additions to the Luxembourg coin.
Letzeburg (or Letzebuerg in the new spelling) is the Luxembourgish word for the country. On the modern coins you will only find legends in French or Luxemburgish on the coins.
Your coin has been first released in 1952 and could be found in circulation until +/-1989. In 1965 a new type has been released with the head of the New Grand-Duke. In the early 80s people started to collect this coin and it had almost completely disappeared from circulation.
The coin is still well known in Luxembourg as Feierstepler.
