The time has come for posting your 12 favorite or top coins from the 19th century!

everyone is welcome to post one coin a day starting on Saturday February 4 to February 15 from the 19th century (1800 to 1899)

We would prefer a ranking from good to the absolute best on the 15th but some I know cannot distinguish from #12 to #1. It's hard but do your best.

Any coin is welcome from any country,any denominations,and any condition.

Will we have 19th century love tokens posted on the 14th.

Show off your stuff one coin a day to the finally on the 15.

12 favorite what? You may want to add the 19th century part to the title.

Number #12

=> 1862 New Brunswick 20 cent piece (a nice ol' Maritime coin)
=> 150 years old
=> only *150,000* minted




... shame about the partial finger-print (*sigh*)

I hope the forum members will allow me to express my artsy-phartsy side. The 19th Century produced many artistic coins, so I will post my 12 in a "Coins as Art" format. I run these and others as my screensaver, sort of a 7070 slideshow.

Wow, times must have been sooo different back in the 1800's, eh?

=> our first three coin denominations have been:

1) a "20 cent" coin,

2) a "3 cent" coin,

3) and a "1/2 cent" coin!

... apparently a cent went a long, long way back then!

=> pretty cool coins, so far! (we're off to a good start)

As a dedicated commemorative collector I thought I would start with the first minted by the US.

1893 World's Colombian Exposition Half Dollar.

Darkside huzzah!
My first piece for this 12-step show is so strongly toned it almost looks chocolate.
1890 Victoria matron head crown from Great Britain:




Imagine having to spend your entire life dressed to the nines. I wonder where she hung her crown when retiring for the night? Or perhaps it is improper to wonder about such things? This is a heavy silver coin of 38.5 mm.

Well, if it's only one a day, let's start off with the series I know best and most favorite (and a sleeper in better circulated grades to boot):

Specializing in 2-3-20 cent pieces and 19th Century Proofs
Did someone mention 3CN?

Really great darkside showing so far & still early on day 1. Looking forward to a lot more as we countdown. And to those not from the US, enjoy our American offerings as part of your darkside.

Great show so far and I'm looking forward to more fantastic examples.

Mysilveryears, I need to have a coin that depicts the horseman slaying the dragon, I only knew of gold versions, now I may actually be able to get one!

muddler, oh yeah the Bitish crowns of that era and later are not difficult. Check out the stylistic 1935. Also that motif was used on many other coins, other than British.

<edit to add link> check this one out:
