Depending on condition, there are hundreds of types of world coins from that period costing less than $30 each.

What are you trying to do?

I've been getting older silver eagles for under $30 online auctions.

Just search for "silver crown" on eBay. Nearly every country had their take on the "dollar" or "crown" or "thaler" in the 19th century. Note that they will almost universally carry a steeper premium over the equivalent amount in smaller denominations.

The Peruvian Sol is my personal favorite.

I'm not sure how large you want or condition but there are also the British India silver rupees.

Depending on date and condition you can get them fairly cheap. Here's an 1840 that sold on eBay:

The commoner dates of the Victorian Jubilee and Veiled Head British crowns of 1887-1900 should be obtainable in VG-F for around $30.

Well, apart from French 5 Francs, there are plenty of ofter 5 Franc coins to go for. Swiss 5 Franc coins (crown size, 1928-back) are nice looking, but older coins could get more expensive.

Spain has issued several different types of 5 Peseta coins featuring different kings, including an infant king and his progressive ageing caught in portraits.

IF you like different "nations", or regional issues try German Empire 5 Mark coins, they were issued for different previous German states under a unified Germay.

If you don't want to spend lots of money, there's the cheaper later Dutch 2½ Gulden coins of mainland Holland, Curacau and the Antilles (technically Suriname as well, but they have the same design, there are very small yet fine differances that differentiate them). Mainland Holland has a couple of older 2½ Gulden coins as well, dating bach to early 19th century.

Italy has also issued 5 Lira coins as well.

Mexico has an impressive bunch of crown sized coins, the famous "original dollar", or Eight Reales piece was originally issued by Spain but became a staple in the early 19th century trade, with many new pieces being minted by the Spanish Empire in Mexico. After Mexico's independence, they were issued for some time after that.

If you like more exotic coins then there are Japanese 1 Yen and Chinese 1 Yuan, or dollars (a famous example is the "fat man dollar")

This hasn't been said but it is every so important: Beware of fakes! Silver crowns tend to be especially targeted by counterfeiters. The lastly mentioned coins, the Chinese coins, are very likely to be counterfeit.

Most counterfeits and the absolute majority of fakes you will encounter looking for these coins will be cheap, bad quality steel fakes. Telltale sings are a bright, almost blueish look to the metal (silver is reactive, so most coins will be darker grey with a yellowish tint of not too dull and grey in colour), the weight (silver crowns' wweight vary around 25-28 grams, depending on the size of the crown, steel counterfeits are way below this reaching down to 18-22 grams, far lower than a genuine could would be) and the design might look "off", especially portraits tend to look ugly and unrealistic.

I don't know how much you know about the counterfeits out there, but this forum is always helpful. We've got counterfeit experts here that will help you through the authentication process.

If you decide to hunt these "offline", or if you get to hold the coins in hand, always make sure to bring a magnet.

If you buy the Krause World Coins books from the appropriate centuries, you will have hours of leisurely and informative browsing. The choices in your chosen parameters may seem overwhelming.
Older editions of Krause can be found on Amazon for cheap and since these listings do not really change (except for the arbitrary valuations), there is no need to own the latest edition.
This 'crown-size' specialty is in danger of suffering from its own growing popularity. I can easily see the day coming when many of the pieces that now are quite affordable, become much less so due to increasing collector demand.
I have been pursuing these for half a dozen years and have noticed a definite uptick in asking prices and eBay competition.
Good luck.
