Just a fun size comparison thread

Now, OK, one restriction: if your smallest and largest coin is going to be an American clad dime and an Eisenhower dollar, don't post. Sorry, I just want to cut down on the most likely combination. Everything else is fine.

It's preferable that you post more than one image, maybe one with an American penny or 2 Euro cent coin in one of the images so that we can get an idea of absolute size, not just comparative size. OK, here we go!


My smallest coin - an undated (struck between 1901 and 1949) 1 Cash from the Indian princely state of Travancore.


This is how tiny it is.


My largest coin is also my lowest-mintage (~4,000) coin - a 10 kina coin from Papua New Guinea. It's one of the Franklin Mint's pointless sets-only higher-denomination coins, bigger than your typical crown.


Together at last!

Well, my smallest coin isn't all that small, but my biggest is pretty big. Here are both, with a cent added in for comparison:



And here they are, side by side:

My largest coin isn't very interesting, just an ASE.

My smallest coin is a "half-crown" that I bought from a private mint. This thing is tiny. Just 10mm diameter.

I have not taken a photo of them together, so this combo will have to do. Both are in my Dansco 7070.

Imagine going to a store or anyplace and paying for stuff with that Azteca coin. Or think of carrying a pocket full of those.

I don't have pictures to prove it, but I'm with the 3 cent silver and ASE group.

That azteca coin is amazing! Why do I never see spectacular coins like that until years after they are issued and much harder and more expensive to get?

Nice thread! Interesting. I will have to do some searching of my collection. How about hinnest coin and thickest coin at some point too?
