With dated coinage at a premium during several centuries, it is not possible to always find a coin from a specific year. But there are many coins where the minting period of undated coins is known, either because the issuer is known or from records. So let's see how far we can go down history.

Let's use similar rules to the one used in the "How far back can we go" threads in the main coin forum.

1. You must own the coin.
2. You must post a photo of the actual coin you own.
3. Coins need to be dated or for undated coins the minting period must start in the active decade.
4. The active decade changes at midnight (CCF time) once a coin has been posted with a date falling into the decade or an undated coin with a minting period of not more than 10 years starting in the active decade.
For undated coins please include information on the minting period.
This sound a little complicated, so I will try to post the active decade shortly after midnight each day.
5. Please only one coin per post (to ease page loads).
6. Please let someone else post before posting a second coin on a day.

For all those who have their coins on a hosting site, using a link to the image is okay. But please put the 'date' relevant information into your post.

Let's hope we can see plenty different coins covering a lot of history.

And let's start with 1591-1600.

Glad to see you started this thread, working from this end it's going to take a long time before I can post anything.

Don't you have some Hungarian coinage?
It doesn't matter how long the minting period is, just that it does start in the relevant decade.
While this might not move on the thread, it allows for more diversity to be seen.

Nothing before the 1100's in Hungarian. I might have a dated Sigismund, I'll have to check my data base.

For a bit more variety, a coin with a date in an unusual calendar...





Tsardom of Russia silver kopek, Boris Feodorovich (Godunov), KG 193, (7)10[7] AM (1598/99 AD)

Yes, the last digit of the date is not visible on my coin. So I present to you Kleshchinov-Grishin page 47 (for the attribution) and page 42 (English explanation of the date).

The calendar era itself had a long history by then, coming from the Byzantines; but, to the best of my knowledge, it was only ever used for coinage dates during two brief periods in Russia (that is, for pretty much the entirety of the Time of Troubles, 1596-1612 or so, and in the late 1690s under Peter).

Sorry for the awful photos; the coin is heavily tarnished to a very dark color, isn't particularly large in size, and the camera wasn't a very good one either.

Nice one 'january1may', I like different dating systems.
Welcome here 'EddieDiz', hope you have plenty more to contribute.
'o-train', very nice example and your Polish one is good for comparison with mine from Lithuania. Hope you will still come and look at other coins posted.

Will be moving on to 1581-1590 at midnight, hopefully going to see some more coins before that.

'EddieDiz' you just squeezed that one in.

Now we are in the 1581-1590 decade, so here comes:




1/2 Franc 1583F minted in Angers

and for those who want to know the complete legend, it is

Obverse: HENRICVS.III.D.G.FRANC.ET.POL.REX
Reverse: +SIT.NOMEN.DOMINI.BENEDICTVM.C

Postscript:

and for beating me for the first coin in this decade
