Very nice haul, especially the two silver coins from Germany

I knew you would like them Ralf.


Welcome back Andreas, it's great to see your finds again.

I wish we had markets here like that. :(

Looks like a good haul!

I hardly ever find Max Planck type 2-mark coins in junk stalls.

So I made it to the market today and activity was quite high which is a brilliant setup for any coin hunting session. Today's results:



10 Schilling, Austria 1959, 1974, 1976, 1978, 1987
2 Zlote, Poland 1994 (x2) & 1995 (x2)
½ Penny, Jersey 1980
2 Pence, Jersey 1992
50 Pence, UK 1997, 1998, 2001 (x3) & 2006
2 Lati, Latvia 1992
5 Pesos, Mexico 2008 & 2009
1 Dollar, Canada 1987
1 Kina, Papua New Guinea 1975 (x2)
25 Øre, Norway 1916
5 Centavos, Argentina 1938
10 Milliemes, Egypt 1929
1 Markka, Finland 1965
5 Sheqalim, Israel (x5)
10 Sheqalim, Israel (x7)



And an additional DKK 205 and NOK 65.

All for a total of SEK 190 - less than the same nominal in Danish kroner. A good day after not having made it for a couple of weeks. Also quite pleased about the Papuan coins and Norwegian silvers!

It varies! The first coins that will go of these are the Norwegian coins as I'm planning on making it close to the Norwegian border soon where they can be used in border shops. For the Danish coins, I'm likewise planning on making a trip however quick it might be to exchange older and newer coins for notes and use leftovers as travel currency. Same goes for many currencies I get, UK pounds and euros for instance. Many coins also go up for trading as I'm sure my trading buddies are aware. Otherwise I'm always looking for upgrades and new type coins/notes, and anything else is sorted and added to the accumulation!

Interestingly, I think this is the first time I've ever seen PNG coins for sale in person in Sweden. Not that they are particularly rare, it's just that some world coins don't really make it to the other side of the world.

So I finally had some time to make it back for another day at the market. Today's offerings were quite few and far between but I found two sellers that had lots to offer. Total spent for today just 140 kr.




2 Pence, UK 1987 & 2001
5 Pence, UK 1990
20 Pence, UK 1987
50 Pence, UK 1997 & 2005
1 Pound, UK 1984 &2000
2 Pounds, UK 2005

2 Cents, Australia 1978
10 Baht, Thailand 2011
1 Cent, US 1945, 1949, 1953-D, 1951, 1964-D
5 Cents, US 1949-D & 1964
1 Dime, US 1965

1 Dime, US 1960
1/4 Dollar, US 1936, 1961-D, 1964 (x3), 1966 (x2) & 1986

1 Markka, Finland 1961
10 Penniä, Finland 1964, 1976, 1977 & 1986
20 Penniä, Finland 1963
1 Markka, Finland 1965, 1972(x2) & 1973

2 Ngwee, Zambia 1968
1 Shillingi, Tanzaia 1966
10 Shillingi, Tanzania 1992
1 Sen, Malaysia 1985, 1992 & 2003 (x2)
5 Sen, Malaysia 1982
10 Sen, Malaysia 1967, 1981 & 1982

10 Sen, Malaysia 1991 & 2001 (x2)
50 Sen, Malaysia 1984
1 Ringgit, Malaysia 1986 (x4)

1 Peseta Spain 1987
10 Yen, Japan Showa 49 & Heisei 1
100 Yen, Japan Showa 51 & 61

The US silvers seemed to be part of someone's US trip in the 1960's together with the wheaties. Also quite surprised to see four of the same Malaysian Ringgits, very similar high condition, I wonder if all four were given in change at some point? Fun coins nonetheless.

That's all for now!

Okay, I am too curious. Paid with cash or paid cashless?


Once again, nice batch of coins.
