Canada has issued a lot of odd denominations on NCLT issues, including 3 dollars, 4 dollars, 8 dollars, 15 dollars, 30 dollars, 75 dollars, 150 dollars, 250 dollars, 300 dollars, 350 dollars, 2500 dollars, 1 million dollars.

There are a ton of modern NCLT issues that have values like that. Want me to list them as I get the chance?

For example, a quick leaf through the world book and I see Niue 1/33 dollar, 1/24 dollar, 1/14 dollar, 1/9 dollar; Spain 300 euro; Suriname 400 dollars; Sweden 300 kronor, 4000 kronor; Togo 1500 francs; Zambia 4000 kwacha, 40000 kwacha.

I looked up some of the Niue fractional dollars a while back, and from the (rather low-resolution) pictures I could find it didn't look like they showed the denomination.
It would be nice to find some better pics and be more certain, however.

As for the other NCLT listings, we're trying to avoid stuffing the list with random NCLT too much (and in some cases, such as 3 dollars, we already listed a legitimate circulating example of the denomination from another country), but otherwise there's no real reason why not.
(Though the silly 1 million dollars offerings had been explicitly excluded a while back - don't recall exactly why.)

They may or may not have the denomination on them (there are not a lot of pictures, I didn't see them), but the standard catalog does list the Niue novelty sets as those face values.

I know it does, which is why I checked them in the first place.

This thread has a long-standing policy of not counting coins that don't actually mention their denomination anywhere on them; this is more significant for older coins, but I'm pretty sure we did also exclude some fairly modern coins that way.

Hannover in the 1820s had a few 2/3 thaler coins.

Now that the banknote thread had also been bumped, might as well bump this one too, especially now that I've found some new examples of rare denominations - and possibly one new two-digit integer filling a gap...


Japan (Akita) 4 momme 6 fun, i.e. 4-3/5 momme (Numista link)
Japan (Akita) 9 momme 2 fun, i.e. 9-1/5 momme (Numista link)
Japan (Yonezawa) 200 mon = 34 momme (Numista link)

4-3/5 and 9-1/5 were previously only attested from Zara siege issues; 34 was not attested at all.

If the 34 turns out to be legitimate, this would mean that the only integer denominations below 40 still unattested are 19, 29, and 38.
(I know of a reference to a countermarked 19 soldi from Venetian Cyprus, but was so far unable to find any images of the actual coin.)

Coins with denomination 60 were mentioned upthread by @oriole, but missing the earlier one shown below.
First, 1726 coin of 60 deniers (shown as LX) from the Duchy of Lorraine (KM-79), one year type. Interesting for its use of two old symbols of Lorraine, the alerion which goes back to early medieval times, and the double barred cross, which goes back to the 15th century.
While this denomination converts nicely to 5 sous, Lorraine also issued coins in the 1720s of 30 deniers (= 2 1/2 sous), and 15 deniers (=1 1/4 sous), as well as the second coin of unusual denomination (though many 12 1/2 have been cited), a 1728 masson = 12 sous 6 deniers (12 1/2 sous), also a one year type. Two recent pickups for my Duchy of Lorraine and OFEY collections.
(Edit: I just realized the rules require the denomination to show on the coin, and the second does not
Lorraine 60 deniers 1726:


Lorraine Masson = 12 sous 6 deniers

5/10 is considered equivalent to the (common) 1/2 for this list, though it's definitely an odd way to write it. (IIRC some place made a 2/4 as well?)

Those are some really neat coins though!

This is probably a "Pseudo-coin from an uninhabited island," but I thought it was cool:




Edit: didn't load obverse:

I think it would have counted, actually (though as NCLT). Only reason it's not already listed is because it's so recent.
