It'll just be participation for me today, I'm pretty sure I have a 39-40mm crown sized silver somewhere, but nothing to beat the 20 Balboa!

So here's a shiny Morgan


My largest and heaviest silver coin is my Japanese Chogin, 62mm long, 30mm wide, and 88g, although it's only about 30% fine



I'd be curious to know about the actual largest silver coin made for circulation - for the ancient world, the Greek king Amyntas (Indo-Greek kingdom) minted a handful of 20-drachm coins, all 85 grams and varying diameters with the largest being 67mm. All extant examples were found in a single hoard, and they are all in museums.

The Samanids (medieval Arab kingdom) also minted silver coins up to 50mm, but only weighing 10-15g

I know that some European states minted multiple Thaler coins in the 16th-19th centuries, although I think few went much over 50mm.

They're not hard to find. I think I have four of them. ASW: 3.8539oz -- essentially 5 silver dollars.

There is a quadruple thaler that is almost as large as the 20 Balboa and Perth Mint makes some monstrous things, but I'm not sure if call them coins. This one is the largest I can think of right now https://en.numista.com/catalogue/pieces111692.html

Need to see it, no links only and it can't be bullion. I see Perth Mint and I think bullion straight away, gimmicky 1 ton gold coins and 1 kg silver coins etc.

Participation points cool, give yourself 1 each for all the following

1. More than 75% silver
2. Over 35mm in size OR 20 grams in weight
3. The coin is over 100 years old
4. You could spend it at one stage.

Contest closes in 48 hours from now!

If it's round, shiny and silvery I will love it.

It was more directed towards Finn, it also wasn't a Perth coin. The first was a 50 reales 178g and apparently a circulating coin. They second is a 10 Thaler also circulating.

1.Coin can be standard or proof strike like mine, but must be a NCLT or circulating legal tender coin - it CAN NOT be a Bullion silver coin or round - so no 1kg Aussie silver Kangaroos or $1 collector rounds. And no proofs or essays - it must have circulated.


I see Perth Mint and I think bullion straight away, gimmicky 1 ton gold coins and 1 kg silver coins etc.


The Bahamas have 100$ coins that are NCLT Proof coins like your original example, Keith's $5, and the 20 Balboa.

You and me both! Cool coin. I also like that Bahamas 5 dollars of yours. Or, maybe I just like large silver coins.

@pt, I have deleted your last couple replies. Consider taking a break from this thread as I don't think you understand that this is for fun. This is your last warning.
