Technically, the challenge doesn't actually say how much of the coin has to be left



This 2 kopek coin of Paul I of Russia, dated 1798, was made at the Anninsky mint, which closed that year - having opened in 1789, only nine years earlier.

Alas, I only have (approximately) half of the coin, which is in fact how I got it (from a bargain bin, IIRC).
I've been told that at the time such a half would serve as a surrogate 1 kopek coin; I'm not sure if that's true, but it sounds plausible enough, and the cut looks old.

(I have a few other, more complete, coins from Anninsky mint, but this piece was the first I found, and I decided that it was neat enough to post. I sincerely apologize for the lack of photo quality.)

In case I don't find anything else, here's one I already have pics of. I believe this is from the Noida Mint of India which began production in 1988.

I'm tempted to make the next challenge about coin halves (or coin fractions in general), but couldn't think of a good way to assign points.

Well, it should probably be smallest fraction that is still attributable to type, date (if applicable), and mint (if applicable). But yeah, that could work. I think. Might be hard to judge, but we'll see what happens.

I would also need to take some pics, though, because I don't want to just post the same coin I already used...
