@finn, that is going to be really tough to beat, but here is my attempt. Here is a mid-4th Century Nummus of Constantine I (The Great). On the rev is Sol, along with SOLI INVICOTO COMITI, "to the unconquerable Sun-god".

My vote is for Spence, that coin is beautiful
Loving Halfcrowns. British and Commonwealth coins 1750 - 1950 and anything Kiwi.
If it's round, shiny and silvery I will love it.

Definitely Finn. I'm not really into Arab-Byzantines, but this coin is awesome and now I want one of those (again).

Thanks all! Didn't expect to win that one!

Doing a simple challenge for this one:

Post your legal tender silver coin that is closest to or even exceeds the coin's intrinsic value!

Example

Japan 10,000 Yen 1986, 60th year of Emperor Showa's reign

Face value 10,000 Yen = USD $95.40
Intrinsic value 20g .999 @ $24.50 = $15.94
(You can use Numista for these values)

$95.40 / $15.94 = 5.98, nearly six times as much face value as intrinsic value.

Similarly, a 40% clad half has an intrinsic value of $3.61, and $0.50 / 3.61 = 0.13.

This way, you should be able to calculate in your own currency (for non-US folks) and get the same results.

Simple math, highest point value wins!

Additional rules:
- Must contain silver or another precious metal. No base metals, because we all know a US Large Cent would win!
- Coin can be NIFC/NCLT, but must be legal tender in October 2020.
- I'm aware that both exchange rates and PM prices fluctuate, so if the finalists are too close, tie breaker will be determined by a re-calculation.
