This is the best I can do from what I have imaged.
USA 3 cent silver

Face value - $0.03
Silver value - $0.48

Score = 0.03/0.48 = 0.0625

If I have this right. Most overvalued coin vs Silver content and actual face value.

Let me know if I am wrong (I am hoping NOT to win as coming up with new challenges is hard.





PNG 10 Kina 1976 Proof coin, but still legal tender.
Weight 41.6 grams of 92.5% silver = 38.48 grams

Silver value = NZ$45.62 (23/10/20) Numista
Face value PNGK 10 = NZ$4.22

$45.62 divided by $4.22 = 10.81 times.
Loving Halfcrowns. British and Commonwealth coins 1750 - 1950 and anything Kiwi.
If it's round, shiny and silvery I will love it.

@pt it would be face value in the numerator.

4.22/45.62 = 0.0925

I don't have taken too many pics of much of my US collection unfortunately.

However, here is an impaired 1996 proof Dime that I picked up in change somewhere. By my calculations the melt value is $1.7745, which gives me a score of 0.056.

Just a quick reminder that @pep offered up a list of potential new challenges several pages upthread:

Maybe it would help if we had list of ideas to be used for future challenges. Things like:

- oldest coin with lettering
- newest coin with no lettering
- oldest coin with airplane, car, locomotive, ship, etc.
- star with the most points
- coin with the largest central hole
- etc.

A moderator would have to collect these in one place, I suppose.

United States -- 5 oz Ag / 25 cents, 2016:





face value = $0.25
melt value = 5 * $24.63 = $123.15

ratio = .25/123.15 = 0.00203004466098254165

(I guess I'm in last place?)

Post a coin you pulled from circulation, the coin that was found the farthest from its home wins. This one made it 6,911 miles
Issued in Taiwan and spent in Las Vegas.

It's the distance between where the coin was last spent(or attempted) and where it was issued(the country not the mint)

I will also accept coins found in rolls.
