I think this would qualify for the Russian Civil War. Finland was still under Russia at the time.

I'm not entirely confident (the dates involved confuse me), but I think this should qualify...



Seleucid Empire, AE unit (AE18)
Antiochos VII Euergetes (Sidetes), probably in opposition to Diodotus Tryphon
Dated 174 SE (ΔΟΡ) = 139/8 BC
Numista 140412, other references at link

Here's the chronology as I understand it from the Wikipedia description:
- July 138 BC: Demetrios II exiled by Tryphon, who enjoys sole rule for a few weeks
- early August 138 BC: Antiochus VII declares himself the legitimate heir of Demetrios II, gets immediate support from many parts of the empire
- late August (or early September?) 138 BC: Antiochus VII conquers the capital (Antioch), Tryphon retreats to Dor
- late 138 BC, date unclear: Tryphon dies in Apamea?

The year 174 SE ended on October 5, 138 BC, so this coin was issued at least that early, and it seems likely that Tryphon was, at least, still alive.
However, the rest of the chronology seems to have been heavily compressed (possibly by confusion between different varieties of the Seleucid era), so I'm not actually sure what happened when. There's way too much reported to have happened in that one August; could they even communicate that fast at the time?
Quote:
In the one hundred and seventy-fourth year Antiochus set out and invaded the land of his ancestors. All the troops rallied to him, so that there were only a few with Trypho. Antiochus pursued him, and Trypho came in his flight to Dor, which is by the sea; for he knew that troubles had converged on him, and his troops had deserted him.

- 1 Maccabees 15:10-12 (New Revised Standard Version)
Note that the Jews' "one hundred and seventy-fourth year" is 138/7 BC, not 139/8 BC. They're not saying it happened before October: they're saying it happened after April.

All look good so far. bd251, IIRC the bolsheviks imposed a communist legislature in Finland in 1917, so that would certainly apply, as well as being a part of Russia.

Here's another one just for fun. Minted during the Finnish Civil War.

I guess I'll have to go with the most obvious civil war:

Love that ancient, but can't see anything. Again going for the silver medal in this round, the often shown and never licked Conmmonwealth Half Crown.




1656 and issued by a group of people who chopped the King's head off, causing outrage through absolutist Europe!
Loving Halfcrowns. British and Commonwealth coins 1750 - 1950 and anything Kiwi.
If it's round, shiny and silvery I will love it.

Actually I have an older coin, Not so fast




Carthage Copper Unit, 1st or 2nd Punic war 204BC, fighting between Kings Massinissa and Jugurtha and the Roman Republic. It may be late, but look into your heart!

That is the latest, I believe it could be as old as 400BC and it was known that the Carthaginians were forever inflighting with ieach other.

Neat coin @Princetane!
I'd probably want better pics, and/or a more definite ID (and/or a better explanation of the civil war in question), but I don't have a ready idea right now anyway.

As such, with the second best score even if your late entry doesn't end up counting, you're next in line if I fail to think of anything in the next day or two.
(And I might well end up forfeiting it to you before that, especially if the better pics and/or explanations do indeed come in.)

[EDIT: slightly clarified the explanation.]
