Hi all new to the group,

I metal detect for a hobby and have started getting a bit of an Australian coin collection. I found a very different coin while on a hunt.

A silver Kiang Nan Province 7 2 Candareens. Note, does not stick to a magnet, is 2.6 grams and is real silver.


Let me know your thoughts? Please don't be fake!?!?
Let me know if you need more pics, I had a had enough time loading this one haha.

@RJB, first welcome to CCF. Second, that is a great find! Can you please post a pic of the other side of the coin? Also, it is probably a good idea to post the diameter and weight.

Weight & Diameter match this coin. But I note that your coin appears to have a counter stamp on it.
