Thank you, nikola! Are there by chance silver? I know they look like silver but I have seen some debased Hungarian 16th Century Silver coins, can't know for sure

It is my understanding that the medieval period ended in the 15th century. Different specific dates by different experts: but the 15th century is the one constant. Some date the end of the middle ages with the fall of Constantinople others the European discovery of America. Many of the coins pictured are early modern

I think this is 17th century Friedrich Wilhelm 1 shilling of Prussia, but I can't find this coin on internet... Maybe more options? Anyone?

@remakas These coins are counterfeits, minted in Suceava, Romania. Something similar to Riga towers like on free Riga solids on one side and similar to Prussian Eagle and Prussian legend on another side......

@giedrius, just so that I can learn, can you please provide some details for what to look for with these counterfeits? They should be good silver I think (as opposed to silver washed), but is there something else to check?
