2 Qirsh Silver Coin (1937)

Today's random silver coin show off is an Egyptian 2 Qirsh from 1937. A rather small coin, just 2.8 g of 0.833 silver, or 2.33 g of silver.

With today's spot price that's about 1.7 USD, not bad for such a small thingie.

On the front side we have King Farouk, the last king of Egypt and Sudan, wearing some silly hat...

On the other, some weird letters which apparently translate to:

Qirsh
Egyptian Kingdom
1937 - 1356

In other news, look at these silver beauties I ordered today! Dang, the gramps on the bottom has such an ugly nose!

I paid a bit more than what I wanted (15 euro total) but oh well... It is what is!

Lovely, you can really see how small the coin is compared to the Euro!

Amazing that they still used silver in the smaller coins back then.

Makes me want to buy some new coins!

Are we sure it's a hat? Might be the shape of his head!

I thought it will be worth more than 1.7 with the history that comes with it.

I thought i was fairly well versed in the coins of the world. Not an expert, but pretty knowledgeable.

Well. I guess I am not :-) Never heard of a Qirsh. Never seen one.

Nice!

Kennedy halves are great. I am old enough that almost all of the ones I have were pulled from circulation by my own grubby little paws.

They are quite common and cheap if you want to get one!

Will look into that :-) Might have to roust up some more kennedys also. Forgot how much I liked that coin. Love the half dollar sizes. Big enough to feel hefty, but small enough to still be unobtrusive.

Honestly mate, you find the most interesting coin. I still have that Medusa coin you put up the other week in my head, and this one is nearly as interesting!

The problem with Australia - we're close to nothing. Have been trying to hunt silver coins, and they don't show up on online marketplaces at a price point which represents value.

Keep the hunt alive then, Tim.
