I will be blunt. I am an ancients fanatic and I don't focus on world coins but I have accumulated many British and World coins over the years including a biscuit tin full of world coins bought many years ago. I bought the tin to try and get my son into coins, which failed. My son and I are now jointly working through it to see if there is anything interesting in there. I think he is seeing Dollar signs.....

In amongst the mix are the following two coins from Sweden.

Carl  XIII. 1/12 Skilling

Obv:- FOLKETS VAL MIN HÖGSTA LAG, Monogram of Carl XIII
Rev:- Three crowns, 1-12 SKILLING
Reference:- KM#584
Mintage:- 2,880,000

Carl  XIIII. 1/4 Skilling

Obv:- FOLKETS KARLEK MIN BELONGING, Monogram of Carl XIV
Rev:- Crossed arrows, 1-4 SKILLING
Reference:- KM#595
Mintage:- 2,450,000

Hi Martin ... hopefully your kid eventually decides to follow your lead and collect ancient coins, but until then there's this ...

Ooops, sorry maridvnvm ... I didn't mean to derail your cool Swedish coin-thread

Sadly, I don't have any Swedish coins of my own ... ummm, but I did go search for a couple of cool coins to rescue your thread (hi)

Since I've visited Stockholm and the Vasa museum (The Vasa was a ship that sunk in the harbor just after leaving the wharf) I'm in chase for a 1628 Öre, same as those found in the wreck. Finding one with a clear date at the right price is a real challenge

Nice coins.  I don't really collect Sweden, but always succumb to temptation when the price is right, or something unusual comes along.

This one is an overstrike issue with partial date on the under-type is visible (1803 over 176x);
