The Eidolon Posted July 10, 2022 · Member Share Posted July 10, 2022 I've always enjoyed coins with strange denominations, and like to ponder the reason why a coin in that amount came to be. We had a long thread over at the other form, and I was hoping we could continue a version of it here. A few examples to start off: New purchase: Luxembourg, 2½ Centimes, 1901 Jersey, 1844, 1/26 Shilling. (Jersey had 13 pence to the shilling as a side effect of decimalization during the French Revolution making old denominations unavailable.) Bremen, 2½ Schwaren, 1820 Ceylon, 1½ Pence, 1839 If you have any coins with strange or interesting fractions, please post some! 7 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
