That's not bad at all! Yes, all you have to do is find a previously unknown gold issue by Julius Caesar and you've done it. Or perhaps a rare Chinese coin. Those are setting new prize records all the time, I hear. Not my speciality, though. My most expensive Chinese coin I got for €4. I prefer European ones. My speciality is numbers, though. I'm putting together a collectioin of as many dates and denominations as possible. Only numbers. Which means I like coins such as 36 Grote from Bremen, 1/18½ Thaler from Holstein-Schauenberg-Pinneberg and ½ 3 Gulden from Friesland. I have all of those
very interesting field indeed, there are so many interesting denominations.
I believe they first started to put dates on coins in Europe in 15th/16th century. It means well before they started to use machines to struck coins.
German states especially minted tons of various coins
I've just checked what first came in my hand, grabbed an album and here I'm looking now at a silver "1 marck danske" from 1563, silver 30 kopeks/2 zlote 1837, some polish coins etc. I have had many such weird denominations like 9 cavalli and what not, still have probably, I need to check it more thoroughly
