Let's talk about coins and coin collections. I happened to inherit some mint condition 1950s coins from Europe. Particularly deutsche marcs and Francs. Anyone have any idea what they are worth? Should I keep them or sell them if they are worth anything at all?

I don't think I own any particularly noteworthy coins, but I did recently buy an uncirculated $100 trillion bill issued by the Zimbabwe government during their recent battle with hyperinflation.

My grandma used to collect coins. Can't remember which ones specifically. I remember stealing a bunch. I was also eight. She's dead. I'll go now.

I inherited my grandfather's collection of very old coins. Deutschmarks, francs, drachmas, early US currency and even older--some of them look so old I can't make out what's on them, like they're from the Stone Age or something. I'd post some pictures but the album is in a different house. I wouldn't dream of selling it.

Credit where credit is due, gentlemen. The Greeks taught the Romans everything they knew about the art of lovemaking...including anal.

My dad's got a few odd and a few really old coins. They're mostly pre-decimal pennies and some of them are so old and worn that there's no markings on them at all. I'm pretty sure one of them was 17-- but it may very well have been wishful thinking. Then again, there are a few from the early 1800s so it's not much of a stretch. There's also a few lira, deutschmarks and Yugoslavian thing-a-me-bobs (Dinar apparently), but they're not that old of course.

I had to check I had the right thread after a quick glance at the posts above!

I collect imperial Roman coins as a side hobby, but I've never seen or heard of the porno coins before. I just try to get at least one of each emporer, and because they're not that cheap, I only pick up like one or two new ones per year.
According to history, the 3rd century emperor Elagabalus was not only openly gay, but he would have sex with members of the imperial guard in exchange for money- hey I guess it was a good way to raise money for the imperial coffers.

I have two and a half Danegeld coins which I dug up near a river bank when I was 12 during a school trip, I did have three coins but I donated one to a museum. They're not worth much, despite being silver. I just keep them around as curiosities.

I also have a bunch of Roman era coins from various civilizations that my grandmother gave me, they're worth nothing since they're merely recreations.

I have an 1815 Anna, from the East India Company. It has Hannuman on the backside, and it is made out of bronze. That's about my whole collection.
