I believe they deserve their own thread.

Please Note what type of coin they are and any pertinent info along with photo.

Thank you...

To get things started, here are a few of my foreign finds so far.

1935 50 Reichspfennig
King George V 1919 penny
10 Yen
Here are a few of mine. The 3 Mark is my largest silver, dug that and the two Japanese coins a year or so ago from a yard just down the street. The 2 Mark(alloy) and the Netherlands quarter(.65 silver) are coinstar finds. The Chinese cash coins found earlier this year. And the other is a penny from Belgium I believe. On my list to find is a Canadian silver. Thanks, Mark

Great idea for the a thread! Finding odd non Canadian foreign coins always makes me wonder how they got into the Montana dirt. Here a few of the more interesting non Canadians I have unearthed over the past couple years. Include a British penny, A South African penny, an Indian One Pice , and a unknown Chinese copper coin.

Found many foreign coins.

This one is found between ww2 uniform stuff so i expect it was from a soldier (found more IH's).
