Not a coin. The date 1741 is the give away. Made to look like a coin from the far east. Far east countries would not have used western calendar dating.

The guy does look chineese, ALL china coins from 1700 to 1800 have a square hole in them as well most do from japan.

My friend has the same coin, he found it along side the road. I researched it and I think it is a 1741 colonial coin with King George II on it. Its not a half Pennie or farthing, but thats what I think.

I think its a 1741 coin with King George II on it. My friend found another one alongside the road, so I looked it up and thats what I figured it was. Its nut a halfpenny or farthing though.

If I offended anyone with that last post I'm sorry. Really, I was just kidding around. To be honest, if I found it I would of been jumping up and down thinking it was real also.

I found this same coin about 2 years ago laying on the floor in a Borders Books store. But for some reason after researching for hours and hours this coin never appears besides on this web site. If any one knows anything about the coin and is sure about it please say something, who know this coin could be worth a lot of money

They really ought to have stamped copy or something on the coin, even though it's not a copy of a real coin. It's amazing how hard it can be to identify stuff sometimes, this thread is quite an example of that!

I want a pirate kit now.

If any one has any idea what or where it came from, I would love to know. I have been researching it for a week now and no clues!!
The date is 1741. I found it about 4-5 inches deep, it read a 38 on the TID of my X-70. It appears to be bronze. The date fits the time period of settlement (1733) of the area I was md'ing. Any help would be much appreciated! Thanks!!
I just found a coin that looks like that one! Did you find out what it is or if it is worth anything?

I have the same coins, I found them in a piggy bank from when I was a kid...hoping to find out soon the origin! I'm not thinking it says 1741 after all it is a foreign coin, I'm betting it says something in Arabic or some middle eastern language!
