Massive SILVER & AU 1815 Copper (+MORE!!) FOUND In Half Pound World Coin Search – Bag #16

Another really enjoyable search through a MA-Shops ( ) sponsored half pound world coin search for my foreign series – was able to get a ton of bags to search, and I can't wait to go through them with you. MA-Shops is a trusted online marketplace for coins from all around the world, including ancients, medieval, U.S., and even paper money. I get these bags from different coin dealers who I have connections with, and unbox them coin by coin, looking for rare, old, collectible, or even just neat coins that unveil history from all around the world.

  1. Some nice finds in this batch! In AU, that 1918 British penny has some value. Love that 1815 token!

  2. Nice fun facts about the exchange rates between GDR and Western Germany, Christian ! Back in the day, there was a black market to change currencies in GDR, but you could also buy East German Mark at every West German bank for a realistic market price. 10:34 10 Pfennig 1876 is just clad. Greets from GER, U.

  3. Actually the bird on the Australian coin is the Emu not the ostrich. There is an odd history in Australia called the Great Emu War. You may want to read up on it or look it up in Extra History in Youtube

  4. I always enjoy when you do these videos, showing these types of coins. It makes me think back to when I was much younger, looking through the bag of coins that my parents had. I guess my father had returned from the war (W.W.2) with coins from the different Countries were they fought. Anyway, Thanks Christian. Have a good one.

    P.S. I was happy to see you being included as a panel member on the Live Q.&A. Video. You held your own, and did a damn good job.

  5. You did it absolutely right on the East German currency! 🙂 To add something, on the internal and subsidized market this two Mark coin was worth like 40 ice cream scoops. With 40 to 60 Marks a family could afford an average month rent for a flat and an average salary was at 900 Marks. But still since East German currency could not be traded on an international market and most daily life products were highly subsidized, western currency was worth way more when buying western products or products that were intended for export to western countries. Private craftsmen could even work harder when offered being paid 10% in western currency. Since black market was prohibited people only could use coded phrases for western currency like „blue tiles“, which meant 100 Deutschmarks. 😉

  6. Fun fact: W. Germany was one of the last nations to keep silver in their circulating coins, alongside France.

    Mexico stands out in that they released circulating silver coinage in 2005!

  7. Can you advise where you get these bags? You have gotten me hooked on foreign coins. I’ve bought several bags that didn’t have any silver in them.

  8. Hey I want to know. Are these bags you are streaming bags that your store might sell to a customer? Or just something someone in your store creates for presentation?

  9. Dear Christian, I loved the old coppers, and silvers, and older world coins et AL!!!INFORMATION GARY BAILEY What a great batch of world coins, some of the best in a long while.
