The first pull today is my first repeat, the UK 10 pence that was featured on January 8th. The second coin is….
Hong Kong, 50 cents, 1961 (KM #30)
Remember that security edge I was talking about three days ago? Well, this coin has it:
The British issued coins for Hong Kong starting in the 1860s, and kept doing so until retrocession to China in 1997. The mintage on this particular coin is a low 6 milllion, and the coin is worth about 6.5 cents USD. This is the oldest coin I’ve pulled out of the bag so far.
