Yemen, 10 rials, 1995

Whoa! What the heck is this thing?

Yemen, 10 rials, 1995 (KM #27)

This is the first coin I’ve ever found from Yemen! It features the Shaharah Bridge. Did you know that Yemen is the only republic on the Arabian peninsula?

The coin is dated AH 1416 on the Islamic calendar, and also bears the Gregorian date of 1995. In case you were wondering, 10 Yemeni rials is worth 4.7 cents USD, despite this coin being larger than our quarter. It has negligible value in its stainless steel composition.
