Do you have a fake coin and want to know its value? Leave a comment
I went to Coney Island on Saturday to the 28th Annual Mermaid Parade and while most of pictures I took are not proper for this venue I did get a neat souvenir.
One group of marchers were dressed as pirates and were throwing out pirate coins. I wanted to get some but there was a little kid next to me running out and grabbing them by the fistful. I manage to get one that got run over by several cars, so it is not uncirculated.
The only difference between each side is one has an added CHINA after the AVAG CO BEPSIG. The picture is some generic roman guy, I assume it may be Neptune. The edge is reeded but I saw a few that were not. As for the AVAG CO BEPSIG it means nothing officially but again I think it is some sort of anagram.
Here's the stats...
Type/Country: AVAG CO BEPSIG / Pirate Fake Gold Coin
Year: (No date)
Mintage: Millions upon Millions
Metal: Plastic of some type.
I could not find the specific retailer but they seem pretty common.
Do you have an odd coin and want to know its value? Leave a comment/question and I will do my best to find out the price and history for you.
