Have a Myanmar coin and want to know its value? Leave a comment
One of the more difficult coins to identify especially since the Burmese language is not internet friendly. It is possible to read the language with some special support but usually you get ၅၀ ဟ္ရး ၁၉၆၆(50 PYAS 1966). Describing the coin is little help, there is a man, some words and an open wreath on the back.
Luckily I know enough about languages to narrow it down to the Thai or Burmese regions and then a little searching lead me to Myanmar. Also lucky is that all the Myanmar coins I own are from 1966. This year was the only issue to feature Aung San on the front. Every other year had an animal or plant.
On the back in the center is what I assume is the word PYAS but to me it looks like a camera. There written language is one of the nicest I have ever seen. Hopefully the web will catch up and make it universally readable.
Here are the stats for this...
Type/Country: 50 Pyas / Myanmar
Value: $0.40 in Very-Fine
