what looks like an elderly man with a long beard. He is wearing a hat and is also wearing what looks like a robe around the shoulders.

Thomas asks…

I’m having trouble identifying a foreign coin?

I inherited it from my father and I have absolutely no idea where it might have come from.

It’s an oval, almost egg shape (approx. 11x10mm) and made of a silver metal. It’s nicely weighted for its size, so I don’t think it’s aluminum.

There are no pictures but on each side is a row of dots and a bunch of lines that look like Arabic script, but I can’t be sure.

This is unlike anything I’ve seen before and I’m not even sure it is a currency coin. Does anyone know anything about this? Any information at all could help.

financi4 answers:

Take it to a coin shop where it can be viewed in person.

You can find shops in your area by putting coin dealers and then your city and state in the search box at

George asks…

I bought some coins the other day and need help identifying one?

It’s a tiny bit smaller than an old 2p coin and is silver-coloured but not silver. The writing is foreign, possibly Asian but not Chinese or Japanese. Front has a portrait of a man wearing glasses and he’s looking to his left. On the back is more foreign writing and a picture of a thing with eagle legs and a crocodile(?) head? The wings are stretched upward and it’s wearing a sporran-type thing over its privates.

My coin is from Thailand! Now to find out the year & denomination…
