I believe your coin is in the picture ... or at least close to it. Yours is dated 1843. This one is 1854 with a slightly different design.
New Brunswick minted these tokens -- half penny tokens and penny tokens -- in 1843 and 1854. All coins carry essentially the same value, so the discussion below applies.
average circulated: $100
well preserved: $300
fully uncirculated: $1000
The Lion and Sun, or Shir-o-khorshid, is one of the better-known emblems of Iran. Between 1310 and 1332 Iran issued several different denominations of dinar coins made out of bronze and aluminum bronze. Don't be fooled by the date, these are modern coins. It is an SH (solar Hejira) date, which is based on the life of Muhammed. To get the AD (Gregorian) date, add 621 to the SH date. In other words:
AD date = SH date + 621
For a 1317 coin, the AD date is 1938.
I couldn't find a good picture of a 1 penny coin for Bryan, but you get the idea with this 2 pence coin. These small denomination silver coins have been packaged in Maundy Sets and given out during church services on Maundy Thursday (the day before Good Friday, when Jesus Christ ws crucified) for centuries. The sets left intact are in uncirculated condition, or close to it, so that makes them quite valuable. You can divide, very roughly, the 4-coin set value by 4 to get a single coin value.
These are modern coins made of aluminum. Because of that, they do not carry much value. Some of the older dates begin to pick up a little collector value. Also, some coins minted in 1966 and 1967 are made of silver and these are quite valuable (see below)
All these coins have the large numeral 1 flanked by leaves. The reverse is slightly different based on date. Here are some typical catalog values:
FORINT 1946 TO 1949 WITH SECOND DESIGN (shown in secondary picture to left):
The medal in question seems to be 'Die Männer der ersten Stunde' - The Men of the Beginning, Konrad Adenauer, Theodor Heuss, and Kurt Schumacher, who are the three founding fathers of post-war German democracy. There are at least 10 series of medals minted to celebrate 40 Jahre Bundesrepublik - 40 years of the German Federal Republic (1949-1989). The one shown is the closest we could find to match requester's sfpoodles description, but there are probably others that would match as well.
Yasir's diligent research has allowed him to identify his coin as tetradrachm of the Indo-Parthian ruler Gondophares. His empire stretched across much of modern-day Afghanistan and Pakistan. These coins with the king mounted on a horse on one side, and a standing Shiva with a trident on the other side, are attributed slightly differently depending on who you ask. While most agree that they were issued under Gondophares I (there were several rulers with this name) they are dated to different periods of time between the late 1st century BC and the late 1st century AD. We have chosen the 20 BC to 10 BC dating based on Robert Senior's modern chronology.
Hello Bianca -- You have a silver dollar designed by a man named George Morgan, so collectors call coins like yours Morgan Dollars. They are highly prized collectibles.
Your 1901O specimen is a 'common date' coin like most of the dates and mint marks in this series. 1921 is the most common of the common dates, as there were hundreds of millions of the 1921 coins made. Coins with better dates, not common dates, are listed below. They are more valuable.
This bronze token was minted by the Franklin Mint for the Husky Oil Company in 1970. These tokens were offered upon a fill-up petrol purchase made at Husky gas stations. The station would provide a cardboard game board with cut-outs so the tokens in the set could be popped into the corresponding slots.
This token shows Sitting Bull, Indian chief. Before the Battle of the Little Bighorn, Sitting Bull had a vision in which he saw the defeat of the 7th Cavalry under Lt. Col. George Armstrong Custer on June 25, 1876. Sitting Bull's leadership inspired his people to a major victory. Months later he left the United States for Wood Mountain, North-West Territories (now Saskatchewan, Canada), where he remained until 1881. In Native American culture the buffalo symbolizes sacredness & life-building. It was also a primary source of food for the plains indians.
