I didn't measure the diameter of this coin but it wouldn't fit in a 2x2 no matter how I tried. It was double struck hence it was just flatten to a bigger diameter.
Netherlands, 2½ Gulden - Ø 38 mm. Well, at least I think that is my biggest circulation coin. Mine is a different year (image: Dutch Mint) but the same type ...
Hi, looks interesting, what coin is this? Cannot see well.
I suppose that since 1900 the largest circulating coin might be Mexico's 40mm
Cuauhtemoc 5 Peso silver coin struck in 1947 and 1948.
Check out my website at:
Egyptian Magic Coin, Coins in Movies, Tokens
1949 Mexico 1898 Peso Restrike for China
Or try these (obv and rev), from the Dutch Money Museum. Hope the two links work ...
From where is this coin, the first post.
Nice Bolivian. My Mexican 10 pesos also comes in at 40mm.
However, I left these in Yap
