    I wonder what's the first number one can find that's not a denomination for a world
    coin somewhere. I think all the numbers from 1-10 are all readily found as coin
    denominations. If you like, post the next number. I'll start with 1:
    Finland, 1 Markka, 1866

    Please post a 2 of something and so on to keep the series going!

    2 is easy. This is actually a photo of two different 2-cent pieces. Sorry.

    I used to have a fraction/mixed number thread going. I should revive it next time
    I see something suitable. Anyone for 6?

    I think this is my only 7:
    Austria, 7 kreuzer, 1802.
    I believe they were all struck over debased 1795 12 kreuzers.

    Does anyone have an 11?
    A numista search for face value 11 doesn't turn up much.
    I think there were some medieval coins denominated 11, but I've never seen one.

    I don't have an example, but a James I angel was current for 11 shillings from 1612 to 1619, so mintmarks Tower, Trefoil, Cinquefoil, Tun, Book, Crescent, Plain Cross or Saltire would apply. NB. It was marked X for 10 shillings on the obverse, but revalued up by 10% in 1612.

    And as we've already gone out of order, here's a 12 pence (shilling) while we're waiting. Charles II third hammered issue. The last hammered coins struck in Britain.

    Cool. Anyone have a Tunisian 13 nasri? Or a shilling was worth 13 Jersey pence
    before 1877. I don't think Jersey minted its own shillings, unfortunately.

    I guess we have the answer to the OP's initial question. 11?

    There's definitely an 11, I just haven't seen one personally.
    Here's an ancient 11, for example.
    And here's a 13
    There are quite a few 14 coins too.
    Next one I have personally is a 15.
    Silesia-Leignitz-Brieg, 1663, 15 Kreuzer, Duke Georg III

    I know nothing about Ancients. How does one tell that's an 11?
