    Found this in my Dad's bag of coins, almost missed it due to the small size. Most interesting one because of the source, the fact it is a mule (combination of two other coins) and the gold content is about 80%. IMG_3207.jpg IMG_3208.jpg IMG_3207.jpg

    I would love to hear what two coins you believe this to be a mule of, and how you know its 80% gold?

    Obverse pattern for the silver 1/8 Birr and the reverse die for the Menelik 1/32 Birr.
    Took it to a dealer who told me the gold percentage.

    I'll take your word on it I can barely make anything out on account from the glare in the photos and the fact that they're posted sideways...

    No worries; I'm glad you're sharing. I just worry about you being new to this and making claims of owning a gold, muled coin. I'm very much happy for you if you are correct :)

    Do you believe there is any value for me to have this NGC certified?

    What are the diameter and weight of this coin? What was the method of gold detection for the coin? This coin doesn't match any of the coins I'm familiar with from Ethiopia... Can you help guide me to the two coins you believe are muled?

    The coin is in my safe deposit along with my Mexican 50 Peso gold. Here is a link to a writeup coin - https://www.numisbids.com/n.php?p=lot&sid=1808&lot=30514

    I believe it would be a good idea to have a coin like this certified by NGC.
