The oldest dates to the 1500s (no exact date). Here is a link to the thread (photos unfortunately down).
And the newest is from 2020 (just recently shipped by the seller).
As far as my collection goes, 95% of it is a thousand miles away...in Texas. My focus has been coins of North America. I have some British and Spanish coins that "may" have circulated in present day America, but the earliest one I know for sure is a counterstamped French Sou. Mine looks very similar in color and detail as this one I found on the internet.
Edit: Ooops, I forgot about my Hibernia half pennies. They circulated here, too.
The luster of your 1818 half is mesmerizing!
Thanks. It is an AU 55, but has retained a lot of its luster. Whoever dipped it did an excellent job in the past.

Come on....pix or it didn't happen!
I've never dipped anything but have heard stories of folks doing it wrong. There's a technique that removes Sulphur tarnish without removing Silver that works pretty well. Set a silver object in a foil-lined dish, dissolve (1:16) baking soda into boiling water, then pour the solution into the foil-lined dish...submerging the object.
The object must be in contact with the Aluminum for this electro-chemical reaction to work. The Silver Sulfide (Ag2S) separates, leaving the Silver. The Sulphur attaches to the Aluminum creating Aluminum Sulfide (Al2S3).
Be sure to rinse the object in distilled water when finished. You may have to do this a few times to remove the heaviest tarnish.
I've often thought something similar could be done to reverse Milk Spots, but I have no idea what compound a Milk Spot actually is. I'm thinking Silver Chloride, but that's just a guess.

The most recent coin is a 2020. So that is a range from 1807-2020.
For a continuous run, I have a coin from every year from 1857-2020
