    At the bottom of my coin box I have this coin. It is silver but I cant seem to find it anywhere on the net. Anyone know?

    Your coin is a 50 cents and one dollar denomination from China's Kirin Province. These were minted between 1900 and 1906, and can be quite valuable if genuine and in good shape. The 50 cents has annotation '3 candarins' and the dollar has '7 caindarins.' I hope this helps.

    If you think people here are jerks based on one person telling you there is no need for double posting a thread, then you need to grow thicker skin lol
    The coin is a modern fantasy and made of base metal alloy.
