Coin Photo Galleries
US Coins, World Coins, Soviet & Russian Coins Found with Metal Detector
The following photo galleries show some of my coin finds that I recovered with metal detector in different parts of the world. A few coins shown in the World Coins photo gallery represent some European, East European, and Asian countries to which I have not travelled yet but managed to unearth their coins. Because of the trade, commerce, and other social events that took place in history, the coins travelled across the borders and wound up at different locations to be found with metal detectors later.
Similar cases in the US include recoveries of Spanish Reals, British Coppers (mostly in the North-East), and Chineese coins, their images can be seen in the World Coins photogallery.
The Chineese coins ended up in the US in big quantities in mid-1800s. The explanation for this is very simple. The American merchants started importing the woven baskets from Cnina around that time. The center-holed coins were attached to the baskets for decoration.
