Hint #11The last US silver dollar minted in the 1930s was 1935. The date of this coin is 1938. The folks guessing European coins are getting close. The dictionary has a broader definition of dollar.

I guess we could go back to the Spanish Milled Dollar (piece of 8) or Thaller if you want.

WE HAVE A WINNER. Paisa23 hit a homerun. As soon as I can find out what iceberg, I mean address, he is at, I'll send him the 5 Silver Dollar size solid Chinese coins. Those of you who want one of these coins will have to buy my book to get one. One coin comes with each book for Café members only.
...My coin is the silver 2 1/2 Guilder from Netherlands minted in 1938. On the face is Koningin (koningin means queen) Wilhelmina and on the back a royal coat of arms. Along the rim of the coin are 4 stars and the phrase "GOD ZIJ MET ONS" which means "God is with us." This motto is on the new 2 Euro coin from Netherlands. At one time the queen became the richest woman in the world by her ownership in Royal Dutch Petroleum (Shell). My father (88 years old) who was in The Battle of The Bulge in WWII brought this coin home with him as a souvenir. I’ve put it to good use.
...Here's a link to photos of a similar 1939 2 1/2 Guilder being sold on Ebay.

It's fortunate for Paisa23 that Leonard Koning (leko) my good friend from the Netherlands didn't participate in this contest. I think someone whose last name means "king" in dutch would figure out that the koningin (queen) on the coin was Wilhelmina. Smile

No luck involved at all Paisa23. It was pure skill, cunning, logical deduction, precise analysis, and the work of a brilliant mind. Your coins were mailed out today.
