Well not really but still a nice lot of old coins amongst the stash that my father had been collecting over his lifetime. He passed away the day after ANZAC day 2014 and today I came across his collection.

I checked some of the older coins and most only have novelty value but the 1803 Napoleon Bonapart coin looks to be valued at a few hundred dollars. smile I cannot post a photo of it cause I don't have enough posts as yet but when I do I will put up an image of it.

There are some Australian pennies, half pennies and shillings amongst other currencies. smile

I had seen them when I was a youngster but not since then, my Dad kept them well hidden. smile

Okay I think I have enough posts to allow me to throw up an image of the Bonaparte coin so here goes:

This coin dates to 1803 and is made from silver
