    2. Dear Mr Rajan, can you kindly let me know the price of 1862 Queen Silver coin of one rupee. My No. is 9822631633. Rajesh


  2. The market is therefore somewhat thinner for World Coins and except for the great well known classic rarities, the prices are still very reasonable to downright cheap in many areas.
    Now, the dealer is not allowing any gold coins in there but occasionally, I find some very nice silver pieces and some relatively scarce early world coins
