This product is currently sold out.

Description: A beautiful nicely toned fine or better 1923 (1341 AH) ten Egyptian Piaster silver coin. The coin depicts the bust of King Fouad or Fuad the first, wearing a fez, facing right. The coin has a nice gray tone, with considerable wear to the facial details of the king on the obverse but much less wear evident to the reverse. The coin has the words Fouad the First King of Egypt on the obverse and is labeled (al-Mamlakah al-Mesryah) Kingdom of Egypt and shows the denomination and date in both AD and AH on the reverse. It is KM-337 and weighs 13.6 grams of 0.833 silver. This coin is of the less common variety, it does not have the letter H on the reverse. This variety had only 400,000 pieces minted as opposed to 1,000,000 minted for the "H" variety. It measures approximately 33 mm in diameter. Please carefully view the scan as it is part and parcel of our description.

Date: 1923 AD - 1341 AH.

Mint: Egypt.

Size and Weight: This is a ten piastres, weighs 13.6 grams and is ~33 mm in diameter.

References: It is KM #337.

Condition: I would grade this coin as a fine with the reverse being very fine. The coin has nice gray toning and all of its details being well preserved. The king's face has lost quite a bit of its details especially on the cheeks and ears. The reverse, which I would grade as almost very fine, is nicely toned and shows much less wear than the obverse with all of its details being well preserved. The coin has some minor rim dings but other than that it is problem free and is just beautiful with nice eye appeal. The coin is much better than the scan shows. Please see photo for additional condition information.
