Romania, Wartime Silver 500 Lei

During World War II Romania issued this silver 500 Lei for just one year 1944. Well in fact the last coins they issued was in 1947. King Mihai I is on the obverse with the crowned coat of arms on the reverse. It is most unusual to have silver coins struck during the War. These large silver coins are in Extremely Fine condition but someone has wiped them so there are faint hairlines showing. They still look nice, but the average collector wouldn’t see the difference. World War II, silver, only issued for one year and in nice condition, what more could you want?

It is about the size of an old Shilling and is struck in 835 Silver and in Very Fine condition. You have the coat of arms of Latvia supported by a lion and a griffin and the title ‘Latvijas Republika’. The reverse has the value and date within a wreath. Today this coin is now over 92 years old and it was struck in .835 Silver which is quite high quality.
