Commemorative Coin/Medal


Recommended Posts

Not military so please feel free to move it to a more appropriate place.

I grabbed this the other day, Commemorative Coin for the 30 July Revolution. These were available from the Central Bank in Baghdad as well as the Mosul Branch and Basra Branch. Made in silver, it's more weighty in hand than it appears. Any additional information you guys have I would appreciate it.

Thanks

Tony

The top of the case. It's plastic but fairly decent quality considering. It has the small booklet inside expaining the issue of the coin, the gold, silver, and bronze types, and the gold and silver content of the various types. I'm not a coin or tabel medal type guy but this seemed too interesting to pass up.

Hey Lorenzo

Yes I got it at Liberty. Go see our friend at the bazaar, with all the rugs and carpets. I got it from him. I know he had others, not this exact one, but he has others there.

Man, I seen his stuff he has a lot of great items but the prices went up. Like the King Faisel II Coronation Medal English mint silver, He has 2 of them. The prices for them is $450.00 each. I thank God I was able to get my 4 that I have for $100.00 a piece back in 2005. I Read in a JOMSA article only 5000 were made 500 were ship to Iraq. I wonder what happen to the other 4500 of them???

Thank you

Lorenzo

Hello,

I've had this coin case for along time and don't have a clue of went in it. My guess is Saudi Arabia.

thanks,

Hi Barry,

The dhow, palm tree and wavy lines representing the sea would suggest a Qatari connection. They are all elements in the Qatar state crest. However, they are not arranged in the same way and do not include camels or an oil well.

Perhaps it has something to do with a presentation or commemorative medallion from a state oil company or related enterprise?

Cheers,

James

    • Sounds great other than the Orange & Mango squash only because I prefer cran-pomegranate juice.
    • "(...) disgusting herbal concoction (...)" I took note of this description, to enrich my otherwise limited, English "Wortschatz"...
    • At work the standard indian tea such as PG tips is referred to as chimp tea. This goes back to the days when we had a Spanish girl working for us whose command of the English language was extremely limited. One lunch she said she was going to the shop could she get anything. I asked if she could get a pack of tea bags. She returned with some disgusting herbal concoction. I tried to explain what was required but without success. I then remembered PG tips had a picture of a chimpanzee on the packe
    • When I read Lapsang Souchong i decided to post something about these Tea . Many years ago I dont  know about Lapsang until I read James Michener book Centennial and the description of the savour of the Lapasang as a mix of tar and salt & smoked made me proof . It was exact ! and i liked it since then .
    • I have been known to drink Lapsang Souchong and Tea, Earl Grey, Hot... both "without pollutants". I normally have one mug of coffee in the morning, then spend the rest of the day drinking Orange & Mango squash (by the pint). Then evening comes and it's a pint, followed by red wine with dinner and sometimes a drop of Laphroaig afterwards.
