Where the hell is this coin from? Jul. 20th, 2012 @ 11:55 PM Reply

A friend of mine got it today, and although I've travel around the world a couple of times (China, Japan, North and South Korea, India, England, USA) I've never seen a coin like this...

Any ideas?

I'd say take it to foreign exchange and they'll tell you AND transfer it's value in American money.

It's more valuable to have a coin because it's illegal to take the coins out of the country.

The current coins, yes. But it seems it's worth more since it's an old coin...I'll go tomorrow to a coin collectors house to see how much would they pay for it :)

A coin of 1995 won't worth a lot more than a normal coin nowadays.Expect less than 5 five dollars.

That coin is really cool and if the value is any less than $50 then I recommend keeping it. When else would you get a chance at keeping one?

Well, she (My friend) works at Burger King, so a costumer gave it to her and she thought it was a 10 (mexican) pesos... that's less of $1US dollar... if the coin is worth 5 dollars, we can say she was lucky...wasn't she? :)

Well, Morocco is pretty much Arabic. Their official language is... Spaniards and they would fight back in VII century...

And since it's money from an African nation it's extremely rare.

I went with a coin collector today and he'd buy it for 10 bucks :)

But since it's not mine, I'll keep it. Tomorrow I'll see my friend and I'll give it to her.

You should keep the coin. It looks rare ,and would be a good conversation starter.
