50 Piastres Silver Coin (1952)
Today's coin comes from Lebanon, a 50 Piastres Silver piece from 1952, or 50 Qirshā.
What I really like about this one is that there are no kings or queens or other faggots!
Instead, the front side has a cedar tree (a main feature of Lebanon's flag too) and reads
On the other, we got two oak branches with fruits and the denomination, 50 Piastres / 50 Qirshā.
Pretty much the size of a euro coin:
There's not much silver in this piece, 5 g of 0.600 silver or 3 grams of silver. With today's spot price that translates to 2.16 $.
Not great, but imo a lovely looking piece! Plus, I like the weird letters 😂
