Here is my blog top 10 coins list for 2010. This list is based on how many people read or view that story for a year. Not every story of coins will get a good read by reader all over the worlds. Most readers are looking for information about some particular coins like how to detect the counterfeit coins, How to check if your coin is rare, world record, details about the coins, where to buy and sell or the coins price and value. The first in the list is the highest ranking in the list. Some of the coins maybe don't have a good view maybe because my blog not focusing talking about them. I just want to share my top view post for 2010.
This coin shock everyone in 2009 when many seller in eBay selling them with a buy now option as high as £20,000. This is also the first time since 300 years, British coin without date come into circulation. The problem occurred after all the coins from the 1p through to the £1 were redesigned in 2008. Recently, a Mint is offering £100 for the mule coin.
After the story about the 20 pence, a news about a grandmother from Bridgwater, Somerset found a rare 1 penny silver coin emerged. The coin found by Tania Simmonite at the market stall where she sells cheese, the piece appears to have been released into circulation without undergoing the usual copper-plating process. Royal Mint had confirmed that this is a genuine monetary unit. I am not sure whether she sold the coins or not.
Toonie is Canada 2 dollar bi-metallic circulation coin which bears an image of polar bear which was introduced on 19 February 1996. The name do not came from that polar bear instead come from Canada one dollar coin "loonie". The name Toonie became so widely accepted that in 2006 the Royal Canadian Mint secured the rights to it. In April 2010, a wrong report by a TV station in Toronto regarding a fake toonies make everyone searching for information about it. The different Queen images for two coins mistakenly thought as fake by the TV station.

In the final 2010 FIFA World Cup, Spain, the European champions, defeated third-time finalists the Netherlands 1–0 after extra time. To commemorate this great success for Spanish sports, the Royal Spanish Mint has minted a new coin set entitled "World Champions South Africa 2010" composed of two coins, one of .999 gold and the other of sterling silver.
This is one of my coin collection; one rupee British India King George V 1918 silver coin. I bought this coin in Penang. This story of the coin, one of the earliest post I made for this blog in 2008. Some people still reading it maybe because the story about its history.
Even most of my readers are from Malaysia, this coin only make it in top 6. Most probably because there are many Malaysia blog talking about this 1971 10 sen with only 32,236 pieces minted. Story by local news about how only few of this coins minted, in 1971, Malaysia coin were minted in West Germany. That coin are the last time for a Malaysia coin minted overseas. In the same year, some coins were minted in the money factories of Bank Negara Malaysia in Shah Alam. However, the coin minted limited to only 10 cents coins. Floods that struck the Selangor and Kuala Lumpur affect the operation of mint when flood overflow into the printer. The incident caused only have time to 32,000 pieces minted.
This coin became a news when a couple Brian and Penny Drury, of Palmer Street, stumbled across the rare find in a collectors' pack bought 26 years ago. Many people have two pence in their drawer like this couple but only 1983 2 pence with the word new pence on it consider as rare. One website states that the odds of finding a 1983 'new pence' coin are around one in 14,000,000. Consider yourself lucky if you found one of this coin. If you're intended to sale your coin, the price on eBay is between £500 to £700.

A story about Melaka Portuguse Tin coin I found in Internet. The story tempted me to collect the tin coins. I normally don't buy tin since many of fake or replica out there. but if the price is right, I don't mind consider buying it and sharing it here.
