Ziggstah writes: I found a coin that has the words II skill dans written on the reverse and a coat of arms with three stacked lions on the obverse … This coin has eluded identification from me for years if the general description doesn’t help in the identification process i could send a pic part of the date is missing but the half that’s there is 77. I believe its from Norway. Help
You have a 1677 Denmark, silver, 2 skillings (16 skillings=1 mark 12 marks=1 ducat). The obverse shows a crowned shield (lions) within a circle, legend around (the titles of Christian V- 1670-1699). The reverse shows II SKILL DANS within an inner circle; around, legend and date. Value depends on condition (grade). Low grade or damaged examples bring US $3 – $5.
