Egypt 1, 5, 10 Milliemes and 5 Piastres  1972 and 1973
Egypt 1, 5, 10 Milliemes and 5 Piastres 1972 and 1973

You will need to understand Eastern Arabic numerals (see insert) to interpret the date and denomination of these coins. They are modern coins, dated 1972AD and 1973AD on the Western Gregorian calendar, or AH1391 and AH1392 on the Islamic Hijri calendar.

The Islamic falcon shows on the front of these coins, and the denomination on the back. There is another Egyptian coin with a similar falcon at this CoinQuest link.

The 5 milliemes coin looks similar to the 5 piastre coin, but their size is different:

5 MILLIEMES (large version in aluminum): 20 mm diameter
5 MILLIEMES (small version in brass): 17 mm
5 PIASTRES: 25 mm

As to value, these are modern, low-value coins made of aluminum, brass, or copper-nickel. Normal circulated coins are worth less than $1 US dollar each. If you can find a fully uncirculated coin, like the one in our picture, a collector might pay a few US dollars to add it to his or her collection.

Coin: 13979 , Genre: Islamic Hindu Buddhist
