Albania 1 Frang Ar and 2 Franga Ari  1935 to 1937
Albania 1 Frang Ar and 2 Franga Ari 1935 to 1937

These are nice silver coins from Albania. The pattern is the same on both 1 and 2 denomination coins, but the 2 franga ari is larger than the 1 frang ar, and, of course, the denomination is spelled out specifically on each.

1 FRANG AR: 0.134 troy ounces silver
2 FRANGA ARI: 0.268 troy ounces silver

These coins are quite rare. Only a few were minted and not many survive. The 1937 date is worth a tad more than the 1935 date. The listing below shows approximate catalog values for the 1935 dated coins.

2 FRANGA ARI

Comments

You have the values for 1 and 2 Frang Ar, but not 1/2. Could you add that? - FifthWatch
As far as we know, Albania did not mint a 1/2 frang coin. The catalogs show coins with denominations qindar, leku, and lek, but no 1/2 frang. Please wait for the pending appraisal requests to clear and then submit your own request for the coin you have. - CoinQuest (Paul)

Yeah, your right. Sorry, it looked a lot like the 1 and 2 franga ar that I have, but I missed the LEK below the 1/2. Thank you though. - FifthWatch
