Luxembourg 25 Centimes 1919 to 1980

'Letzeburg' or 'Letzebuerg' is German (or perhaps Luxembourgish) for 'Luxembourg' and appears sometimes on their coins. The coins are made of several different metals, including iron, bronze, copper-nickel, aluminum and silver. The patterns and inscriptions are quite similar as well. Our secondary picture shows some of the variations.

In general, if you find a coin with medal alignment, it is rare. Here is how to determined medal alignment. Hold the coin between your thumb and forefinger with the thumb at the bottom and the forefinger at the top. Now flip the coin from left to right, like turning the page of a book. If the pattern on the second side is right-side up, then you have medal alignment. Most coins display the second side up-side down.
