Morocco Falus (AH1276) 1859 to 1873
The coin in our picture shows the general look of a Moroccan falus dated between 1276 and 1290. The pattern changes slightly depending on the particular denomination, as follows:
falus: about 20 mm diameter
2 falus: about 22 mm diameter
3 falus: about 28 mm diameter
All these coins bear roughly the same value, although the 1 and 2 falus coins are a little more rare than the 3 falus, so their value is a tad higher.
worn: $5 US dollars catalog value
average circulated (like our picture): $15
well preserved: $50
These are catalog values which must be interpreted correctly. View our Important Terminology page to understand what 'catalog value' means.
The dates on Moroccan coins are Hejira (AH) dates based on the lunar year (354 days) and starting when Mohammed was alive (about 600 AD). The AH1276 to AH1290 dates correspond to 1859AD to 1873AD.
