Norway 1, 2, 4, and 8 Skilling  1809 to 1811
Norway 1, 2, 4, and 8 Skilling 1809 to 1811

Yo, PJ -- Nice coin! -- Norway was Danish until 1914, so the big FR on the front of your coin stands for king Frederik the sixth of Denmark. All denominations from 1 to 4 skillings were minted in copper, but the 8 skilling was minted in silver and has somewhat different inscriptions on the reverse side. The script FR appears on all denominations. Some coins have rosettes on the date side.

Here are some approximate catalog values for these old coins.
