Always thougth that the 1 cash 1901 from Travancore ( hypertext transfer protocol : //ontopwiki.com/catalogue/pieces25369.html ) was the smallest but your Panama coin beats it with 0.5 mm .neilithic

The Maundy pennies from the UK were besides about 10mm, but they ‘re not actually circulating coins .

I believe the australian 50 cent mint to be one of the largest circulate coins to date measure in at 31.5mm although the crown size is 32mm but I ‘m indisputable they are largely not circulating commemoratives .

Gold Coin from the Portuguese King João V- DOBRÃO, minted at Minas Gerais/Brazil in 1725.
It has 38 mm and 53.8 g.

However, my biggest coin is a Bronze coin, casted at AZORES by the Portuguese Queen Maria II in 1829.  It is a 80 Réis and the people called it MALUCO (Crazy).
It has 42 mm and 28 g.

And now, the smallest.  I have in gold 1 Fanan from Cochin/Índia.
It has 7mm and 0.3g
 
But this is not the smallest coins of my collection since I have from the Macedonian Empire, one Hemobiol (460-423 AC).
It has 6,5mm and 3,6 g.

The way I understood the question was more on coins in circulation at present, as for crowns, I know that they we’re well circulated as I have many myself, but current day crowns do not circulate for instants all UK £5 coins are the replacement crowns but are not produced for circulation although they are legal tender.
If I miss read the question then the largest circulation coin I currently have is this one.
China 1913 200 cash measuring in at 42.64mm.
I do have coins that are much larger but these are not circulating coins and one measure around 115mm If I remember correctly.

Smallest always in circulation : quarter tara of Vijayanagar, .06 grams silver, ~4 mm
Largest ever struck : credibly hush Australia ‘s 1 million dollar gold bullion, 80 centimeter ( yes, centimeter ! ! ! ) in diameter, 12 centimeter wide, 1 metric ton in weight

If you ‘re asking about post-WWII circulation neologism, I would look at USSR for both :
1 kopek = 10 millimeter
5 rubles – 35 millimeter

Falkland Islands besides struck a number of 38.61 mm 50 Pence copper-nickel commemoratives ( excessively big to fit in a 2×2 holder ! ), but I ‘m not surely they circulated.

For modern silver, australian lunar calendar coins are quite large at 45.1 millimeter

Hahaha, I want to see that circulating.
Nevertheless, nice you mentioned it, because I never heard about it and I find it quite interesting.  I’ve got a 800 g. copper coin (non circulating) and it looks like a dwarf now in comparison with your Australian coin.

“the largest are 3.6 meters (12 ft) in diameter, 0.5 meters (1.5 ft) thick and weigh 4 metric tons (8,800 lb)” – and they did circulate 🙂

The largest gold coin minted in the ancients was 20 gold staters from baktria but romans did use ingots made out of different metals but those were n’t coins.
smallest are probably from ancient india because I have seen many less than 10mm in diameter gold coins but I do n’t remember what denomination they were or where in india they circulated.
In katanga they used traverse shaped copper ingots of diverse sizes as currency and the largest weighted around 1kg ( they let me hold one in my hands in the british museum and it was huge )
The 50 reales coin from spain is besides huge coin but I ‘m not certain if it circulated and if it did it was indeed much money that a convention spanish proletarian credibly was never going to use one to buy something
The largest coin I have is a 2 penny copper coin from great britain and it ‘s 41mm in diameter and weights 2 ounces and those were used alot back when they circulated early like some of the coins that I mentioned earlier

The smallest coin by weight is the nepalese dam, but by diameter it is the 1/96 staters of ancient Greece and Anatolia, I ‘ve seen them vitamin a small as 3mm across.

The largest regular coinage would be the swedish plate money previously mentioned above.

Back to the topic; I haven’t participated in this old thread but since we now have easy-peasy way of checking which are our smallest and biggest coins (records in My coins), my smallest coin by diameter is a Maldives 1/4 Larin from 1883; while my smallest by weight is a British Maundy penny from 1877.

Biggest by diameter is actually a 1953 coronation medallion made from plated lead (I think); my biggest diameter coin is a 1768 Ottoman Altmislik; and by weight it would be my 1797 British cartwheel twopence. never thought I ‘d say this for a gimmicky RCM product made in the last 20 years, but it ‘s tragic to hear that the coin is probably melted down by immediately …. there ‘s something about the “ giant coin ” concept that appeals to most people.Back to the topic ; I have n’t participated in this previous weave but since we now have easy-peasy manner of checking which are our smallest and biggest coins ( records in My coins ), my smallest coin by diameter is a Maldives 1/4 Larin from 1883 ; while my smallest by system of weights is a british Maundy penny from 1877.Biggest by diameter is actually a 1953 coronation medallion made from plated leave ( I think ) ; my biggest diameter mint is a 1768 Ottoman Altmislik ; and by weight it would be my 1797 british silver dollar twopence .gextyr

I have a 1831 20 Lepta mint – it is only 33mm, but since it is therefore thick, it does n’t comfortably fit in a 40mm 2×2 flip. thus … it is n’t arsenic wide as a crown, but it is bulky as heck : )

​I don’t hate Africans, just the corrupt leaders who rape their countries and keep them impoverished. The colonial masters also are to blame for not training them up for Independence so these clowns like Mobutu, Amin, Bokassa, Bongo, Toure, Mugabe and others issued vanity coins like these, whilst common people died from poverty and violence.

Sadly a high percentage of the most disfunctional countries were French, whereas most British countries excepting Zimbabwe were much more stable. The Portuguese were all basket cases destroyed by communism.

Anyway back to coins – No one has commented on my I Tonne gold coin – and it got stolen in Germany (How on earth does one steal a gold tonne coin). ​I do n’t hate Africans, fair the bribe leaders who rape their countries and keep them impoverished.

Quote: “Moneytane”​Of circulating coins – In the late 1970s, Franklin Mint did sets for the newly independent Papua New Guinea which featured the standard 1 toea to 1 kina coins.
​​​
​​​But they also included 5 Kina and 10 Kina coins, the 5 Kina was 41mm in size same as the Tongan 2 pa’anga, but the 10 Kina was 45mm in size. Issued in Silver and Copper Nickel, some of the latter apparently circulated, despit ebing no circulated.

​​​Many countries like Sharjah, Haiti, Equatorial Guinea, Guinea, Gabon and other 3rd world countries issued a series of gimmicky gold and silver commem coins in the late 60s and early 70s, some were 80mm in size. One from some French African Banana Republic had a naked woman on it called “Femme Somba”

​​​The man on it was bonkers, believing he was a witch doctor, tried to restart electricity by using African magic, had thousands of people shot in the National stadium whilst “The Days of our lives” was playing and buried $10 mil of forign bank notes in the sand and it rotted.

​​​Most of these coins were silly vanity pieces and none have kept their value today being worth melt only.

​​​I realy can not apreciate the way you talk about Africa, it is completly unneccesary and insulting also…
​​This topic was about big or small coins, nothing more. Nobody is intrested in your personal view on Africans.
​​To be honest, I also do not like this kind of coins. But your comment is total crap. Sorry for my
​​ poor English but I am sure you got my point.

​​I don’t hate Africans, just the corrupt leaders who rape their countries and keep them impoverished. The colonial masters also are to blame for not training them up for Independence so these clowns like Mobutu, Amin, Bokassa, Bongo, Toure, Mugabe and others issued vanity coins like these, whilst common people died from poverty and violence.

​I agree with you on this. But the words you used were not nescesary to make your point. And about
foolish leaders, I do not want to mention names, but here in Europa they are available in all kinds
and sizes. ​I agree with you on this. But the words you used were not nescesary to make your decimal point. And aboutfoolish leaders, I do not want to mention names, but here in Europa they are available in all kindsand sizes. … you can run, but you ca n’t hide …

The coin stolen in Germany that was canadian exit was only 100 KG or 220 pounds. There may be a long ton coin but that was not it.
The conceit pieces from Africa are not selling for bullion. They sell for a set more. When they can be found.
Gabonnaise is african mayonnaise ? Huh ?
