What is a coin with a crescent moon on it?


Answer by  patti (29325)

A lot of coins in the middle east include a crescent moon, a symbol of Islam, in the design. This is not to say that the crescent moon design is limited to countries in the middle east. Some antique coins from Great Britain include a crescent moon as well. A coin dealer could probably help you identify it.

The coin is certainly minted by a moslem country that frequently have a crescent moon motif on their currency. The crescent moon is for Islam what the cross signifies for Christianity; a motif extremely rich in history and symbolism. Pakistan is one country that has a crescent moon on its coinage.
