What might this medallion be?

Hi guys, I've bought this medallion from an auction, at first glance it looked good but I still don't know what is it and what's the worth of it.

Here it is: http://bit.ly/2qQ4r5K http://bit.ly/2rOeViZ

Did a little research on internet, found similar medallions issued by the same foundation but couldn't saw this one anywhere.

Thanks for your help

Braunschweig-Wolfenbüttel 1635 Thaler – Frederick Ulrich? via /r/numismatics


Braunschweig-Wolfenbüttel 1635 Thaler – Frederick Ulrich?

Hi. I've got this thaler with the name FRIDERIC VLRIC D.G. DUX BRVNS ET LV. It's dated 1635 but Frederick's wikipedia page says he died in August 1634.

Could it be that there were coins minted in the duke's name after his death? Did they get the date wrong by accident? Or is the coin fake?

So I won this auction for a commemorative FreeMason coin. Could it be worth something? Did I waste my money? via /r/numismatics

Here it is!
I just discovered it, noticed the lack of bids and decided why not, let's win this! And I did! Now I'm curious what it might be worth, or if I paid more than needed for it?
Any thoughts?

I don't know much about numismatics so I'm sorry if this is a wrong place to ask this question. I found these today. I think my grandfather got them in the US back in the 70's, what are these exactly? I only managed to find out that Michigan National Corporation Bank no longer exists, so if they are bonds or something they probably are not worth much anymore, right? Pic http://bit.ly/2oMoLVJ

$50 bill from 2013 with the letters “CSY” on the right side of the front of the bill; is it worth anything? via /r/numismatics


$50 bill from 2013 with the letters “CSY” on the right side of the front of the bill; is it worth anything?

I don't mean to sound like some ignorant asshole, so please forgive me if I do, but–as mentioned in the title–I have a $50 bill from 2013 with the letters "CSY" on the right side of the front of the bill and I'm wondering if that makes the bill worth anything other than its face value. Aforementioned letters are oriented in such a way that you have to turn the bill 90° counterclockwise to see the letters right side up.

I searched Google for at least ten minutes to see if I could find anything one way or the other and all I could discover (after rewording the inquiry numerous times) is that it doesn't seem to be a normal feature of $50s. I couldn't find a single image with "CSY" on the bill.

I checked to see if the bill was legit, and it seems to pass the usual checks (it has the appropriate watermarks and security strip and whatnot).

So… yeah. Is it worth anything? And if not, can someone at least tell me what the "CSY" stands for and why it's on the bill at all and apparently not on other $50s?

Please and thank you for any help anyone may be able to provide.
