This is my Egyptian 2 Piastres coin featuring King Farouk, it was minted in 1937 out of .833 silver by the British Royal Mint.
Farouk became king of Egypt when his dad Fuad I died in 1936, he was only 18 at the time and was studying in London, the first of these coins were minted in 1937, further production was only in 1939 and 1942, and of the years produced some are far rarer than others as seen below, 

1937,  500,000 minted
1939,  500,000 minted
1942,  10,000,000 minted

Most I see are quite well worn so I was really happy to find this UNC one I love the design of this coin, plus the fact I wonder how many were melted down when the king had to go into exile due to his country revolting against him and his excesses.
In 1944 this denomination of coin was made in a hexagonal shape and now of .500 silver, it was made for one year only with 32,000,000 being minted.

I originally ordered this coin on 19 March and returned it to the Royal Mint after speaking with them by email, because it was jammed inside its capsule (the capsule was too small for the coin).  They received the returned coin on 2 April.

After waiting almost 3 months and chasing them multiple times by email, phone and their facebook page, the replacement coin arrived today.

Unbelievably - it was also sent out in a capsule that was too small for the coin.... 💣😠😲🥵

This time, however, I have managed to extract the coin from the capsule (very carefully and painstakingly) and put it into a capsule that actually fits the coin properly.

The coin is not perfect, it has a couple of small nicks - likely to have been caused when it was originally pressed into the too-small capsule - but I can live with it.  I certainly have no desire to send this one back, wait another 3 months, only to receive yet another coin in a too-small capsule...

I will chalk it up to experience, and only order from them again unless the product I want is completely unavailable anywhere else.

Anyway - here it is:
