Hi puzzle, if you want to use that you could use it like this;

This coin, minted in 1920, is worth more than that one, minted in 1970.

Hi, If we are talking about coins in general, as opposed to specific coins, then "A coin minted in 1920 is worth more than one minted in 1970" is correct.

You are perfectly correct!

(I was working off the example in post #5, not post #1. I will delete my post so that it doesn't confuse the readers.)

bhaisahab, thanks!

:-D;-)
