I bought this from the Monnaie de Paris shop in Paris on Friday - a 2022 French BU set. The 1- and 2-euro coins have a new 'National' obverse with a stylised tree. Euro nations apparently have the right to change their 'National' obverses only every 20 years - unless they show their Head of State on the coins, in which case they can change the portrait to a new Head of State. So far, France and San Marino are the only Eurozone countries (other than monarchies) to have adopted new 'National' obverse designs:

The dark and light spots are shadows and reflection from the holder prongs. I will need to take better photos if/when I crack this one out and place in the Dansco.
And here we have it!

While it's not the latest, it was the last coin and one of the only coins my Dad bought me as a gift, he and Mom went on a company trip that took them to Puerto Rico. I got a pretty neat handwritten authentication card with it as well. The coin is from the first mint in the Americas - Santo Domingo a Spanish mint established on the island known as the Domincan Republic today.


click for a much larger view.

Here is a bit of information on these coins:

This Spanish copper coin is known as a cuarto, or four maravedis, and was minted in Santo Domingo on the Spanish-controlled Caribbean island of Hispaniola. Dating c. 1542-56.

The obverse, or primary side of the coin, contains a crowned gothic "Y" flanked by the assayer mark "F". Occasionally, the names of assayers working at different mints during specific times are known and can be determined from marks on the coinage. In this case the individual responsible for ensuring that this coin contained the correct amount or purity of metal was an individual named Francisco Rodriguez. The denomination "4" is also present on the obverse side, and the legend "CAROLUS ET IOANNA", indicating Charles I and Joanna of Castille, rulers of Spain between 1504-1555.

The reverse side of the coin depicts the crowned columns of Hercules flanked by the mint mark "S" and "P" for Santo Domingo del Puerto, with the legend "REGIS ISPANIARUM ET" (Indiarum), King of Spain and the Indies.

I haven't given this coin a bath in the Verdi-Care yet, as I just pulled it out of a box where it's been hiding for almost 3 and half decades thought to be lost or stolen in the burglary that almost wiped me out in the early 1980's. So NOT my most recent acquisition but the most recent one, I re-acquired, just last night.

Still looking for the cool handwritten card (about 6" x 9") which came with the coin and includes nice drawings of this coin both obverse and reverse.

Great looking medal, @Dearborn.
I've got a new coin for my collection of Coins of Composers: a 1992 500 Lire coin featuring Gioacchino Rossini (1792-1868).
