I don't know how you do it, but that is incorrect.

I'm not a winner until Spruett says so.

I just take pictures of the important side, usually the date. Saves space in my 'puter. :)

Not really. We've had GM's cornered before. Myself included.

Nice coin Spruett.


Quote:

I have wondered about diameters on non round coins.
Do they measure the widest part or the narrowest part.

And there I was think it was only Americans that didn't know how to spell.

True, but I'm just being courteous.

Now I have to find a coin.

Nope, just my phone. I was planning on using the DSLR because I have other coins to photograph, but you guys guessed it before I got around to that.

I can tell you that the previous coin measures 20mm side-to-side and 24mm corner-to-corner, so I guess they use the smallest measurement.

I've had dodecagons and the like that Numista lists the diameter but they won't fit a coin capsule for that size so guess they take the distance between flat faces. Not sure how consistent it is. Should measure a UK 50p later on and compare to Numista.
