Not a high grade one compared to AcesKings, but I like to add variety into my Dansco 7070 album, and this one fits in.

One of my favourite British coins, and one I saved my pocket money for as a teenager - 1797 Cartwheel twopence. To me it's a 'must have' British coin!

A revolutionary coin when it was issued, for many reasons:
- Officially struck under contract by a private company (Matthew Boulton's Soho Mint in Birmingham)
- Britain's first and only base metal pre-decimal twopenny coin
- Weighed 2 ounces and contained its face value in copper
- Helped alleviate the shortage of silver coins and replace the fake copper coins and unofficial tokens that made up much of the currency in circulation

Very nice Cartwheel NumisRob, leaves mine to shame.

Now Day 8 one of my favourite designs on a NZ token. The craze for Maori art and motifs really took off in the 1870s and 1880s and the Alliance Tea Company tokens called "Advance New Zealand" are amongst the finest for detail and imagery. Most of the "Maori art" was deriative and came off wrong, this is a great example of that - someone who had likely never met a tattooed Maori or seen one outside of the towns.
Sadly the art is naive as heck, the whorls on the man's face do not look very Maori and the whole thing is rather guessworky - still a unique piece of Kiwiana!



1881 Penny Token - Alliance Tea Company - "Advance New Zealand"

The Maori chief holds a very native American style blanket and the hair style is very Roman empire, however they have the taiaha head (Spear) right. The other side has a man who looks like an African king in a toga next to a Maori canoe with a thick beaked Kiwi. The king/chief holds up a weird blanket/mat with 4 panels showing plant ears next to a badly drawn cabbage tree fern and some pointy hills. He also holds a patu or mere (Club), that looks like a maraca! next to a very gnarled tree. Words escape me and no doubt anyone who received this exotic momento from NZ back in 1881!
Loving Halfcrowns. British and Commonwealth coins 1750 - 1950 and anything Kiwi.
If it's round, shiny and silvery I will love it.

A perennial fave of mine,but then again I'm a sucker for sailing ships anyway!
I'm caretaker of this dollar, it was given to my son by his uncle on his first birthday( in '92) which initially was given to his uncle on his own first birthday back in 1950.

When my son ever decides to pass this one along,which I'm certain he will, I'll gladly hand it over to the next caretaker. I'll keep it safe til then!

Years ago, in my early days as a budding numismatist, my father encouraged my interest by showing me the pile of constitutional silver he had culled from change in the early sixties. The stash contained primarily Walking Liberty half dollars. I noticed early on that he didn't have one from his birth year. When I started my first full-time job, I decided to purchase one for his birthday. Still wet behind the ears from the standpoint of understanding what to look for when purchasing coins, I zeroed in on this beauty - it was shiny and has decent detail. I realized years later that I had purchased a cleaned coin. But, this coin is a tangible link to my father who passed away nearly 30 years ago.

1935 Walking Liberty half dollar

With 3 more to go, I needed a coin that represented the number 3. But which one?

I figure since I like all, why not include all.

First off is the 3 cent silver or the trime. The smallest US coin.



As the 3 cent silver was hoarded, the US Mint produced a 3 cent Nickel



Not only did we have a silver 3 cents and a 3 cent nickel, we also had a 3 cent note.




So on the day that we had 3 more coins to post, we do an ode to the number 3, a unique time in US Mint and US Currency history and some of my favorite coins (and paper).
