Missed this yesterday!

I'll start with the coin that started my collection when I was a kid. My teacher in primary school was talking about lighthouses and said that some pennies had lighthouses on them. I started looking at pennies my parents gave me for pocket money, and got very excited when I found one with both a lighthouse - and a ship!


In the mid-1960s it wasn't unusual to find 'Bun' pennies (issued 1860-94) in change, but they were usually worn flat. One in as (relatively) nice condition as this was quite a find!

My next contribution to the list is the 2009 Canada-Japan Friendship Silver $5 coin struck by the Royal Canadian Mint.

The coin's commemorative design is fully allegorical, using local flora and fauna to represent each country -- a white-tailed deer and maple tree for Canada (at right), and a shika deer and cherry blossom tree for Japan. The two deer stand side-by-side, to symbolize the friendly, harmonious relations between the two countries. To the left of the shika deer is seen the Japanese character "Wa" which translates into English as "harmony."

I've always been a big fan of allegory on coins, so this piece has been a favorite of mine since it was released.

Here is my next contribution, a Panama Canal completion medal.



These were carried on the SS Cristobal, the first ship transiting the newly completed canal in 1914.

In the 1950's Portugal undertook changes to modernize its economy, this coin commemorates the legislation.

t360 - I remember that coin on one of the How far vback can we go threads and you or someone mentioned how crazy that portrait of the Queen looked!

Anyway, a fantastic coin!
Loving Halfcrowns. British and Commonwealth coins 1750 - 1950 and anything Kiwi.
If it's round, shiny and silvery I will love it.

Great coins being posted on day 2 so far!

Here is my contribution, a Mariengroschen from the German City State of Aachen dated 1491 AD. This has been on my want list for well over a decade. So nice to have finally captured my white whale!

@Spence that's a very cool coin. The 4 in the date looks like an old style.
@AcesKings exceptionally nice - a shimmering beauty

My second coin is a 1907 British half-sovereign of King Edward VII. Not worth more than bullion, but treasured by me as it's the only gold coin I've ever found with my metal detector!

Back to Heritage, I was so used to seeing Queen Elizabeth portrait on the face of the coins as a child, when I immigrated to USA I wanted to understand and learned the country where I left off in later years.
This piece was one of the first I pick up here, I would like it even more if I can get rid of the small verdigris on the reverse.
