Recently obtained this Dutch token celebrating 800 years of City Rights of the town of 's Hertogenbosch. The token features the local allegorical character "Gerritje". The reverse shows the city seal.

The token is from a series of four (nickel, bronze, silver, gold). I hope to be able to acquire all four of them as I think they are one of the most beautiful local tokens produced in The Netherlands.

What a fun token.

While I am no longer actively adding to my collection, I enjoy seeing what others are finding. Jeff

Oh that I was where I would be,
Then I would be where I am not,
Here I am where I must be,
Go where I would, I can not.

You're probably aware the use of that seal on coins has quite a long history: https://en.numista.com/catalogue/pieces96267.html

Great additions to the thread.

1962 circa The Seagram Tower Niagara Falls Token
Bought this at the Coin Club auction tonight for $1.50 just so it would sell because I was the auctioneer for the members. I kinda like it.
I have been there to Niagara Falls Canada side in 1986. I don't remember seeing it though. Most focus is on the falls I suppose.
This was probably used as an elevator token to go to the observation area.


Now this is known as The Konica Minolta Tower in Niagara Falls, Canada. It originally opened in 1962, is located in the Fallsview district, and was the first of the modern observation towers built near the brink of the Falls.
The Tower Hotel was originally called the Seagram Tower, named after the House of Seagram business in Montreal.


My favorite album!

Not a recent acquisition, but had to share the cart wheel effect on this silver dollar size 1960 US Mint medal (aka "original Ike", President of the United States (POTUS) special Government medal(sGm), or Class 2 POTUS sGm).

Designed by Frank Gasparro. US Mint struck these medals for President Eisenhower's use. This medal is DDE-C2-05, in the organized US Mint medal series, as documented in the book, Authoritative Numismatic Reference: Presidential Medal of Appreciation Series 1958 - 1963, by Darryl A. Gomez 2014.

This medal was initially cataloged as B-898, an individual medal in the book Coins, Medals and Token of the Philippines 1728 - 1974, 2nd Edition, page 158, by Aldo P. Asso, 1975. This book provided a physical description and the note, "These medals were presented by Eisenhower during his visit to the Philippines in 1960." The manufacturer, designer, and mintage were not provided, unlike the 2014 book published research findings.

There are 7 other silver dollar size "original Ikes". The dual torch is the obverse and is common on all 8 Class 2 medals. The reverse design changed base on the needs of the President Eisenhower.




An intriguing US Mint medal series whose members are actual "POTUS numismatic artifacts" manufactured by the US Mint.
