This could be a fun thing to collect, but not necessarily a cheap pursuit, since it was a recurring theme in American commemorative half dollars, some of which are pretty pricey. The Columbian Exposition, Hudson N.Y. Sesquicentennial, and the Pilgrim, Huguenot-Walloon, Delaware, and Long Island Tercentenary issues would all qualify for inclusion, along with the 2000 Lief Ericson silver dollar. Canada has also had several commemoratives of this ilk. The 1979 and 1987 dollars, and the 2001 and 2005 $20 issues come to mind.

In regular coinage intended for circulation, the New Zealand 50¢ piece (minted from 1967 to the present) bearing a very pleasing rendition of HMS Endeavour stands out. This specimen is the older version that was demonetised several years ago in favor of a smaller, ferrous replacement.

Who else has something to show along these lines? And by no means consider any of the coins mentioned above as thus being out of bounds.

I have a new big purchase (an ancient coin) which perfectly fits this topic, but I have a policy of not posting anything until I have the coin in hand. I'll follow up once I receive it :)

Another faux pas on my part for which I submit a mea culpa and an apology. I wouldn't have started this topic had I realized it'd already been so thoroughly covered.

I'll post another couple of photos just because I'm already here....

Do not sweat it!

The old thread is, well, old. Had you managed to find it and posted there, someone (but definitely not me) might have made a point of you "raising the dead" (meaning it in good fun, of course)

Again, no foul, all fun. Carry on!

Just picked mine up today. It's one of the most sought-after ancient coins and I'm delighted to finally own one after waiting for years to find the right example:



Nero augustus, 54 " 68
Sestertius circa 64, Æ 22.85 g. NERO CLAVDIVS CAESAR AVG GER P M TR P IMP P P Laureate head r., with aegis. Rev. AVG " VST Bird's eye view of Ostia's harbour. At the top, pharos surmounted by statue of Neptune, holding sceptre; at bottom, reclining figure of Tiber l., holding rudder and dolphin; below, PORT OST. To l. crescent shaped pier with portico. To r., crescent-shaped row of breakwaters. In the centre, seven ships. In upper field, S " C. C 37. BMC 134. RIC 181. CBN ". Very rare. A very attractive specimen of this celebrated issue, well-centred on a very broad flan and complete. A bold portrait and a finely detailed reverse, attractive dark green patina and extremely fine

As an inland city of more than one million people during the reign of Nero, Rome relied heavily upon its Tyrrhenian Sea port at Ostia. Antioch, the great metropolis in Syria, was similarly positioned, as it was about the same distance (c. 15 miles) from its Mediterranean port at Seleucia. Though essential to major inland cities, ports and harbours were perhaps the most challenging of all engineering projects, and they were very costly to build and to maintain. It comes as no surprise that when great ports were completed, it was cause for celebration.

To Romans, such occasions not only affirmed their international renown as engineers, but also represented a new opportunity to reap benefits in transportation, trade, grain supplies and military applications. The construction of a port at Ostia had been considered by both Julius Caesar and Augustus, but the projected expenses were so daunting that it was not until Claudius came to power that construction began; finally, it was finished during the reign of his adoptive son Nero.
