Those are some really neat coins though!


And I can't help pointing out the common symbol of the double-barred cross in both Lorraine and Hungary. I think this cross arrived in Lorraine through the Angevin dukes in the 1400 (this dynasty had previously ruled in Hungary).

Yes, the double-barred cross (or Patriarchal cross) is the symbol of state power of Hungary around from early 1300's. When René of Anjou (1409-1480) inherited Duchy of Lorraine, he thought he was the king in Hungary as well (but not), and he started using the white double-barred cross in Duchy of Lorraine. A few centuries later, it was referred to in the Western heraldic literature as the Lorraine cross.

Please excuse me if it doesn't fit here - but denomination of 19.18 EUR or 19 Euros and 18 cents looks pretty odd for me. Please meet Lithuanian so-called "first innovative blockchain coin" - a silver commemorative issue dedicated to Declaration of independence on February 16th 1918. Credit card size coin was issued in quite unusual way almost a month ago.

It certainly does.

@Ezhik,


Here is a link to the Bank of Lithuania announcement on this item. https://www.lb.lt/lt/naujienos/skat...oneta-lbcoin

Very interesting innovation!

A couple that seem worthy of posting... 1/83.5 and 1/250.5
From the mid-1760s to the end of statehood in 1795, the Polish-Lithuanian commonwealth began denominating their coins is both the local currency (zloty, with 1 zl = 4 groschen), and the Cologne mark. Initially this resulted in nice round numbers (1 zloty = 4 groschen = 1/80 mark), but with some debasement in the 1780s, it became more messy.

Here is a 1787 1 zloty silver coin, with the denominations 4 Gr and 1/83.5 Mark on the reverse:



Here is a 1790 10 grosze billon coin also denominated as 1/250.5 Mark on the reverse:

I think the original organizer of this thread had decided to count all those "X one fine mark" comments as weights rather than denominations - the way some 19th and 20th century coins would mention that they contained X grams (or other units, e.g. in Russia) of pure silver.

They're certainly neat, though!
