Have a coin queued up, trying to think of a good contest theme. Maybe I'd just end up doing a popularity contest, been a while since we've had one IIRC.

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.

Must be a queue like the ones you guys had at the end of the Soviet Union to buy bread and stuff?

Patience is a mine and mine is exhausted.

I think we should throw it over to someone else if we have to wait much longer, as we are not getting any younger.

If it's round, shiny and silvery I will love it.

OK, posting coin. (I kept getting distracted over the last few days, and forgot to post earlier. I also hoped that a theme - as in a way to count the points, at least - will come into my head, but it never did.)



Principality of the Russian treasure-seeker Yury Kharchuk
1 kubyshka (pot), 2002

If none of you can provide me a good contest theme either: just post your favorite coin/coin-like item from something that isn't a real coin issuer! And then we'll make a popularity contest out of it.

(Micronation, fictional country, maybe something else if you can think of a good one.)

Micronation theme:

Hutt River Province 50 cents 1977
Formed as a joke over a legal dispute with the Australian government, and maintained as a "sovereign nation" and tourist attraction until the project folded last year due to COVID

Sorry, waiting until at least there's more than one eligible entry. I'll probably close this in a few more days even if there's no other entries, but for now I'd rather wait a little.

Micronation Theme

Lundy Island - One Puffin 1929




This Island in the Bristol Channel between Devon and Southern Wales was brought by an eccentric businessman in 1924 and he declared himself king of it. He issued stamps and coins in 1929 denominated in Puffins (1 Puffin = 1 Penny).

The stamps were allowed, but issuing the coins of and 1 puffin (Which were smaller than their English equivalents) saw him fined 5 in 1933. Today these coins are curiosities.

The stamps are still issued to this day and Lundy has been owned by the Landmark Trust since 1969 when the Businessman's surviving daughters gave them the island.
