Nice idea for a thread--here is my favorite (a silver Didrachm from Luciania, Velia):

-----Ghanaian proverb

"The danger we all now face is distinguishing between what is authentic and what is performed."

I love the lion portrait on that Ethiopian piece!

Here's a fun set from India, made by the Yadavas of Devagiri, ca. 1200-1400. Their engravers forgot to train the future generations, so the lions degrade quickly into dots. I haven't firmly attributed these to a ruler yet. These are itty bitty ~8mm coins that weigh about 1 gram.

1813 Great Britain. Essex. Walthamstow Half Penny Token
I have a nicer one but this is a better image of my duplicate.
I am pretty sure these circulated in Canada somewhat and possibly a little circulation acceptance in the US.
