The Sun is the star at the center of the Solar System, it´s enormous effect of the Sun on Earth has been recognized since prehistoric times, and the Sun has been regarded by some cultures as a deity.

Many countries and cultures has used the Sun on their coins and even portrayed it with a human face.

Here are a few of the specimens I have handled:

Seljuqs of Rum, Kaykhusraw II. Silver Dirham Coin. (1237-1246 AD) Konya mint (present day Turkey).



Italian States, Mantua (City), Francesco II Gonzaga. Silver Soldino Coin. (1484-1519 AD)




1675, Sweden, Queen Christina Alexandra. Bronze Medal.




1834, Spain, Écija. "Friends of the Country Economic Society" Medal.



1853, India, Indore State (British Protectorate). Silver 1/8 Rupee Coin.



1850, India, Indore State (British Protectorate). Silver ˝ Rupee Coin.



1890, India, Indore State, Tukoji Rao III. Silver 1/8 Rupee Coin.



1892, India, Indore State, Tukoji Rao III. Nice Silver Rupee Coin.

Very interesting examples and some neat looking designs for sure.

I have an interesting observation though...

If one of these were slabbed, couldn't it be called a Ra slabbed coin?

- When I value " being right" more than what IS right, I am then right...a fool.
- How much squash could a Sasquatch squash if a Sasquatch would squash squash?
