When I started grad school, I knew exactly how I was going to reward myself when I was done. I wanted a coin to commemorate my time working on my PhD. Over the course of the next seven years I worked, and along the way I added an MFA in literary translation to the mix, but I always kept in sight the specific coin I wanted. It'd be perfect as a memento of the effort because part of the campus I was studying at would be on the coin.

Well, I defended my dissertation in May and I'm now Dr. SaintRidley. Two weeks from tomorrow, I walk for commencement, and I decided now was the time to reward myself and get my graduation coin. It didn't take much effort at all to talk the dealer into a $5 discount, so I'm happy about that too.

Anyway, here it is.

All that you need to do now is the easy part-get a job. Congratulations and best of luck. When you get a job you can reward yourself with something else.

Oriole, easier said than done. Medieval literature is not exactly a booming field. Fortunately my translation MFA significantly expands the number of opportunities I can go for in academia.

Congratulations on the PhD!

It's always nice to add a coin with a meaningful personal connection to one's collection! And you've got a nice one there! I hope it's part of your collection for many years to come!

Congratulations! That's really a long slog (mine was 35 years ago), and a great reward for the perseverance.

In case you haven't discovered these parts of the Forum, there is an Ancient and Medieval area, and on the Main Coin Forum's thread "How Far Back..." we are posting late 15th century coins now. Deciphering some of the legends on those coins is a lot of fun, and probably fits with your skills.

Will your job search keep you in the U.S., or take you elsewhere?
