Wow!! Never seen an egg shaped coin before. I take it it is supposed to be an Easter Egg?


Too bad I missed 2020. Could've added one.

It's supposed to be a Ukrainian Pysanka, which is a decorated Easter egg.

I have sadly acquired this 2018-dated coin several weeks too late to post it in the Fourth Edition, which started with 2017 (I tried to get an example of this type earlier, but they were rare and expensive in the first few days after official release).
I have posted it in the Fifth Edition (which started with 2018).

Now I'm posting it in the Sixth Edition.

Russia, 25 rubles, 2018.



...And yes, my photos suck. I apologize.

This type, commemorating the 2018 World Cup, had been officially released in December 2016 (!!); however, this was just before the holiday season, and the actual distribution was delayed for several weeks.
I got my example in February 2017, shortly after the distribution finally happened; those photos were taken on April 1, 2017 (for this excellent thread), after a month and a half of pocket piece duty.

I don't want to just post a random circulation coin here (which is why I had nothing for 2019); so for the recent years, I'm trying my best to post either something particularly exotic, or something with at least some story.

The coin below comes in under the "at least some story" category.



Kingdom of Thailand, Rama IX
25 satang (1/4 baht), 2560 BE (2017 AD)


Rama IX of Thailand (his actual name is too hard to spell) was born in December 1927.
He ascended to the throne on June 6, 1946, at age 18, and died at age 88, on October 13, 2016, after a reign of 70 years and 4 months.

(This makes him the only known monarch so far to have reigned for 70 years without having started "reigning" as a child.
This also means that his entire reign happened between the two most recent World Series appearances of the Chicago Cubs.)

You might have noticed that this coin is dated 2017. (This is, after all, why it is being posted today.)
This means that it was made when Rama IX had already died. It's a posthumous issue.

...Several more coin types were issued in the name of Rama IX in 2560/2017, but aside from those, I am not aware of any other posthumously issued coins of the 21st or 20th century.
(There are of course many cases when coins in the name of a monarch continued to be made for the rest of the year of their death - but not, as far as I'm aware, for the year after their death or later.)
