In the "Post Your Coins with Stars" thread, jbuck posted a recent US coin acquisition that features Eisenhower. In response, I mentioned that it might be time for him to expand his Ike collection beyond US issues to include world coins
. He then commented that if I had a list of such coins, it "might make for a nice topic."
So, I've put together a trial list (it's not an active collecting area for me, so I didn't have an existing definitive list) and am hopeful that CCF members can either add to it and/or post pictures of the coins already on the list.
I'm not sure it's comprehensive, but here's a starting point list (at least) for your new collection (
) of World coins depicting Eisenhower (thanks to some searching in the Numista database!):
1970 United Arab Emirates, 10 Riyals (Silver), 1st Anniversary of Death
1990 Marshall Islands, $5 (CuNi) & $50 (Silver), Birth Centennial
1990 Niue, $5 (CuNi) & $200 (Gold) , Birth Centennial
1991 Tokelau, $5 (CuNi), Supreme Allied Commander
1994 France 100 Francs, 50th Anniversary of the Liberation of France (Silver)
1994 Gibraltar, 1 Crown (CuNi & Silver), Part of a World War II Series
1994 Isle of Man, 1 Crown (CuNi & Silver), 50th Anniversary of D-Day
1994 Turks & Caicos, 5 Crowns & 20 Crowns (CuNi & Silver), 50th Anniversary of D-Day
1998 Gibraltar, 1 Crown (CuNi), Part of World At War Series
2000 Liberia, $5 (CuNi), NCLT but no specific commemoration
2000 Liberia, $20 (Silver), US Presidents Series
2005 British Virgin Islands, $1 (CuNi), 60th Anniversary of VE Day
2011 Liberia . $20 (Silver-plated), Greatest Warlords Series
I don't have any of the above, but I wanted to kick things off with a visual. So, here's something other than a US coin...
Now, let's help jbuck visualize his next collection with some pictures! Whatcha got in your world coins
