That holder is quite interesting, @Commems. Did they produce those for other classic commemoratives?

I'm aware of one with the same format produced for the Oregon Trail Memorial half dollar, but not for other issues.

I once toyed with the idea of contracting with Capital to produce one for the Roanoke (I spoke with them and even wrote up the text for it!) but decided it would be an expensive endeavor with very little return and so didn't pursue it.

Nice start so far! I'm away from my photos but will start mine after work today. As a side note my first commemorate also was a stone mountain.

This Pine Tree Shilling ( PCGS VF-30) is one of my faves, although clearly my photography skills are not up to par:

Great coins everyone - Spence that shilling is the rosetta stone of all US coins!!

t360 - Love that ecu.

My other 9 coins are in no order either, but all will be thrillers and cover the mix of my collecting interests (So not 9 more Halfcrowns sorry).
Loving Halfcrowns. British and Commonwealth coins 1750 - 1950 and anything Kiwi.
If it's round, shiny and silvery I will love it.

My second coin, and like others have said, in no particular order, is the Australian shilling featuring the ram's head design. This has also been used a few times on later decimal coins.

I always loved the St Gaudens walking liberty and the capital. And while I don't have a classic the modern is also nice.

I've always liked this one for the crossover from button to coin, used as a halfpenny in colonial Lower Canada c.1830s

Housed in a ANACS old small white holder, it is a BREEN-3102. The crusty old toning is starting to grow on me.



The story with the overdate is that it is very rare as Walter Breen's wrote in his Complete Encyclopedia of U.S. and Colonial Coins, but more later studies suggest this is likely a result of defective numeral punch, with some searching one can find it not so difficult.

Coin number 2 from the Galleries Numismatiques du Princetane,




An Australian Crown from 1938, high AU. This was the 2nd year of a 2 year flop coin. These Morgan dollar sized coins never quite caught on with our Australian friends, making it a beautiful and an incredibly rare coin.

And who could not love owning a coin known for the number of fakes that exist?

What delight, shall I unearth next - stay tuned

Nice coin Princetane. I don't have one of those, only the 1937 version.
