World Coins of intricate design and/or historical background are a great interest of mine. A couple of years back when I started, I added these distinctive coins with appealing gilt motifs:

1). Australian Dollar - 130th anniversary of the Melbourne Mint.

2). Russian 3 Ruble - 150th anniversary of the First Russian Stamp.

3). Belarus 10 Ruble -  Candlemas Celebration.

No worries :)  If this is about your Koala, then you're fine....it's silver.  Same compositions certainly counts!

Nice coin Tom! This one just came back in a fresh NGC MS-63 holder. I was really hoping for a star, but I will take what I can get. I will update the picture with the label when I get a spare minute.

In an effort to keep this going...here is another one from my recent submission. It came back in a fresh NGC MS-61 holder (updated pictures to follow soon).

That is a very impressive and beautiful coin Star City Homer! It makes me miss my Japanese copper collection. From what I remember that series can be difficult to track down with decent eye appeal. 

To add to the thread I have included a picture of my 1806 proof restrike halfpenny. This was my first purchase from Heritage not too long ago.

Very nice coins to both Don and Homer!  Now, I have to dig through my collection to find something copper to post up of a type that hasn't been shared yet (I'm something of a silver guy).  It may take me a bit, but I'm looking...maybe my Canada box will reveal something good. I'm so glad to see this post active though.  Great coins guys!

>You can reply with a coin of the same composition, from the same country, of the same date (or date range with ancients), or with the same person on the coin.<

That's a lot of rules (ha ha).  I can't participate until we get to France or Gold  :)

Nothing wrong with moderns.....not gold, but still France!!  Sorry for the old photos though.....judging by the background, they were taken before 2014, when I moved to where I live now.  I don't have that desk anymore.

You nailed it bigmarty58! To follow up with the same country. This is one of my newer purchases. It’s 1641-43 Great Britain Halfcrown S-2779 in a PCGS VF-30 holder.
