Thanks! But I hope I haven't misled. There is only one florin, just different camera angles!

I thought they were two coins, no problem. Amazing what a little change in lighting and angles can do. Still very nice.

Well I'm out of Florins I think, so since Irvin posed a 1954, here is another 1954, simple yet classy (love canadian coins)

Some very nice coins featured above guys. Very impressive.

Here is a 1984 New Zealand 1 cent coin from circulation struck at the Royal Canadian Mint in Winnipeg. A modified effigy of QE2 was used on the obverse for all circulation denominations of 1984 and 1985 New Zealand coinage. The effigy varies slightly to that on the coins in the Mint and Proof Sets which were struck at a different Mint.



Cheers
Wayne

I couldn't find any more six pence so here is a 1954 Canadian Five Cent with the Beaver Reverse.

Very nice Yarm. To follow on the theme of "lone figure" on the coin, I would like to present to you all the Australian 2005 90th Anniversary of Gallipoli dollar. These commemorative coins were not released into circulation and are part of the "mintmark" series of coins. Struck by the Royal Australian Mint in Aluminium Bronze the coins have C (Canberra), S (Sydney), B (Brisbane), M (Melbourne) and G (for Gallipoli though released at the Australian War Memorial in Canberra). There are two forms of each mintmark dollar - (1) coins struck on the main presses where the die incorporates the mintmark. These are released through the RAM, post offices and dealers, and (2) coins struck on the main presses without a mintmark and the mintmark is stamped on the coin by a portable press taken to Shows in each of the cities representing that mark. Mintages are very low compared to (1). Only one or two coins are known to have slipped through without the mintmark being stamped on. There is also a Pure Silver Proof coin without a mintmark.

Gallipoli is the location in Turkey where Australian and New Zealand troops stormed the beaches at ANZAC Cove on 25th April 1915 (92 years ago today) and suffered huge casualties due to a bungle up in where they were landed. The troops were ordered to advance wave after wave up the hills around the Cove to be mowed down by machinegun fire. Eventually after months of being pinned down, the remaining troops were withdrawn. ANZAC Day 25th April is one of the most sacrad days in Australia and New Zealand and honours all who have fallen in war.

Featured below is the B mintmark coin image from the RAM website.


This coin shows a planchet flaw. The coin was one I obtained from the portable press in Brisbane at the ANDA Show in May 2005.


This coin is a C mintmark found in circulation coins from a poker machine in Brisbane.

Brissyboy,

I must say you have some very interesting coins and the background/history that you provide is great.

Thanks,

Rey
