    Do we have a thread for this already? I couldn't find one.

    Here's my example for today: Cook Islands $2, 2015

    I think that's dodecagonal. If I remember my wasted youth playing D&D, dodecahedral would be this guy: Dodecahedron.jpg

    I got these as a gift, along with the rest of the proofs for that year. Images from online, but that's probably better because I can't take very good pictures.....:artist:

    I usually take my photos with the coin on top of a coin box. I needed three for this one. Sweden 1 daler 1746:

    Did you know that one of the sakura flowers along the border will always be inverted? It's location would then show where and when it was minted (I think).
