Running out of original options for Victoria! Here is a rather tatty medallion from her Wedding:
How about we move on to Female Rulers other than Queen Victoria or Queen Elizabeth II? That should give scope for some new options.
For Example, this one of Queen Anne - a Crown from 1713:
Or this, which is a Groat from Mary I of England - daughter of Henry VIII and known as "Bloody Mary" for martyrdom of protestants as she tried to take the Country back to Catholicism.
Thank you for posting this token. I was told mine was an engraver token, like a store card type of thing. I will have to do some research, beyond what I have done.
Note the "Deep Hair Lines", which all the 1933 2 1/2 guldens have. The 1932 and 1938 with the "Grof Haar" are much more rare and valuable. Fakes abound.
In the UK they are usually called "Toy Money". Made by Lauer and sold to help educate small children on money. (Bearing in mind the weird system we had back then, it took some educating!)
Gaming Tokens are usually bigger - around the size of a Quarter in American speak - and often brass or gold coloured.
I am gonna have to do some more research myself, I don't have much from Queen Victoria. Is that the new theme? "Queens"
Female rulers. Here is Faustina, Roman Empress, wife of Marcus Aurelius
Queen Jadwiga of Poland
continue same theme
Charlotte, Grand Duchess of Luxembourg.
Four different female monarchs on the reverse
I think this Severna should fit, venus reverse.
Queen Beatrix on the obverse, William and Mary of Britain on the reverse
A couple more Queens:
Elizabeth I of England on a Shilling
Queen Isabel of Spain
Eliazbeth II, D.G.
Last of the British Queens I have - Mary II conjoined bust with her husband William III.
The only other "ruling" Queen would be Queen Jane, but as she only managed 9 days before being deposed by Mary I she did not have time to mint any coins. Matilda claimed the throne in the mid 12th century against her cousin Stephen, but never got of it. There are coins from Matilda but they are very scarce and I have none!
