    Texas by far does have the most striking commemorative. Lovely piece!

    Less than 25 collectable of this coin, the first collectible A.D. dated coin.
    Different vestments and the positioning of the orb in Charlemagne's
    hand. The date is 1374, in Roman numerals. I just thought this thread
    needed a Medieval posting.

    I have a few more special ones:
    Monitor F241  336 e  obv.jpg Monitor F241  336 e  rev.jpg 1876 type 2 2 obv.jpg 1876 type 2 2 rev.jpg Pan-Pac 1915 s  obv.jpg Pan-Pac 1915 s  rev.jpg vermont obv.jpg vermont rev.jpg beasties token obv.jpg beasties token rev.jpg
    the monitor token in white metal is rare.
    there are very few 1876 P type 2/2 trade dollars, maybe a couple of dozen?
    I love the toning on the 2 commems.
    the Conder just makes me smile.

    I love that classic Texas commemorative half design ... even to the irony of the angel "protecting" the Alamo where a couple of hundred Texan defenders (Texians) died and around 600 Mexican attackers.

    I like them especially with beautiful toning!

    Kind regards,

    A trio of Early Dated Gold
    1436-i28a-2.jpg 1436-i28b.jpg 1436-i30.jpg
    The first and third pieces are relatively common, the first fewer than 11 collectable
    pieces, the third less than 21 collectable pieces. The second piece has less than 4
    collectable pieces. The first and second are different with the orientation of the
    trefoil. The rare piece is one of my favorites. These gold guldens with the date 1436
    in Roman numerals are the first Anno Domini dated gold coins.

    I'm posting another coin largely to bring this post back to the front page in the hopes that more coins are posted.

    In the meanwhile, this is an MS67.

    Tell us how you have come to enjoy her company. I think a Sheldon number would be nice. She has a way of keeping your attention .

    I barely know her. We have just been introduced!.... Couldn’t tell you the Sheldon number. She is 1794 with head of 1794 and lettered edge. When I am done staring, I’ll do some more research.

    @markr Those warm tones are great and they don't hide the cartwheel luster

    Most of these coins are not necessarily my most expensive, none are the rarest coin in my collection....but they are the ones I love the most at the moment and wouldn't sell under any circumstances.

    Alexander III Tetradrachm (1).jpg
    This Babylonian Tet was my first ancient coin. So it means a lot to me.

    Julius Caesar (1) (1).jpg
    This lifetime Denarius of Julius Caesar is in fact my most expensive coin, but that's not why I love it so much. It is a prized coin because of my love for the history of this time period and Caesar's crucial role in dismantling the Republic.

    Istros Drachm (1) (1).jpg
    One look at this Istros drachm should be enough to tell you why I love it so much.

    Attica Athena Owl Tet.jpg
    Everyone needs an Athenian Owl....enough said.

    89781q00 (1).jpg
    Zeno was the last Eastern Roman Emperor to rule with a co-emperor in the west.

    The toning on this Marc Anthony Denarius and the strong details make this one special coin for me.

    That's about it. Any other coin in my collection may be sold or traded at any time to upgrade to something else, or if I ever have an emergency...but these coins are protected from that for the foreseeable future as far as I'm concerned.
