    Serious eye-candy in this thread. This Civil War Token has a little eye-appeal. 4CB8F5EF-D34A-4E16-81B9-42E8CCEFBDAD.jpeg 34025CC3-7B1C-4DD6-87D6-FB93EEAA05CC.jpeg

    Very difficult to chose THE most beautiful, but among the US coins in my collection this one ranks very high:

    Either this 1917 French 10 Francs. It has a beautiful portrait and a really nice scene on the back with a seated liberty.

    Second up is this Baker Island 1 Dollar coin with very nice birds front and back.

    This is my current one, the 1960 Crown. Ask me again tomorrow as my opinion will probably change.

    physics-fan3.14 You got any more of them.... prooflikes?

    Today's category will be "Most beautiful US Prooflike". I've selected this shield nickel, although there are a few contenders:

    Though it's not technically a coin, this is the one that immediately came to mind when I saw the question. 1910 shooting medal from Bern, Switzerland. 1910 bern shooting medal.jpg

    As far as pure aesthetics go, for me it's always a tossup between the Mexican Caballito and the Japanese Meiji Dragons.

    Lots of nice stuff and while I think there are plenty of choices, for me this is number 1 in my collection.
