My Son has Passed a Major Milestone on his Way to Becoming a Doctor: in recognition - VICTORIA

    My family and I have been holding our breath for the last 3 days while my eldest son sat for a major examination at his University School of Medicine.

    This examination, lasting 3 full days is taken after 5+ years of study in medicine, and is the last major prerequisite toward full state certification at the end of the 6th/7th year.

    We saw how hard he worked to prepare himself - the journey was on occasion quite difficult and the stress level at the end enormous - but he has succeeded, and we are enormously happy for him.

    In his honor I am posting these coins depicting VICTORIA.
    He really deserves it.

    To you, my son:

    Sestertius of Galba - Victoria advancing holding palm and wreath:
    Galba Sestertius Victoria-Obv - 1_opt.jpg Galba Sestertius Victoria-Rev - 1_opt.jpg

    As of Trajan - The emperor being crowned by Victoria:
    trajan as victoria obv1 N - 1.jpg trajan as victoria rev1 N - 1.jpg

    And, since he likes coins too (my influence, I guess), I am gifting him this United States Large Cent struck in the year 1794 - 200 years before we was born in 1994:

    1794 cent s-72 obv5 n good one - 1.jpg 1794 cent s-72 rev3 n good one - 1.jpg

    Please post your coin of Victoria.
