    This thread is for everyone. I posted it here but of course the USA is part of the world.
    I have a liking for gold pieces that are a little different from the usual sovereigns, eagles etc. I will start it off with an Austrian 1892 dual denomination 8 Florin/20 Francs

    What's unusual about this,the denomination,some people wouldn't think we had $2.50 gold coins and others 100+ years ago as money. 20210512_180730.jpg 20210502_082733.jpg

    Here are a couple of different Uncirculated Jane Pierce First Spouse coins I ordered from the Mint on the first day of release. They both have identical "raised" marks across the fields. I would think that dies are very hard and indestructible, but I've read where a simple wipe of a cloth can cause such damage. I was going to send these coins back, but kept them instead...because I liked the example and surprised they slipped past the Mint's quality control folks.
