1000_shillings_1999_uganda3.jpg

I have seen images of "coins within coins", and so far they have been gimmicks: collector coins only.

Here we have a German euro, supposedly embedded in this Ugandan 1999 1000 shillings collector coin.

Verdict on the euro: not authentic.

Australia oddity.jpg


This Australian oddity is a one dollar collector coin of 2004. It celebrates the 40th anniversary of the last Australian penny. It has a diameter of 50mm, so I wonder if that is a REAL penny embedded in the dollar? What would you spend it on? Which items do you know of that cost a dollar and penny in Australia?

In a sense, all bi-metallic and tri-metallic coins are a "coin-in-a-coin": a pill in a ring. Here is an early British example of a token with pill and ring. The colours are a bit off...

An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.

Not a coin, but a medal issued by Hyderabad Mint, showing coins issued by Hyderabad Mint on it.
