Quote from: coffeetime on February 03, 2012, 12:16:41 AMThis is a coin commemorating the Argentinian author Jorge Luis Borges. I do not have a high opinion of that genre (Borges, Beckett, Pinter, etc.); I am simply interested in the maze that appears on the reverse. Presumably it figures in one of his fables. You often see a maze in the garden of a palace, but I think this is the only maze on a coin. Can anybody prove me wrong?
