Circulation sets with a common obverse and a common reverse
« on: February 25, 2015, 05:12:33 PM »
Such sets may appear quite boring, in terms of design. I imagine they are quite common and were probably even more common in the twentieth century. But is my view correct? Let's find out.





The first Jersey decimal set, issued in full in 1971, had a common obverse of the Queen.





The common reverse showed the Jersey coat of arms.

Qatar and Dubai, 1966.  The common obverse included the denomination.





The common reverse showed an Arab dune gazelle.

Oman, 100 baisa, 1984.

Generally speaking, Bahrain's modern standard coinage shows the state emblem on one side and the denomination on the other.

Malaysia's first set, 1967 to 1989, was almost uniform. Notice how the star and crescent on the ringgit are different from on all the other coins. Not quite good enough, though, to escape this topic.

Indian coinage has had similar designs for the series. The variations is achieved by shaped of the coin.

So, you are suggesting your own country's coins are boring? I hope you don't end up in prison.  ;D
