Numismatic heritage: circulation designs that have been reused
« on: January 23, 2012, 12:11:15 AM »
In 2011 Uruguay issued a circulation 10 peso coin that copied the design of a puma from the 1942 1 peso coin.

When Ireland transitioned to a decimal currency between 1969 and 1971, it transferred the salmon design from the two shillings to the ten pence coin, which was the exact equivalent in value.

The horse on Ireland's half crown was revived on the 20 pence coin.

And the woodcock from the old Irish demonetised farthing was resurrected on the highest denomination of the day from 1970 onwards.

Guernsey transferred the cow on its predecimal threepence to the decimal ten pence, and the Guernsey lily on its four doubles moved to the decimal five pence coin.

In 2010 Gibraltar issued a penny with a Barbary partridge on the reverse design. This design was an amended version of the original penny design of 1988, except that the vegetation around the rim had been removed. The font used on the two designs is also different.







Compare the 2010 design with the original 1988 version.

In the case of Slovenia, it may be wrong to refer to old designs. :) Anyway, here is the "old" 20 tolarjev coin (image: worldcoingallery.com) and below is the "new" 1 cent coin (image: europa.eu).

While SLT 20 = 0.08, a significant discrepancy in values. I guess the different colours helped.

And Fiji has just "done an Ireland" by resurrecting the design of its smallest denomination (1c) on its newly introduced highest denomination ($2).  Cue an obscure quiz question that will probably get me thrown out of our next meeting: "Where are 200 tanoas worth one tanoa?"

I also see in the latest Australasian Coin and Banknote magazine that our big neighbour to the west is producing a new series of Coin-Like Objects with designs replicating the "holey dollar" and "dump" of 1813, to mark the bicentenary of those issues.

South Korea haven't change their coin design since the 1950s, and each new series is just a remake of the old ones.



1 Won(old 10 Hwan) always the Rose of Sharon
5 Won(old 50 Hwan) always the Turtle ship
10 Won always the pagoda of Dobotap
50 Won always riceplant
10 Won always Admiral Yi

Mozambique, 10,000 meticais, 2003.





Mozambique, 1 centavo, 2006.

Another example of background / no background on an animal design.  Michael Guilfoyle was responsible for both designs. This is also an example of a design moving from the highest denomination to the lowest.

South Africa, 2 cents, 1966.





South Africa, 5 rand, 1998.  Wildebeest.





South Africa, 5 rand, 2008.  Wildebeest.



One beast with background scenery that I forgot is the South African wildebeest. Notice that the mountainous background on the 5 rand designs is somewhat amended, compared to the original design on the 2 cents coin.
