Civic copper with peacock facing left - doubtful mint
« on: April 28, 2018, 06:11:33 PM »
Similar to the other coin.
A little smaller and lighter than the other one. So I believe a later issue.
Size: 15mm
Weight: 3.84gr

Quite a nice coin, actually. The naive elegance of the peacock is both endearing and reassuring - beauty, not power. It would be too bad if the mint could not be read.

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

The mint is not present on these coins as Vic explained here: http://www.worldofcoins.eu/forum/index.php/topic,42527.0.html
