An Alphabet of Heptagons: Seven-sided Coins
« on: May 24, 2011, 02:49:58 AM »
By heptagons, I mean seven-sided coins. OK, it won't be a full alphabet - it will have a few gaps, and I may have to cheat in some cases. When I've finished the alphabet, I'll open up the topic to comments.

The first heptagonal coin was created by the Royal Mint (UK). It was a British 50 pence coin, first issued in 1969.

In this topic, I will give priority to circulation coins, because some countries (Gibraltar, the Isle of Man) have produced dozens of different heptagonal issues. However, if the only heptagonal coins a country has issued are commemoratives, then I will include them.

Because I can't find an "A", I will cheat and start with two trial 50 cents coins from Australia that were never issued.
