That looks like a reference collection now. I included it in the list of useful links. Looking good there...

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

Many thanks Peter ;D  I feel very honoured.  8)
I shall continue to work on it....... Still some coming from the USA......
Unfortunately, the distributors and token makers haven't been very helpful.
Still researching the history, one thing's for sure though Wikipedia is wrong.  No surprises there ::)

I've put some more on!  Now 42 listed. And I've started to scan them, probs with the alignment...... :-[
I'm getting a bit worried about myself as I've been staring at them all morning.  But, I think I may have found another subtle difference unfortunately I don't know the techy name for it  ::)  What are the lines coming in from the coin rim called?  And how does one go about counting them ;D

Another batch arriving soon I hope...............

I'd just call the edge decoration. To count them, if your eyesight is bad, splash over computer screen and use mouse pointer. If your eyesight is good, determine an angle of 90° from the centre of the coin, count number of lines in between (not the one that is exactly at 90° with the first one) and multiply by four.
