Quote from: Figleaf on March 26, 2008, 01:03:16 AMKAI is half a mystery. It appeared frequently in Belfast graffiti but isn't known for murder and mayhem. It was a Belfast protestant youth gang. The name seems to mean nothing in particular. There are few words in English that start with K. Kai is a German first name, but that's a pretty unlikely explanation. They seem to have had pretty nice punches to work on coins...Peter

The counterstamp was done with a single punch, but the die cutter forgot the second dot. It's the oldest coin in the series, but it is more worn than the others. I'll probably never know.Peter
