Quote from: chrisild on September 07, 2013, 11:28:22 AMif a mint wants to sell collector coins, it will aim at a unified or harmonized appearance, so that collectors will want the entire series. That does not apply to circulation coins.
Quote from: chrisild on September 07, 2013, 11:28:22 AMYes, if an entirely new series is designed and the issued, you want to have a "family" of pieces. But it is not necessary, in my opinion always to create six, seven, eight new designs when one is to be renewed or replaced. If some low denomination is phased out and a new high denomination coin is introduced, does that new piece have to look like the others which may have been designed 50 years earlier? Not really. Does it mean all the others need to be trashed? Not really.
