Strictly speaking, what we have seen in this topic are different technologies. When the first latent images were used, they would show two views. The Dutch "geboortemunt" (2004) had three different angles; the Dutch Mint called that MultiView Minting. And the Luxembourgish coin in reply #4 uses what the KNM calls Minted Photo Image ...Christian
Quote from: izotz on February 12, 2012, 11:53:04 PMI mentioned that I attended the FNMT speech in WMF Media Forum. In NumismaticaVisual's Spanish blog they uploaded the video about this coin. You can see the quadruple latent image in minute 2:30 and 3:30. Unfortunately, the video is in English. http://jeroja6.wordpress.com/2012/02/10/espana-video-presentacion-programa-numismatico-wmf-2012/
Quote from: chrisild on February 14, 2012, 12:11:26 AMThanks for that, I just watched the video. Oh, and I noticed that the same YouTube user posted a few more Media Forum videos! http://www.youtube.com/user/vicepresidentADE?feature=watchWhat I don't quite understand is ... the man who presents the program talks about this unique feature - but when the Dutch mint made its Muntgebouw coin last year, the designer Juanjo Sanchez (yet another guy from Spain talking in English ) mentioned how much time it had taken him to develop this six-"sided" latent image:(interview) http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=CCpwehEL6BE#t=164s(here he shows the image) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g_zhX3b9qMISo what I think is new about this coin is not so much the fact that a latent image can show more than two "elements". This one is special in that the four latent images always show four different elements, which is probably not that easy to achieve ...Christian

Quote from: Vivek on January 22, 2013, 04:34:44 PMThe latent images of two Chinese phrases, "the country is prosperous and at peace" and "the people live in safety and happiness", overlap to form the shape of a Ruyi. The face value 10 Yuan in Chinese is inscribed with two latent images inside the Arabic numeral "0", one of which shows the map of Taiwan.See: http://worldcoinnews.blogspot.de/2010/11/taiwan-10-yuan-2011-dr-sun-yat-sen_1495.htmlToday I received few coins and Notes from Taiwan..Vivek
