World numismatics records worth mentioning?
« on: March 30, 2013, 01:06:32 PM »
I've been interested in numismatics, mints that have some bragging rights for instance world's largest gold coin, world's first platinum circulating coin, world's first bi-metal, tri-metal etc.

Here's some of my thoughts:

World's largest gold coin record trend: http://lunaticg.blogspot.com.au/2011/11/worlds-biggest-gold-coin.html

World's first platinum coin was officially struck for circulation - Russia 1828 3 ruble

World's first tantalum (bimetal + silver) coin - Kazakhstan 2006 500 tenge

World's first antimony coin - China 1931 Kweichow 10 cash

World's first palladium coin - Sierra Leone 1966, set of 3 coins

World's first titanium coin - Gibraltar 1999 5 pounds

And so on. List can also be the world's most expensive coin of it's catagory. Would like to see interesting records.
