I got recently 2 fairy tale-coins. Especially denmark dedicated a series of coins to the tales of Andersen. I only have the Ugly Duckling.

Nice coins and a subject I like.  Would you draw a distinction between Fairy Tales and Folk Tales? What about Legends? Mythology?
Fantasy?

In some cases one's mythology can be another's religion...

That's the problem I'm having:

Myths, folktales, and associated beasts

How to dice and slice these subjects. There are ancient myths, but folk tales / fairy tales are much the same and more recent. East Asian folk tales are rather different from European ones. The Kazakhstan folk beasts seem closer to the European tradition than to the Indian, or Thai, or Chinese.

The Perth Mint is one of the largest producer of pseudo coins in the world.. ::)

The French sent Klaus Barbie to prison for making that doll. I don't blame them - it's a crime against humanity.

Then again, Rossini's "Barbie of Seville" was an enormous success ... Well, of course that Perth Mint piece is real, but it was not made for circulation.
