An Often neglected coin...but IMHO a very elegant design for a standard circulation coin in India

Here, our member Quant.Geek shows a coin ca. 100 AD with a map of the area around the town of Thirukkovilur (lower centre) on the river Pennaiyar (upper centre to lower right, Google maps' spelling of the names) with three mountains in the background (upper right corner). I guess this solves the question of which is the oldest coin with a map...

An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.

Taiwan, 1 yuan, 1956.




This is one of many pattern coins of Taiwan showing a map of the island. They are too late to be listed in the Kann catalog of Chinese coins, but a supplement to the Kann catalog, listing many Taiwan coins and patterns, was published by Kann and Graham in The Numismatist in the late 1950's. The two part article was later reprinted as a monograph. I believe the title is Coinage of the Chinese Emigree Government.
