So, you are suggesting your own country's coins are boring? I hope you don't end up in prison.  ;D

 ??? There is actually more variation on these series than on the UK coins. Or has the title of the thread become incorrect?

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

Wrong. On the UK coins, the Shield of the Royal Arms has been broken up into a jigsaw. Therefore, the reverse of each coin is entirely different when you look at it. I don't like this theme, however. I see your point but I reject it, because it's wrong, as regards this topic title.  :P

Not quite. On the Benelux coins, three different heads are used, on UK coins there is only one. You didn't show the other side.

I recently purchased three former Soviet Union sets and I found all of their former coinage was similar in style on both all the obverses and reverses.

Central African States set, 2006.


The Central African States and West African States tend to use similar obverse and reverse designs for each coin.

Costa Rica set.jpg

Costa Rica.

Same coat of arms on the obverse, denomination on the reverse.

Apart from the different number of dots on the reverse (are they braille?), the coins are all very similar.
