Mishandled proof collector coin. It looks like this piece was kept in a coin cabinet, fish side up and portrait side resting on a circular piece of paper that affected the metal.

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

Singapore, 20 cents, 1979.  Swordfish.  Xiphias gladius.

It looks as though the artist put the fish inside a washing-machine before he drew it.
