I like mountains.
I showed my collection of coins with mountains (these are two big albums).
For me, collecting these coins is a hobby. :)
But my collection of coins of the Himalayan countries has a more professional direction.

Passion is a great basis for a collection, but the research is what sets it apart. Bravo, Gusev!

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

Carlos III Naples and Sicily Piaster 120 Granos 1735.
It shows a River god with two mountains behind. I assume the volcano, right with the smoke emanating, is the Vesuvius. The mountain on the left is Monte Somma.
