Thank you, nomadbird - glad you like it.  8)  I've had great fun doing it, but many other members have also either started topics, or participated in them, or both. It's great teamwork! It is hard to find new topics now, but members occasionally do. Dheer started an excellent topic on signatures, and there are many more intriguing subjects.

And nomadbird started three topics, I note. "Dictators on coins" is my favourite. "Nobel prize winners" is another.  And "UFOs on coins" - though I believe there aren't any on coins!

Closest I can think of is this from San Marino;

The official design is "something falling from the heavens" but then goes on about it being man-made :(
always willing to trade modern UK coins for modern coins from elsewhere....
