China 1990 5 Yuan Luo Guanzhong, Author of Romance of Three Kingdoms
The background features the three rival emperors in the Three Kingdom period, who were, from left to right, Liu Bei(and his two sworn  brothers), Cao Cao, and Sun Quan.


The design reminds me of "three Kingdom" themed flashcards we used to get from snack packets, whose depiction of Three Kingdom characters were heavily influenced by Chinese doll books.

The designers should have used historical woodblock paintings or opera figures, which would have given the coins more historical significance.

2004 50 Euro Bicentenary of Napoleon's coronation


I thought Napoleon III would strike a coin with his uncles, but no one found.

Ferdinand and Isabella, king and queen of Castilla, 10 excelentes (1497) Segovia, Cayón 2961-2962. Forget about your next two cars if you want this coin.

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

Juana and her son Carlos on a coin for Aragon: 100 ducados 1528 Zaragoza, Cayón 3167. They hated each other. When her husband died, she became know as Juana la loca, mad Joan. It may have been an excuse to get her out of politics.

I like the way the two look at each other, on both the Castile and Aragon coins. If I happen to come across any of those in a €1 bin, I may buy one. ;D If not, well, I can always look at them here. Or maybe in Madrid next month!

He (1) Who's that girl over there?
She (1) My Fred is soooo handsome.

She (2) Bastard! God'll get you for that!
He (2) It was the judge who sent you to the funny farm, not me. Honest!

He (3): When can I let that fart fly?
She (3): I don't like the wallpaper.

Hehe, i just love how the weakest like to entitle themselves to such exaggerated greatness ! It also strikes me how much has changed....the ancient zorashtrian empire was as war loving as it was culturally vibrant....todays true Cyrus (by both blood and faith) is indeed still great , but only because he most likely has such a great personality, you just cannot not like him   ;D

It's all about image-building, but the Shah didn't have the slightest idea of what the people want. 

Cyrus' deeds and ruins still inspires pride in modern Iranians, and it seems to me he is sort of a "Everything to everyone“ type of figure: He was a type of grandeur the Pahlavi tried to imitate; His cylinder is the first Declaration of Human Right for the democratic activists; His empire remains a rallying point for the Islamic Republic at a time when Iran is strategically surrounded by hostile powers.

Luxembourg, 2 euro, 2015.  125 years of the Nassau-Weilburg dynasty.

You can see that the rulers start off with a very small head, but eventually power goes to their head, and they end up with a very big one. A nasty dynasty indeed. Sorry, only joking. In fact, the rulers all gathered together in one room for a group photo, and the law of perspective did the rest.

Tonga, 10 20 pa'anga, 1975.

This coin depicts the monarchs of Tonga. Clockwise from the top they are Taufa'ahau Tupou IV, Queen Salote Tupou III (1918-65), George Tupou II (1893-1918), and George Tupou I (1845-93).
