A dignified coin. It has done its job, served the people as money. It got some bruises doing its work, but it is easy to imagine what it looked like when it was just struck. This is not a race horse but a workhorse, a proud one that can claim a job well done.

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