Not comfortable with the mint either...

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

Thank you for the mint, Saro.
Peter, I must admit that I have problems to recognize a pomegranate there.

Added a visual aid. Was going to do it yesterday, but grandchildren interfered. :) Maybe now something can be said about the rest of the design?
