The British Antarctic Territory commemoration for the 200th anniversary of the discovery of Antarctica is a prime example of the unnecessary use of denticles, apart from the fact that Pobjoy Mint did not apply due diligence in their research of the Williams and depicted the wrong vessel.

Cuba, 1 peso, 1992.  The coin has an inner polygonal rim but with a bead circle.  Sorry, communist Cuba, but that is just degenerate.  :o

Nepal, 25 Paisa, VS2057, 2000.

I recently asked myself whether any aluminium coins had bead circles. I thought that it would be unlikely.

I was wrong. Nepal has several such coins.

The Deutsches Reich had a few too. For example, the 3 Mark 1922, or the 50 Reichspfennig 1935 and 1939.

Another one to keep in mind that I came across this morning whilst perusing eBay - the aluminium Spanish 1 peseta coin of 1982-1989.  :)

Italy, 20 lire, 1927.



This coin has beads on the rim of the coin.

Usually they appear next to the rim.
