But some coins are plain on both sides and do not have any pictorial, heraldic or symbolic design.

Agreed, but that Malawi penny is not a German collector coin (that the statement referred to).  8)

The only others I've though of are from Bukhara,



(1319 on both sides (AH))

I remember that the suggestion was not well accomodated, with a lot of examples showing coins with dates on both sides.... of course I've forgotten which ones and I can't remember in which forum I aired the idea.


Hi Ole,
That was discussed on coins list of coins@uni.edu more than two decades back.
The Laos coin was discussed that time.
Lebanon has current coins with date on both sides ( not AD and AH but AD only)

Looking at numista, I found about ten double-dated coins from Lebanon.

In every case they have the AD year in Arabic numerals on one side and the AD year in Western numerals on the other side.

Our Western numerals are originally derived from Arabic numerals, of course.
