Coins with the same person or theme on both sides
« on: February 18, 2010, 08:19:29 PM »
How many coins can you think of with the same person/thing on both sides? There are a few U.S. coins that fit the bill, such as the Lafayette dollar, the Lincoln Memorial cent and the New Jersey quarter, and I can think of a few European coins with eagles on both sides. Any thoughts?

Yes, the good Mr. Lincoln figures on more coin dies than any other person except Ms. Liberty. Depends also on how you define "thing". I can think of a few coins with the value on both sides.

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

Five years ago the Royal Dutch Mint issued a coin to Queen Beatrix's silver jubilee. (She became queen in 1980, and the Jubileummunt came out in 2005.) The coin shows the very same moment - the oath - from two different angles.

I remember only two coins: Bulgaria 1 lev 1981 (the coat of arms at both sides) and USSR 1 rouble 1987 (the same sickle and hammer at both sides).
