Quote from: FosseWay on May 22, 2011, 11:04:46 PMThe earliest examples of an intentionally polygonal coin in what is now the UK are the Civil War siege pieces.
Quote from: coffeetime on May 23, 2011, 03:30:27 PM...But what about polygonal coins - are they more expensive to produce than circular ones?...Is the production of a die for a polygonal coin any more difficult or expensive than for a circular coin?....
Quote from: coffeetime on May 23, 2011, 03:19:27 PMLet me pose the question now to our members: what is the EARLIEST use of a polygonal coin or token in YOUR country? Or in the countries whose coins most interest you, or in the countries that are part of your area of expertise?
Quote from: villa66 on May 25, 2011, 08:19:41 AMDie life must be an issue....I think I remember that during WWII and for some years after, the corners of the brass threepence were rounded somewhat so as to increase production.
Quote from: villa66 on May 25, 2011, 08:27:28 AMFor the Canadian coinage that begins in 1858, the earliest polygonal coin must be the 1942 tombac 5-cent piece.
