New Zealand, 1 dollar, 1970.

Mount Aorangi, also known as Mount Cook.


Mountains attract clouds. A cloud lasts for minutes or hours.

Perhaps coin designs do not usually include clouds because they are ephemeral.

Meanwhile, mountains have a potential lifetime of millions of years.

Thailand 100 baht 1975.jpg

Thailand, 100 baht, 1975.  100th Anniversary of the Ministry of Finance.


Another Thai coin with clouds on it. Why are there so many clouds in Thailand?  :o


I've googled this Ministry of Finance building but can't find it.

It looks more like the Thai Ministry of Defence building.
