Hi
I think this may be a topic on this board. Bangladesh has a few coins on bridge. Bangabandhu bridge is the largest bridge in bangladesh made of concrete. On the occassion of inauguration of the bridge Bangladesh Bank issued two commemorative coins, one made of silver and another made of nickel. Other than this Bangladesh has 5 taka coin in circulation depicting the bridge.

I think bridges are excellent and underused subjects for coins. I can immediately think of some on euro banknotes, but they are non-existant - the French think otherwise, but that is another story.

A coin with a bridge that immediately pops into my mind:



is the subject of this thread. There are three more bridges on coins inn this series.

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

That's Tsing Ma bridge, connecting Lan Tau island with the mainland. The connection was a dramatic change for Lan Tau. Its isolation made it a nest of pirates, smugglers, criminals and fugitives for centuries, but also a hotbed of resistance against the Japanese occupation. Lately, it catered to sailors with whorehouses, sleazy watering holes, gambling and opium dens. Today, it is home to Disneyland Hong Kong. ;)

Bridges from Czechoslovakia and the Czech Republic. Are they all the same bridge, I wonder?
