i enjoy looking at and keeping coins from other countries or unusual ones from our own. i even have a coin collection. true, most of them were collected by my dad and i’ve never been as avid a collector as he, but one of the best presents i got from a high school boyfriend was 3 steel pennies (i didn’t include them in the “here, take back the shit you gave me” package after he called me a pagan who was going to hell). i also enjoy the fact that my pre-euro coins from several countries are cheerfully appreciating inside my coin book.

 

but nothing has excited me like these. not just as a coin collector, but as an artist, this british coin design makes my toes warm. they’re lovely and asymmetrical apart and go together beautifully to create the shield of the royal arms. i hope in the future more countries take a similarly creative approach.

 

p.s. please don’t talk to me about the potential cruel abandonment of the penny in america. it makes me sad.
