Coin Collecting at the Safir House
We also have a 1915 example of this coin.
Our 1925 D Quarter Eagle - Photo's from Heritage
Originally I scanned coins on an HP Flatbed Scanner. But over time I've come to understand that modern digital cameras actually capture even more detail than a scanner, exposing even details not visible by the naked eye. These pictures are scans. The linked images are from a Sony Cybershot camera.
One thing that should be noted here is that these coins, despite the photographs, are very small and thin. They are 18 millimeters in diameter and weight about 4 grams. Compared to a Rooservelt Dime, the dime is 17.9 millimeters and 2.5 grams. And yet, with such a small coin, the detail of the engravings, in my opinion, are very impressive.

The Safir Family Internet Coins Library: Foriegn Coins.Several mints from around the world make exciting coin designs in circulating alloys, silver and gold. Among my favorites are the Perth Mint in Austrailia which produces a variety of coins for nations mostly through out the Pacific Rim. The Neatherlands has also produced some interesting designs, and several private US based mints have produced foreign currency on contract, include the Franklin Mint which has produced many Israeli Coins. Our interest in foreign coins has been nominal but rapidly growing as it seems that US designs are so stuck in the mud. Also, foreign mints are creating bold new designs with color and bimetal designs that are both eye catching and fun.
