Sun Aug 20 22:30:03 2017



The Third Coin from the Sea Life of the reef Series II is a Starfish. Starfish, related closing to sea-urchin and are echinoderms. The are predator animals, often feeding on sea urchins, and they has a spiney skin, as the whole echioderms class does. They can regenerate limbs if lost and some species can even regenerate a body from a limb if it has enough food stores.



You can see any of the Types of Starfish of the very deep sea at the NOAA Website.

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.
