P.K. Saha forwards a river of information each week on new coin issues. Here are a few that caught my eye.
Austria 25 Euro Bimetallic, To Be Issued In 2013
I really like this one. Is that a tunnel-boring machine on the reverse? You don't see THAT on a coin every day. I think the design really works - it's a natural for the round bimetallic format.
Latvia 1 Lats Coin For Sculptor Karlis Zale
It's a very plain style, but I imaging it mimics the style of the sculptor it honors. I kinda like it, particularly the reverse (the side on the right - I think that's the reverse...)
Italy 10 Euro on Michelangelo reverse
It's hard for any artist to top Michelangelo, but I think this one really does Michelangelo justice. Nice, clean design.
Italy 5 Euro coin on 150 years of Lira
I like the use of a classic design (plus I always give extra points to art picturing naked ladies...)
