Based on dealers', mints' and central Banks' news mails, ultra-modern numismatist Pabitra Saha reports on the latest
coin designs. Here are some that caught my eye recently. -Editor
Poland Coin on the centenary of Warsaw Polytechnic
I really like the mathematical, modern design of this bimetallic Gold and silver coin -Editor
Austria Coin on Cosmology
And then there's this bimetallic Silver Niobium coin on Cosmology. The design elements are plain and simple, but too simple - it
feels childlike. The colors are interesting, but the effect is just bizarre. To me, this one's a train wreck. -Editor
Hungary 2000 Forint Coin on Istvan Homoki-Nagy
István Homoki-Nagy (Mezotúr, 2 September 1914 - Budapet, 14 December 1979) was a film director, cinematographer, ornithologist, lawyer, pioneering
figure in nature documentary, and a Kossuth Prize winning artist. To mark the 100th anniversary of his birthday, the National Bank of Hungary issued
a collector coin, designed by Andrea Horváth. The front of the rectangular coin shows the director at work, with a relief of the three animal
characters of his film "Buddies", Fickó (a Hungarian vizsla), Pletyka(a dachshund) and Nimród(a falcon) on the back.
I like the format and layout of this unusual rectangular piece. The "letterbox" orientation (like a movie screen) is
fitting for the subject matter. Plus, ya gotta like the dogs. -Editor
Bulgaria 10 leva Coin on Bulgarian Cinema
Here's another coin commemorating the movie business. It's different, and I like the film reel. -Editor
Finland 5 euro Coin on Satakunta Province
I generally like this design - it's simple and the elements fit together nicely. But man, that is one creepy-looking beaver.
