SOME RECENT COIN DESIGNS: SEPTEMBER 20, 2015

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 this week. -Editor

Vatican City 5 Euro

Vatican City 5 Euro obverse Vatican City 5 Euro reverse

The Pope is showing up everywhere these days, so where better than on a new Vatican coin? -Editor

Netherlands 2 Euro Coin on the European Union Flag

Netherlands 2 Euro Coin

I guess one could appreciate the simplicity of the design, but the human figures are too abstract for my taste - these are little beyond stick figures. -Editor

Ukraine Coin on Kyiv-Mohyla Academy

Ukraine Coin on Kyiv-Mohyla Academy obverse Ukraine Coin on Kyiv-Mohyla Academy reverse

A more classic design. The three figures and building on the obverse are a little much for one coin, but it seems to work. I like it. -Editor

Ukraine Coin on Ivan Karpenko-Karyi

Interesting design incorporating puppetry and the theatre. Unusual theme - I don't recall ever seeing a coin featuring puppets. Could anyone send us images of coins or medals with that theme for next week's issue? -Editor
Here are some designs I came across elsewhere. -Editor

2015 Austrian Euro Coins
