A set of coins that are in my wife's possession - other than the UK coinage she has no idea where (or from whom) the others have come from:

Brought back memories, the One Penny with the Hen and chicks is from the republic of Ireland from 1928 to 1968 the other side I believe has the Irish harp I remember using them as a child in the 1950's. pingin means penny. I have just read that if it is from 1940 it is very rare.

For $31,000 I almost crapped a canon5d but of course upon further investigation this is not a S uncirculated ergo approximate value about $25. Oh well.

These two are interesting in that the 1922 (peace) dollar only ran for a short period.

I know I am posting this a bit late for last week's challenge. It's a SOOC jpeg with no adjustments.
