**Delicate Miniatures**

Exonumia | Kepi

Hi Everyone, I found these crazy miniature U.S. coins today while poking around in the ol' coin vault... What else is there to do on a cold Sunday afternoon... Right??? Anyhow, from what I gathered is that were sold as a set and used as a novelty item to "emphasize" the inflation problem in America during the late 1970's through the early 1980's. So here we are again some 40 odd years later and these are right back in style! Inflation surrounds us...Shrinking our U.S. dollar... My set includes an Indian Cent, Buffalo Nickel, Mercury Dime, Washington Quarter, Walking Liberty and a Eisenhower Dollar. The Shield Cent is just for size comparison. Aren't they tiny! So appropriate to describe our monies value of today... haha Hope you enjoyed just reading a silly blog. Comments are always welcomed!

**Lion on the Mountain**

Coins - World | Kepi

Hi everyone! I wanted to share the newest addition to my collection! This is a 2014 $5 Fine Silver Coin from the Bank Note Series: Lion on the Mountain. It is 99.99% pure silver with a diameter of 36 millimeters and a weight of 23.17 grams. The reverse image recreates the vignette of a lion on a mountain from a design of the early twentieth century by the British American Banknote Company. The obverse shows Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth ll designed by Susanna Blunt. This coin was struck by the Royal Canadian Mint and has a limit of 8500. (Mine is #4355)... ; ) As some of you might know the lion theme is one of my favorites and fills quite a few spaces in my coin boxes! haha I would love to find one of original bank notes depicting my Lion on the Mountain coin! Keep searching right! Thanks for reading my blog. Comments are always welcome. Sources: Coin World 2014
