So, today being Sunday I logged on expecting a fairly calm day on the blog pages. To my surprise we have music and all kinds of crazy colors and boarders and a host of other bothersome and potentially dangerous new looks and features. To my even bigger surprise there are two blogs by some, I believe, young numismatist that has, for all intents, crashed our site. Not only that, this genius blogs about taking the credit for it and details what he has done.

**Una and the Lion**

Coins-World | Kepi

This is my newest addition to my collection! This coin celebrates the 200th year anniversary of the birth of Queen Victoria born on May 24th 1819 in Kensington Palace in London. She was Queen of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland from June 20th 1837 until her death on Jan. 22nd 1901. The reverse design was created by 19th-century numismatic sculptor William Wyon and is a rendition of the famous Edmund Spenser's poem "Faerie Queene". It tells the story of Una and the Lion which follows Princess Una after St. George had slayed the dragon and rescued her. The words "DIEU ET MON DROIT" meaning "God on my Right", the motto of the British Monarch along with the year -MMXIX- are featured. The obverse of this coin is a portrait of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth ll, who is the great, great granddaughter of Queen Victoria. I think that's pretty cool! I really love this design as I think of my dog ( a giant Golden and Great Dane mix ) and myself, standing together facing all who try to enter our Kingdom... Thanks for reading my blog! All comments are welcomed! ; )

**Now That's A Pile of Change!**

Coins | Kepi

It's that time of year again! My change jar is full... I've been putting all the change I get for a whole year in this jar and believe me it won't hold anymore. This is an exciting time for me as I have no idea whats in there. I just "throw" it in... haha Well gently, just in case there's a "better" coin in there. ; ) Ya never know! It will take me awhile to sort through this pile, but as soon as I do I'll let you know what I found and how much $$$ was saved! Hope you enjoyed my collection! Feel free to comment as always!
