**Lucky Lotto Ticket?**

National Coin Week | Kepi

National Coin Week is a wonderful event for the Numismatic Community as well as all those potential folks that might find the goodies we have all "thrown" out there in circulation. One of the things I contributed is this Series 1935 E Silver Certificate One Dollar Bill. This was really exciting to me as I live in a smaller town and wondered where should I "spend" this little beauty? I decided on an old local mini-mart near my home. Now what to buy??? What could I purchase for a buck... perhaps a lucky lotto ticket!!! So I did. I passed my silver certificate right across the counter to the cashier who to my surprise finished the transaction without so much as a second look to my dollar! I'm thinking "Dude! What's the matter with you!" It's really wild how alot of people don't really look at our money. Now back to that lotto ticket... Lucky? We have yet to see! Hope you enjoyed my blog! Comments are always welcomed.

**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! ; )
