Easter Egg Toned Coins

Coins | Numinerd9

I just wanted to share some pretty coins with "Easter egg" style toning - a few 1944 steels! The US Mint made 2 franc coins for Belgium on leftover 1943 steel cent planchets. This is about as close as any of us can ever come to owning a "44 steel. Enjoy and have a Happy Easter, to those who celebrate the holiday! (Wanted to show them from a few different angles; tough sometimes for me with the iPhone camera to do nice toning like this justice; still very nice colors, imho.)


The toning is straight from a rainbow, lovely addition to the already interesting coins.

I recently picked up one of these. It seems they are usually found in high grade. I wonder it they didn't circulate much.

Nice coins, pics came out good, showing them off. I always liked this particular coin. I found a bunch in a dealer's box years ago.

Mike Burn has a blog about the U.S. Mint in San Francisco striking coins for the Philippines you would likely enjoy.
