2000 Ireland 1 "Punt" Coin

Coins-World | AC coin$

Irish One Punt (Pound) Coin

The Irish harp, the gaelic sound, a Northern instrument tied to the land of Norse ancestors, is shown on the coin's obverse.

Along with the traditional Celtic harp, the Irish red deer is represented as well on the coin's reverse. Beautifully designen and minted in a large format the Irish Punt coin or Irish Pound was used until 2002 when the country fully adopted the Euro.

Collectors try to find the other "milenium" version of this type of coin too. Both designs are sought among numismatics de to its designs and sturdy mint variations.

In my own words.

The first Harp appeared in Egypt 2500 B.C. The Irish Harp appeared 800 A.D.. it also is the The instrument of the country on all coins and flags. Research is important . I believe that's a stag not a deer.

Thanks for that piece of information. Actually, there's evidence of harp-like instruments used by the Assyrians and Sumerians in Mesopotamia. What I brought is specifically tied to Irish culture. I do so in a short attractive fashion. It is good to know one's history but I rather enjoy my style, though I majored in Humanities, Art History and Archaeological studies.
