Brit-Asia: My personal collection of Hong Kong coins

Coins-World | CoinsInHK

Hello fellow numismatists!
In my last blog post, I talked about the history of Hong Kong's coins. Today I would like to share some of the older coins from my personal collection with you. Most of the coins have a young Queen Elizabeth II on them, but one has King George V portrayed on the reverse. I've also placed the coins next to some modern coinage so you can see the differences clearer. Other than that, "That's all, folks!"

Hong Kong has a long history of wonderful coinage. You should be very proud of your collection.

Coinage from that era and location is fascinating. From the ending of the First Opium War to now, Hong Kong has and continues to be a hotbed of political and economic turmoil. During that time some beautiful coins have emerged. Nice Collection.

Nice collection. I always find it interesting all the different areas of collecting there are, and how people got started in that area. I haven't gotten into foreign coins so much., but want to look at them at next coin show.
