Handsome coin, that!
When i find a coin from elsewhere in Europe particularly i am struck by how the designs of the time have so many similarities across borders.
The metal content and size of coins follows closely.....even when currency treaties are not in place. The style of 'head' follows too...especially noticeable with males of the mid Vicky to Edwardian era. The kings of Europe all sport the same neat beard and moustache and hair style. Quite apart from them all being related and having similar features anyway. :lol:
The style of font, where the date is, the general motifs on the reverse all follow a fahion.
Not just Europe....around the time of the Statue of Liberty, with its French connection, the coinage of France and the US was very similar in one particular aspect. The 'liberty' figure is present on both countries coins and is almost identical in design.
Fascinating topic. Always interesting to see members post something different and realise how everything is connected.
Live long and prosper.
