Based on dealers', mints' and central Banks' news mails, ultra-modern numismatist Pabitra Saha reports on the latest coin
designs. Here are some that caught my eye recently. -Editor
Hungary 2000 Forint - Miksa Roth
This coin honors Miksa Roth, Founder of Hungary's central bank. The obverse seems rather flat, but I think it's a nice design.
And I appreciate the unusual perspective of architecture on the reverse. My neck hurts from looking up. But I like it! -Editor
Turkey 2015 20 Turk Lirasi
This coin in Turkey's city series honors Nevsehir Ankara. I like the rocky landscapes and architecture. Well done, I think. And I
have a soft spot for coins and medals featuring hot air balloons. I took a ride in one once, and had a blast. Highly recommended. -Editor
Ukraine 5 Hryven 2015 Pidhirtsi Castle
Another architectural design, in classic style. This one's even more impressive when enlarged - click on the obverse to see a larger
version in our Flickr archive. I like it. -Editor
India 2015 -Indo African Summit
> Um, what the heck IS this mess? Superimposed maps? I'm totally lost on this one. -Editor
