My Three Secret Santas


Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

I hope everybody is ready for a fantastic holiday!  Very well deserved!

This was my first year being able to participate in Secret Saturnalia and, boy, was it a great year to start!

I had fun picking out the coin for my giftee and 🤞 that they’ve received and liked it.

My Secret Santa went way above and beyond for my gift!  I am very grateful for my gift!


I was actually thinking about the Julian bull the other day, funny enough.  I think I saw it posted in the thread about reverses and I thought to myself that would be a neat coin to get……. And now I have one!👍

Who doesn’t love a good campgate?  It’s one of my favourite LRB reverses.  😃  This one is of Constantius II. I’m super excited to add another one my collection.

I really like the big and bulky Byzantine coins and this one doesn’t disappoint!  I can’t wait to research it!

Three fabulous coins that I’m proud to have in my collection!

@ominus1 has been a Santa to me for the past three/four years and it’s always a treat to see what he puts in the stocking/envelope.  Again, I’m very excited to add these to my collection: 88D234D6-6976-42D5-A4C2-A21855F723C4.jpeg.47cb049a65be79e34806b81266615338.jpeg


A Yugoslavian 2 dinara and a large Canadian cent.  🥳🥳 I really like the large cents we had back in the day.  Now we have no cents at all. 🤪

Thanks, @ominus1, you are a boss!

My 3rd Santa is @Qcumbor who sent my a fabulous coin, one of my favourite Byzantines:


I can never have enough of the Byzantine follis with Christ on the obverse.  😀

Thank you again to @ominus1, @Qcumbor and my anonymous Secret Saturnalia gifter.  This year ends on sky high note!  
I can’t wait for Secret Saturnalia next year!

Stay safe, rest well and have fun!

Thanks everyone!

Sorry for the late reply.  It’s been crazy here, especially at the food bank.

My dad just tested positive for Covid, so, we’re hoping and praying for a full and quick recovery.  He has mild symptoms, so, I hope it stays that way.

I hope everyone has a safe and fun holiday!!
