Somebody once said , why not stick a real persons head on a coin that would be something, we all know where that led......

I like them too and I think that the offset numeric for the value helps as it allows a bigger image for the subject. 

I think the UK holds the record for one of the ugliest coins in the world .

British 1 Crown ( Churchill 1965) - Foreign Currency

 

And also some of the finest.

I guess beauty is in the eye of the beholder. I really don't like the 1p Dormouse but the Salmon and Bees are great in my opinion.

The puffin is our counties adopted bird and nest in our area. For those that have not seen one, here is one returning to feed its young on Skomer Island about 5 miles offshore.

I’ve seen puffins many times but annoyingly only up close in winter (I presume actually early spring), when their beaks have lost their colour (I think the black and white might also be greyer) and they don’t look as spectacular as that one. The 20p could be either but at least they haven’t colourised it…yet…

Of course, another island not so far from Skomer is Lundy, where they had unofficial coins with the bird on it called the puffin and half puffin.
