A Coin with an Imagination...

Coins-World | Kepi

While pawing through the big basket of foreign coins on my coin dealers counter, my eyes zoomed in on this one...In my mind's eye I saw a backside view of a triple Jessica Rabbit character from the 1988 movie "Who Framed Roger Rabbit".  It's actually Three Giant Elands from Africa...   What do your eyes see?

As you can see in the photos below, what one sees on a coin is all in how one views it!

Great fun, Kepi!! Your blog made me smile today. Thank you. I see three turnips with really long legs, strutting their stuff, or maybe in a line like the Rockettes. Am I just weird? :) I was surprised to see the Giant Elands. Your blog reminds me of those 3D posters that show two entirely different images depending how you look at it. Thanks for the fun. And I think Bugs Bunny framed Roger Rabbit... Can ya blame him?

You got me. That is all I could see until you I saw the other image. I think I even have one of those.


Level 6

That is a busy design

That is cool! Your eyes see patterns, & sometimes you are surprised at how you see things.

Wow!!! What a great coin. It's amazing how ones eye can focus on something and then refocus on the same item and see something altogether different! Fantastic coin and blog. Thanks for sharing.

Well Kepi I see a nice coin. And a couple of nice legs. The coin was made so we would notice them. I did not see the movie but it's a nice pick up. Why ? Because you like it that's why. Thats why we collect. Have a nice week end. Mike
