His profile face appears on this attractive silver five Francs coin.This French sovereign tried unsuccessfully to stay on the throne in 1848 by gainibg the favors of the upper merchandizing and well-to-do class. This attempt also ruined his standing among other royal houses and principalities of that era.

Coins-World | AC coin$

Quetzalcoatl, the feathered serpent god from the Aztec and Mayan Mexican civilizations, a sun god, a life-giving god and from its huge mouth a human emerging into this realm. The god's head is depicted as seen at a sculpture in a Chichen-Itzá temple in Mexico ancient district within this coin's reverse.The coin bears also the National Coat of Arms on its obverse. Even though it circulated for a short period of time it is perhaps an eagerly sought item due to its curious representation of both sculpture and mythology.Within this decade of the 80's Mexican currency was switching in design from a political past depiction into a more cultural and folkloric tendency. Here I present a nice sample of this trend, part of my internationally extensive currency collection. Enjoy and thanks for your comments.

Coins-World | AC coin$

I have chosen to show this nice coin, and regardless of its well circulated effects, it gives me a sense of antique features.Decorated with a butterfly and a local motif of flowers on one side and the Island's Coat of Arms on the other it has a characteristic collectable attraction.The official currency of Jamaica is the Jamaican Dollar or JMD, it is also signed as $J or J$ locally. It is subdivided in 100 cents and it has certified múltiple denominations, being the ten cents sample shoen here one of them. The JMD was officially introduced in 1969, before then, the Sterling Pound was the known currency of the island.In 1994 the Jamaican Ministries launched a reform redesigning all currency and turning the 5$J into a coin with several other adjustments as economy changes demanded fair actions.Enjoy this nice Jamaican Ten Cents coin as part of my Caribbean and International extensive collection. Thanks for your comnents.

1944 Philippines "Victory" One Peso Note

Paper Money-World | AC coin$

This note is not to be confused or taken as similar to a more recent banknote issued with overprint on its reverse stating "Central Bank of the Philippines" reprinted and circulated at a later date by the then organized Commonwealth of the Philippines under the supervision of the United States Government.The Philippines were invaded and its military forces conquered on December 8, 1941 just a day after the infamous Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor. It was part of the Imperial Japanese schedule and military schemes to overtake a larger área of the Pacific including sectors in New Zealand, Australia and many other Indian Ocean territories. Heavy strughle to regain control of the Philippines islands increased by May 1942 with several Allied operations which started weakening the Japanese Forces and their supplies until their downfall by October 1944.This historical Victory note I hereby present is evidence of the many printed and issued by the US Treasury and as an effort of the War Department to stabilize the economy of the Philippines upon US regaining control of the islands around September-October 1944.As many of this notes were issued and brought into Manila by the US Army and other officials, quite a few made it back eventually as souvenirs from war by GI's and others. My note presents perhaps a few cut errors and other features that can grab a collector's attention. Please enjoy and all comments are appreciated.
