Re-Entrance and Abcence

| CoinsInHK

Hello everyone,I don't like doing these un-numismatic related blogs, but I decided that I should acknowledge that I've been gone for very, very long from the site. I hope that everyone has been doing alright with the very unstable status everywhere in the world right now and that you all had a merry Christmas and a happy New Year. As a resolution, I guess I'll try to make sure that I'm more active on the site. I hope you have all still been making progress and having fun numistmatically! I wish you all the best of luck and I wish you all to have good health during this time.Sincerley,CoinsInHK

I hope everyone is doing well, and most importantly, stay safe & healthy.

Brit-Asia: My personal collection of Hong Kong coins

Coins-World | CoinsInHK

Hello fellow numismatists!In my last blog post, I talked about the history of Hong Kong's coins. Today I would like to share some of the older coins from my personal collection with you. Most of the coins have a young Queen Elizabeth II on them, but one has King George V portrayed on the reverse. I've also placed the coins next to some modern coinage so you can see the differences clearer. Other than that, "That's all, folks!"

Hong Kong's Coins: New and old

Coins - World | CoinsInHK

Hello fellownumismatists! My name is Theodore and this is my 2nd year with the ANA as a Young Numismatic. Today I'd like to share the history of coins in the country I currently reside in, which is Hong Kong. The current circulatory issues in Hong Kong are the 10 Cent, 20 Cent, 50 Cent, 1 Dollar, 2 Dollar, 5 Dollar, and 10 Dollar coins, all of which have the design of a Bauhinia flower on the back. The flower is also shown on the Hong Kong flag, as theBauhinia is the national flower. Retired denominations include the 1 Cent, 5 Cent, and the 1 Million (Used in the mid to late 1800s.) There have been very few commemorative coins in Hong Kong's history, but some examples are the 12 Chinese Zodiac commemorative coins, the gold commemorative coin for Queen Elizabeth 2's visit to Hong Kong, the 1997 Handover commemorative coin, and a few more. Other than that, there have been a few knicks and knacks as well as changes in designs, however, there are not too many other basics than that to cover. I hope that you have learned something about Hong Kong's currency by reading this article, and have a great day!
