I try to take a coin from my collection at least once a week and try to find as much information/history as I can find. The ones with specific themes and/or heads of state are the easiest but I still tend to find information that I didn't expect. This is the first one I am posting. If there is interest I will keep posting them. Enjoy.
Anyone who collects world coins has seen FAO as part of the design on coins from many nations. But, do you know the significance. F.A.O. stands for Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations. It was founded in 1945 in Quebec, Canada with the goal to "modernize and improve agriculture, forestry and fisheries practices and ensure good nutrition for all”.
