    I suspect Hell has a better chance of freezing over than witnessing an end to the negativity that exists here in connection with the Special Olympics coin.

    Poor Susan.
    She didn't stand a chance.

    And the historical significance speaks volumes...

    Boudica or Boudicca was a queen of the British Celtic Iceni tribe who led an uprising against the occupying forces of the Roman Empire in AD 60 or 61. She died shortly after its failure and was said to have poisoned herself. She is considered a British folk hero.

    The 1927 UK Penny has Britannia on the reverse holding a Trident, not Boudica.

  • I've always liked the girl on the 5 Lati from Latvia.

    Nice ladies!

    The "School Girl" pattern that @BryceM posted is my all time
    favorite pattern. The Four Dollar Stellas are a close second.

    Is that because she is 50 years younger? :p

    I disagree, Miss Liberty on the Peace dollar I do believe might even be tad older. Just a different look. Peace dollar lady is just much more attractive .

    The bitterness of "Poor Quality" is remembered long after the sweetness of low price is forgotten.

    Very nice. My favorite "Girl on a Big Silver" is this Duchy of Parma, 5 Lire with a portrait of Marie Louise, Duchess of Parma.

    These coins can be pretty expensive so I had to settle for a budget example, which is OK to me.

    Good choice. I was going to post one, but you beat me to it. I have a few of them (see sig). ;)

    One of my three favorite numismatic designs. This Lady Liberty just calls out "liberty."

    Ah, yes, "Hot Britannia." I figured someone would post that one. Good choice.

    Two of my favorites. (Lightside)

    Is there a particular reason as to which direction the female is facing? Inquiring minds want to know. Peace Roy

    The less clothes the better for me. Thank you very much. Peace Roy

    Queen Jadwiga on the Polish issues. I realize that there are folks who will write (and write, and write, and write...) that it isn't really Queen Jadwiga for one reason or another, but the coins are known as them and they are purported to represent her-

    Beautiful example TomB, I have never seen one toned so attractively.

    Attractive coin design, and it’s not Queen Jadwiga. It’s “known” as that because Krause declared it so. No one called it that until Krause guides - it was designed to represent Polonia, the personification of Poland.

    Facts matter. Because something is ignorantly (and repetitively) “called” something or because it is “purported” to resemble someone (post hoc) is irrelevant. PCGS and NGC just regurgitate this misinformation when they put Jadwiga on slabs.

    Some battles you just can’t win against the
    brainwashed masses. As numismatists we should do better to correct misinformation instead of perpetuate it.

    This is one of my favorite Dark Side ladies....

    .
    .

    Also, though neither are Dark Side vixens, I have always appreciated a woman with good cleavage.

  • Well here is a lovely girl that has a dark side.....A viking warrior w/cleavage.

  • And here is her twin sister that has even a darker side.

  • 7Jaguars7Jaguars Posts: 5,656 ✭✭✭✭✭

    Those girls look a bit somber....

    How about Chad 1970 1000 Francs gold???
