What is your favorite denomination?

I am curious what your favorite coin denomination is and why.
I have always been enamored with Jefferson nickels, and as the years stretch I find myself increasingly interested in every series of US nickels and now cents. Perhaps because they are the lowest denominations but I think it has more to do with designs and colors. For me there is a lot to appreciate in the various nickel series; Buffalos are simply a gorgeous design, Shields seem to have a deep sense of antiquity, and V nickels can have some great contrast in the design or toning.
Recently I find myself drawn to cents more and more as my type sets fill out. Out of the many large cent designs only one is meh or bleh in appearance to me. My appreciation for the old copper seems to intensify the more time I spend on this forum and I find a perpetually larger amount of cents in my ebay watch list weekly.

Not enough poll options to include the various gold issues, if they are your taste say so.
