    The Newfoundland (NFLD) two-dollar gold. Even for NFLD this was an odd duck. They are a little larger in diameter than a dime, have three denominations written on the back ("TWO HUNDRED CENTS" and "2 DOLLARS" and "ONE HUNDRED PENCE") and were issued in vanishingly small quantities that amount to fewer than 100,000 pieces total over a twenty-three year period (1865-1888) with eight years of issue. Try putting a set of these together!

    I like those! I came very close to buying one a while back. @lordmarcovan ended up with it.
    Perhaps he’ll post it here? 🧐
    :p

    Other than the 1880, one can assemble a date set quite easily.

    Agreed, but the caveat I always keep in mind is to assemble a collection of coins that I like. That's the trick.

    I remember reading this thread from my lurking days - I can’t remember if it was from a search or not. Hilarious though!

    Other than my two, Two Cent pieces, I do not have anything that fits the 'odd' or 'pattern' categories. Cheers, RickO

    Very similar to the Sydney Sovereigns ((1857-1870)). The Wyons at work again - nice coin.
