Coins with Fish
As evident in the Coins with Birds (↗) post and the relevant webpages on Daniel's Coin Zoo, it is easy to compile a low-cost coin collection regarding a particular animal. While mammals appear on about half of animal-featuring coins according to Daniel's Coin Zoo, coins with aquatic life are comparatively small in number but are certainly worthwhile to find. The Daniel's Coin Zoo (↗) website comprehensively lists virtually all coins with fish and other aquatic organisms. This post highlights several coins in my collection:
• THE BAHAMAS 1 Cent (1998) coin features a red cushion starfish (West Indian sea star).
• The EAST TIMOR (Timor-Leste) 1 Centavo (2004) coin features a nautilus.
• The GUERNSEY 1 Penny (1998) coin features a spider crab.
• The ICELAND 1 Króna (1999) coin features an Atlantic cod.
• The LAOS 50 Att (1980) coin features a carp fish. Details about this coin are found on its own Money & Geography post (↗).
• The NAMIBIA 5 Cents (2000) coin features a horse mackerel. Details about this coin are found on its own Money & Geography post (↗).
• The SEYCHELLES 1 Cent (1997) coin features a mud crab.
• The ST. HELENA AND ASCENSION 1 Penny (1997) features a yellowfin tuna.
• The SIERRA LEONE 10 Leones (1996) coin features bonga shad fish.
• The SLOVENIA 1 Tolar (1995) coin features brown trout. Details about this coin are found on its own Money & Geography post (↗).
