    Mintage figures

    The 'lol' acronym can also mean 'lots of love'...….just to confuse the situation lol
  4. Something a little different, these are my latest coins to add to my collection form the Japanese 47 prefecture series of 500 yen coins. They was minted to commemorate the 60th anniversary of the forming of the prefectures (a bit like our counties) with a design for each. here is a total of 47 coins and I'm now about half way through the series

  12. A little more info for you from 'The building Medalets of Kempson and Skidmore' by R. C. Bell page 36/7 ''D&H War.297'' (then gives a description of the token followed by) ''The building was originally a hospital founded at the beginning of the reign of Henry II. At the dissolution of the monasteries John Hales purchased the chapel and converted it into a free school.'' Unfortunately it gives no information on edge varieties
  13. The two listed in the 1990 edition are 297 with edge reading Coventry and 297a which is plain. There is no mention of any 'Coventry token' edge for 297 in the corrigenda section of the book
