Coin Orientations

Recommended Posts

I don't think she swung both ways, and neither did Albert lol (I'd be astonished if he managed to father even one of her children! ;)) :P

Anyway, a very interesting topic to bring up, this has long had me scratching my head at the differences!

I'm pretty sure from memory that my lone Roman British coin (long mislaid) had the same orientation on both sides. Certainly my oldest coins to hand (~400 years) do. I wonder what changed, or if it was just a trend/experiment. I'd love to hear a summarised history from anyone in the know :)

Good vid despite a few sound issues, and a very interesting point, good stuff!

(Also 'demon tabletop' back lol)

Very good, kept me interested and chuckling all the way through. Especially confessing the 17 takes...... and then dropping it!

Cool topic. US coinage annoys me i must admit, with the horizontal axis. But i guess it is more of a natural flip action, now you mention. Constantly see US youtubers flipping other world coins and having to correct.

Your channel will be one-to-watch if you carry on like this, keep it up!

P.S. "Victoria swings both ways"? Shameless click bait :lol:

I also like how you didn't mix up the obverse and reverse (maybe a bit easy since I don't think you mentioned them!)...it amazes me how many folk (very experienced professionals as well - doesn't give great confidence!) get those wrong.
