Happy Sunday ... man, it's fricken cold outside right now!! (-30 C)

Hmmm, what might warm me up a bit on such a chilly northern Canadian morning?

Hey, maybe a blast from the Middle Ages and/or the Medieval Knighthood era might put a smile on my face (there were some pretty cool Game of Thrones type coins during that era, eh?) ... sure, let's go with that as today's theme.

This first group is from the Middle Ages (800 AD through 1350 AD) ...

I'm sure that everybody has slightly different boundaries on the Middle Ages and/or the Medieval Era ... this next group is from the mid 1300's through until the mid 1500's, depicting the true knighthood era of the Middle ages (I love these coins from "Lorraine")

Oh, and then there's this final medieval example showing a dragon eating a maiden!! (yup, it doesn't get more Game of Thrones that that, eh?)

... thanks for taking a peek at my gallery

=> please feel free to comment and/or please step-up and add one of your coins to my thread (I love seeing other people's stuff)

Until I saw that coin I never would have thought there to be a coin with a bear crawling along a wall! What is it doing up there? Why is it crowned? Any further background to these interesting coins Steve?

That's one of the fun aspects of collecting ancient "animal" coins ... I find myself in "modern" times like on this coin (1799 AD) and then I also find myself in 500 BC with my Lydia Lion & Bull coin ...

*fascinating*

Peter ... sadly, other than the coin being amazingly cool, I don't know the significance of the bear walking on the wall

This coin has a pretty cool side-profile (sweet relief)

Agree. Nice coin.

However coins which are high relief are more difficult to photograph...

Wow, it's getting close to Christmas, but this chemo-crap is making it a bit harder to get into the ol' holiday spirit (makes sense I guess, eh?)

However, I am managing to get into the spirit a bit and I've been able to order a bunch of presents on-line (I live in butt-north nowhere, so shopping is a total hit and miss depending upon whether you want something homemade, or whether you want something that the rest of the population actually plays with, or wears!!) ... so again, some local presents are winners, but the selection is very limited, so on-line shopping is a big thing where I live.

Yah, I wish everybody on my list wanted ancient coins, then it'd be a no-brainer!! (easy-peezy shopping for what you love, eh?) ... but mainly my wife has been my present-target ... I usually buy her a couple of first editions for her antique book collection (a collection that I also love, so I'm not sure it's not me that actually collects ancient books?) ... if so, I also buy her a bunch of hoodies and other can't lose winners that she asks for during the year (luckily, she hates jewelry and expensive tastes, so overall, I think that I have a nice mix of fancy books and solid keepers)

... anyway ...

I'm bored and I can't sleep so I just thought that I'd just type and say "hey"

Has anybody nailed any good coin gifts and/or any good spouse or kids gifts this year?

Thanks Simon (yah, that coin rocks)

geki => on-line shopping is good is if you you're buying something "known' ... but on-line shopping is bad if you're buying things with random sizes and materials (then it all falls apart) ...

For example, buying a PlayStation4 on-line is a no-brainer (just look for the lowest price from a reputable-enough dealer) ... but buying a coat, or a pair of pants can be quite a different ride (luckily every boob and every butt is just a wee bit different, so trying to house these objects isn't always straight-forward => they all fit a bit differently) ... but I guess all we can do is check the tags in their current stuff and then pray for the best, eh?

Oki => no, I never seem to have any wish-list items (I think I'm super hard to buy for, because I merely buy everything that I want for myself anyway) ... we both work that way ... which is awesome, but it sucks for the other mate come Christmas time (it is nice when you actually find a winner ... a couple of the first editions are pretty cool ... A Catcher in the Rye ... and The Jungle Book are two pretty cool examples)

... but again, for "me" ... no, I'm not asking for any coins or anything like that, so sadly she'll have a pretty hard time finding a soft-spot in my wish-list (but she usually manages to find something that makes me smile, so I am looking forward to Monday morning, like always)

... and you guys? ... do you have any coins on your wish-list or do you have any other wish-list targets? (maybe a new Ford Mustang convertible?)
