Really a gorgeous coin, but, why the fingers?

So the coin doesn't fall ??

...probably holding it to get the light just right...a poor man's budget lighting is something I am familiar with! Nice style on a sensational coin!!

Stunningly detailed. In answer to some prior query: its a smart move to spend the money on the coin, not the camera, or the photography!
