911 Memorial Coin
Coin 14

In a letter to America written by Osama bin Laden
published in the Observer, the holy warrior/terrorist
(take your pick) spelled out what he wants from

See Link:,11581,845725,00.html

Osama said: " As for the second question that we want to answer: What
are we calling you to, and what do we want from you?

(1) The first thing that we are calling you to is Islam. "

It was the same demand made by Prophet Mohammed to Emperor
Heraclius so long ago. The jihad continues ...


To make the collection more complete,
I am trying to get the following coins:

1)Fernando III of Castille-Leon aka
San Fernando
2)Commemorative medallion of battle
of Lepanto
3)Constantine XI, the last Emperor.

good luck finding your Constantine XI. I hear there are only aboout 100 of them, and they run in the range of $15,000. But I would LOVE to have one, as they were minted in the final hours of the greatest civilization in history.

So much? I thought they run at about $3,000. I won't be able to afford one then.
