The currency of the country Belarus is called the ruble and its 3 letter symbol is BYR.  This type of bank note was first printed in the year 1992 after Belarus broke from the former Soviet Union.  At one time this currency was pegged with Russia’s but a few years ago it decided to change it so it was tied to the US Dollar instead. In the pictures below there is a 1000 Belarusian paper money bill from 1991.  It is in uncirculated condition and has a mixture of colors including blues, pinks as well as light green.  On its back is a print of the Academy of Sciences building which is in Minsk and has been around since 1928.  The frontof this bank note has a geometric shaped pattern surrounding the paper money’s denomination 1000 number.

Mercury Head Dimes

This post is dedicated to the Mercury Head Dimes and here we will talk about information about it, show images and more related to this great coin.  By the way if you didn’t know already it also goes by its other name of Winged Head Dime.  The origin is in the fact that the Barber series was thought to need a replacement and therefore artists competed for this job.  Those that submitted designs include: Victor David Brenner, Charles Barber, Hermon MacNeil and the sculptor who got the job: Adolph Weinman.

Artists generally would use models to create the face of Lady Liberty on various coins and generally we know who they are.  Mercury Head Dimes is one where Weinman never said who it was nor did the model herself claim to be it.    The design itself depicts Lady Liberty wearing a winged cap (which for those familiar with Greek Mythology explains how it got its name).  It is actually a Phrygian cap whose origins go back to the time of the Roman Empire and whose meaning is freedom as we…

BRITISH GUIANA 4 PENCE SILVER COIN 1941

In this posting we will take a look at a 1941 British Guiana silver 4 pence coin.  This is a rather small coin (see the pictures below) that weights in at 1.88 grams,  has a sterling fineness of .925 and has .0561 ounce of silver in it.  On its obverse or front side is an image of a crowned former King of the British Empire and Emperor of India: George VI.  The reverse side has the denomination of 4 pence in the middle of a crowned wreath as well as the county’s name around the rim.  There were not many of these produced with 180000 struck in total that year.  Our particular coin appears to be in very fine condition. British Guiana became Guyana an independent sovereignty in the year 1966.  Interestingly its currency known as the Guyanese Dollar has been used since the year 1839 and that was even when it was a colony of Great Britain.  Its creation had a lot to due with the transition from Dutch rule to British in the early 1800s.  As far as coins are concerned the groat or 4 pence d…
