Coins

A small sampling of the random coins I've collected. I've labelled them as best I could. The real mystery is the big bronze medallian in the middle. I found it shoved way in the back of a drawer when I was only a few years old and it never belonged to my parents. It says:

VNIVERSAL EXPOSITION SAINT LOVIS VNITED STATES OF AMERICA

on the back:

BRONZE MEDAL

LOVISIANA PVRCHASE

EXPOSITION

 

The date reads MCMIV, which is 1904.

 

Apparently the medallion in the middle is from the World's Fair in Saint Lois in 1904, commemorating the Lewis and Clark expidition 100 years earlier.
