The last meeting of the year was a talk by Shailendra Bhandare from the Ashmolean Museum entitled 'Introduction to Islamic coins from the Indian Subcontinent'. It was very interesting and well presented. a fascinating introduction to this series.
The coin illustrated here is a 1 Lats coin from Latvia. This is one of their excellent series of festive designs.
There are many coins to chose from with a Christmas theme to suit all pockets. Latvian coins are some of my favourites. see the latest edition of Coin News magazine for more.
