Easy as ABC....

The theme for this month's virtual meeting is coins and learning or education.

This includes commemorative medallions featuring universities and colleges and also school attendance medals.

I also found a jeton which has a maths teacher on it! it is in fact a reckoning piece showing a man keeping his accounts on a chequerboard and on the other side the alphabet. these jetons are found in different languages but started n Germany in the Sixteenth Century. I found an image of one where the die maker had got the wrong letter in- I overstruck on O. they all seem to have only I for I and J and V for U and V.

These are two South African university medallions
