first triangular coin, true or false?

Postby mana » Wed Dec 19, 2007 11:20 am

recently was minted a triangular coin, it was supposed to be the first unordinary shaped coin of its kind issued ever, but unexpectedly it wasn't so. the fact is, that there were minted a lot of triangular coins a long time ago. for example: starting from 1992, many triangulars were produced by diferent minting companies in different countries, even on isolated islands. i guess this is a strong controversory information that the Tutankhamun coin was not the first triangular coin seen by the world. the article shows bright examples on this subject. i found it on http://dig4coins.com/Articles/37-Other% ... coins.html
if you're interested in details, you may explore it.
