Hello,

Many of us do thematic collections and occasionally create threads related to those themes. However, they often get buried under new posts and are difficult to track. I propose here to post links of thematic threads on both french and english sides of the site, and to keep it updated.
Don't hesitate to post links that I'll put in this message and when you like, to revive old thematic threads with your coins.

Hope it is useful, and happy collecting !

Hi Zac,
Thanks for all that.
I was mainly thinking of threads related to coins. So I did not add the TV, favourite songs or pets. Those are something else.
Cheers, André

I'm honestly thinking of starting a thread about reptiles on coins, but I can't really think of any (beyond some featuring on modern circulation coins from tropical countries).

There are a few. Ex. the NZ Sphenodon or Australia 2 pennies for the most well known, New Guinea crocs, several tortoises and turtles etc.
Scroll through the animonnaies !
Sure a thread would be nice but not with links, with people own coins :)

@ZacUK
That site is genuinely interesting, never even knew some of the animals that were on there had ever been on coins.

Now I'm thinking about starting one for plants on coins instead. :D
