I voted for the Ruble. Don't like the Cromwell portrait at all.

 

 

Cromwell was definately not a pretty sight it has to be said, he apparently had quite a few warts to top those features off as well.

 

 

But put it this way since the Cromwell coin just breaks into a five figure sum dollar-wise it's not one to be turned down lightly! :ninja:

 

I know i'll never have one.

Cromwellian, even if I don't like the subject matter.

 

 

You don't like Cromwell either? :ninja:

 

Me neither, he was an ultra religious fanatical fruit loop, who massacred the Irish, executed a king and banned Christmas. Such a charming fellow.

 

He died in 1658, he was dug up three years later, put on trial*, found guilty of treason, hung, drawn and quartered. His head was then placed on a pole outside Westminster Abbey where it stayed until 1685, upon the accession of James II it was removed and changed hands several times before being buried again in 1960.

 

 

*Actually i dunno if they bothered with the trial. I think they'd already decided he was guilty and thus decided to execute him pretty much straight away.

 

I bet Charles II was delighted when he ordered that one!

If you are going to go through the trouble, not to mention the mess, of digging up someone 3 years dead to put them on trial, I hope you would have a pretty good idea that you are going to find them guilty. :ninja:
