I know that this is exonumia, but thought you collectors of Canadian coins might enjoy seeing it.

I think the reverse is quite beautiful.

Indeed, it is a beauty!

I see no reason why a coin collector would not enjoy seeing such well executed design.

Thanks for posting this.




(not usually into Canadian coins, but was compelled to see this one).

I use a Canon XT Rebel 8mg with the 18-55mm zoom that came with the camera.


If you look at the photos, you can see a shadow at the bottom of both shots. Thats because i used available sunlight (low not overhead sun) with fill in flash, I have no fancy set up, just hand held. I normally try with flash and without. Sometimes i use a piece of white paper or a mirror to reflect light back from the shadow side. Some time I use white paper to filter the flash.


I use the automatic focus and usually auto-exposure too. I seem to get respectable results with this totally low-tech approach. You can see a lot of my pics here One Of My Posts


One thing, I try really hard to keep the camera steady. Hope this helps (at least my way is cheap).


Thank for the compliment, they are always most welcome. Good luck with your collecting & photography


Perhaps you will find this link of interest. The photos there are amazing, beat mine hands down.
