Breasts aren't that uncommon on coins and notes... But I can honestly say this is a first for me:

 

1926 Albania 1/2 Leku

Look at this one with QEII on the obverse:

All that muscle and yet the size of a blind cobblers thumb

One of the more interesting threads of late.

My contribution (although it is NCLT so perhaps does not qualify):

There is also the Goya "Naked Maja" (Maja Desnuda) proof coin from Equatorial Guinea, the huge "Femme Somba" coin from Dahomey, etc. but I don't have pictures of those handy.

I don't think she is completely nude - there seems to be a thin, maybe see-through, Lindsay Lohan style garment there

 

Certainly not something you can wear to work!

Speaking of which, she recently came out with her own line of "clothing" Link to "celebtv" gossip site If you check the site you learn that the crowd rather disliked the show. Some styles were topless with "heart-shaped pasties" covering nipples.

 

I suggest she design the new 10 cent piece. :ninja:

Nice coins there! I am completely taken aback by the ratio of the figures Man and Lion on the one-half Lek. If that was an african lion, then the man would be about 12 to 14 feet high. A great center for any basketball team!

 

However if the man is normal at 6feet3inches average height, then the lion would be the size of a small dog! wow!

 

Whatever it is, the artwork is sufficiently lacking in all the important proportions ;)

 

Still it is an interesting thread when it gets to gold. Thank you for the coin pics and holiday cheers to all!! :ninja:
