Steve D'Ippolito's 1810 Bisti, Georgia


This coin was issued for use in Georgia, after the Russian empire absorbed it. Note the lettering entirely in the distinctive Georgian alphabet. Even the date is done with Georgian lettering, in a scheme similar to ancient Greek and Hebrew usage where the first letter of the alphabet was 1, the second 2, the tenth 10, the eleventh 20, the nineteenth 100, and so on. The Georgian alphabet had enough letters to get one through 9,999 with this system, though some of the letters are no longer in use today.
