Dogs. Fiber Arts. Occasional Cats, Trolleys & Trains & Flowers. And other moments from my life that I find interesting.

Cameras:
**Motorola ic902 - Probably the best of the (poor) choices with Nextel for a camera phone.
**Canon Powershot A430 - Oh, how I love thee, let me count the ways....Primary camera - if it a good photo, this took it.

That asian coin, unless I'm totally off base, looks like a Japanese coin I've got. It's probably, like, ten ¥. I could say more with a better picture. I love foreign coins...

If your talking about row 5, left-hand side as the asian coin...

Well, the only current Japanese coins to have holes in the middle are the 50 yen coin (silver), and the 5 yen coin (a yellow-bronze). Not sure if that fits with that particular coin, as the colour seems off...although I guess it could just be the photo, or condition of the coin...

wasps, yeah, or both. I'll try to get a better picture some one of these days...when I get a decent camera, most likely!

If that asian coin has a horizon line with some bent over sheafs of grain , and a couple Japanese / Chinese-looking characters it's probably a yen coin. Chinese coins I'm not that familiar with.

Look here and see if you recognize it: http://www.geocities.com/tokyo/Island/6653/jcoins.htm

Alternately, a Google image search for chinese coins: http://www.calgarycoin.com/hub_china.htm

Hope that helps!

Wombat, thanks for the help! It is definitely a Yen coin then, and when my new camera comes I will take a better quality photo of it and post it, I figure Kozika San can probably ID it for sure.
