Coin Zoo Born

First animal coin at the Coin Zoo

Today marks the birth of Daniel's Coin Zoo! On 15 October, 2005, the Zoo went live with 41 coins from around the world.

The first coin was added on 8 October -- that's it above -- but of course construction of the Coin Zoo had started well before the first coin was added. Perhaps one day I will write the story about the coin that ignited the idea that became Daniel's Coin Zoo.
