PostSubject: Coin Patterns   Thu Jul 21, 2011 1:48 pm

It is quite a while when I finally remember this thing that I want to ask out there.. What is a coin Pattern? Why are there Coin Patterns for some issues and none for other issues? Why are there coin Patterns for the same issue made of different metals? What is the purpose of coin Patterns? Are coin Patterns only of recent times? Are there no coin Patterns for Phil-Spanish coins? thanks...

Nuong unang labas ng mga Marcos pattern sa Quaipo ay nakabili ako ng 17pcs...tuwang-tuwa ako nuon...pero nalaman ko na recent lang ginawa yung mga pattern na yon...unang pumasok sa isip ko ay talagang noob pa ako nuon. Maski yung isa kong kakilalang dealer ay binebenta ng 50php isa yung Marcos pattern para ma-dispose lang. Hindi ko nga nagustuhan na binebenta sa mga Amerikano ng mahal yung mga yon dahil alam kong mura lang ang mga yon. Hindi pa kasi alam ng mga Amerikano na kagagawa pa lang ng mga yon.

Pero ngayon...ang mahal na pala ng mga yon ngayon.

Somebody out there can answer my questions on this coin pattern..What is (some are silver and yet others claims that there are gold patterns?) it? What is the purpose? Why were some patterns made of different materials ?

Hi Al,

Here is some info i found from about.com

"Definition: A pattern coin is a coin that has been created as an example, and is not meant for circulation. Pattern coins have been created for a variety of reasons, including sample coins for VIPs (such as congressmen voting on coin legislation), and for testing various designs and die cuts in the mint equipment."

I was able to get one coin patter of Imelda/Marcos from an Auction, im not sure though why its quite pricey even if it has no silver content. Maybe because of the fact that its just a trial coin/pattern.... therefor, limited...

I hope i was able to enlighten even a bit Smile

Thanks everybody.. I was just curious because somebody offered a coin which was not included in my list and when I told him that, he said that it was a Pattern.. that is why is asked about it.. Again thanks to all of you..
