Medieval Spain (Aragon) Obolo and Dinero of James I  1213 to 1276

Aragon is a large region of Northeast Spain. If you squint, cross your eyes, and (more importantly) know what you are looking for, you can make out ARA on the right side of the king's portrait and GON on the left. Our many thanks to THCoins at World of Coins who identified this piece for us.

The king himself is James I (with several spellings including Jaime, Chaime, Jacme, and Jaume), who reigned in Aragon from 1213 to 1276AD.

Great Britain Crown Winston Churchill  1965

These large crowns are made of copper-nickel and do not carry much value. In fully uncirculated condition they may retail for $5 US dollars or so. Nice coin, nevertheless.

An interested reader named Tim submits this for your consideration:

The 1965 Churchill coin came in 2 versions like the Charles and Diana coin. There were 9 million of the normal coin struck and they are pretty worthless. However, the VIP version has a rainbow type shine in the metal compared to the dull normal coin. There were only 1000 VIP coins struck, and the last time I heard they were said to be worth £1000 each.

France 1 and 5 Francs, Henri, Pretender Coinage  1831

These interesting coins were struck by Henri himself, not by France. Henri came close to being king, and he had credentials, but never quite made it. He was a pretender. Henri of Artois (1820 - 1883) was disputedly King of France from 2 to 9 August 1830 as Henry V, although he was never officially proclaimed as such. He was also pretender to throne from 1844 to 1883. He was the son of Charles Ferdinand, a son of Charles X of France.

Henri issued coins in 1 and 5 franc denominations. The 5 francs are quite a bit more valuable:
