WOW! that is old, I will give you 20p with no date for it Robert, Lol, most interesting hobby, we along with thousands queued to view the "Staffordshire Hoard" and we thought that was old (7th century") puts that coin into perspective..

I didnt know you were a coin collector Robert, interesting subject especially when they are this old, my two sons collect but their collection is quite modern in comparison, good picture

It appears to be in excellent condition for something which presumably was well used and so very ancient. Superbly captured in this image with great light and details. Fascinating to see.

Lovely detail in this. I wonder if this would be a good candidate for layer stacking - which I am lousy at but trying to accomplish. Just a thought.

The trouble with macro photography is that the depth of field is very shallow. In this macro photograph, the bottom of the coin is out of focus as a result, because the bottom of the coin is closer to the lens than the top and, unfortunately, the depth of field does not extend that close to the lens. If you were to photograph the coin square on, so that it appears circular in the viewfinder, then all of the coin would be in focus, because all of the coin is the same distance from the lens.
