Okay, every now and then there’s an innovation in numismatics that truly bamboozles me. This world coin has (believe it) friction/odor tech (better known as “scratch and sniff”). Now I like the smell of money well enough but this is one step beyond and this coin actually emits the smell of gunpowder and smoke when the image of the ship is rubbed! That’s getting into the buccaneer spirit! And it’s appropriate considering that the “Ark Royal” was the flagship of Queen Elizabeth’s navy in its fight against the Spanish Armada. She saw service from 1588 till 1636. If you’re a collector of world coins and have an affinity for buccaneers, privateers, or ships then this world coin would make an extraordinary addition to your world coin collection.
