Kay and Brad Ream of Banyas Barnesyarde have made available a set of elongated coins in honor of 2010 St. Patrick’s Day.
The set consists of seven different designs rolled on eight coins.
The three cent designs consist of a shamrock with a face smoking a pipe and wearing a hat proclaiming “St. Patrick’s Day,” the head of an Irishman with a pipe opposite a shamrock with “St. Patrick’s Day” in between, and an Irishman with a pipe centered in a Shamrock with the date “March 17, 2010” and “St. Patrick’s Day.”
The design rolled on both a dime and a cent features a side view of an Irishman below a shamrock with the slogan “Kiss me I’m Irish.”
The nickel design features a leprechaun leaping in the air and clicking his heels with “Happy St. Patrick’s Day.” The quarter design has a leprechaun playing a squeeze box surrounded by shamrocks and “St. Patrick’s Day.” The half dollar design shows a leprechaun leaning on a pot of gold coins with shamrocks in the background and the saying “May the luck of the Irish be with you.”
All elongateds bear the year 2010. The set of eight costs $13 including postage.
