How smart is your coin? Bet it isn't as smart as MDM's dimensional 'The Brain' coin from Samoa. The last few years have seen an impressive uptick, not just in numbers, but also in the complexity of fully dimensional coins.

Last year, MDM debuted the first of its Colours of Wildlife series, with a cool-looking Tiger coin.

Silver coin notes enjoyed a big flurry of activity just a couple of years ago, headed by the New Zealand Mint and, to a lesser extent, CIT. For a short time, it looked like they were going to be huge, but interest tapered off quickly, resulting in a sparse release schedule these days. That's a shame, [...]
