We've repeatedly commented on the ever earlier launch of lunar coins, often appearing up to a year before the actual change date, but the Year of the Dragon seems to exacerbate that even further.

How smart is your coin? Bet it isn’t as smart as MDM’s dimensional ‘The Brain’ coin from Samoa.

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. I think the first truly breakout design was the Mint of Poland's pretty Fortuna Redux coin, [...]

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

With shaped coins becoming ever more popular, we thought we'd have a look at the latest wave of releases from various producers in a single round-up.
