With its commemoration of the 70th birthday of the Prince of Wales,
the Royal Mint has released coins with the head of the prospective
next British/Commonwealth-dominions monarch ("double-headed" as the
Queen's head is the obverse and the Prince's the reverse...somewhat
reminiscent of the Danish commemoratives issued for every succession
from 1839 to 1912).
This might be seen as a preview of what the coins of the next reign
might look like if the Prince doesn't age much more before succeeding,
but the heads of the Queen and Prince face in the same direction,and
the longstanding British tradition is that each new monarch's coinage
feature a head with the monarch facing the opposite direction from
The World Trade Center towers MUST rise again,
at least as tall as before...or terror has triumphed.
