My post today is more of a light humored stab at this ridiculous winter. I know this post doesnt feature a coin but bear with me, I think you will enjoy it nevertheless.
Cold hard cash is exactly how you would describe my featured five dollar British Antarctic Territory note. This note represents a few of the things I dislike (winter) and some that I love (Britannia).
I dont like the cold, especially this current winter. You see, I work outside for a living which makes my job a breeze in the summer! However, this winter I am really paying the piper for my summer enjoyment. The last two days here were teaser days with the temperature reaching 45 degrees. I was practically running around in shorts and a t-shirt. Next week its back to the deep freeze again with highs of 15 degrees. Oh well, sooner or later, and I fear much later spring will prevail.
The things I love about this note is Britannia on the obverse and a penguin on the reverse. Penguins are among some of my favorite birds. The continent of Antarctica, though cold, intrigues me but only from a distance. My lifes goal is NOT to visit Antarctica.
Thus overall this COOL note both literally and figuratively represents the frozen tundra I must endure for the temperate and comfortable summer in Wisconsin.
Enjoy and hang in there, summer will EVENTUALLY arrive! By the way I got this cool Antarctica note on E-Bay for about ten bucks.
