I finally took some time and got new pictures taken and uploaded for the Zimbabwe and 500L sets that are at least consistent across the board even if I don't necessarily think these are in every case the best images I've gotten of each coin:

Now that I have nice photos of the Zimbabwe bird in the yellow of the $2 coins I decided to use that to fill the gap in my banner image. I'd originally left that corner open to account for the banner, but the current system with the banner image moving depending on where you look creates a bit of a "darned no matter what you do situation. The old banner looks just fine... until the rank ribbon goes away and you have a winning set entry and now you just have a gap in the corner. doh!(shrug)

The Zimbabwe set continues to be a living and growing thing as i recently found a snippet naming the type of tree depicted among the Great Zimbabwe ruins on the $1 coin so I added something about that type of tree.

Last weekend I used some quiet time on Father's day and I finally got done looking at the last of the Venezuelan coins I have to pick the best ones. That might have been a sign that I was getting close to submitting, but then Sam got Hand, Foot and Mouth and Shandy tested positive for Covid the same day, so we're all just trying to get through the day.

But I did, today, take advantage of sale on Memberships to upgrade my membership here, so I'll now have a $150 credit towards the submission I want to make... I just need to fill out the forms and mail it out... lol

Awesome pics William, the detail is fabulous.  :golfclap: I really like the 500L coins, well done.

Were the cents the hardest to image or another coin?

Thanks! I think one or two of the Zcent images ended up being a bit "soft" on the details but I'd say the Italian coins with those odd alloys are probably harder to get nice looking photos of overall than the Zimbabwean coins. The Bimetallics also tend to be a pain. :frustrated:
