First, my apologies for placing this in the General Satanism Discussion Forum, but alas I have no access to post in the Online Market Place Forum, and did not know where else to place it.

In a recent conversation with my ex-wife, (who lives 1100 miles away, thus I have no way to verify her claim), she told me that she had encountered a coin, similar in size to a silver dollar, that was crafted as a tribute to Dr. LaVey.

According to her, the front side was embossed with a cameo of LaVey, and the rear side with what seemed to be a Serpent.

She was never the type to just "make things up", for the sake of doing so. Although not a Satanist herself, she is quite familiar with Anton LaVey's works, and is no stranger to Satanic Principles and Philosophies. She actually encountered it in the Lost and Found at the Casino Hotel where she works, and was going to send it to me after the 30 waiting period, but the owner of the coin came to claim it.

I have searched the mercantile resources available through the CoS and This Board, and so far have found nothing of this coin. An extensive Google search on the topic proved unfruitful as well.

Does anyone have any knowledge of the existence of such a coin?

Thank you.

I have no knowledge of such a medallion. I'm sure a talented Satanist could produce such an medallion of fine mint quality for himself. I'm now curious if such a coin was manufactured.

Hahahaha! This reminds of the mistaken identity somebody here had about a Ghandi bumpersticker.

To our knowledge here at Central, no such coin was ever produced.

This reminds me of the portrait I drew of the Doctor using Conte Crayon. "Oh that's Lenin" someone remarked.

It could be a a non-official homage. Some people carve coins as a hobby, replacing the original design by a new one.

I have seen some Russian Cthulhu coins that were very well done.

Now that's an interesting possibility...



Personally, I can't even begin to imagine mistaking one for the other, but then I'm not Lazarus' ex-wife, either. ;\)

Not only is these a significant difference in the likeness within the image, but as my ex described the coin, the reverse side was embossed with a Serpent.

Did anyone else see this and and think it would make the perfect background to a gift certificate for the emporium?
