BELGIUM, medals
    Belgium is a little country but it struck a lot of medals from the 15th through the mid-20th century.  Medallic art is somewhat lost in the sauce of virtual reality these days, but in days of yore the things served as permanent reminders of events, kept in the drawer after the newspaper had been burned for kindling, etc.
