We have shown 4 different versions of the same image, the Obverse of a Gold Triple Unite Coin of Charles I.
In all four cases, we have cropped the image as closely as possible, and resized to 240 pixels wide, we have used 15% JPEG compression using Paint Shop Pro 7 to keep image files to reasonable sizes.
The coin was photographed using our Fuji S1 digital camera, using a Nikon SB29 ringflash, mode manual, aperture 32, shutter 1/90th. The background as for most of our coin images is a sheet of plain white paper. The camera white balance setting were naturally adjusted to this.

Gives a brilliant gold colour to the coin, but slightly burnt out in lighter areas.
