Back to coins....
Some old gold and some new, some platinum and silver too😀.
A few gold quarter ounce QB Dragons/Griffins and 2016 Libertad proofs (some for members on the Forum), along with a 2016 Perth mint sovereign. Will think about grading some of them in pursuit of 70s! Another ounce of Pt - this time the 2016 Austrian Philharmoniker, which I bought actually right on the price dip in early January....so well pleased with that, and a nice big coin.
Then silver - a stackers tube of 10 QB dragons, plus a few extras for capsules of the dragon and Griffin, and a slabbed Dragon. Happy to report that no milky ones in the tube (I checked!). Shelled out the cash for a silver PF70 QB Lion one ounce proof, and a few more in boxes - now I see why everyone goes gaga over this proof design 😉. Some more irresistible 2016 Libertad silver proofs, and a few 2017 kooks (1 ouncers and a doorstop 10 ounce) and 2017 Britannias for good measure when the silver price dipped.
The old gold: "mission accomplished" on the sovereign mintmark set as I just found a nice Ottawa C 1911 sov to complete the set. The Bombay I 1918 I picked up last week made me focus on that missing Canada one😊! 1911 C by far the most common of the Canada years (1908-1919), but at 257,048 minted that is still a pretty low % out of the 40 million minted worldwide that year (numbers from goldsovereigns.co.uk). Got it along with a very nice 1912 London sovereign, and a 20 francs 1897 Lucky Angel.
