Still a gorgeous coin, but shame it's not a gorilla. Ha ha

2013 and 2012 are kind of affordable. Dates before that are too rich for me. Shame I'll never own a full date run of them

I have 11-14. I'd love the other three but I can't see it happening.

Nice MZ.

Those sovereigns don't look as small as I thought they would.

The Perth Mint snake still looks the nicest of the bunch to me, I know many would disagree.

I was surprised too. About the size of a 20p or half the thickness of a £1 coin.

The best bit is I can handle them as much as I want without worrying about the none mintyness resale value.

That's pretty cool. Gold doesn't tarnish does it?

Sovereigns are only 22carat though. So I expect some older sovs will suffer some moderate discolouring.

Fair point.

I'd love a big gold coin that I could play with.

Got my 2014 panda, 2014 UK year of the horse + $5 half eagle (1903-S, if anyone was curious) through the post, pleased as punch.

 

Have to say, i've read quite a lot elsewhere ragging on the UK year of the horse, frankly in my opinion it's definitely on par with the Aussie example so i'll definitely be continuing the series.

A few more bits to add to my collection.  I know some people hate them, but I quite like the coloured stuff.

Btw. Fiji's are 2012 and 2013.  It's a shame they don't change the design.

Are those colourised from the mint or aftermarket?

I think the taku look the pick of the bunch, love those coins.

 

I'm pretty sure they're after market.

A few Baird and Co rounds.

Looks like I might start collecting 1oz bars as well :(

I am loving those rounds too, i only have the tiger at the moment, Baird and co have a dragon and a snake also on there web site but have to buy in 20's unless there is any on the bay.
