    Not all "Received Today" but seen for the first time together today... now on the way back to the Bank. Apologies for the quality of the pictures (taken by hand with my Mobile) that don't do the coins justice. Any marks you think you might see are on the plastic cases as the coins are 100%. I've also got all the Boxes and Certificates for all of these coins. If anyone has either a 1979 Proof or 1996 Proof Full Sovereign that they no longer need that they feel would Grade as a perfect 70 (or if you have one already graded 70) please get in touch as that would help me complete my 1979 to 2019 date run all in Proof 70 Grade. All of my set are PCGS except for 2 which I will get Crossed Over to PCGS.

    I am really fond of South-East Asia culture and architecture. This year the Tiffany Art Serie has highligted Angkor Wat and the Khmer style. I didn't know this serie before and I decided to order this release. This is a real shock as I have never seen such a beautiful coin, way way way above everything I have seen. Thanks to the the "Smartminting" technologie, we are able to get this incredible level of details and reliefs. I have tried my best to highlight the coin and the details, but it was really chalenging as it was not with a macro lens ; I had to shoot in low light to get what I wanted. With this low light, I need a large aperture (that softened the details, and narrowed the depth of field), and higher iso to get a decent speed but creates noise... I have managed to get some macros with my phone and a special macro lens, the pictures are not good, but you can see the incredible level of details, all in a 5 cm diameter. I am hooked by this piece of art and I am pleased to share it with you. I will definitely not flip it ! Grab it at the "low price" while you can if you are interested ...it really worths it Ok, this is not a forum about photography technics so enjoy ☺️

    Pep talk: don't sell your PM now

    A plea to you all: sit on your hands. We stand on the breakout of what will very likely be one of the greatest bull markets of our lifetime. Think about what has happened over the last 10 years: unprecedented level of stimulus into a monetary system that is no longer fit for purpose. This is much worse than the abuse of the system that drove the prior PM bull markets of 1971-1980 and 1999-2011. The fallout from this crazy experiment will drive the price of gold by similar factors over the next decade, just as it did during the previous bull markets. Bull markets always run longer and further than nearly all their early adopters think is possible. PMs will be valued many multiples higher in the years to come. Scoot on over to a "mainstream" investment site like MrMoneyMustache or MoneysavingExpert and gold doesn't even figure on the radar. They are ALL about passive index funds and chasing the stock market. They worship VTSAX. If you are lucky you might find someone holding 20% bonds. They won't even look at gold until it has at least doubled from current levels, and even then they will be some of the earlier adopters. There will come a time to sell your PMs and buy something that is better value, but that time is still years away. It will be when everyone thinks it is a good time to be overweight on gold, when Dow/Gold is somewhere between a half to a quarter of its current level.

    Few interesting pickups a bullion 2012 sov, a Jersey millennium sov, Manx half sov, Sydney 1915 half sov in excellent condition. Nearly completed my second tray of old school Libs too. i cannot express how addictive and satisfying it is to fill up these Panda trays with dateruns and same type coins. They look awesome.

    This little birdie walked yesterday back into it's nest: first NZ platinum coin, mintage 350, 3 graded but only one as top of the pop. Big thanks to @Lr103 for helping in the acquisition and @Numistacker for preserving it.

    It’s been a while since I commented in this section because it’s been so busy for me. However today I received a number of beautiful coins and wanted to share the love. 1562 milled Elizabeth sixpence 1605 hammered James sixpence 1684 Charles II sixpence 1703 Vigo Anne sixpence 1921 Peace Dollar (it completes my collection but will probably be swapped for a better version when the opportunity arises!) My sixpence collection is now more or less done. I will be looking for higher grades in the cases where I’m not content. My attention is now going back to the stack and filling some tubes.

    I have had the opportunity to grab this Tiffany Art coin from a LCS at a screaming low low low price that I could not miss it ! This is the 2011 "Manueline" . An architectural and decorative style which developed in Portugal in the late XVth and early XVIIth centuries. and which associates traditional Gothic structures with Romanesque, Moorish or Oriental inspired ornamental sculptures. The coin is not as impressive as the 2019 Khmer (not the same advanced minting technologie) but still really beautiful. This coin sells around 800£/1000£ on ebay. I got it for the tenth of these prices

    Not a coin but coin related. A Harrison's improved sovereign balance. The coin needs to be the right weight to balance and the correct thickness fit through the slots.

    Well it is over a year again since I was able to get some mintage numbers. Does anyone still want to know what the mintages to date are. I have long since stoped collecting them since I couldn’t keep up with it. ill see if my contact is still good. Likes on this post will be a yes!

    Just got my military set back by PCGS, very happy every coin got a 70 grade. This set may not be as popular as the culture set which has Kew Gardens but it is equally stunning. For both sets, I've made a showcase here (one of the coin is yet to be photographed): https://www.pcgs.com/setregistry/collectors-showcase/world-coins/50-years-50p/imagegallery/3809

    A bit of an indulgence. I wanted a few of the 2oz S1 proofs as they are stunning coins, but didn't want to start on the slippery road to collecting the boxed set, as some of them are impossibly difficult to get and expensive. Sourced these from Aus for roughly the price of the single 2 ouncers, and still being mid-table rarities.
