    not at all sure what mine is, or would be as I have yet to sell any of my Pm, be it coins, bars, to realise any profit,  might find out in three years time when I plan to retire and liquidate some , but I can see things like the 2005 proofs I own have increased in value , may be the best is the 11 coin 1887 set, which stands me at £0 but  that's because in inherited that so may not count, i think the next step i must take is getting into my first grading to maximize some of the values .

    2017 Kilo silver Libertad and 1 oz gold QB Griffin have probably had the best gains.  @FoolzGold I wish I had picked up a Palladium Eagle when they first were first available.  I intended to get one but I wasn't paying attention and they sold out before I could.

    Just curious as to what others have found to be their best precious metal investment over the past two years - bars or coins, etc.
    My best bar investment is by far my pickup of a 1 ounce pamp fortuna rhodium bar - which I purchased for $900 in 2016. 
    My best coin investment was the 2015 1 ounce platinum eagle which I purchased from the us mint directly - got it graded by pcgs - and was able to flip it for a $1,000 profit.
    my biggest losses are just all my billion holdings currently - as precious metals are taking a beating to pound town as of late. 
    We will see what the future holds

    Meaning if I want to capture the whole of the coin at an angle whereby the lighting is good (daylight from window), usually I'd have to put to 8 or maybe 11. Having the coin flat means I can get to 2.8 if I want, but you are correct that this lens feels best around 4, again not useful if the coin is almost flat (if you want to capture all areas of the coin in focus).
    This is the lens i use, it really is fantastic https://www.sony.co.uk/electronics/camera-lenses/sel90m28g
     
    So, think i'm getting there with the setup now at least, still more work on the lighting for sure, have some further bits on order in that regard, but the copy stand method tethered to PC is a winner.
    A little post-processing (which i'm still learning about), and this is the result, about 50-60% happy with this now
