    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 ☺️

    Stopped by the LCS to buy a $3 Indian Princess I had him set aside for me, when he showed me a coin that he had just bought an hour before and that doesn't come thru his shop very often.  I was first person to see it and It was love at first sight.  Big, chunky and lots of history.  Oldest coin I own and my new favorite.
    1799 8 Escudo


    Also picked up an 1880 Young Head sov to get over the purchase amount needed here in California for exemption from sales tax.

    Slightly poignant one here today consdiering the D-Day 75th Anniversary that has just passed. This came up for sale from a dealer who I think confused it for a normal silver 1oz Maple as the price was on par with those. It is a 2004 reverse proof SIlver 1oz Maple featuring a double privy mark which would have been for the 60th Anniversary of D-Day. Mintage according to Numista is 11698 so nice to add one of the lower mintage Maple privy's to the collection.

    I saw this on The European Mint's website a few weeks back and decided to add one to my Group Order list.
    It did come at a bit of a premium, but as with most things from the Perth Mint, the quality is of the highest order
    I seem to be really getting into Aussie coins of late

    Kind of went on a gold bender, thankfully before the price of gold went up...
    Huge “Thank you!” to @Pampfan for this beautiful 1987 Gold Sovereign Proof! This completes my minimal date run of 1980-1990 Gold Sovereign Proofs.

    Also a surprise gift was included...A Franklin Mint, Flags of the United Nations, United Kingdom Sterling Silver Bar.

    Now for more gold...Received The Royal Mint 2019 Strike on the Day Queen Victoria Celebration Sovereign (with the distinctive mark below the dragon’s head, as seen on others). There is one more arriving from another order placed with @TheCoinConnection!
    More Sovs!...An 1885-M Young Head Victoria Gold Sovereign. 

    A couple of Gold Half Sovs!...A lovely 1980 Gold Half Sovereign.

    And an extremely nice 1913 Gold Half Sovereign.

    Also received some US minted gold...A 1908 $5 Indian Gold Half Eagle.

    And lastly a stunning beautiful $2.50 Liberty Gold Quarter Eagle! Just love the color toning on this one!

    MickB got a reaction from Tn21 in Today I bought (Non PM).....   
    I bought these from a firm in Holland at 10 Euros each and have ordered a case of six more. A bit pricey but there's one brand that sells for 75 Euros per bottle, don't understand why they charge that high a price. 
    It is very smooth to drink and there's no other water like it, so I don't mind buying it once in a while.

    Today I received a case of bottled iceberg water. Four out of the six bottles survived the Yodel delivery and I wish I was at home when the delivery arrived as I would have sent it all back. The driver just shrugged his shoulders at my wife and said I need to chase up with the supplier for a refund for the damaged goods. 
    Trying to get hold of Yodel on a Saturday is something else.
    Apart from that, this is the best water to drink.
