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.

Picked up some rounds from Intaglio Mint.
I really like the Modern Tribute collection. 2 oz high relief rounds of various american coins. The detail, high relief and texturing is really nice.
Also more Cryptozoology rounds for my set and some antiqued Spartan Rounds (Molon Labe). The werewolf round is really nice in person with high relief.
The antiquing is not the best. Probably because the coins have so much detail, maybe its hard to get in all the crevices.

I got a 1/20oz silver libertad and a gold 1/2 gram elephant. I know the premiums for those may be high but I don’t want to spend a ton for a huge gold coin, although I did buy a sovereign, and I really love the tiny silver libertad and want to get the silver libertad proof libertad sets that come in a wooden box that Apmex sells.
I want to know the mintage of the 1/2 gram elephant as I am thinking about getting it graded to show NGC the amazing work done on a coin the size of a grain of rice.

I’ve been looking for a decent 1821 sixpence for a while. They’re not massively rare but it is difficult to find one in goodish condition. This arrived today and I am extremely happy with it. It’s a dirty little coin but cleaning terrifies me and so it’ll be going into the collection as is.
if anyone does have any thoughts on cleaning, please can you let me know off thread?

Just bought five of the new Perth Mint 1oz silver Dragaon & Dragon billion coins (mintage 50,000). This is the third of this type of Perth Mint coin the first being the "Phoenix & Dragon", the second the "Tiger & Dragon" and now the "Dragon & Dragon". Not sure what they will do for the forth coin, perhaps an Australian theme - Emu & Dragon or Koala & Dragon??
Also bought the second of their Birds of Paradice 1oz solver bullion coin.
