  1. I have a 2 ounce 2017 Libertad that I bought from a reputable dealer web site, one of the majors, and it has this discoloration or breaks in the frosted surface around parts of the rim of the coin. It just seems like it got worn off from being in the mint roll or tube. The discoloration is only on the rim and it's just kind of a darker toned silver color. I'm mostly curious because it makes it appear like there is a coating that gives it the characteristic frosted look, similar to American Eagles. Can anyone confirm exactly what the nature of this facet is with the Mexican Libertad?


    Thank you for all the replies. I've actually had good results with the several Silver Brittanias I've acquired. It's an unfortunate reality about the mints mass production of bullion but I guess it makes it that much more special when a coin makes it through the process unscathed.
  3. Hi Folks, I started stacking silver and gold earlier this year and quickly became hooked. I started with bars and then coins and have been rapidly figuring out what specific things I like best. It has taken a lot of trial and error since it's hard to know preferences until one actually gets things in possession. My favorites are the Perth coins, Libertads, and most government bullion for stacking. Like a lot of people, I've been disappointed by the mixed quality levels of bullion coins, with spotted and scratched coins fairly common in orders I've received. Any tips for getting better quality coins will be appreciated. I hope to do some trading and or selling with other members once I get established. I live in Massachusetts, USA. -Daniel
