  1. Thanks
    Frenchie reacted to augur in 20 Francs Advice Please   
    And here is the complete date run:

    1879/1880 Monnaie de Bruxelles, 1886/1887/1888 Casa de Moneda Caracas 
    1904/1905/1910/1911/1912 Monnaie de Paris
     
    1879/80 and 1904-12 are alloyed with copper and then pickled, 1886-88 are alloyed with silver and from locally sourced gold (Guyana)
    The dies were always made by the Monnaie de Paris; while all coins are reeded, the reeding varies from mint to mint with a finer and slightly higher count in Bruxelles, more of a cogwheel reeding from Paris and a rather rough one from Caracas. (I haven't bothered counting)

    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 ☺️

    Frenchie got a reaction from goldmember44 in Gold high spot price   
    It's what we 'd say a wishful thinking ☺️ All is relative : maybe in a few years, gold will be considered as a bargain  at these levels and you will be happy to have seized the opportunity to get it even at 1500£ ! Look at Bitcoin in the first years, coming from 0.01$  to more than 1000$ in 2013. When it did hit these "highs" would you have consider to buy it ? Certainly not, if you looked in the past price levels. So let see where we go now, if gold breaks the 1380/1400$ levels and retests successfully these levels with a pullback , it will be a clear and screaming BUY signal for me

    Good serie but seems pale compared with the "Great Tea Race" 2016. imho..
