    Just received the 1996, 1997 and 1998 proof sovereigns. Bought these from an Australian auction. They look great!

    Some 2017 Perth Koalas, Some Next Gen 2018 Koalas, and some 2019 Royal Arms. All impressive. I knew what I was getting with the Koalas, but these are my first Royal Arms. I think the Royal Mint is making it a co-standard national bullion coin along with the Britannia. It's going to be the base of my national bullion coin stack from now on. Very cool coin.

    Managed to get an up to date set of the silver proof Queens Beasts series. The bullion are pretty, but these are absolutely stunning!

    Been a bit excited for the last few weeks, but today I finally received this 30 g golden beauty! Hugest of thanks to @Marc
    Long story short, i'm a bit of a fan of The Phoenix (sentimental place from my uni+ days), hence my collecting of most things Phoenix such as the dragon and phoenix coins here! https://thesilverforum.com/topic/11158-today-i-received/?do=findComment&comment=247324
    During my many discussions with @Marc i told him about my affinity for Phoenix coins and he showed me one he had. From that moment i wanted it. Just loved the super design with the Phoenix and obviously the gold! I've got to learn more about the history behind it too. I think he was very reluctant to let it go, but i'm chuffed he did!
    Here its is, A 30 g (¥100,000) gold proof (PF70) coin commemorating The Enthronement of Emperor Akihito (Heisei). This emperor recently abdicated, the first time an emperor has done so in over 200 years. They are not rare coins, about 100,000 of them in proof, but they are very scarce outside of Japan. Now that the emperor has abdicated they probably hold a bit more historical significance! There's quite a story about the Japanese 20 g gold coin from this era, but maybe @Marc can tell that story in another post!

    Continuing my 2005 theme, the latest addition. My first gold 50p and even better in the hand.
    Always on the lookout for world gold dated 2005.

    1871-S: Shieldback MS62 Mint Error
    Now as everyone knows I've viewed many 1000s of sovereigns, and not once even with high scrutiny have I seen this type of error before, in fact because I only collect sovereigns I didn't even know it existed 🙄
    Interesting little coin and bonus grade!
    Shame the holder sits right where the error is, may break the slab!

    Picked these little 1gm bars at today’s spot. 
    These Malawi coin bars have been on my radar for a while, they are usually a set of 7 , missing the Roo, Maple and Libertad. Seen them go for decent money on fleabay. 
    Also a small 9ct gun, because, well why not?

    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.

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

    10oz Scottsdale - from Mrscottsdale (first of a kind for me, such a cool item)

    Thank you to you both,
