    You have it right. 👍 The largest one is for the 100 years of the royal dynasty (1863-1963), with all the kings up to that year. The smaller one (1964) is for the wedding of the Prince (and later king) Constantine II with Anne Marie of Denmark that year. Both are .835 silver.

    Lunar photo thread...

    My Year of the Goat collection, with all versions of 1 oz I could find (BU, proof, gilded, antiqued, ruthenium, several colored and combinations!).

    I have to ask other guys here, who are longer in this than me: is this grading thing (among others) kind of addictive or what...? 😀 I have found myself looking among my other coins, to think what I could potentially send for grading (except the ones I usually do)!

    Monthly Goals?

    About a Sovereign worth of stuff on average, as new monthly budget. Plus an occasional gift to my self in a trip or an event. 😉

    I think that the Swans (which year actually...?) definitely command a premium. The ratio will also be directed from the premium of the gold you'll be getting but I can't imagine anything near the spot price ratio.

    Is this a good deal? My mum has bought it today

    I don't think that this particular one will ever has more value than its metal content. Of course there is always a chance to find someone who would pay more. 😁

    I would appreciate the opinion of more experienced members in something that troubles me (meaning almost everyone here actually!). 😁 I am preparing to send the next coins and I have one that has some strange marks in the field, in two places at least. Do you think it is cleaning and will go for Details or something else? Would a possible conservation help in such a case?

    Today I bought.....

    The first coin of the Gold Greek Gods series from (guess...) Greece! It is in the fifth year now and I will probably go for all of them. I really hope they will make it to the whole twelve. Mintage 1,000 (for the first two - increase to 1,200 from 2016) Gold 999; 3,88g; 17,5mm Just to clarify that it is Zeus (or Dias) for the few of you that can't read the Greek letters! 😜

    How can this be legal?

    In the description of the first item he says it's from sterling silver. The title is misleading though.
  12. The two coins from the Lunar series, mint condition in their original capsules. Asked prices are 55€ and 150€. Postage is extra and will be from Ireland registered. Payment by PayPal F&F. Can discuss exchange for something that interests me, feel free to pm your proposal.

    Very glad that 7 out of 8 of my 1967 coins were successful (in case you were wondering whose were they!). 😁 A couple of questions though: Should all silver coins be getting the "S" designation? Because the French and the German (above) ones are silver for sure Same applies to the Gibraltar Crown, which I am almost certain that it is the silver version and not the cupro-nickel one Whatever the answer may be for the above, I am very happy with my first submission and I must thank Numistacker that made it possible and pretty easy for me to enter this journey. 🙏

    Multitude of Fakes! Beware this Ebay seller!

    Are we sure it's not a gold coin?

    Multitude of Fakes! Beware this Ebay seller!

    It's so obviously fake (and a bad one!) that you can only wonder... I have reported it.
