    Some 1937 Aussie Crowns. 👑 🇦🇺 "Casey's Cartwheels" was the nick-name given to these large silver five shillings, after Lord Casey - Treasurer of Australia who issued these for circulation. Being so heavy, they weren't well recieved by the general public, so they only lasted for two years. There were over a million 1937 crowns minted, but the 1938 mintage is only about 1/10th of the 1937. "The rumour is that many more 1938 crowns were minted but rather than being released into circulation but they were sold to China where in 1948 they were re-minted as Chinese (Sun Yat-Sen) dollars." 
    These are hefty to hold and can be quite 'dramatic' in appearance when the toning happens to be right. There's apparently one (or maybe two?) variations of the 1937; a minute speck under letter I on the reverse (a.k.a. the "dot variant").

    Delivered today in exquisite condition, a delightful,  46.24 gram bar of what can only be described as "stuff dreams are made of".
    From a super forum member 1817Karl. A big "THANK YOU" my friend.
    Oh, and the two coins were nice as well.

    Terrible photo but you get the idea, buying since late June, still waiting on my 2019 Fantasia coin arriving too.

    Thanks @arshimo2012 for this Britannia.  There are rarer Britannia issues but what a gorgeous coin.  
    I’m always intrigued as to how the same coin can look very different depending on the light.  I should invest in a better camera. Couldn’t decide which photos to post, so apologies for posting several.

    I've only gone and done it! 
    @TheGeneral posted a tantalising pic of a pile of ASE he picked up the other day and I commented that I really need to add some of these to my stack! That night @Wackattak924 listed some for sale.......fate......I'd say!
    Generic for some but I think they're stunning.

    Few pickups, both reasonbly rare in their series
    1887 Sydney Shield AU58 - I think this could be a grade higher considering other coins I have
    1883 Melbourne Shield AU55 - Very nice grade/coin

    For me, i prefer classic cars. I think there’s just something about owning things that are heirlooms and also won’t age/depreciate.
    Yesterday i spent the day looking at a car collection and 2 of my DREAM cars were there. When i say DREAM i used to have a picture of these 2 cars together as my computer background for years when i was in my early teens. Colour of both exactly the same as the picture i had - it’s possible they were even the exact same cars as the collector had various photoshoots for all his various cars.
    They don’t make ‘em like they used to.

    This is the start of my stack bought over 8 weeks. Joined the forum recently and bought another 20 x 1oz dragon bars immediately (I should of joined earlier!). Also bought a 10oz stocksdale bar, a few eagles and my first libertad. I work away a lot but hopefully they will all of been delivered by the time I next get back so I can post some unboxing photos 👍🏻

    Today I received:
    1oz gold Queen's Beast Griffin (£1325 bought on this awesome forum from @kneehow2018)
    500g silver Geiger bar
    4 Perth mint dragon bars (to fill up my tube)
    Silver stuff came directly from Geiger. I paid a hefty premium on the 500g bar but I just had to get one!
    I'm debating with myself whether to take off the vacuum sealed plastic around the 500g bar. I probably won't.
    2p included for size comparison.

    Congratulations. Actually probably a blessing in disguise since I just reserved some 12oz gold pandas for pick up next monday so cash may be a bit tight but I still think the Britannias are lovely sets and at melt cannot go wrong. Thanks for letting me know.

    Big23 reacted to blindguy in NO MORE COLLECTOR COINS FOR ME!!!   
    I have to sell some of my slabbed collector coins and currency due to unexpected medical bills and I was not happy at how much value the coins have lost. Mint state Morgans are 10% to 20% back of grey sheet and just about every coin I have to sell has lost money for me over the last 30 years!  So from now on I am going to buy gold and silver coins as close to melt as I can. I think gold and silver are going to keep going up. J P Morgan said yesterday they expect $2000 gold and I am in that camp. I still own lots of collector coins in high grades but I will not be adding to that collection anymore.  Jim    P.S. My wife is fine after the surgery and we will beat the breast cancer.
