    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!

    I send all mine via ngc uk now. For the extra couple quid it coats you get them back a lot faster.
    You have to drop off and collect unless you go via numi, then he does it all for you.

    terakris reacted to Marc in 2016 GOLD PROOF £1 NGC PF70dcam - last round £1   
    Decided to keep this coin and withdraw from sale. I did think i had priced it really well but still I was knocked down a little which kind of depressed me sicne to be honest i would probably buy this coin again if someone had one for sale at this price. I think this is 100% a buyer market on the SF. This  is a spectacular coin for for the price and mintage of just 500.    In 1983, the Royal Mint issued the first One pound coin, featuring the Royal Arms. Since then the design of our pound coin, has featured, bridges, cities and national emblems of the United Kingdom. 2016 marks the end of an era in Britain's coinage. As The Royal Mint issues this  last Gold Proof  'round pound' depicting four heraldic beast's which symbolise the the four countries which make up the United Kingdom. In  it's place  a new 12 sided  pound coin will enter into circulation from March 2017. Price: £990 plus £8 postage.
    Metal: 22 carat Gold
    Denomination: One Pound
    Diameter: 22.50 mm
    Weight: 19.619 Grams
    Quality: Proof
    Happy to swap for a couple of Australian sovereigns plus £490.
    Has matching silver coin if anyone is interested for extra £100 not graded in box with coa some toning.

    Next submission deadline is 30th June. And practice I am at NGC every two weeks to drop off and pick up. Therefore submissions are likely to be processed much quicker than previously.
    Generally, unless there is a special reason most submissions are now being processed by NGC UK due to the faster processing time.
     So far the volume of coins being submitted justifies  providing this service. It does rely on volume to be cost effective as many times there are a dozen tier varieties that need to be submitted.

    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 ☺️
