    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.

    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?

    It seems lead would be last when it comes to value but these shot lead bullets are valuable...to us interested in history..they come from the battle fields of Gettesburg...they were not just shot but hit things...perhaps trees or perhaps soldiers...american civil war at its best and worst.

    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 ☺️
