    jultorsk got a reaction from Norskgeld in XF $10 Indian Head Blues   
    I do like the design of the $10 Indian Head coin. The eagle is gorgeous. It is on my "must have some day" coin list as well. Pay no heed to negatives IMO - if it is an easy on the eye coin, you have not gone wrong. They are highly collectible coins and such a coveted design they have even copied to generic silver rounds. Looking at the USA stackers sales ads they always get snapped up quick, so you will likely encounter no difficulty liquidating it if you so would choose in the future. Enjoy your coin and if you'd like, post a pic of it for us to salivate on on the "Today I received" thread here and see how many likes you'll get! 😊

    jultorsk reacted to RichmondStacker in Gold panning in Costa Rica   
    I went to Costa Rica last month, one of the areas we were staying in was famous for gold mining.  Large scale gold mining is banned in Costa Rica but panning in the rivers is still allowed for the locals.  The rivers are full of fine gold.  I went out a couple of times for a few hours with the father of the hotel owners we stayed at.  He had been mining gold in Dos Brazos for 50 years, it was amazing watching him pan.  
    Here is a video I made of the gold panning.  I didn't take as many shots as I would've liked as I was too busy enjoying being 5ft deep in water shovelling rocks to get to pay dirt.
    I also bought some gold from local miners for £28 a gram, I would’ve emptied my bank account if there was a cash machine but we were in a small village in the middle of no where.

    Also regarding the spots, it seems like when used in heraldry the spots are very common.  This image below is similar to the design used on the coin, and the reference page has a good amount of interesting history as well:

    Hi! I just found the design for the Yale of Beaufort. :-) I must say I really like the design! It's my favourite after the dragon and the griffin. What do you think?

    For sale:  A selection of 2005 Proof Sovereigns, raw and ungraded and potentially a good opportunity to get a high grade coin for less money, if a little risk.
    @Numistacker has said:  'If you look to the USA unslabbed coins are now becoming more desirable and buyers go after the raw coins which they can buy more cheaply as they hunt for bargains in order to add value to them by grading.'
    There again, perhaps you just want one to complete a collection.
    There have been many graded 2005 Sovereigns for sale on the forum and some command prices of up to £1000 
    Today, I am listing just ONE half sovereign and ONE full sovereign until I can get a feel for their interest.
    £250 for the half
    £420 for the full.
    No boxes or COAs but they do come in RM screw caps.
    Note please
    I am in Poland at the moment. I will be reunited with the coins on Feb 21nd and can take more up to date pics. Coins must be paid for immediately or they will go back to storage on the 22nd. They will be posted on Feb 23rd via SD. Yes, I have a very small window 🙄
    Coins are only sold when payment is made by bank transfer. UK post only.

    1 oz Queen's Beast Lion gold from Chards arrived today. I was not in the market for buying anyone more QB Gold coins (until the next release) but had an email that this item was back in stock and very competitively priced. Unsure if I should keep this coin or sale it on the forums as I already have 10 Lions in my gold stack (https://thesilverforum.com/topic/16222-show-your-stack/?page=6).

    Received all seven of my graded coins from @Numistacker, thank you very much for all your help and advice with that process. I'm pretty chuffed with all the grades i achieved. Cant even complain about my undated 20p, at least its genuine!
    Here they are with a few other graded coins I already had in hand. Still absolutely loving my Gold Dragon & Phoenix!
    I think thats it for my coin purchases until.........
