  1. The Quintuple Sovereign is my first foray into the Pistrucci St George slaying a dragon design and I have both proof and BU issues. I like and prefer its big and hefty size compared to the other sovereign sizes. All my quintuple Sovereigns are the Pistrucci St George slaying a dragon design. I do not have any of the gold Crown-type Proof Commemoratives with 5 Pound face value.
  2. Early kobans (c.1600) weighed 18 grams of 842 fine gold. Kobans made in the mid-1800s weighed 11.2 grams of 600 fine gold. And the last koban made in the 1860s weighed only 3.3 grams of 600 fine gold. Below is a modern day reproduction of the 1600's Japan Keicho Koban (pic from Panda America)...1990 struck BU Japan Keicho Koban. This recently issued Japan Mint Keicho Koban commemorative is an impressive size of 75mm x 38mm and weighs 19.5 grams of pure (9999 fine) gold. They are made in the classic way, hand struck with a number of punches indicating the denomination, authority under which it was issued, the mint and the era during which it was produced.In ancient times, the Chinese emperors kept Vault Protector coins to bring them good luck/fortune and to protect their treasures. Below is a modern day gold reproduction of the Bao Yuan Vault Protector coin (pic from Panda America)...Undated, 1990 minted, proof China 1+ troy ounce (1 tael) .999 gold Bao Yuan Vault Protector coin (the only 1 troy ounce gold Vault Protector coin minted by the China Mint to date).
  3. Another favorite in my collection is the 1995 Jamaica $100 Bob Marley gold. Not for artistic or intricate design but simply because I am a Bob Marley and reggae music fan. Wicked, mon!
  4. Exactamundo! The 2009 UHR St Gaudens gold Double Eagle was issued as BU only (no proofs), just like the 1907 UHR St Gaudens gold Double Eagle pattern it is based from. I own 4 (1 for each member of my family) in OMP bought directly from the US Mint on first day of issue (with the assistance of 3 friends due to limit of 1 per household rule when they first came out in 2009).
  5. For those who don't have one in their collection, I highly recommend acquiring the 2009 US Ultra High Relief St Gaudens Gold Double Eagle (while they are still available at fairly reasonable premiums in the secondary market) remake based on the original 1907 UHR St Gaudens Double Eagle gold pattern on display at the Smithsonian Museum in Washington, D.C.
  6. NOT at the moment and NOT just gold but here are a couple that are projected to be hot sellers from the US Mint for 2019: Fall 2019 - American Eagle 2019 One Ounce Palladium Reverse Proof Coin Date TBD - American Liberty 2019 24K Gold Coin
  7. Just to point out: the Pistrucci St George slaying a dragon design was fully re-engraved for 2007 and this carried on to 2008. To most, this version of the Pistrucci design is least liked.
  8. A couple of Karl Goetz medals in gold. 1929 Lessing & 1929 Pope Pius XI
  9. If the year has meaning for you, why even entertain the thought/possibility of selling it? Personally, I would leave it as is (in OMP), the same way I acquired it.
  10. Been also looking for 1 (at a reasonable price) to replace a damaged capsule on a .9167 fine - BU 1 ounce gold Britannia.
  11. Modern Proof coins often have mirror-like fields and frosted devices. Reverse Proof coins would have frosted fields and mirror-like devices.
  12. Noticed the 9 quantity. Some Feng Shui implied/involved?
