  1. I would be happy with a 5 Pound (Quintuple Sovereign) gold coin with any Christmas card.
  2. Here's 1 of my twin PCGS MS 69 2001 $1 ASE WTC Ground Zero Recovery (got them for my 2 kids to remind them of probably the most tragic historic event in their lifetime).

  6. I have wanted to get the 50 gram Valcambi CombiBar but it still remains on my want list.
  7. When in the mood for .45ACP, I EDC my GLOCK 36 pic from the World Wide Web
  8. From what I've read, Pistrucci was constantly at odds with his benefactors. He insisted in doing his own work on effigies of the royalty and refused to base his work from other artists renditions that the royalties preferred (a more flattering version of their likeness).
  9. If we are talking about pie in the sky sovereigns that we would love to own, mine would be the 1820 pattern 5 sovereign coin St George and the dragon remind you of the 2009 5 Sovereign?

    Gold sovereign

    Jealous of folks with sovereigns minted during their birth year. Gave my first grandson a proof sovereign the year he was born.

    Gold sovereign

    Nice! 1916 is the year my father was born. No sovereign was minted the year I was born so next best thing was for me to get one minted 100 prior (1855).
  12. 2009 Proof Sovereign 5-Coin Set The collection of 2009 consists of companion coins that each bear Pistrucci's dynamic masterpiece in all its original glory yet show fascinating idiosyncrasies that make them entirely individual. It also, for the first time, includes a quarter-sovereign. In the hands of different engravers during its long history, Pistrucci's classic has been adjusted in minor ways many times more - the streamer from St George's helmet has come and gone while other elements of the design have been revised. Fortunately, the original coinage tools have been preserved. They were entrusted to the Royal Mint Engraving Team who, for the £5, the double-sovereign and the sovereigns of 2009, manufactured the coinage dies directly from Pistrucci's originals. For the half-sovereign, tools used to produce the coins of 1893 were needed since not until that year did Pistrucci's St George and the dragon at last appear on its reverse. This is the first time that these tools have been used directly in the modern production process.
  13. LOL. Technically, one can do calculations on this abacus ring using a pin or toothpick to move the beads.
  14. Got this yesterday. Abacus ring in gold tone made of titanium steel. pic from the World Wide Web.
