    trozau got a reaction from Lindeman in Interesting/best Platinum coins of 2019?   
    My size preference is 1 Troy ounce size.
    For 2019, the Perth Mint Australia $100 Dragon BU platinum issue gets my vote.
    My favorite Pt series in my collection is the China 100 Yuan Panda proof platinum issue from 1987 - 1990 (only a 4 year run 1 troz series).
    My other prized 1 troz Pt issues in my collection are::
    a) 1987 China proof Sino-American friendship issue with NYC skyline showing the Twin Towers
    b) 1989 Canada proof Maple Lead issue and 1999 Canada BU Polar bear issue
    c) 1998 US proof American Eagle issue

    Glad I was able to snag the 2019 UK 100 Pounds platinum QB Unicorn & 2019 Australia Aus$100 platinum Dragon for US$891.11 & US$907.39, respectively last Mar 31 on the Bay of E (before the uptrend). The nice designs were an added bonus.

    Here's mine...


    1923 Germany Notgeld Rhine-Ruhr 50, 100, and 500 Million Mark
    Things were very grim in Germany. War, human atrocities, ruthless dictators, crushing defeats, and financial collapse plagued the nation. German cities issued their own coinage since the imperial coins were completely worthless. It was an emergency and replacement money was needed. That's what notgeld means: emergency money. This piece of notgeld from the Rhine-Ruhr region is particularly gruesome. The coin was struck at 33 mm in diameter, designed by the famous German medalist Karl Goetz. Greek god Prometheus appears on the obverse, chained to a rock with an eagle eating his liver as part of his eternal punishment by Zeus. On the reverse a child appears in an eternal flame. There are incused letter on edge: NOTGELD.
    There are three denominations of the  Rhine-Ruhr notgeld:
    50 million mark -- brass
    100 million mark -- white metal or silvered bronze
    500 million mark -- gilded metal   I own a full set of 3, plus an additional 2 - 500 million mark coins for a whopping 1.65 billion marks. To put it in relatable context: by November 1923, one US Dollar was equal to 4.21 trillion marks.

    It behooves us to keep notes/documents/list/information on our collection/stack/properties/assets. It will be a very important/useful information for those we leave them to, so they know what the true value of our legacy is (should they decide to/have to liquidate).

    Recommend just keeping gold inside the safe. Silver has too big a footprint for its price to volume ratio to warrant being kept in the safe. Use them as door stoppers (LOL).

    I highly recommend adding some platinum to your collection/stack. Hopefully, you can get to examine a platinum coin at a coin shop near you or at the next coin show/fair in your area. Platinum is just slightly denser than gold so it has an even smaller footprint. Love its heft and very nondescript nature (unlike gold that draws attention by its signature yellow color).
    The platinum QB Unicorn is my first foray into the Queen's Beast series and for now, I am content not chasing after the rest of them.
