  1. That no one cares is a bit steep. The question arises in Sweden among politicians to make Sweden a republic from time to time, but the Royal family sits strong in Sweden. We have a representative monarchy that means the King has no real power any longer and is more a ceremonial head of state. Our King has been on the throne for quite some time as well, since 1973 (nothing like QEII though with 21 more years) and some people want her eldest child, Victoria to take over. But we'll see. I myself represent a party that is mainly for republic but I stand with the Royal family I like them! One really ironic thing is that the Queen, Silvia, has become a real symbol of Sweden, and she's from Germany haha Ohh the irony hehe
  2. Yep! Prize on it's way from Sweden to @PansPurse
  3. @Bullionbilly I seem to be in the list twice? Both as nr 9 (which happens to be both a favourite and lucky number) and 62? Even if I wouldn't mind being in the list twice for all the nice prices I think you can cross me out on 62 and keep no 9
  4. Wow! It's cool to see the generousity of people
  5. I have been digging through the Swedish silver treasure chest and pulled out a few coins Representing three monarchs and totalling of 2,5 oz of fine silver if you calculate the total weight and the silver contents Hope whoever will be pleased I don't know which is most fun... Winning, sending or digging my treasure chest haha!
  6. Don't worry about that I have nothing to do with them and the Swedish mint havn't existed for years... All our latest coins were made in Finland and the Netherlands... **sob**
  7. OMG! Lindt mints?????????? Never even knew they exited!!! I'm way to fat than I need and want to be but I need to visit the Lindt outlet in Kungbacka now
  8. Ohhh lovely! I'm definitely in! As last year I'l chip in an assorted lot of old Swedish silver coins ranging from 40 to 80% silver
  9. Fake silver is tricky from time to time... I just yesterday found out that a Spanish 20 reales 1894 that I purchased veeeery early in my collecting days have turned out fake. πŸ˜› Failed the magnet test as it slid of faster then I placed it almost and ways a full five (5!!!) grams less than it should πŸ˜› On the positive note, it's the only fake I found in my collection so far So this forum is good as it was here I learned to look for fakes
  10. Seems to be Calcutta mint as there is no mintmark that I can see. I am however notoriously bad at judging fakes and what not... But doesn't it seem rather weakly struck the ARD VII in the name and G & EM in KING AND EMPEROR but not the rim on the same places? Other than that I would suggest it's been cleaned by the looks of it... But there are likely others knowing this better
  11. Welcome to the forum from Sweden A rather nice place to be if Spain fails hehe. The forum that is, not necessarily Sweden this time of year hehe
  12. Family crest would be nice Now you got me dreaming of even bigger stacks hehe
