    Some 1937 Aussie Crowns. 👑 🇦🇺 "Casey's Cartwheels" was the nick-name given to these large silver five shillings, after Lord Casey - Treasurer of Australia who issued these for circulation. Being so heavy, they weren't well recieved by the general public, so they only lasted for two years. There were over a million 1937 crowns minted, but the 1938 mintage is only about 1/10th of the 1937. "The rumour is that many more 1938 crowns were minted but rather than being released into circulation but they were sold to China where in 1948 they were re-minted as Chinese (Sun Yat-Sen) dollars." 
    These are hefty to hold and can be quite 'dramatic' in appearance when the toning happens to be right. There's apparently one (or maybe two?) variations of the 1937; a minute speck under letter I on the reverse (a.k.a. the "dot variant").

    Yes, the photos of the mice were made with the standard lens 18-55 mm EOS 200 D. But I am happy to own also a Tokina AT-X PRO D 100 mm F 2.8 MACRO for pictures of small animals and close ups like the lunar opal silvercoin series ... 


    The old panasonic did  also a great job, so one of my favourit pictures are the 1kg lunar I 2000 silver dragon on the graveyard and the maria looking for
    one of the 240 rabbitcoins PP 1999...

    Strictly speaking more of 'this last month, or so, i received....' post!
    I've just got back from a nice sunny break in Lisbon where i 'stumbled' accross "Numismatica Diamantino" which had a pretty impressive collection of coins from throughout Portugal's currency history. I could've stayed there all day looking through the books of individual coins from decades gone by, but a glare from both my parents and girlfriend called a halt to proceedings (who i'd somehow managed to convince i was merely 'popping in' as we 'passed by' as it was definitely 'on the route'.......!)

    I couldn't get my grubby mitts on a Ponte Salazar (the other Lisbon bridge) whilst i was out there, but since ordered one from eBay to add to the collection. Coincidentally there were 10 for sale here yesterday, which completely blew my mind as i spent hours looking for the right one online for the right price and i could've had 10 from TSF if i was quick enough!
    Also received 6 of these fantastic 2019 1oz Royal Coat of Arms bullion coins from our very own @StackSellRepeat. I can't get enough of these. I see a tube of these coming on!

    My first 16 Britannia's kickstarting the 'My First Tube' accomplishment!

    2020 Royal Mint Lunar Rat. 

    And last but by no means least, 6 of the East India Trading Company trade dollars (2 x US, British & Chinese) courtesy of our own @Stackerads and SilverTrader; and 1 solitary Spade Guinea with thanks to @richatthecroft. 
    Not to everyone's taste for a 'presentation box coin' i know, but i find something very endearing with these coins (especially, of course, the Spade Guinea). I found myself wanting to pick them up when i first got them and thought a CoinGallery case would be the ideal answer to help scratch the silver itch! Looking forward to the Japanese and French dollars and perhaps another Guinea to fill the gaps!

    I went back to Leicester to visit the family home this weekend and went to the only coin shop I could find. Picked up some US half dollars for the stack. My uncle had finished a book on our family tree, he traced us in England back to 1727.  This has now made me want to collect British coins on key dates for the family members.  I bought my first crown, one of many to come.
