    Stopped by the LCS to buy a $3 Indian Princess I had him set aside for me, when he showed me a coin that he had just bought an hour before and that doesn't come thru his shop very often.  I was first person to see it and It was love at first sight.  Big, chunky and lots of history.  Oldest coin I own and my new favorite.

    Also picked up an 1880 Young Head sov to get over the purchase amount needed here in California for exemption from sales tax.

    Gold ( including silver & platinum ) is a commodity, no different than coffee beans and is known as "high risk" in the investment world.
    Only when you have a stable portfolio, ISAs and pension funds should you enter this market and if you do, try to keep you metals at no more than 20% of your other investments.
    As a hobby, buy a few sovereigns or other gold coins when you have the spare cash.
    When you get hold of your first sovereign for say £240, or tenth ounce Britannia for £100 and see how small the coin(s) is / are it you might start to wonder ....
    You might prefer to start with silver - but know where to buy to avoid the 20% VAT so read the 100's of comments on this forum.
    For the price of a full sovereign you can get hold of about 15 full ounce silver coins like Maples, Britannias, Eagles, Elephants etc.
    You get a lot more weight and larger coins in silver and as silver appears artificially low in price right now there is more potential upside.
    As a hobby, try both but ALWAYS do your homework before buying.

    1943 Mexico 50 Pesos.  This is my second one.  I love the hefty feeling of these when you hold them.

    Another haul of silver - some nice condition vintage Libertad BU from 2002 and 2005, a tube of Oriental Border Britannias, more Kooks and Krugs, a Panda and some slabbed QBs, and a few more QB 1/4 gold BUs. Also trying to upgrade the quality of my Morgans - so I am pleased with this 1904 O Morgan.  Always looking for MS 70 candidates in that bunch (i found some ! ).  Others got the typical scratches on the QEII face...
