I am really fond of South-East Asia culture and architecture. This year the Tiffany Art Serie has highligted Angkor Wat and the Khmer style. I didn't  know this serie before and I decided to order this release. This is a real shock as I have never seen such a beautiful coin, way way way above everything I have seen. Thanks to the the "Smartminting" technologie, we are able to get this incredible level of details and reliefs.

I have tried my best to highlight the coin and the details, but it was really chalenging as it was not with a macro lens ;  I had to shoot in low light to get what I wanted. With this low light, I need a large aperture (that softened the details, and narrowed  the depth of field), and higher iso to get a decent speed but creates noise...

I have managed to get some macros with my phone and a special macro lens, the pictures are not good, but you can see the incredible level of details, all in a 5 cm diameter. 

I am hooked by this piece of art and I am pleased to share it with you. I will definitely not flip it ! Grab it at the "low price" while you can if you are interested ...it really worths it

Ok, this is not a forum about photography technics so enjoy ☺️

Lovely mix of fractionals, but super happy with the 1/4 Onza and the SA 1R both of which have been on my list for ages, both low mintage coins. 

Got the roo and the panda at spot so happy with that result too.

This piece is indeed remarkable in its medal like depth and detail. Not less remarkable the is the disappearance of the culture that created the temple complex and how it has survived millennia in the jungle climate. Or was this temple city in use more recent than his story ans want us to believe...

I love detailed art, one reason I love deep relief carving and coins...but when you can have as mu h fun looking at a coin through a microscope because it's so detailed...that makes it extra nice.

I have a sweet capped bust one cent 1830 I believe which has a small nick on it, doesn't bother me but some anal annie's get all bunched up about it.

I am not too fussed - I dont buy many pieces as numismatic items - the 1/4 onza and the 1R were ones I was happy to pay over the odds - even then I got them way cheaper than market value. The nick kills most the premium on the roo, but as I got it at spot no bother :P

What’s in the blue box?..looks like an open packet of prophylactics!!

the coin was wrapped in kitchen roll, and wedged into a round plastic container with another bit of kitchen roll. this was put into the blue box which used to hold paperclips, this box was sellotaped into the big box and surrounded with more kitchen roll, the box was then covered in what must have been a full roll of sellotape, and then that box was put in a big plastic postage bag.

Well I can't say that this 1/2 sov from eBay wasn't well packaged. :)

IMG_20190612_181616.jpg

I have had sovereigns sent to me literally taped to the inside of the envelope...literally...and no insurance...not from a dealer but still...also had a shoe box sized package with all sorts of stuff inside for a 1 oz silver coin...some people just don't read the memo.

My first none one ounce and none Sovereign coins. I will still focus on Sovereigns and only buy the odd other coin and here with a focus on central Europe.

I have a soft spot for Austrian coins, both gold and silver, and after sovs, they are the coins I look for.

Always a lengthy process getting stuff from the states, but excellent communication throughout and fantastic packaging.
