**Mini Roo**

Coins-World | Kepi

Hey everyone! Here's a 2021-P Australian Gold Kangaroo! Well, a "Mini Roo"! A little guy... 0.5 grams of .9999 gold with a diameter of 11.60 mm. This little coin is a GEM Proof and came encapsulated in an wallet-sized card with kangaroo graphics and Specification information. The obverse shows Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth ll wearing the Royal Diamond Diadem. The designer of this coin, Jody Clark has been a sculptor for the Royal Mint of Great Britain since 2012. The reverse shows the iconic kangaroo in a crouched position with inscriptions of the gold weight and the "P" Mint mark of the Perth Mint.This popular kangaroo design began to appear in 1989 and has been a hit with collectors every since! Many thanks for reading my blog! Comments are always welcome. ; )

Colorized Coins

Coins | thatcoinguy

Colorized coins have been the subject of many heated debates amongst numismatists. They were once just novelties made by third parties who though the ATB quarters would looked cooler if somebody knocked a paint can on top of them (roll searchers know what I mean). But in more recent times, many mints from across the world (and even the US mint) have made colorized coins for sale to collectors, and in some cases, for circulation.

As our hobby grows more and more diverse, collecting interests have gotten broader and broader (which is not necessarily a bad thing!). Collecting interests have grown put to feature old Whitman blue folders, numismatic literature, thelowestgrade coins (a subject of a future blog!)... the list goes on and on. One section that has seen particular activity has been the collecting of slabs. Yes, some people collect slabs. Here's one of the coolest kinds of slabs (in my opinion), and one of the most highly collected.

Taps Across America

Coins | Mike

We all know what today is. Its Memorial Day. It used to be called Decoration Day. A day to remember all those who gave there lives so we can have our freedom. This will be short I'm still recovering. But to think of all those who lost there lives in all our wars is just to much to remember. I can't tell you that number. But we know its very large I usually put up a blog with most of my military coins but the search would take to long. A few years ago someone came up with this idea of playing taps across this great country. Now were ever Americans live they play taps. What ever country. Were I live we have the oldest parade on record. Its also fleet week here in New York All sorts of ships arrived here during the week. So please remember those who's families lost there loved ones. And families that were lost. We have been forgetting these brave men and we shouldn't. But I do see more people coming out going to the Forts in there area. Ours is Fort Hamilton and Fort Wandsworth. Both are on each side of the entrance of the Harbour. So please come out and say thanks. If you play an instrument play taps. Believe me those who are gone will hear it. Thanks And God Bless The United States Of America. And keep those still in service your support they appreciate it!!

Needing Assistance

| user_39492

Hi all, I've posted this coin with a group of others from my grandfather's collection he left to me and I've found and researched many of them, but this particular coin I just can't seem to find any information about. If there's anyone who can help me to pinpoint the region of this coin and the background it would be very appreciated. Thanks again to all and thank to the Armed Forces for your service.

**Man's Best Friend**

Coins-World | Kepi

Hi everyone! I just received a new coin that I added to my collection and wanted to share it with you. This is a 2022 Fiji Dogs 1 oz Silver $0.50 coin as a GEM BU. In the Republic of Fiji this coin is considered to be legal tender for one-half dollar. The coin is .999 fine silver and measures 40 mm in diameter. Limited mintage of 12,000 pieces. The obverse shows the Coat of Arms of the Republic of Fiji. Now being a "dog person", I love the reverse of this coin! Whats not to love about a big ol' happy dog running towards you in anticipation of a sloppy wet kiss. This is the first coin in the series "Fiji Dogs". Each release of the series will focus on a different dog breed, celebrating a diversity of body shapes and character traits. I can't wait to see next years design and add it to my collection! Thanks for reading my blog! Comments are always welcome. ; )
