My new British coin

Coins-World | Speeding Arrow

Yesterday I received a package containing a new coin I order. This coin was meant to represent the changing of the face of the obverse from Queen Elizabeth the 2nd to King Charles the 3rd. A new coin will be coming with Charles on the obverse. It is made of 1oz of fine silver and has a face value of 2 pounds. It also has a diameter of 38.61mm. These coins could easily be part of anyone's collection. Thanks to the Royal British Mint for some of the information. Some extra news is that I will be going to the national battlefield coin show on Saturday from 9-11 am. I will be taking a water bottle with a sticker from the ANA to show I am from there. Please attend this show if you can it is amazing and most of us are going. See you there!

Ever since I bought that 8 Real Mexican coin that is holed, I have been on the lookout for another holed coin. I have no idea why but they seem to speak to me. Someone likely put a hole in the coin to hang it around their neck for safe keeping. Now that is some history. While looking at some coins online I ran into this one and couldn't resist it

Things Which Boggle the Mind

Coins-World | Long Beard

Something had occurred to me as I pondered on a subject for the weekly blog. The topic of rarity and famous collectors for some reason sticking on my mind, the very same things which I've written of in the past. Thinking of these, one simple yet overlooked aspect escaped me, and likely most of those who collect coinage. When we think of any on the long list of famous collectors and the coins they've had in their possession we instantly think of those such as the 1804 dollar, 1894s Barber dime, 1913 Liberty nickel or any number of rarities struck by the United States Mint. However, if we look further into these individuals it becomes no stretch of imagination that they collected coinage from various countries other than just the United States. So the subject of this weeks blog is rare world coinage. Examples which are on par with the famous U.S. issues, struck under similar circumstances and holding equal history. Enjoy!

If you were around in the 70's and 80's, like I was, the South Africa Gold Krugerrand was all the rage. If one was trying to be cool one NEEDED it. If you were really cool you wore it on a chain around your neck to the disco. I wasn't cool, surprise. However I did admire the coin. The color of the gold was and still is very unique. It has a more orange color than most gold coins. I never bought one. I didn't have the money back then. When I did get enough money for some gold coins I went with Canadian Maple Leafs'. A more pure gold mixture at the time was in the Canadian.

**Mexico Type Set**...Page 4

Coins-World | Kepi

Hi Fellow Numi's! Drum roll please... Here it is! The final page in Longstriders and mine "Mexico Type Set" Dansco Album! Here we have coins from 1951-1968. It includes $5 Pesos, $10 Pesos, a 1949 UNA ONZA, 1 Oz. pure silver and a $25 1968 Olympic Games. This last coin in the album was special because it came out of my Grandpas coin collection. These are all some big, heavy silver coins... Really cool to collect! I must say though we did start to get a bit confused in searching for these coins with all the different Presidents... They all began to look alike! haha It was like "Do we have this one already?" "Oh no, We bought the same coin?" "Who are all these dudes!" "Is this the same dude?"... Crazy! All joking aside I will say this was the BEST album in the world to collect! Thanks for the memories Longstrider! Now onto our next adventure! Maybe that old "Mexico Liberty Cap Peso" Album!Thanks for reading my blog. Comments are always welcomed!
