Today I would like to share a unique auction win that just about finishes off my tax refund splurge. I have some difficulty in getting info on this coin but I will do my best. Below are the photos of my new 2013 New Zealand $1. It is part of New Zealand's tribute to Maori art in the form of a Koru. I am going to touch lightly on the significance of this legend in the Maori religion. It is very rich and I recommend anyone interested to research it further. This coin represents the Koru as the unfurling of the silver fern fond. The Koru is a symbol used to represent creation and an ever changing life that somehow remains the same. The Tane-Mahuta, also shown on the reverse, is the god of man forests. Creating the world of light. I apologize to any mistakes I wrote here. The obverse of the coin depicts Queen Elizabeth II surrounded by here name and the date and "NEW ZEALAND'. The specs of this coin are as follows. It is one troy ounce of .999 fine silver. It is about the same diameter of a Morgan Dollar, 38 mm.. The mintage was only 2000 pieces. This particular coin is a beautiful PF 69 ULTRA CAMEO. NGC has only graded three of these coins. One higher and one lower than mine. With such a low mintage I feel lucky to have won it. Personally I never saw one before and enjoy gazing into all the patterns of curls and swirls. Thanks for looking. Please feel free to comment.

** Now That's One Big Eye!**

Coins-United States | Kepi

I love these big 5 oz. Silver coins! Otherwise known as "Hockey Pucks" because of their similar sizes. This one is "American The Beautiful" 2013-P Mount Rushmore design. The series was made in conjunction with the "America The Beautiful" Quarters. The Mint produced these companion pieces in bullion in five different designs of either historic or natural significance each year from 2010 through 2021. These bullion coins are nearly identical to their smaller counterparts except for the 5 oz. weight, a 3 inch diameter, and the edge is stamped with .999 Fine Silver/5.0 ounce. The U.S. Mint produces all these coins in bullion and numismatic versions. The bullion version has a brilliant Uncirculated finish and does not have the "P" mintmark. It is only sold through dealers. The numismatic version, with the mintmark has a "Burnished" or matte finish. These coins are designated Specimens (SP) by grading companies and are sold directly to the public. This series has become very popular with collectors! I really like mine as it is graded PCGS SP70 First Strike and because John M. Mercanti, one of our past U.S. Mint Chief Engraver signed it. I hope you enjoyed my blog! I appreciate your comments! : )

**$20.00 for $20.00**

Coins-World | Kepi

I wanted to share this cool little coin with you! It's from the Royal Canadian Mint who has a great program called $20.00 for $20.00. The one I really liked is this 2013 Canadian Wolf. Struck in 99.99% fine silver with a worldwide mintage of 250,000. It has a serrated edge, weight of 7.96 g. and diameter of 27 mm. The obverse was designed by Susanna Blunt and features Queen Elizabeth II. The reverse shows a frontal view of a wolf running through the barren wilderness. The designer is Glen Loates. The face value is $20.00...and the cost of this coin is $20.00. Pretty cool huh!!! So next time you have an extra $20 bucks, think about these cool little coins! Thanks for looking at my blog. I look forward to your comments.
