Nice!

I am now the proud owner of a Stockmen's $10 Gaming Token:

I happened upon an ebay auction with (2) 2014 Philharmonics and this gaming token for 37.99 with free shipping. The center of this token is .6 oz of 999 silver and the outside ring is brass. The one I got is the 1995 version seen here:

Considering spot on these coins today is 38.51, I figured what the heck.

Edit: By the way Hammer, I splurged $14.06 today on a 2014 1/2 oz Libertad. 23,000 mintage

LOL Boswell

That was just what I needed to hear. I did not buy the monuments set. Something seemed weird and I just could not put my finger on it. Thanks for waking me up.

Nice one ag. It is always fun with libs as they are such effortlessly beautiful coins.

Lol. Is not that what makes them particularly odd and collectible ?

Silver Eagles

My man still has no stocks of 1oz libety's , are there any coming online yet in USA ? I ordered some silver 2016 Somali Elephants along with a couple of Koala's and a mob of Kangaroo's and some 2014 Maples that were lower price than current issues. Cant seem to justify collectable coins but the way the elephants and Koalas perform as an investment , probably cant go wrong. Keepon stackon.

Burnundi Lion

$18 for three lions what a bargain . Three heads and no tails,

what a coin.

They will look great in any collection.

1 ounce ingot with COA

I got one of these New Millennium Group 1 ounce, proof, ingots for $20. It has a velvet-covered case and comes with a COA. The ingots are numbered on the side of the bar. Mine is ingot # 08398. I can't locate the mintage number but after looking around at half a dozen pics, the highest ingot number I saw was in the 66,ooo's. So maybe 100,000 or so seems reasonable, but I don't know for sure. There's a nicely detailed eagle on the reverse.

And Wy So Lo, yeah I like the lions too :)

Really like the look of this new kookaburra. Detail in the grass, wood grain, barbed wire, bird...think I might spring for the 10 oz version.

Have you any first hand knowledge about the collectability of the, 10 oz compared to the 1 oz in the kooks or koalas ?

I don't. The only thing I saw was that mintage on the 1oz is capped to I think it was 500,000. Mintage on the 10oz and kilo was uncapped. In practice, I'd think mintage is substantially lower than the 1 oz, but it just said uncapped.

Thanks I R B T

As my pure low premium stacking days come to an end i will want to get into the semi numi's more than i currently am. I have a fair amount of koalas starting around 2010 and similar in kookaburras and am thinking of doing a rotational setup where i buy current and sell older, using the profit to add to my volume. I bought some bars for my SHTF stash and will keep them , but i want my continued interest to pay for it self. That is why i asked the question.

2015 Britannia

Looks like the silver proof available in 1 and 5 oz. The other is the regular BU bullion coin.

Seems like the new circulation 2 GBP coin is also using this image.
