    Hi Fullmoonkid,

    PiVi is, as usual, quite right. The silver Maple Leaf coins are made of a slightly purer silver.

    I'm less sure about this. I thought that the Silver Eagle had a gross weight of one ounce; in other words that the coin contained 0.999 ounces of fine silver.

    I know the silver eagles are wider than the maples, but I don't know if that means that it contains 1 oz of silver or 1 oz total of .999 silver + .001 copper

    Hi Cecil,

    Wow, this guy has a glorious selection - the best I've seen. Now all I've got to do is figure out how to pay for a bunch of his stuff.

    I've got the ASE set and the Maple Leafs and am working on the other big sets - Pandas, Libertads, Britannias, Kooks, etc.

    I was fortunate to find a dealer by my grandkids that has a great selection of silver crowns. And this is how I blend Collecting with Hoarding Bullion - I have my stash of bullion in various forms - rounds and ingots, rolls of eagles, etc. Yet I have the modern bullion coins and am working on each of their sets. AND for historical purposes, I have started a collection of silver crowns. For example, I bought a Pillar Dollar and for my grand kids it's a history lesson all by itself.

    Anyway, thanks for the great link.

    I looked at the booklet that came with my ASE, it says .999 oz of silver, so that's settled
