    What do you think?

    I also picked-up this 1951 Australian Florin and a 1949 Southern Rhodesia 1/2 Crown. Both are UNC. The 1949 Southern Rhodesia piece is made after they converted from silver to copper-nickel. It is quite large (32 mm) and has George VI on the obverse with shield reverse.

    Please post some more photos people.

    Thanks for letting me share.

    [QUOTE=Collect89;11786 It is quite large (92 mm)

    My gosh, you could put that in the trunk of your car and use it for a spare! It was said that some people complained about the silver dollar being too big.

    That's a neat old 1/4 Real jello. I generally like the older pieces better rather than modern era coinage. Man, that really is small at 11mm.

    *but here an odd brass/copper coin 1972 w/weight+ grams stamp on it.

    Here are a few of my newest aquisitions. The first is 1 Drachma from GREECE (KINGDOM) dated 1832, issued under King: Otto/Othon Wittelsbach of Bavaria. The second is a silver wire Kopek from RUSSIA (NOVGOROD) dating from 1533-1547, issued under Grand Duke: Ivan Rurik IV~The Terrible. The third is a 5,000 Dinara from SERBIA (REPUBLIC) dated 2004, commemorating the 200th anniversary of the 'First Insurrection of Serbia'. Forth is 5 Yuan from CHINA (PEOPLES REPUBLIC) dated 2011, commemorating the 90th Anniversary of the Chinese Communist Party. Last is a 5,000 Ruble silk note from the KHWAREZM SOVIET PEOPLES REPUBLIC dated 1339 AH/1921 AD.

    Congrats zantetsuken, they're some nice pickups. I particularly like the Russian coin and the 5,000 Ruble silk. What history there is surrounding these two beautiful pieces.

    Thanks 'BRandM'. These areas do have a very long and interesting history behind them. History is one of the things that makes coin and banknote collecting so fun and rewarding.

    Haven't seen this one on this forum yet, so there you go. Needed it for a type set, been looking for quite some time until got it from eBay seller for significantly lower than melt price... God bless those clueless sellers. Seems to be in perfect condition, stains and scratches are on capsule plastic.

    10 ROUBLES 1977(l), 33.3000 g., 0.9000 Silver 0.9635 oz. ASW, 39 mm

    I couldn't agree more. That's a big part of the appeal of collecting for me as well.

    Sweet! I love the frosted tone on this one. I don't usually collect coins from Britain or her colonies, but they are interesting. Thanks for posting.

    Straits Settlements

    Beautiful Jello! My girlfriend/fiance is a Punjabi (Indian) girl from Malaysia, which is of course part of what used to be called the Straits Settlements, and I have loved coins from there even before I met her heh. I have a beautiful 1935 silver 5 cents, I hope to get some more high grade Straits Settlements coins eventually.... it is one of my favorite British Commonwealths to collect.

    Here is my 1935 Silver 5 cents, along with a Victorian 1891 10 Cents. The first three pics are all of the same coin. I also have a beauty 1941 Malaya 10 cents... but only room for 4 pics, and I don't feel like starting another post unless you guys want to see that and some other Straits Settlements coins.....
