    Sure does - the 1987, 1988, 1992 and 1994 Cook Islands sets are almost all the same (the only difference besides the years being the new obverse on 1992 and 1994 50t pieces).

    A couple new patterns. Very happy to have found examples of these, as both have a mintage of 10 pieces. Typically 4 are reserved for the national collection, leaving 6 available for private collectors, out of which I have only seen 2 examples of each hit auction. This was my third attempt at securing one of the 100 forint pattern examples.

    The coin changed planchet composition from brass-plated steel/nickel-plated steel to copper-nickel-zinc/copper-nickel-zinc in 2019. I also have a couple examples of a vending trial of this coin, dated 2018.

    My first purchase of 2021! This new farthing is a marked improvement over the PCGS MS-64 piece that had previously resided in my collection. Currently, it is tied with two others for the finest graded at NGC.

    As someone who collects by date, it can sometimes be hard to find later dates of certain types of coins, especially lower-value ones that end up being rendered useless by inflation. The pre-euro Austrian 2 groschen is one of these. Most type collectors will probably go for a 1952 or 1954, and most of the coins you see in bulk lots will probably be from between 1952 and 1966. I was lucky to be flipping through ebay auctions the other night and noticed a small lot of them with a couple 1980s dates shown in the image. I won the lot and was happy to find 7 dates I needed for my collection out of 17 coins in the lot. At $3 for the lot, it was a little bit more than bulk value but still a price I was happy with.

    I don't buy many coins from eBay anymore but here's two I just picked up. I've wanted one of these Barbados pennies for awhile, and I had to get the leopard after another member here posted he was thinking of getting one. I don't know if he did but I went for it. 1788 barbados 1 penny.jpg 2017 ghana 5 cedis leopard.jpg

    Awesome, I love that Barbados coin! I still want one of those too. A lot of the old Caribbean coins are very nice. Counterstamped, bits and pieces (literally), so much history there. Like St Eustatius, a tiny little rock next to St Maarten, alone has several really amazing bits and tokens and coins, and you can really learn about the significance of each island just by learning a bit more about the coins. That's why coins are so awesome IMO.

    A bit more than that, but I like to think of it as an investment that will one day at least break even (fingers crossed) :)
