    Here's a new one for my bear collection that just came today. It's ultra high relief and the bear really sticks up above the surface of the coin. As a side note, how long are they going to keep putting the queen on coins? She's been dead for a year now. 2023 canada 20 dollars grizzly.jpg

    I just received this 1852 10 reis from Madeira, a Portuguese island in the Atlantic. I was excited when I found out this exists because I have a special interest in coins from obscure places. These were only made for two years and are hard to come by. 1852 madeira 10 reis.jpg

    Here's a rare one after 6 years researching I hit a brick wall . No data anywhere on any of the Australian Variety sites . Unlisted 1922 Silver Threepence Doubled Die Reverse. I would guess its prob going to command a fair premium knowing how the Aussies love their varieties :D just a couple of extras to show where the DDR is 1922.3penceDD.reversep2.jpg 1922.3penceDD.obversep2.jpg 1922DDR1.jpg 1922DDr3.jpg

    Not exactly junk bin purchase but pretty close that ended up being more interesting than I expected



    1648 ITALY - NAPLES - ROYAL REPUBLIC OF NAPLES, 1647-1648 - Pubblica or 3 Tornesi GAC-Z

    obv. Crowned ornate shield with SPQN in horizontal band across center


    rev. Three wheatstalks and olivebranch tied together, GAC above, Z below


    On the 7th of July 1647 a revolt started against the rule of Habsburg in Naples. This revolt was lead by the fisherman Tommaso Aniello, also called ″Masaniello″. He was elected as ″captain-generale″, with support of the Maffia. On 16th July 1647 he was assassininated by a groop of grain merchants. A second revolt took place in Augst 1647, which lead to the proclamation of the ″The Royal Republic of Naples″ . under French Protection, in person of Henri II de Lorraine, 5th Duke of Guise. He called himself ″Doge″ of Naples, in imitation of Venice. He was not very successful as ruler of Naples. The Spanish eventually recovered Naples in April 1648, and Henri was captured and held by them until 1652.

    These are always poorly struck. The design quality of this piece is rather crude, and the SPQN is NOT aligned properly... letters are sideways. Usually they are straight. Probably made toward the end of the siege of the Republic by Spain.

    The Neapolitan Republic was a Republic created in Naples, which lasted from 22 October 1647 to 5 April 1648. It began after the revolt led by Masaniello and Giulio Genoino against the Spanish viceroys.
    The leader of the Republic was Henry II of Lorraine, duke of Guise, descendant of the former king of Naples Rene I of Anjou. The Republic had the following official names: Serenissima Repubblica di questo regno di Napoli ("Most Serene Republic of this Kingdom of Naples"), Reale Repubblica ("Royal Republic"), and Serenissima Monarchia repubblicana di Napoli ("Most Serene Republican Monarchy of Naples"). All indicated the double nature of the Republic, both republican and monarchical, and "Serenissima" was a purposeful comparison with the famous Italian maritime republic with the same title, Venice. The coat of arms was a red shield with the motto S.P.Q.N., in imitation of the well-known S.P.Q.R., the initialism of the Latin phrase, Senatus Populusque Romanus ("The Senate and the People of Rome"), Thus, the Neapolitan phrase meant "The Senate and People of Naples." The coat of arms contained the crest of the duke of Guise.

    The most I’ve ever paid for a modern commemorative, just purchased at a coin shop in Tokyo. Fiftieth anniversary of the first Shinkansen (bullet train), Heisei 26 (2014).
