    Pretty interesting stuff. From the link, I'm kind of partial to the 3 3/4oz Na, item 258734. $550.00 for a Tai relic from the 1500's...not bad. Would make a great conversation piece in my display cab

    Indeed... I bought some Indonesian folk art for my China hutches at the house, if the wife will allow ha-ha.

    The best silver of all is the silver in hand...( yours or those you gift it to)

    These came in today ( just the coins)
    My scale is packed for the move so... Wi have to weigh them later. They feel real by my hand and eye.

    What are the thoughts on 10oz. Australian coins (i.e. Year of the Goat, Kookaburra)? On the bay for about $2.00 over spot/ounce. Picked up one of each for the hell of it.

    I think they look great, but the only reason i have not bought any is because i believe there is an unlimited mintage on them.

    I figure any government mintage at $2.00 over spot is a fair deal. This are at least different to look at

    Unlimited yes, although the declared mintages for the 2013 Year Of Snake are 28,213. 2014 Year Of Horse 29,983 . Of course we have to wait awhile for 2015 mintage #s.

    At best, I consider them "semi-numi's." Because of their large size, I don't think there is that much collector interest. Just not a convenient size for an album, etc. I would be very happy to get my premium back at time of selling (with spot price appreciation of course).
