    I think them Tokelau coins are ok, but they have to much field in them. for the cheap price some generics have better artwork. if they were cheaper i would buy one though. I see these things everywhere. price is to high for me to consider buying. I think they have a horse also. I could be wrong. These interest be about as much as those crocodile's. bland. The perth animal coins are way better to me. The few i have look real sweet to me. I'm starting to think that many of this newer stuff is made to the chasers cause they know they will waste the money on anything. just my opinion.

    I like them older German States coins. The work on the eagles are very nice. I price them, but I dont own any. I like the eagle art on older russia stuff. That double eagle design is great. I have some of that. Real crazy cool if you get it higher grade coins. They look real smooth. I always keep an eye out on that stuff. I'd love to get a few more pieces. Good solid old foreign numi to collect. my opinion.

    She likes to keep thing somber and professional Although in that pose she looks a bit like a man with a perm... I must agree, as usually the reverse is the best part of this coin haha.

    I like the fish. Maybe because I like fish in general. Yeah, there are a lot of Tokelau coins with animals, the whole lunar thing going on (don't like the idea of every stinking mint trying to jump in on this, btw). At least the tuna image is relevant to the country. I don't think the price was obscenely inflated (at least last week it wasn't), so I picked up a couple. I don't mind a little bit of field as long as the fish jumps out nicely!
