    these bars are very nice
    for my money lady fortuna design blows away the dragon or whatever those other ones are
    though I know most of the younger crowd and maybe not so young crowd here would disagree
    but what do they know they love aminal silver
    Silver is silver as oppossed to claims that state otherwise.
    I do prefer what I feel qualifies as Premium silver

    nice i agree pamps...oh yeah!!!.....but fairly common....the beauty in their designs, is there in art form by all means...i like and took his thread, to me anyway as MEANING and what it means to one who owns a fav for meaning of its obverse or reverse stamping in words, phrases, and such...

    hey that is just me... much is just bullion with no meaning "of design", no personal meaning of what is written on the coin...to some it may be "in God we trust", others? something else... i know the op wanted all fav, prettiest, significant... i took it as what serves as good meaning ... that is where my posting of the Palau coin came into play... it has meaning to me, deep meaning to me in design and my personal life, and ofr that matter anyone may feel the same way...

    The coolest part is that any one can post anything here they want as I pretty much covered all the bases :P Basically this is like a silver porn show with color commentary

    I started stacking in the Summer of 2011... For a long, long, time I only stacked half dollars and then one day my regular dealer offered me an eagle at spot as he had become chummy with me buying so many half dollars (i still think HDs are the best btw) and I believe he was trying to get me hooked on something more expensive. Anyway I took it at spot and fell in LOVE! I have been stacking ASEs with my HDs ever since. I own some solid numis but NOTHING gets me so excited like an ASE. The first one he gave me I molested and rang like a champ. They are so perfect! Ive been stacking only ASEs and HDs ever since ....

    ASEs are the best. Period!

    Well, it's much prettier than any of the generic 10 ounce bars I've bought. The craftsmanship is superb. There's just something about holding a 10 ounce silver coin in your hand that makes your undies damp.

    History? It's silver and made in Australia.

They called it shell-shock back then. War is never a minor event. And for some, it is life altering. A quarter is just a quarter. I hope I run across one for you.
    That would be cool, Thanks

    It is very touching that this little thread ::sob:: started by me :: sob:: has brought two people in this cold dark world together :: uncontrollable blubbering::

    Spaceman good luck on the 41 .. it is a common date you could get one from each mint just for fun... maybe in Mint condition if you really wanted to go crazy with it...

    I think these will be my favorite modern rounds, once they get made later this year. All 7 "Liberties" share the same Eagle reverse (shown lower right).
    These are newly-refined designs that have been minted in various forms in the past. This time, they will be silver bullion rounds.



    Shown above are computer renderings of the designs. Below are pictures of actual rounds minted using previous versions:

    50mm 2-troy-oz, with hologram border (hologram is formed by sub-microscopic ridges in the pure silver surface - no polymer coating or film):


    39mm 1-troy-oz "Trade Dollar" concept:


    And one last modern favorite:

    ^^^ Moonlight Mint makes some pretty interesting rounds. I just wish they weren't so expensive.

    I remember when they first came out with the Amero. A good buddy of mine who is quite the conspiracy theorist went nuts over it. Before he realized it was a private mint he was sure that we were about to have a bank holiday and the dollar was dead! (It reminds me of the War of the Worlds broadcast. He had about the same reaction as the public did back then...)

    Check this one out... pretty funny
