Thread: Opinion? The Queen on a coins obverse

    Default Opinion? The Queen on a coins obverse

    The queen is depicted on a significant percentage of government minted coins. Cant say that I am a big fan, especially the newer maple leafs. The reverse of many numismatic issues have beautiful artwork depicted, however I am always hesitant because the flipside portrays the bust of her majesty. Would like to see more gov. Issued coins with both obverse and reverse themes; the bust noticeably toned down or absent.

    As long as they remain gold or silver I don't care who or what is stamped on the coins. I'm acquiring metal, not art.

    Sadly goes to show how many countries are British colonies, perfectly great way to ruin a good coin.

    Been looking at private mints but have not yet purchased. Main reason being gov issues are more recognizable upon resale. Of course bullion bars like sunshine mint would be the next choice but resale value is entirely based on spot price, no good if you expect a steep drop off from comex.

    They passed a noble law
    Now the trees are all kept equal
    By hatchet, axe and saw.

    I will not comply.

    I think they plan on using that picture on the three dollar bill.

    I second that. I'll probably keep away from commonwealth bullion, consider it like "corona", and only get at considerably lower price than other bullion. No matter, coins are not the way to go these days anyway, nothing wrong with bricks....

    A half cent might be more fitting.

    This is no longer posted in the Fed Minutes of January 2008, but still quoted here - https://www.nbcnews.com/id/wbna22592939. The FOMC minutes still quote MR. Reifschneider. as stating the same thing.
