What I admire in the coins you show here is that you stop neither at such gold enormities as the one above, nor at tiny coppers. This is part of the art of collecting: it's the coin that counts, not its price. Your taste decides, not the grade of the coin. That makes each collection as unique as each human.

Thanks Peter. You won't believe it but sometimes it is tiny coppers vs its more expensive gold/silver counterparts that give me greater joy. To each his own........I collect what I like.
