My pleasure Laurie! The Niue Turtle 1$ comes in at 1/2oz silver and 33mm diameter, and the Silver Britannia is very slightly wider than an Eisenhower, and considerably thicker at 1oz silver. I also like the Australian lunar series, at 1/2oz and 36mm diameter:

Depending on angles, necessary slights, and how valiant I'm feeling, I tend to use one of the three sizes. I have nice contrast coins in 31mm and 40mm. Anybody know of any nice 36mm ones?

Tyler, nice hobo coins your friend has! Keep up the great work with CMU, I love your videos! Don't worry about scorpion criticisms, as far as animal welfare is concerned.. anybody who drives a car, or eats meat, or eats plants grown in what used to be jungle can hardly complain IMHO..

Here's a link to the Perth mint with more of the Australian lunar series- some very pretty ones there, indeed, thank you for those, Invisticone. Smile

The Northwest Territorial Mint has art medals at 38.1mm. I have several of these. I'll keep an eye out for 36mm, too.

Here's a link to the 38mms:

One that caught my eye at the Perth Mint linked above:

Thanks! Some interesting contrast coins to consider...

I don't know why the images on my last post are messed up... I'll try another:

Is that the Black Pearl? Smile I like that ship's wheel, but though I'm a pirate, I'm not that keen on skulls, at least at the moment. I really like galleons and some of the other tall ships. Very cool. I have a few small coins with similar boats depicted and my Mom has a very cool one in her coin collection, as well. I might go looking for more of these. Smile

This gets me thinking, too, about model boats, which reminds me of Bill Barker and perhaps again about Dick Proenneke

I have some of these half pennies, I'll have to check which dates. I might have some pics around. Maybe I'll post some photos of the ship coins I have. I think I have a pic of Mom's cool coin, too- I think it's dime sized if I remember correctly, but very cool nonetheless.

Hey Magicalaurie, wonderful thread! I've always loved beautiful coins, medals etc. and you have some gorgeous examples here. Nothing I own comes close.

Btw, what part of the country do you call home ? I'm on PEI.

Cheers

I've recently been looking for a bear coin to add to a set I'm working on. Effects include: spellbound, and David Roth's "The Table" with Canadian nickels. If you know me, you know I love animals and nature, so maybe you can do the math on that. Or, just follow the link in my signature- it'll fill in some blanks for you. Here's the beautiful bear coin I found after a fair bit of searching:

I received my bear coin in the mail from Israel today and it is as beautiful as the photo! lovely work!
