Macmercury - Just the generic portrait of Queen Elizabeth II as on all of the circulating coins of Australia.

That coin also appeared in 2022 Uncirculated sets.

However the one above is one of the first in circulation.
Loving Halfcrowns. British and Commonwealth coins 1750 - 1950 and anything Kiwi.
If it's round, shiny and silvery I will love it.

One more hole filled! Four more to go (well- two common ones also). Taking my time looking for good buys.

One reason I love slabs...some people are not willing to trust themselves to identify a legitimate coin. So better coins can be found for lower prices when unslabbed!

This one was raw on ebay and unlike some slabbed ones I saw selling for up to 120.00, this 76.00 beauty has a full date and rims.

Yes, she has a stain in the lower right...but her date is all there and I do not believe I find another in this condition for under 100.00 any time soon!

The last pic is of the photo setup I used to take these exact pictures. In fact in the setup, if you look on the screen, you see the REV pic that was cropped and posted here in this thread.

Very nice buy on that coin. (clever set-up for picture taking) Hopefully some of the newer folks that have issues taking pictures will see this and emulate it.

Thanks - but originally the basis of the idea for this type of thing was from member Darth Morgan many years ago. I do not even know if ring lights were known/popular back then, and he used some gooseneck Ikea LED lamps.

Purchased these recently for just over bullion price. Austrian 1888 Florin is nice and toned. The Philippines peso is crusty but the spotted toning is kinda cool. I read up on the history of these pesos and how they were dumped into Manilla harbor and subsequently gathered up by divers in WW2. Very interesting!
