If money were no object...

I would build a second PCGS Ike set (which would be the third Ike set) and aim for the top of the registry.

Then I would do the same for the 7070.

If have not run out of funds yet, I would work my way through my Dansco collection, building a second set in PCGS.

Of course, the first thing I should do it fill the last six holes in my Dansco albums.

A gem pair of 1915 Panama-Pacific International Expositions $50 commemorative gold coins would be my "money is no object" target.

I got to hold a raw pair in my hands years back while on a tour within the Smithsonian's vault with the museum's curator - it was a great collecting experience and one I won't ever forget!

I have actually had a Pan Pac $50 pair sitting in the palms of my hands (both) at a major public auction view day.

I have examined rarer and more valuable coins, but they are museum pieces, almost from the day they were struck. Have never been available to obtain, irrespective of money being no object.

Is there a limit to how much here?
(Values are in New Zealand dollars worth 59 US cents)

First of all I would buy a Waitangi Crown (Very rare figure $4k for a VF one and $10k for a Proof UNC one ).

Next I would upgrade my entire NZ collection to AU for coins over $1000 and UNC/BU for those under it.

Next I would grind away at the UK buying all the Halfcrowns I could in the best possible condition, trying to get a complete run from 1544 to 1970.

Next I would do all the same for British coins from Fractional farthings to Crowns at least from 1662 onwards.

I am not that interested in Medieval and older or Gold coins (Gold coins are nightmare to store and insure)

Finally I would do the same for Australia, Canada and Fiji.

Dependent on money I had I would spend.

Clear Funds (Amount to spend on coins)

$10k ($1k half my credit card debt - whoopty doo!)

$100k ($30k - Have debts like Student loan and Mortgage to clear first)

$250k ($100k - the rest would make solvent and them some)

$1 million ($300k - Would like some work done on body, new car, better home and a world trip post Corona)

$5 million ($2 mil - once I have all the essentials , the rest is mine to invest)

$50 million ($5 - 10 mil, rest would go in investments and I would be doing philantrophic stuff in the ghettos)

$100 million or more - (10 - 20% of whatever total was, although surely by $10 million on coins, I would have every single coin I needed and a mansion to store them in, with 24/7 guard security!)



Loving Halfcrowns. British and Commonwealth coins 1750 - 1950 and anything Kiwi.
If it's round, shiny and silvery I will love it.
