  1. Those silver coins are looking good.
  2. Coin related domain. CoinExpose.com the perfect domain for a coin user-based community http://www.namecheap.com/marketplace/for-s...asp?mp_id=39482 When you buy through Namecheap.com's Marketplace you get INSTANT TRANSFER.
  3. Why wouldn't sterling be worthwhile? People spend all day hunting for 40% Kennedy Half Dollars Not sure of the best place to buy. I hear good things about Kitco and they charge like $2.50 over spot but unsure about UK. Anyways it will go back down how far I'm not sure. It was in the low $16 range a few weeks ago and now stable at just under $18. I was going to buy a few bars at $16.27 but I was waiting for it to hit $15.50ish and it never did - lol.
  4. Yeah, my prank was pretty weak but it was 3am and i wanted to be the first Happy hunting.
  5. Edmund. C. Moy, director of the U.S. mint, released a press statement in regards to gold .900 Monroe dollars being released into circulation. Apparently, 219 of the "golden" dollars were accidentally shipped. The press release goes on to say "These coins are not legal tender. They are illegal to own and must - under law - be returned to the United States Mint." CHECK THOSE ROLLS! April Fools
  6. Pick up a coin off the sidewalk.. send it in to SGS and you'll have yourself an MS-70 lol.....they grade almost everything ms-70
  7. Not 100% sure yet but I've been reading up on specific gravity. Once I get a new digital scale that will be my method. Thanks again Satootoko for the info. 1987 doesn't have any silver in it. Did you mean 1967?..
  8. I've only searched one box of nickels at this point and found 1 wartime nickel. 6 boxes of dimes = 18 silver rossies and 5 silver canadian dimes 1 box of quarters = no silver 2 boxes of pennies = no silver
  9. 1952 = .800 1967 = n/a 1968 = .500 laid out on the table under a tissue. The brightest one is actually the 1968 do to the fact its BU. Edit - 1952 actually shows up a little dark due to the dirt on it. Tissue test isn't the greatest. Aluminum tends to glow white also.
  10. Thanks Satootoko. I've tried the tissue test already. I didn't really notice a difference in brightness ... however I'll try it again later on. Any other methods I'm opening to hearing them.
  11. 1967 has two compositions the .800 silver and the .500 silver. The 80% and 50% dimes weigh the same (2.33g) and the 80% and 50% quarters weigh the same (5.81g). So, how can you easily tell the difference. If the weights are the same. Anyone have some methods?
  12. I went back to that same coin shop today. Pulled out some sterling and .500 silver Great Britain coinage. $0.25/ea (or 5 for $1.00)... again $8.50 worth After I paid he told me he had some GB coins in a box in the back but they were all silver and selling at melt. So I ask to see them and look through them for a bit. Noticing some of the coins I just bought for $0.25 are in this "silver" box and at the same grade but for $5.00/ea I shake my head and tell him I'll come back soon lol
  13. Interesting poll. Personally, male - 23- serious relationship
  14. Thanks Christian! I was pretty close.. off by a few 10k
  15. I was hoping there was a free resource like there is with U.S. coinage. I wanted to know about the 1966 - 100 Pesetas (Spain). I found some information on one site in Spanish once translated there was a column named "Distance" which I think are the mintages. Maybe someone can confirm... 74,004,500 1966 *(19-66) - 15,000,000 1966 *(19-67) - 35,000,000 1966 *(19-68) - 24,000,000 1966 *(19-69) - 4,500
