Hi everyone, I just renewed my membership a few days ago and I also got the new red book with it. Today I will be talking about my vacation and a new coin I purchased.Right now I am on Spring Break so my family and I decided to go on vacation to Maryland. We are visiting many places and staying at a friends house. We have been to Mount Vernon, District Of Colombia, White House, etc. I also saw the U.S. treasury. I also finally learned how to fish. I have never fished in my life so it was a great experience. I caught a bunch of sunfish and almost caught a trout. I plan on going fishing soon again.Now about the coin, today I went to a local coin shop here in Maryland, I started looking for some nice coins. Then I saw it. A beautiful 2014 silver Britannia. I don't have a Britannia in my collection so I decided to purchase it. I am very thankful that my parents bought it for me as a gift. A silver Britannia is made up of 95.8% silver and weighs an ounce. It is also around 40 millimeters in diameter and 3 millimeters thick. The mintage can very, some Britannias have only about 70,000 copies some have 1,000,000. They are minted in South Wales and has a face value of two pounds.Now some history. Silver Britannias were first available in 1997 where you could get them from proof sets. In 1998, you could start getting them singularly without buying a whole set. The design of a Britannia is pretty interesting. The front shows Queen Elizabeth the second. Rest In Peace. The reverse of the coin shows Britannia. Which is a female warrior who carries a shield and is using a trident as her weapon she is also wearing a helmet. Britannia first appeared on ancient Roman coins. There is also a statue of Britannia. The obverse was designed by Jody Clark in 2015, the obverse was designed by Phillip Nathan in 1987.

Everyone pumped for the YN auction? So pumped! The items are awesome this year! I hope to bring a cool foreign coin and some U.S. coins. Might go for the gold coin but last year it sold for 1500 and I don’t think I can get the gold. The gold coin might be for next year. The auction is Sep. 10th 10AM MDT. Thank you so much to everyone that brought us young numismatists these awesome items this year.

Hi guys! Awesome to be back. Haven’t been posting due to some personal issues. I will start posting again! Hopefully, something doesn’t get in the way of my blogging this time. A lot has happened since my last blog. Pretty recently I got to go to a person and bought off two 1921 XF-AU Morgans for $40+ a 1949 s key date rosie. I made sure everything was real. So I think it is kind of cool. I had to bargain a little but it was a very fun little experience. Anyway, Today I will be writing about GOLD! A very precious metal today! Maybe I will blog about other precious metals in my next blog.
