**Golden Ray on a Cloudy Day**

Coins - World | Kepi

Hey everybody! Hope your all having a great day and that all our YN's are having fun at the live auction! I'd like to share with you one of the first coins I bought for my collection way back in 2007. This was a huge leap as I was a newbie collector and we're talking gold.. But I dived in and bought my first gold coin! This is from the Royal Canadian Mint. A 2007 1oz. Canadian Gold Maple Leaf $200 Dollar Coin. It's also encased in a Assay holder which is kinda cool. This coin weighs 31.15 grams of .99999 of pure gold and has a diameter of 30 mm. The obverse shows Queen Elizabeth ll along with "200 Dollars" and "2007". The reverse is a multi-maple leaf design as well as the inscriptions "CANADA" along with weight, purity and metal. It also had a low mintage of 30,848. Its kinda rainy out here in the desert today. So I decided to look through my coin vault... Rainy day activities...Right... haha Which leads up to this coin. I hadn't looked at it for a long time and thought this is the perfect coin for a blog today! A bright ray of golden sunshine on a cloudy day... I hope you enjoy it too. Comments are always welcomed.

**Bucking Bronco**

Coins-United States | Kepi

Hey fellow Numi's good morning to all, I am in the middle of celebrating an amazing Birthday week... yes, we here at the Desert Compound celebrate a full week of our birth! haha Cool right! I originally saw this 2021 medal when it came out in gold with an inflated price to go with it. I loved the design but couldn't justify $2,600+ for this raw coin. With that being said and to my great surprise the Mint came out with this same design in silver for 2022! Now some coin facts... This is a 2022 American Liberty Silver Proof Medal. Minted in Philadelphia with an mintage of 75,000. 1 troy oz. of silver and a diameter of 40.60 mm. All packed neat and tidy in original Mint boxes! The obverse shows a wild American Mustang bucking off a western style saddle, evoking the throwing off the yoke of British rule during the American Revolution. The rising sun is shown beneath the horse with "LIBERTY" and "2022". Now remember, I just loved this "Western Americana Wild" design...but honestly I would have never guessed the designs true representation without it being explained... I just thought "Cool"! haha Just my opinion... The reverse shows a close up of an amazing eagle! "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA" beneath it. I hope you enjoyed my blog and have a wonderful day! Comments are always welcome.

** 2022 Una and the Lion**

Coins - World | Kepi

Hi Fellow Collectors! This is the latest design in an annual coin series that I collect. It's the 2022 "Una and the Lion", a 1oz. Silver Proof coin. It has a diameter of 38.6 mm and a mintage of 1,500... Mine is #123! The designer of this coin is Glyn Davies and is produced by the East India Company and the Government of St. Helena with Royal Approval of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth ll. I love this series as it reminds me of my big ol' Golden Retriever/ Great Dane, who has now been gone almost two years. Now, let me tell you the Medieval story of Una, a beautiful princess on a quest to save her parents from a dragon who has them imprisoned in a tower. She enters a dark forest where she encounters a fierce lion who is immediately captivated by her beauty and innocence and his rage is replaced by wonder. He, as my ol' boy did, become her faithful companion, forever by her side to protect her from harm. It's the powerful connection and mutual adoration of this ancient legend that has captured my heart. Many thanks thanks for reading my blog! Comments are always welcome.

**Man's Best Friend**

Coins-World | Kepi

Hi everyone! I just received a new coin that I added to my collection and wanted to share it with you. This is a 2022 Fiji Dogs 1 oz Silver $0.50 coin as a GEM BU. In the Republic of Fiji this coin is considered to be legal tender for one-half dollar. The coin is .999 fine silver and measures 40 mm in diameter. Limited mintage of 12,000 pieces. The obverse shows the Coat of Arms of the Republic of Fiji. Now being a "dog person", I love the reverse of this coin! Whats not to love about a big ol' happy dog running towards you in anticipation of a sloppy wet kiss. This is the first coin in the series "Fiji Dogs". Each release of the series will focus on a different dog breed, celebrating a diversity of body shapes and character traits. I can't wait to see next years design and add it to my collection! Thanks for reading my blog! Comments are always welcome. ; )
