**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.

Exonumia | Kepi

Happy Halloween Everyone!!! I have a crazy story about my Mom, who sometimes makes up crazy things in her mind....Don't get me wrong I love her! : ) Well you see, my Mom and Dad divorced years ago...It's okay...I'm over it. But get this, my Mom thinks that Dad has, over the years, buried treasure in my Grandparent's place on 5 acres in the desert...and not just any old treasure, GOLD BARS! She's been out there digging around, sometimes my husband plows up dirt so it looks like a fresh dig... Ahhh What the heck as long as she has fun! Dad said he doesn't have any gold...or does he.... TRICK OR TREAT! How's your family doing lately?
