1945 Dos Pesos Gold Coins

Coins | silverbug22

I typically refuse to buy foreign currency seeing as my area of expertise and interest lies in the realm of all things American, but when these two Dos Pesos gold coins came up, I just had to have them! Weighing in at around 1.5 grams each and containing 90% gold content, I was actually able to pick these up around 3% over spot during the most recent dip. The detail on these things is absolutely incredible, and despite being around 80 years old, their luster has remained nearly untouched. To be completely honest, I did not realize how small these would be (about the size of a nickel), but I guess that's just a convenient excuse for me to buy some of the larger gold coins minted by Mexico!

Massive Slab!

Coins | silverbug22

I bought a roll of ATB quarters about 2 years ago during the pandemic dip, and ever since I've wanted to get one in one of the massive NGC slabs. Grade wasn't really a concern for me seeing as I just wanted to have a huge slab to add to my silver collection, but I lucked out finding a near-perfect Australian Koala in PF69 UCAM for well below market (thanks to the most recent dip). I also was able to scoop up a gold 0.5 gram Kangaroo from the same seller, and although it is very, very small, I am a HUGE fan. I love the detail on such a small coin and it's extremely affordable despite being gold. And just for size reference, that Kangaroo is slightly smaller than a dime, showing just how massive that slab really is.
