  1. I mainly collect Engelhard silver and a few different series (ASE's, Kook's, Panda's, etc...), but I sometimes get weak and buy other silver that catches my eye. Here are some other cool pieces that I have accumulated over the last 6 months or so.
  2. I'm working away at trying to complete the set. I am still 8 dates away from the finish line, but I can see the light at the end of the tunnel. Beautiful coins.
  3. It's where I learned to love bitter (Tetley's mainly). I also still occasionally wear my Eric Cantona Leeds United Jersey, even though they gave him away to Man United just when I arrived in town....
  4. Love those Engelhards.....
  5. Thanks for the guidance. I wasn't sure of the availability of older Britannia's on that side of The Atlantic. They bring a nice premium over here. I used to live/work in Leeds from 1993-1994. I actually worked in Horsforth, but spent a lot of time having fun in Leeds and the surrounding area. Brings back memories.
  6. Is it common to collect Britannia's in the UK? I dug up a couple of older ones (2002 & 2008) from my stack, and was going to sell/trade them locally. I would send them back to their birthplace if anyone had an interest or needed them to fill out a collection. I will start a new thread in the buy/sell section of the forum if necessary, as I don't want to start a transactional thread in this section.
  7. I saw on youtube recently, someone posted a video of their collection of vintage 1oz silver bars with classic Corvettes from different years.
  8. I will keep a lookout for your future posts.... I'd love to find 25-50 of them locally, just so I can play with them (no kidding). They remind me of pirate silver. I know we're really lucky in the US to be able to buy pre-1964 silver coins almost anywhere at reasonable prices, but I would trade a bunch of Franklins, Kennedys or Mercury dimes for a sackful of Thalers.
  9. Thanks. I hear you about the silver content, but it would still make it more interesting than just always picking up more silver dollars, and other various halves, quarters and dimes.
  10. How often do members see the Maria Theresa Thalers in your local shops? They are not very common in the local stores in New England, but when you do see them they never cost much more than the actual silver value. I realize that the originals may be more expensive, but the restrikes have been continuously produced for years. Are they priced accordingly in the UK/EU, or do they carry a premium over junk? I'd love to buy handfuls of them instead of always just picking up US junk silver, for a little variety. Thanks.
