I like a few of the big crown sized coins as a part of my stack as a piece of economic history and from each country express its own cultural statement on its own coin.
What is the last country to have used silver as currency?
Germany still had some .625 silver 10 mark coins in 1972.
Never say never. History repeats, it may not be soon, but I would bet they will indeed be used again. For most of history we have used this type of money. Infact Texas as well as other US States have made gold legal tender for all forms of payment. You can debit your gold holdings from a card or withdraw the physical bullion as well.
1966 Australian 50c was 80% silver.
This is exactly the area of coin collecting I enjoy the most. The Balboas are my favourite from your selection, closely followed by the Swiss Miss.
I love old coins…I have a Georgian crown and a half franc from 1834 as well as a few Netherlands 10 cents coins which are really small (smaller than a 3d) some pre-decimal and US silver excluding most crowns and dollars as it works out cheaper than bullion (I have 10 maples)
My next coin is going to be a 20 balboa from Panama but that will be in the new year
The price of silver has always remained relatively constant. It’s inflation that made minting these coins at face value prohibitively expensive.
I don’t think silver and gold becoming money again is impossible. We just need good trends starting…
If someone would pay you in gold and silver modern currency, lets say 3 gold philharmonics a month, would the taxman take gold value or face value in tax?
They would take it as the metal value, not the denomination value. You are supposed to declare any payment in goods on your tax form.
I love these sorts of coins. I can often get them at spot, even numismatic coins. And for purely numismatic coins, I can get for for just a few Dollars over spot nine times out of ten.
Canadian coins wer 80% silver until 1967 besides the 1967 dollar and 50 cent peace
Thanks for the tips!
Fun collection to have, regardless. I own one old world silver coin
It’s a great hobby! Thanks again for sharing this information with us all!😊👍🏼🙏🏼
Thanks for stopping by and watching!
I really like I believe his name is something like Balboa coin?? Anyway I think there interesting!👍🏼Lots of Love Bobbi 😊🙏🏼
It’s a tie on Panama and the Swiss, I am a die hard for both.
the way you are handling them gave me the willies yes they are curculated but why add to the damage
It literally makes no difference for these coins – they are coins after all, meant to be handled and clinked together!
Really nice coins. Not good for stacking here in the US, but fun to own. Bullion is big but the old junk silver coins get only about 70% of spot. Thank you BYB.
Nice vlog! Good advice. I liked the 50 cents 1944 Canadian coin. I would like to accumulate these coins.
Nice I subscribed your channel for more videos
