As of Dec 2019, I had 109 NGC Competitive Sets, of which 34 received awards in 2019 (I had 42 that received awards as the top listing in 2018) and 35 are number 2. The competition has really been tough this past year.

I continue to focus on my 20th Century Mexico, Portugal and Colonies, CAR, Guatemala, Canada and Peru Collections. This effort started about 60 years ago when I traded my U.S. stamp collection for a box of Mexican coins. In addition, I've always liked really "nice" (superb condition) coins.

highway98e PERU 1/2 LIBRA GOLD - 1902-1969 Goal is completion :) The 1/2 Libras are tough. The original mintages as published in the major catalogs are mostly wrong, as they are for most Peruvian gold coins from 1898-1969, though the actual mintages can be discovered with some imaginative searching (and not in the usual internet places). 4/20/2021

deposito 1916 Coins of the USA and World First I just planned to get a nice example of each USA type for 1916. I knew the Standing Liberty quarter was going to be a problem. Presently that is substituted for by a 1917 Standing Liberty quarter. Hopefully one of us will pick that up someday.

A little later in 2016 I figured I should see what other 1916 coins were available. We now have more than 46 different countries / colonies / protectorates / territories covered.

For some countries only base metal coins or tokens are available for 1916. (Venezuela has only leper colony tokens). For many other countries, I have never seen any coin of any kind available. Like Guatemala and Bolivia. There are still plenty of countries with coins that I know can be obtained, but it is a shrinking list, and I have taken out all the easy ones already.

Coins that I know exist, and can be sometimes bought, but mostly for too much, and not too often, include:

1. Afganistan (got one)
2. Bulgaria
3. More Chinese provincial issues
4. Costa Rica gold
5. Chile gold (got it)
6. Japan gold
7. Egypt Gold (got it)
8. Tunisia Gold (23 minted?)
9. Better British Honduras
10. Better Venezuela Maricaibo leper colony token
11. Silver 20 cent Straits Settlement (got it)
12. Gold Netherlands Ducat (got it)
13. Austria Gold
14. Hungary Gold
15, Better Philippines 20c (got it)
16. Better Columbia 50c
17. Better Argentina 20c
18. Canada 50c
19. Great Britain gold
20. Australia gold (got it)
21. Bigger better Cuban gold

My kid hopefully has many decades to grow up and work on this.

Thalermaniac PASSION OF LUDWIG Ludwig I ruled Bavaria from his coronation in 1825 until 1848, when he abdicated his throne in favor of his son, Maximilian. It is my opinion that he was one of the most interesting personae in German history. As a very intelligent and educated man, he assumed his role as a King with full responsibility and, arguably, great passion. He had a great many passions; he loved change, and imposing it, he loved women, art, science, Greece, architecture etc. – but his dearest passion of all was coins, of course! He adored seeing new coins, especially those displaying his portrait and great achievements as the King. He oversaw the production of many commemorative coins: more than any other Germanic ruler. Within this set I would like to tell you the flamboyant story of the great ruler, Ludwig I of Bayern, son of Maximilian I Joseph, Duke of Franconia, Duke of Swabia, Count Palatine of the Rhine, etc. Let the journey begin! 2/6/2014 4/17/2021 289443

deposito 26 Centuries of Gold Primary Objective: Assemble a timeline of gold coins from the start of coinage through the present.
Ideally, this will be without more than 100 years between the examples for each century. I've still got a troubling gap between AD 237 and the 340's.

Secondary Objective: Illustrate the longest running issues used in long-distance trade between neighbors, enemies, and strangers. Once coinage was developed, major international trade almost always relied on gold coins. This is why Western Europe was draining out gold and silver to India and East Asia in the long run; a forerunner of today’s major trade deficits between the “West” and modern India and East Asian states. Except today, somehow we got those countries to accept our digital currency units instead of real money or products. Examples of “mini series” include the Netherlands gold ducats of 1586 to the present, Venetian ducats from the 1280’s to 1797, Islamic dinars and other gold units from about 700 to the present, Byzantine solidi from about 300 to 1000, etc.

Tertiary Objective: Get nice examples of gold coins from significant places or people in world history.

The references I found most useful in collecting these coins are "English Silver Coinage - since 1649" by P. Alan Rayner and "English Copper, Tin, and Bronze Coins in the British Museum 1558-1958" by C. Wilson Peck.


These coins were acquired - mostly as raw coins - between 1982 and 2017.

TMS Coins 4. GREAT BRITAIN, GOLD HALF-SOVEREIGNS 1817-2017, COMPLETE CIRCULATION ISSUES. My main collecting interest has been on the modern coinage of Cyprus 1879-1949.
During this period Cyprus was under British Administration and the "piastre coinage" made its appearance in 1879. The copper piastre became the unit of currency and was fixed at the rate of 180 to the British gold sovereign. The gold sovereign became the standard measure of value and remained the coin of unlimited legal tender throughout the period from 1878-1960. During the reign of Queen Victoria, the gold half-sovereign was also legal tender, demonetized though from the 1st May 1901. Due to this relation, after completion of the "Cyprus Piastre Coinage Collection", the collection of sovereigns and half-sovereigns became a strong challenge. So, nine years ago I started to build up this collection of gold half-sovereigns with the goal to obtain high grade examples for every year since their first issue in 1817, buying always the best that could be afforded. As the quality of the individual coins determines the strength and value of a collection, constant emphasis was given on quality and condition rarity. For some rarer and scarcer pieces though I had to compromise condition in order to fill the empty slot, hoping to upgrade as opportunity permits. However there are a few ultra rarities in these series: 1836 (R6), 1845 (R4), 1862 (R6), 1879 (R4); not a single example of these appeared in a decent condition for many years!
It is true that in general half-sovereigns, especially those of the 19th Century, have become a great deal more difficult to find in uncirculated condition, even more difficult than finding uncirculated gold sovereigns. Despite this, it is really a challenge to hunt, to recognize opportunities and be prepared to strike when a piece comes up in order to fill up the empty slots with high grade coins or upgrade certain dates. "There is no substitution for quality".
Although the collection is still a work in progress, contains examples from all the Reigns. All coins are NGC-certified and many of them are "Top Pop" or single finest graded, quite a few conditionally rare.
Actually 2017 is more exciting because is the 200th anniversary of the "modern" half-sovereign which was first struck in 1817. During this year I managed to fill up some empty slots with new entries and make a few upgrades, so the collection reached an 81% completion. I also added, as a "guest star", a 1937 PF 66 Ultra Cameo half-sovereign of King George VI. During his reign only proof half-sovereigns were struck by the Royal Mint as part of the four coin Coronation Proof Set, with a mintage of only 5001.

Denoted by a + symbol appearing after the grade, the plus designation indicates that a coin is of superior quality for the grade and that it approaches the next technical grade level. In numismatics, in addition to plus, several terms are used interchangeably to indicate this, including premium quality, PQ and high-end.

Star Designation identifies coins with exceptional eye appeal, including vibrant, colorful toning or intense luster.

World_Coin_Nut WCN - Pre-1800 World Coins I started collecting like a lot us have. My grandfather collected coins when I was little and I helped him sort coins. He gave me a Lincoln folder that we filled holes in. It is amazing to me how nice his collection was and he never purchased a coin. Everything came from circulation. Fast forward 40 years and my tastes have evolved.

At this point the bulk of my new acquisitions are world coins. My favorites are large diameter copper/brass/bronze pieces. I think this is due to my love of US large cents. Aside from that, I buy anything that speaks to me, you know the voice. Hope you enjoy it.

At some point, everything will be in only NGC holders but certain details graded coins don't bother me so will stay in the set.

TMS Coins 1A.GREAT BRITAIN, GOLD HALF-SOVEREIGN CIRCULATION ISSUES, 1817-1915 Twelve years since I started building up this interesting collection of these beautiful and historical coins. Twelve years full of excitement and fun, buying always the best that could be afforded. The goal from the beginning was to obtain high-grade examples for every year since their first strike in 1817. As the quality of the individual coins determines the strength and value of a collection, constant emphasis was given on quality and condition rarity. For some rarer and scarcer pieces though, I had to compromise condition in order to fill up the empty slot, hoping to upgrade as opportunity permits.
It is true that in general, half-sovereigns, especially those of the 19th Century, have become a great deal more difficult to find in uncirculated condition, even more difficult than finding uncirculated gold sovereigns. It was actually the half-sovereign that had the most circulation in Victorian Britain. Many sovereigns languished in bank vaults for most of their lives. However I must continue to hunt, to recognize opportunities and be prepared to strike when a piece comes up in order to fill up the empty slots with high grade coins or upgrade certain dates. "There is no substitution for quality".
Although the collection is still a work in progress, contains examples from all the Reigns. Many of the coins in this set are Top Pop or the single finest graded with quite a few condition rarities. Definitely the crown jewel of this collection is the 1844 MS66, for its pedigree, its quality and condition rarity. Highlights of condition rarities among other scarce coins are: 1820 MS64+, 1823 MS65, 1834 MS64, 1847 MS64, 1849 MS65, 1850 MS63, 1852 MS65, 1872 MS64 and 1893 MS66.
Actually the year 2017 has been more exciting because it was the 200th anniversary of the "modern" sovereign and the "modern" half-sovereign which were first issued in 1817. During that year I managed to fill up some empty slots with new entries and make a few upgrades.
In 2018 five more coins were added to the collection, between them the exceedingly rare 1845 VF35, the 1850 MS63 (R3, M.Marsh) and the 1838 MS64, the very first of the Victorian half-sovereigns. Also some significant upgrades were made, like the 1893 MS66 (Single finest graded) and the 1835 MS64+. Now the collection reached a completion of 86% with 75 coins (October 2018).
During 2019 and 2020 some more new entries and upgrades were made, so the collection reached a completion of 88% with 78 coins

Denoted by a + symbol appearing after the grade, the plus designation indicates that a coin is of superior quality for the grade and that it approaches the next technical grade level. In numismatics, in addition to plus, several terms are used interchangeably to indicate this, including premium quality, PQ and high-end.

Star Designation identifies coins with exceptional eye appeal, including vibrant, colorful toning or intense luster.

World_Coin_Nut Wildman Coins of the German States To assemble a set of Wildman (or Wild Man) coins from the German States that has as many different varieties as I can acquire. I am trying to only add new pieces that are well struck but this is very challenging. This is a fascinating series that I always find new reasons to love.

It's hard to believe that it has been over 4 years since I created this set on the registry. I continue to add coins as I find them but recently I have focused on Thalers. There is an enormous amount of minors available but in general, they don't have the stylistic beauty of the Thalers. No other coins in my collection give me the joy that these Wildmen do.

coin928 Netherlands East Indies - Minted by the U.S. Mint A complete set of coins minted by the U.S. Mint for the Netherlands East Indies during World War II with all of the primary coins graded MS65 or higher. Any variety or error coins may be lower. This basic goal has been met with the exception of the 1941S 1/4G at MS64 which is currently the finest known. Until I find a nicer raw or graded coin, I may have gone about as far as I can go save for an occasional upgrade.
