1870 Australian Gold Sovereign 1870 Australian Sovereign TYPE II - Scarce Graded by NGC as AU 58   The modern sovereign came about can be traced back to the Napoleonic wars.

Buffalo Nickel dated 1936 - GEM BU Buffalo Nickel dated 1936 - GEM BU


The Buffalo nickel is one of those numismatic coins that I admire. I like the artistic design and this is one of favorite coins among collectors in the US

It is estimated that over 1.2 billion Buffalo Nickels were minted from 1913 to 1938 at Philadelphia (no mint mark), San Francisco (S), and Denver (D).

It was to be replaced by the Jefferson Nickel which continues in production to this day.

Numismatic Investment

Jim Rogers buy Silver

Jim Rogers, the legendary contrarian investor, author and chairman of Rogers Holdings, is still betting on $2,000 gold in 10 years. He is bullish on silver and says that Silver is 60% or 70% below its all-time high. Gold is making all-time highs. He is suggesting that people should perhaps look at silver, platinum, palladium. Palladium is also 50%-60% below its all-time high. Platinum is maybe 30% below its all-time high.
