Default Here's My Gold Coin I Got Last Week-End.....



Here's my annual gold coin purchased with some of my clad from this year. Hit the coin show last week-end, and I picked another Persian Coin. (Last years was from Turkey)



Here's a close-up of the coin. I paid $275.00 Can. for it. It's rated as "BU" ( "Brilliant Uncirculated"). If you Google Persian Gold coins, you will see some beautiful looking coins, which is why I like buying them.


Including the miniatures, I have close to 40 gold coins saved now. Some years, I purchased more then one gold coin.Twenty years ago, I could purchase a decent gold coin, just with my pennies for around $40.00. But, because of the increase price of gold and greater popularity of collecting gold coins, they have increased in value at an extensive level.

Beautiful Coin! That was a good idea you had too...converting finds into another side hobby you also enjoy, that could actually appreciate in value...Like a triple Win there John!...

A goal like that would indeed keep a guy motivated and thankful for clad! Every day out would bring a person one step or dollar closer to the gold!
