90th Anniversary of the end of World War I gold coin

Charles Darwin 200 Anniversary silver coin

Celebration coin for Lady Diana, Queen of Hearts

HRH The Prince of Wales silver coin

Ten Thousand Yen coin

What a stunning collection.

At one stage in my life, I collected coins. Not rare ones as I did not have that level of money, but ones from the Australian Mint where they would issue coins on a regular basis. Eventually this collection was sold by my ex-husband. Such a shame.
