Gumnut Baby sculpture stolen

By: Blog Team Perth Mint Blog

Extremely upsetting news that thieves have stolen one of the Gumnut Baby sculptures from Stirling Gardens in the centre of Perth.

The theme of our Snugglepot & Cuddlepie™ 2015 1/2oz Silver Proof Coin, the characters are the much-loved creation of Australian author and artist May Gibbs, who published her first book about the pair’s adventures in 1918. The sculptures are by Claire Bailey and date from 2001.

Hopefully it won’t be too long before the missing Baby is returned and the statue repaired for all to enjoy once again.

How Rare Are Choice High-Grade Dahlonega Half Eagles?

March 18, 2015 in Blogs, Coins, Collecting, Education, Gold, Gold Coins, Numismatica, Numismatics, Precious Metals, Rare Coins, USA Coins

By Doug Winter RareGoldCoins.com (Douglas Winter Numismatics)

1838-D $5.00 NGC AU58 CAC

Since I wrote the first of my three editions of Dahlonega gold books over two decades ago, I’ve sought to constantly remind collectors that truly choice, high-grade (in this instance high-grade equates to coins which grade AU55 and above) Dahlonega half eagles are rare, regardless of how “common” the issue seems to be in terms of overall rarity.

With the advent of CAC, we now have over five years of data which focuses on choice, higher grade coins of all dates and mints. The CAC data isn’t perfect. I’ve found myself disagreeing with CAC on more than one occasion regarding Full article at the source>

Spain coin 70 years of peace caused controversy

SPAIN GOLD
A Spain coin commemorates “70 years of peace in Europe” and showing the face of King Felipe VI has caused controversy because critics note that in Spain, the last 70 years includes the Francisco Franco dictatorship.
What’s more, the motto has echoes of the one the dictator himself used to celebrate “25 years of peace” following the end of the Spanish Civil War (1936-1939).

The coin obverse bears portrait of King Felipe VI. The reverse features the stylized image of a a dove holding a branch of an olive tree in its beak, as a universal symbol of peace with inscription “70 YEARS OF PEACE”.

Joan Baldoví, a deputy for the Valencian group Compromís, said that “it is inappropriate for the government of Spain to attempt to celebrate 70 years of peace when this period Full article at the source>
