Edit: problem with size of images
don't worry, paste as a large as you can ... people will figure out how to look at it
bokeh is good
I walked into the jewelry shop in Seoul a few months ago and gave them 3oz of gold I came back 4 days later to find this. Best part is I didn't get robbed by the highway jewelry robbers in Aus on the labor cost, worked out just over $100 aus to make.
Work yesterday...spend the extra public holiday money on this baby...my first carded lunar. Like I said before...game enough for everything
Not for sale at the moment...maybe next week..lol
And it's 9999 too!
That's what the piece of paper says!
yesterday missed 4 coin proof set and was very upset ...
today got these coins, and looks like I'm happy today
North Korea, all are 999 silver
Meet! Korean Lunar series coins ... (will do better pictures when coins arrive)
Are those coins tough to get?
Yeap, North Korea.
To be honest that's the first time in almost 4 years watching an auction in Japan I've seen the coins of N.Korean Lunar Series for sale ...
As of other North Korean coins I've noticed several colored pandas, as well as very few commemorative coins showing up once in a while
I haven't tracked how often they show up on auction but comparing them to 1983 panda, I'd say that for 5 1983 pandas listed on auction here (yeah, they are not that rare here) there is one North Korean modern silver coin. (at least I've seen that many pandas and that few N.Korean coins)
Now here's gold coin set on auction http://page.auctions.yahoo.co.jp/jp/auction/172679971
Hmm, the North Korean coins were available at the SG Coin fair recently.
It was all the rage cos they pretty much sold their whole lot! Also helped that they had some pretty girls manning the booth. :lol:
(Rumour has it that even Jim Rogers sent someone down to buy some coins).
here is the rumor
BTW, how much were N.Korean coins worth at SG Coin fair?
oh wow! so it was reported somewhere. lol.
anyway, sorry I'm not able to help with how much the coins were cos I didn't manage to get any!
That JM 5 gram looks way much better in person
Here are some recent purchases of mine:
Nice pics on the brittanias. I always struggle to take a good photo on them
I want to introduce my mascot.
He is standing all mighty tall after beaten the lunar snakes making island of
Not exactly bar/coin, but still silver!
Saw this on my trip to Adelaide last year...and got curious and rang the shop...yup still sitting in the front shop. So made my impulse buying...defintely won't get recorded on my notebook...lol. One day I will frame it properly.

The coolest silver I have ever bought.
Cant wait to read what happens when someone takes those through an airport scanner in their cabin bags.
