    Love those 5 oz Libertads!

    Did those coins come with any capsules? Protective airtites? Or just sleeves/pockets?

    Wanted to get some of these for a while. Exceeded my expectations. It has made it realise how hard it is to take really good photos of coins.

    I can read the cyrillic, the first word is year and the second word is pronounced kanya on the top one. What language are they in? The bottom one looks like it might be Ukranian due to the letter "I" at the end.

    Produced by the Polish Mint for Belarus. Lunar series. These are the first two years. Sorry the capsules are a little scratched and I never remove coins.

    Later years have much lower numbers and resellers want too much for them. Of course there is also GST to contend with. I would like a set but I can’t see me paying that much to collect it.

    The “Second” smidgeon

    bought at the Silver stackers national meeting. A very enjoyable evening. Thanks to all the organizers and sponsors.

    Cool. Noticed that smidgeon 2 and 3 are pictured with original ‘mint’ packaging purple paper. Nice.

    There are only two more from the first batch. The Melbourne meet will be the only chance to bag Smidgeon #4.
