I'd like to have the silver dollar from 1921, for its 90% silver content .

I have some coins from a trip down under, I'll see if I can muster up some photos tonight, however my track record with posting photos on the forums is horrible

I'll try, the only downside is I have to send back this Macro lens I've been playing with today, and the coins are at home

Well done Saly. I mentioned blurry shots in other post. You might want to assemble the coins 2 up, front and back side by side so the files (each coin front and back) will always remain together.

Thanks, unfortunately I only have one of most of these so I can only shoot one side at a time... I was going to put them together in Photoshop but got lazy...

Thanks, Bynx. My wife's grandparents have been giving us these for Christmas for a while. I thought I might have had some others, but I think I've spent them (I like to get dollar coins into circulation, but I don't think they're going to catch on until the bill is removed, and I don't think that will happen any time soon).

I have a proof set from the Denver mint, but it's in a box somewhere, I'll have to keep looking. I've also got some coins from various travels between my wife and me. I'll see what I can dig up.

What a really cool idea!

Thank you Green Eyed. I figure there are a lot of people here from all over the world. Im hoping everyone can contribute something. Id especially like to see the various currencies of the European Common Market that was replaced by the Euro. Francs, lira, etc.
