The Kangaroo That Got Away  Empty The Kangaroo That Got Away

Mon Aug 14, 2023 4:23 am
I'd like to buy this upcoming 2023 Perth 1-oz silver kangaroo for my wildlife series. Unfortunately, I'll have to pass on this beauty.

With a 32 mm diameter, the coin's width is too small compared to the 39-41 mm wildlife coins I have. More importantly, it's whopping 6 mm depth will not fit in a Quadrum capsule. Maybe a colorized camel 🐫 will be released down the road. Very Happy

I have to admit and ashamed that I do not own a Kilo Coin... I have 5 kilo bars, and kilo bars and 100oz bars.. but no kilo coins... The largest I own is 10oz coins. I mentioned this to someone that I have to get a kilo coin... any type just for the heck of it.

But yes that is beautiful.

Nothing to be ashamed of @Admin . 10oz is plenty to admire. I just wish Durga had been a bit bigger, although Le Grand Mint's premium wouldn't bear thinking about.
The not-Steve's Kangaroo is only 1oz though, so you could indulge.

Thanks for the sales pitch TCM. I do have another Perth coin on order and will showcase it upon arrival.

No kilo coin?Shocked Oh the shame.Laughing Because you have no such power coin, you will receive a consolation prize. That's right! A box of Rice-A-Roni. "The San Francisco Treat!" Laughing

I haven't ordered it yet. Other PMs moved it down the priority scale. I know, you're going to beat me over the head for making such a huge puff about that coin.

I know the feeling all too well, Steve. My downfall is that when I think I have the month's spending nicely balanced, I see a new release in a series that I'm collecting, or a special order comes in a few days before I'm expecting. This is a particular thing with Intaglio, where my seller imports from the US and when he gets a shipment is somewhat in the lap of the gods. Sigh!

Except for the special case with your seller who imports Intaglio, I couldn't have said it better. While focusing on current coins, I'll discover others that had already been released. And depending on the type of PM, that's when I have to prioritize based on what I like and my funds.

My first round was the 1916 Mercury 2 oz tribute that I bought directly from Intaglio in 2021. I always loved the woman's profile and had to get it for its size to display on my desk.

It is lovely Steve. As you know, I do have a fondness for Intaglio Mint Rounds, especially the 2oz chubbies. They do some gorgeous cat portraits too (not easy by any means), both serious and more whimsical. I have most of the ones issued so far, and the rest on order.

I know you have a fondness for Intaglio TCM. And it's easy to see why. They offer everything from mild sleeping cats to wild cat themes. You struck it rich with them. Pretty amazing!
