The one ounce Libertads are on my hit list. I want an example of the National Bullion coin from each country that makes them.

Can I interest you in what may be one of the only two examples of the Invisible Drop Bear, the national coin of Erewhon? This iconic piece, known in trade circles as Fool's Gold, is almost unheard of outside of the more specialist collectors' circles, and it is famous, or notorious, for having no proof whatsoever. To the uninitiated it looks remarkably like an empty capsule, but you will know better, being the connoisseur that you are. There was a similar piece put out during the time of the Habsburgs, known as the Emperor's New Codpiece, but I only have one example of that and don't want to part with it. Not before I've cleaned it up a bit, at any rate.
I look forward to hearing from you, with a bank draft.

I have heard of this amazing Invisible Drop Bear coin. Apparently it’s a helium/metal alloy, making it so light that it weighs the same as an empty capsule. Also on my list is the Zimbabwean Kangaroo, Tasmanian Dingbat and Kentucky Chicken Nugget.

You're correct about the alloy @ArcaneCollector , and the presence of helium makes the coin evaporate as soon as the capsule is opened. That's why they are so rare.
I've heard various reports of the Kentucky Chicken Nugget, but I believe they go quite well with the Belgian Waffle and the Turkish Delight.

Thats exactly what I am doing. I am collecting 20 of every countries silver coins (the popular countries). The 1/2oz tads were much more affordable than the 1ozers. Everything else I have is 1oz.
