The Zombucks Collection

The undead collection will see 10 historical figures and coin designs fall victim to the zombie apocalypse. Rounds are released every three months through 2015 and are produced by the Provident Mint in silver and copper bullion and proof versions. Prepare for the apocalypse and fight the bite with Zombucks!

These two recent picks up I've added to my collection, I do hope to be able to get the rest and complete the set.

The Morgue Anne and the ZomBuff,

One cool thing about the Morgue Anne I picked up is it is a Mint Error. It is struck in 1oz .999 silver but was struck with .999 Fine copper wording. I don't know how many were minted with this error but it is really cool to have one as part of the collection. 

Celebrate 70 Years of Charlie Brown, Snoopy and the gang with the APMEXclusive® Peanuts 70th Anniversary 1 oz Silver rounds. Each features Charlie Brown himself along with the Peanuts 70th Anniversary logo. 


Contains 1 oz of .999 fine Silver
APMEXclusive® series
Limited mintage of 7,000 rounds

Obverse: Depicts an officially licensed image of Charlie Brown standing with arm extended next to the official Peanuts 70th Anniversary logo with Snoopy laying on top
Reverse: Displays the officially licensed Peanuts logo along with the following characters from left to right: Pig-Pen, Schroeder, Franklin, Woodstock, Sally Brown, Charlie Brown, Lucy Van Pelt, Peppermint Patty, and Marcie

Utah Goldbacks

The Goldback is the world’s first voluntary, complementary currency to be made of a spendable, beautiful, small denomination, physical gold.

I found out about the Goldbacks a couple months ago and after doing some reading on them I have to add these to my collection. The set pictured is the first series known as the Utah Goldback, There is currently also a set for Nevada and A New Hampshire set is coming soon. While I am primarily a silver collector/stacker I think this is a neat way to own some gold without a huge investment up front. The beautiful artwork just adds to the collectability of these notes and whether you plan on getting them to barter for items or to collect, These are hands down some of the best looking small denomination physical gold items to have.

From their site: Goal of the Goldback

We are working to make it possible for an anyone to have a choice on whether or not they want their regular spending money to be subject to inflation. The Goldback is meant to be the best physical complementary currency for retaining value. Our goal is for people to be able to pay for anything with the Goldback whether it is a new home or a lemonade. Each Goldback is at least valued at the current rate on Goldback.com by businesses.

You can find more info about the Goldback at their site.

Are you buying in the dip?

Over the last few days we've seen a dip in the silver spot price. A price that was hovering in the $27 dollar range has dipped down and now hovering around $22 or so.  What is your strategy? Do you always wait for the lowest price or just try to cost average your inventory. For Me if the deal is good or its a piece that I want then price doesn't really matter and I'm buying when I'm able, I just recently picked up $10 Face of 90% Silver Dimes from Apmex, My goal is really to try and hold for retirement and just price cost average what I buy, Ive purchased at $11 and I've purchased at $30+ with the premiums.  My feeling is it's good to have at any price! What are your thoughts?

Carson City Morgan Silver Dollar

This 1883 Morgan Silver Dollar is minted by the Cason City Mint.  The Carson City mint made coins from 1878 to 1904 and then again in 1921. Up until 1964 US Citizens could redeem their silver certificates for silver dollars at the mints and In 1962 someone received a rare Morgan dollar in exchange that was mixed in a bag of other silver dollars and this spurred interest for collectors. The Treasury had discovered previously unknown mint bags of Carson City dollars in the vaults with over 2.8 Million silver dollars. In 1970 the GSA was given responsibility to market and sell the coins. The coins were sorted and mounted in these plastic display cases. Today these coins can bring a nice premium and if graded can command much higher prices. The Carson City mint generally had lower mintage numbers so it makes them a nice piece of history to add to your collection.

2019 S. Africa Krugerrand. NGC MS70 FDOI

Starting in 1967 the Krugerrand was minted to help market South African gold and was produced by the Rand Refinery and the South African Mint and starting in 2017 they issued it's first-ever silver Krugerrand. It's popularity led to the coin being offered annually starting in 2018. This example is my first Krugrerand in my collection and is an NGC Slabbed and Graded MS70 with the First Day of Issue moniker. The face of the coin depicts a springbok which is the national animal of South Africa and the obverse bares the face of Paul Kruger who was a four term president of the old South African Republic

I picked up this coin from DA Sails who is a member on our discord. Their site is dasails.

Stacker Soap, Treasure Found

It's been a couple weeks since posting about the Stacker Soap that we got from Etsy, I've been using this soap daily in the kitchen and bathroom and I have finally used up the soap enough to pull the silver out. We got some really cool hand poured designs to check out. I had ordered 4 bars (2 skull designs and 2 Howling Wolves) I ended up getting bars for the wolves and then 1 skull bar and 1 skull round. Stop by HaySeed Revelry on Etsy to check them out!

Bullion Holders

I had been looking for a better way to store my 1oz Bullion rounds, I had many in capsules or flips usually just stored in a tote or small box. I wanted to share this cool little storage solution I found on Amazon. The listing advertises the manufacturer as Modpion, The seller has 2 different styles. At this time of this post for $12.99 you get a plastic storage case, 60 capsules, a micro fiber cloth and 2 finger gloves for holding the bullion. I got my order in today and I am really impressed for the price. I spent a little time moving all my 1oz rounds over to these capsules. It fit every single one I had including American Silver Eagles. The Capsules say they are 41mm and the cloth and finger gloves for handling is a nice little extra for the price!  I will definitely order a few more to have on hand in case the listing is discontinued. I was also able to fit a few of my 2oz rounds with their capsules in the row as well with just removing a few of the 1oz capsules. 

41mm Case with Capsules

30mm Case with Capsules and Inserts 

They also have another variant that fits 200 capsules in the plastic case sized at 30mm and it includes adjustable foam inserts that allow you to get a range of sizes  (17/20/25/27/30 mm) for $14.99. Most of my collection I tend to stick with 1oz or 2oz rounds so I probably won't need this size but it's neat to have that option to fit various things.
