How can a guy pic just one?
Got a magazine today.


With an ad.


A holder


12 rounds that are each better than the others.



So tell me, how can there be 1 or 10?

I know my pictures suck but you get the idea, eh.

RT, I've got 3 different versions of it and think each is the best when it's in my hand.

Silver Stacker rounds by Scottsdale Mint: https://www.scottsdalesilver.com/. The reverse side has an impression that matches the obverse, so they stack up neatly into a tube.

Their omnia rounds are pretty cool too.

They also have a direct ebay store that they sell on and Apmex/other dealers carry their product as well. They usually have hefty premiums (unless you can score an ebay auction at a good price), but the fondle/cool factor is off the charts.

One other point.....apparently there are rumors/reports of some Scottsdale product being fake, but AFAIK those were purchased from "other" ebay sellers, not Scottsdale direct. Be careful who the seller is on your bids if buying ebay.

I don't have one of these yet, but its hard to beat the two sided version.

Yep the 2-sided 1973 Colonial Mint version of Marilyn is the best one of the three in terms of collector premium IMO. However, when I see a nude Marilyn silver art bar and hold it in my hand, then it does not matter if it is a Colonial , World Wide Mint or a Robert Westfall minted Marilyn bar. They all look good to me IMO then again any nude woman on a silver art bar/round looks good to me. :)

I do not plan to get married and I have not seen a Roseanne round and I do not plan to get one if it exists. However, I plan to continue to buy nude silver art bars at coin shows and LCS. :)

Yeah that's all fine and good. It's great to have both, but gold is superior.
No actually in every conceivable way silver is supiriot. Silver is the best element for electrical and thermal conductivity. It's better than gold for reflectivity and antibacterial etc etc.....

That's why gold stockpiles are going up and silver is going down,

Tom, your images are phenomenal as usual.

The nicest looking one I've seen in a long time is a 2-oz Cleopatra Ultra High Relief. The pics below don't do it justice.

That is a beauty round and Heidi's signature on it makes it look a mite nicer.

TomD, please do us a favor and post your picture of the best bi-metallic coin ever, the 2005 Don Quijote 100 peso.

Your picture is the reason I tracked down a clean proof version for myself.

Probably not the best but it is still nice to hold/fondle/drool over.
