+Cheesy pigs Posted February 20, 2009 Share Posted February 20, 2009 I have been fondling my coins looking for some to sell (to continue to fund the habit) and have come to the conclusion that there are just some that I dont think i'll ever be able to get rid of. So APART from your Mystery Coins (because they are a given), which coins do you absolutely love, and why? Here is my Top 10 (in no particular order): Tiki Lord Pomsby - There is something about the expression on this one's face. The others are a bit tribal and ferocious, but the Lord seems a bit sombre. I also love the fact that this coin is hand made - and it will only ever improve with handling, rather than become flawed. Allegany State Park Geobash - Gorgeous coins, all of them. A lot more simple than some coins, but really appealing. Shiny Gold 2007 Earth Turtle - Gold is my favourite colour, so I wanted it for that reason, until I got the others in hand - the colours are just amazing, and I could stare at this coin for hours - I love the message and the artwork too. An all-round superb job. The Loggerhead series - More excellent coins. I never knew how much I loved turtles until i started geocoin collecting, and now I have whole families of them. I adore the Micros too - so well made! Alaska Coins - All of LadyBugKids coins are excellent. The amount of work that goes into them is just amazing, and I also like that they are made of bronze, silver and gold - they will keep their worth no matter what the geocoin market does. I also like that they are based on Arctic animals - I love all animals, but Polar Bears and Wolves in particular (and Moose are cute too). Stunning coins, great artwork and presentation. Winners in my book BelKen - This one is incredibly interesting to me - I like the raised Australia on the back, the photo, etc. All very Australian Jellyfish - what dont I like about this one? Nothing! Jellyfish is so cute. I may have raved about him enough, but for such a simple coin, it evokes a lot of feelings in me. Jellyfish is a jelly on a mission - you can see he's going somewhere...and it's important Scout Knives - All three sets, all 4 metal combinations. Just a really cool coin that even non-coin collectors love. I have had so many muggles ask to buy it! Scout memorabilia collectors also love it. It's just so realistic! Rivercity/Team Moagy Personal - Beautiful artwork, and message on this coin, and a beautiful person who made it. Brahean AE - I thought it looked quite nice in its picture, but in hand this is a really gorgeous coin! I love the three spinners, the weight of it, the metal combination...i could go on. But everyone knows what a great coin this one is! And because I am a greedy pig, and it's hard to choose just 10, here are the runner ups (also in no particular order): TikiBirds Micro - another one with the 'je ne sais quoi'! I love the artwork, the size, the birds, etc 2007 Compass Rose LE - although I love the artwork, it is also special to me because of how I got it. SkinGuy (Black Nickel) - Who can resist a smiley? Dressel Dagons Gold - Stunning coin. Northern Territory Geocachers - This is most special because of how these coins came into my possession. Sometimes I think being an out and proud geocoin-addict is embarrassing but every now and then something will happen that makes you believe in the generosity and kindness of people. I like that coins are an avenue to make others happy. Anthus Laptops - really unique coins. These ones really pushed the bar, i feel. Quite a few amazing coins came out after this one - coins arent just round and flat anymore! And geocaching/geocoining involves a lot of internet, so I think its really appropriate. And the gold is my favourite - of course! Carousel Horses - Stunning!!! Roll on Carousel Lions! Wooooo!! Big cats!!!!! Koh Koh's coin (GBOTs) - Brilliant use of colours and enamels in this one, plus KohKoh is adorable Australia 2008 Silver - another gift that I absolutely adore Mousekakat 2008 personal - this one incorporates all my loves on it - nature, tulips, cats....and of course it's Mousey's coin, so how can it not be great?!
