AIEEEE Ebay!

I've come to the conclusion that I've spent way, WAY too much money this past month and a half.  And I mean that from the perspective that I've bought too many casino chips, silver strikes, silver coins, stamps and other collectibles.  But I'll admit if I didn't buy the pretties, I'd likely spend the money on other things... and I'd be making the same complaints that I'm making right now.

I will say that at least what I have bought are things I enjoy having, and can look at them.  The stamps are always fun to collect, even if a lot of them are Canadian and not American.  The same with the coins of late, the Canadian coins just look more interesting than the US offerings.  As for the casino chips, I really, REALLY need to hit the brakes.  The last purchase was for a set of chips from this one casino with Mucha artwork on each chip.   These are fairly hot chips as a collectible, but I snagged them at a fairly good value (as usual.)  One place wanted $35 per chip... I don't think so.

Ah well... enough of my ramblings...

Hold onto your wallet then. This years 1/25 ounce gold from Canada is the Wolf (using the same design as last year's 1/2 ounce silver). It's a tiny coin - the smallest Gold the RCM makes, only 13.92 mm across with a 50 cent face value. It's not available on the public site yet, and it's still in presale, but it's price is C$81.95.

I know. I've seen the coin advertised, the lowest price was like $70US for the coin. I'm tempted. I'm really, really, really tempted...
