Finished My Shilling By Monarch Set Today 20/20!

I also took the #1 spot on the registry!

I'm going to be lazy here and just share the images and link to my set. I'll also link the prior thread where I discuss the coins in detail. Hope y'all enjoy seeing it complete.

    Wowee ! :)

    I manage money. I earn money. I save money .
    I give away money. I collect money.
    I don’t love money . I do love the Lord God.

    What’s next?

    Honestly, I don't know but I am not in a hurry to start something new. I suspect I will get a few upgrades for this set in time but it is far too financially demanding a set for me to want to do something similar again.

    There's some interesting pieces I could expand this one to. Henry VIII Testoon, Milled Elizabeth Shilling, Charles I Briot Milled Issue, Commonwealth Shilling, Cromwell Shilling, Hammered Charles II shilling. Even a pine tree shilling would get an honorable spot if I could afford a nice one haha. But something just as daunting as this was, is not currently in my plans.

    And the age-old question…. Save it or sell it?

    Luckily, I’ll never finish my sets, so I’ll never have to sell them.

    I have changed my mind a lot since I started back collecting and how I choose to handle my collection. So I can't predict how I will feel in the future.

    At this moment I've no intention to sell this. I am very proud of it and love the width of history it encompasses and the numismatic history it shows as well. I think as a collector it's important to me to have worked to assemble something that feels significant at least once. I will keep this as evidence of what I can do and likely going forward I'll be buying a lot cheaper coins that I find a passing interest and not focusing so much on producing more high grade sets.

    I'd say you are in danger of becoming a numismatist vs. a collector. Well done.

    Nicely done, that's a fun set to look at.

    Thanks for sharing your set and accomplishment! The coins looks wonderful together. I know they’re slabbed and will stay that way, but it would be amazing to see them in an old style English coin cabinet.
    How long did it take you to finish?

    I started the set March 8th of 2020. So not long all things considered.
