Closed a pretty big business deal early last year and celebrated by buying a half-dozen small gold coins. Sent them off to NGC.

    Yep. It's not like I thought the 10 soles was really a proof. Not even sure they made one. So I was thrilled with the 67. That's a pop top, though shared with a dozen others.
    And the peso was a total victory. Pop of 4/1 IIRC.
    The ducat is a private pattern, but I think this is the highest graded across both TPGs.
    The 4 reale is a bit of a bitch, though. Especially because NGC's own plate coin is gilded copper.

    Congratulations on the grades @Weiss

    I also added some view counts to your coin safari youtbe video that details these in 3 parts.

    Shame about the non-genuine coin, its a great strike and most probably the correct gold content / weight.

    It's all about what the people want...

    Thanks, guys. Paid melt plus a few bucks for each of them.
