I gathered it all together for a pic. It is not much compared to what a lot have. But it makes me smile to hold it none the less.

61 troy oz silver
4.8 g gold
1 g platinum

I give Isle of Mann Cats to my sister for Xmas.
They're cute, they have kitties on them.

The Australian Lunars are attractive too.

Cool, OP.

ETA: I always hear about people buying gold, but I never see it. I think a lot of them just hold certificates.

Brass isn't nearly as worth while as silver. But I guess if you have enough of it.

They're running about 2.2 cents these days.

2oz. Gold Eagles, 20oz. Silver Eagles, 3.8oz pure gold chemically refined from scrap jewelry, 8oz. pure silver from various sources melted together into three pieces (bottom), and 1oz. pure iridium (top right)
Not pictured are silver dimes and quarters with a face value of about $2.00.

Worth about $8500.

I bought the iridium on eBay for $700 back when iridium was at $450/oz (it was expensive because it is an extremely pure arc furnace-melted display piece). Now it's up to $700/oz.

Here's the thread about my adventures with refining gold: http://www.ar15.com/archive/topic.html?b=1&f=5&t=965388

I was just reading that each of those bars weighs 40 pounds. Guys get their fingers broken sometimes handling them.

Some say that a good number of those bars are 99% tungsten and 1% gold. I'm trying to figure out if it's just an urban legend or what.

I thought the gold covered tungsten bars were sold to the Chinese.

Brass, as depicted, will always trade for silver and gold in one way or another .

The reverse is not dependable. I guess I'd want to be the guy with the brass (and all that implies) in a transaction like that.

most likely they are 400 oz bars = 27 pounds each.
One bar at today's spot price would be worth $500,000
