My Canadian Silver #4 - 1 Dollar 1978, Commonwealth Games

And the Australian silver coin saga continues! This one was minted in 1978 and even comes in a sexy leather case !

Let's open it up!

Woah! Who would have thought! Another with Elizabeth! 😆

Ok let's get this bad girl out! As a sidenote I must warn you, this coin has a mirror like finish, I tried my bestest best to capture its beauty but even getting the details right was almost impossible. I must say it looks way way better from up close!

Let's take a closer peak:

As you can see from the photos, this commemorative dollar is dedicated to the 1978 Commonwealth Games held in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada from 3 to 12 August 1978. Actually I had never heard of the commonwealth games, and I would probably never had if it wasn't for this coin! Learning new stuff with random silver coins is fun ^_^

And I love how they fitted all the sports in the reverse side!

Silverwise, the coin weights 23.3276 g, but unfortunately it's made from 0.500 silver. Wish it was more but oh well... It's a real beauty so I won't complain much!

Here are some more details from numista if you are interested:

And here's how it fares to the other silver Australian pieces I have covered, along with a regular boring euro coin:

That's some top notch Queen Eli porn if you ask me!

Commonwealth Games, I have the same coin.

A good one.

And the Eli porn on the back is the only reason I collect those coins.

Some good wine, candlelight + Eli coins is always a lot of fun!

Wow, that coin is fancy AF! Also, I believe that only the English would create their own version of the Olympics, just to add cricket and squash. Commonwealth Boredom IMO😂

This is quite a beauty due to specimen finish and I like sports signages on the obverse. It is available in SP-65, SP-66, and SP-67. Special shine and mirror like finish is due to mixing it with special alloys.

I fully understand the difficulty in getting a clean detail shot of coins with such a nice shiny mirror finish. I still have some coins that have the same issue I have yet to share until I've solved this Photo problem. The 1964 Dollar has the full matte finish that also obscures the details.

Thanks for the show @trumpman

Such a beautiful coin. I love how the sports are fitted behind too. This is one of the best in your collection if you ask me. Or atleast one of my favorites.
