Hi All, new here, these are some of my coins that  were sent to be graded, tested with five first (I noticed that some of these certified image captures have the cert# off on many of the posts, so I went and did the same), please have a look:

I recently bought this one from the Royal Canadian Mint, it was interesting for a couple of reasons.  First, I have an affinity for coins featuring trains and ships, and this one features two different views of the ship, coming and going so to speak, which I thought was interesting and well executed.  The second reason, is that although this ship is now in Canada, it used to be a museum in Saugatuck, Michigan, where I toured the ship before it was moved back in 2012, so I've actually been onboard this exact ship.

Love this new little minor silver coin I got from a PCGS forum member.

For those of you who like history, this little coin was issued by Ernest August, Duke of Brunswick-Lüneburg (1661-1692) and after this coin was issued, later the Elector-designate of Hanover. If you follow British lineage at all, Ernest August was the father of the eventual George I of Great Britain. He was married to Sophia of the Palatinate - an heir through the Stuart line of the British royal family. All of the Hanover line of British Regents from George I through Queen Victoria were descendants of Ernest August.

As for the coin - it is a two year type (1681 and 1686). The Mariengroschen is a division unit of the Hanover Thaler. There were 36 Mariengroschen to the Thaler - thus this coin had a value of 1/9 of a Thaler.

The legends read:

SOLA BONA QUAE HONESTA - The only good things are those which are honorable.

ERN:AUG.D.G.EP:OSN.D.B.&L. - Ernest Augustus, by the grace of God, Bishop of Osnabrück, Duke of Brunswick and Lüneburg.
