”Blackbirds tend to like shiny things.” ~ The Bloody Raven

For the past few months, I have been divesting my holding of those cute Dogey coins. Personally, I never thought they would be worth more than a fiat nickel at best and when it got there, I’d sell off $1000 of it and put 50% of that into silver bullion and 50% into Hive, Leo tokens and the remaining Doge left in my cold wallet. That was the plan.

When the Dogecoin price blew far past my nickel target I had to change my plan and set my sights much higher. The windfall had suddenly met a few longer termed goals that I never thought possible at this time. A few goals that I had originally made when I first signed on to Steem /Hive. I’ll elaborate on those in later posts.

For now, have I got an exotic treat for you today.

From HK Colonial Coins…

Po Sang Gold Smith 10 Tael Silver Bar

Top; Left- Po Sang Great Wall stamp, Right- Purity Stamp
Purity Stamp Text; 99.9% FINE SILVER 10 TAELS
Wt.= 10 Tael or 12.15 Troy Oz.
100mm x 39.5mm x 9.6mm

So, why this Bar?

HKCC
I have some Asian ancestry in me as my grandparent is Chinese and came to Canada to flee Communism. They had a gainful life living in a large home compound with a productive tract of land that had been in the family for many generations until the Communists took over at gun point. To add, their father was a Gold Smith by trade before his crooked partner swindled him out of the business.



He still had a stash of silver coin that he gave his son and daughter to emigrate to Canada and make a life for themselves and planned to sponsor the rest of the family over at some later date. Unfortunately, he passed away before coming to Canada.

Therefore, this silver bar would represent that part of my ancestry that I know very little about. We never knew what the name of his Gold Smith business my great grandparent originally founded and may well not be likely the Po Sang Gold Smith business itself. Perhaps they didn’t want to relive old wounds.

Oh, I how I wish I paid better attention at the dinner table.

Cool Vintage Chinese silver bar huh? We won't see too many of these in North America and is now inducted into my Permastack as a reminder to my descendants of their ancestral heritage.

And for our second feature of Exotic Silver

Lee Cheong 1 Tael 37.7g and 15g poured Silver Buttons

1 Tael (37.7g) Button; Lee Cheong Gold Dealers, Ship Logo, 999
and 15g Button; Sailing Ship Logo
Private Mintage, Backs are blank.

The Ship Logo represents the Chinese Gold and Silver exchange Society in Hong Kong. It is a physical Gold exchange and has been in business for 110 years and it is by no means a small operation having 171 corporate members ranging from banks, bullion merchants, large jewelers, gold refineries, to financial Institutions, and with that has a key economic and advisory role in the Economy of Hong Kong and in the region.

Reputably, only a handful of these exist.

But the actual quantity is undocumented. This Tael is 38.56g

A further note of credit where due is Nyssacat373 as he referred me to HK Colonial Coins in finding that special piece that is well beyond the ordinary stacking fare.
It had to be special.

I should not be surprised anymore but he did it again, Nyssacat373 also purchased and included the 15g (Actually 15.11g) Lee Cheong button in my shipment. 💋 Again, that is so sweet of you Nyssacat373 so what else do you have planned?
