The two hyperinflation signature sets.

The Box with the Traveller's Checks is now sealed up and the postage is on it and it is now ready to go to PMG!

This got me in the mood / excited to do a bit of tweaking: I added a note and link in the description for "Gradually, Then Suddenly" to my coin set on the NGC side. That set still only has a dime in it but I'm actively working on changing that now with a planned submission. I have coins! I just have to pick the coins to go in to NGC.

I also went back and changed "ZIMUNL" to "ZIM101" through "ZIM104" for the newer notes, since they're now listed that way in the competitive sets.

Better yet, I took the skeleton, the bones, of a Venezuelan Hyperinflation signature set that I'd made about 6 months ago and started filling that out with more than just Pick numbers.

This has me getting very excited and happily building and writing and tweaking descriptions again and... this is getting me pumped to start trying to fill out some of those holes in the Soberanos set. lol 

I thought I'd be here sooner, but it feels good to come back to it after a break and feel that energy and feel pumped again. It's time to build the Venezuelan set into a proper brother for the Zimbabwean set. :D

Great job with this set!

I just checked out your NGC coin sets and can see you have a very diverse range including some Aussie sets! 👏😊

If you mean the Venezuelan set, I feel like I'm much more torn on how to approach it than I ever was with the Zimbabwe set because I feel very torn on how to use the set description / note descriptions to balance two wants that are competing with each other.

On one hand I want to do deep dives into that was going on around the time the note(s) came out and putting the note releases is their context. On the other hand I really want to go into the historical figures on each note and the endangered animals on each note. The Zimbabwean notes never had people on them so there was no person to bio and my blurbs about what was on the back tended to be shorter - like some of my blurbs about the animals. But I don't feel like I can have historical information, biographical information and talk about the animals on each note and have it not be excessively overwhelming. So I'm trying to strike a balance.

I'm thinking:

- the Set Description will become something talking about collecting hyperinflation notes similar to what I have in the Zimbabwean set

- P-88 to P-93 will focus on the economic history and the backdrop of the notes being released

- P-94 to P-99 will be about what's on the notes, but each will note about what that note was worth in US dollars when released / announced (it tweren't much!)

- P-100 will go back to the historical context and the switch from Fuertes to Soberanos

- P-101 to P-108 will focus on the people animals and places again.

- P-109 to P-114 will place more emphasis on the economic history and the advance to the hyperinflation timeline.

If I can make that work in a way that feels good I think I'll finally be happy with it. lol

Australia has a lot of 1 oz NCLT with cool designs and when I was younger that silver NCLT was almost my sole focus. I've moved on to other things over the years in part because I just do not have the time or the budget to keep up with the many many many NCLT series out there and trying and failing was bumming me out. Lol

Hey that’s why it’s your set...I feel you should do what makes you feel good and not overthink it. If you wanted to go into detail of both animals and historical figures maybe space them out and label them?!

maybe something like: 

- Simon Bolivar -

un excerpt about him...

- Sea Turtle -

This note is part of my growing set on turtles 🐢 

I actually was just watching a video from Drew Binsky on Facebook called I tried to exchange $100 in Venezuela. I failed. I tried to post the link but it didn’t let me. It’s an interesting insight into the Bolivares and how difficult they are to actually get your hands on worth a watch if you haven’t already seen it!

And with the Aussie silver Oz coins I hear you...We get issues that are even available for sale at our local post offices and there is some amazing designs and themes, but there is just way too many to collect and you would need limitless resources if you wanted to try and keep up!! 😅 I often get asked if I collect Australia and as much as I would love to I would never be happy as I would never be able to even partially complete it! 
 

I’ve added some photos from our trip to the Perth Mint where most of those proof issues come from about 5 years ago....there you can see what would no doubt be one of the most expensive coins in existence the 1 tonne gold Kangaroo!

you could easily spends 1000s in the gift shop and we had a few coins custom etched for us!

Well, the "great" / helpful thing about the Bolivare Fuertes set is that it's broken into 2 6-note series that basically use the same designs in the same order. So I can use the descriptions of the 2nd series to focus on the bio information and the animals and places while I use the 1st series to focus on the history of the run-up to the hyper inflation and just say, "look at this note for more information on the people, animals and places." So I can strike a balance that way.
