    They're both nice coins, but, Lady Liberty is much more attractive than the Queen of England.

    That's because Liberty is a fictional character.

    Betty and Veronica are the same age as the QoE...but they still look great in bikinis!




    Hmmmm...anyone find any B&V silver rounds out there?

    Actually she's also Queen of Canada, which is a separate title distinct from her day job over in Britain. If England were to be a republic again, she would still be Queen of Canada, Queen of Australia, etcetera, because those are titles of the respective countries and the British government has no say in them.

    Getting back to the subject at hand though, I prefer Maple Leafs. As noted above in this thread, people will generally stick to the coin of their country.

    Eagles and Maple leafs both have their comparative pros & cons.

    1. Each enjoys legal tender status and is most recognized, desirable, and sought in it's own nation.

    2. Silver & Gold Eagles are not pure. As a result they are able to stand the rigors of circulation if ever called to serve in that capacity. The down side is that in order to extract the pure silver/gold they contain, they have to be refined...and this entails time and cost.

    3. On the other hand, Maples and are pure gold and silver. And as such only require melting to acquire their pure metal to fabricate some other form. The down side of purity is softness. Unlike Eagles, Maples leafs will not work in circulation because they will VERY quickly become deformed and probably unreconizable.

    My 2-cents conclusion: DYOD. A person should DTOD and choose coins that are best suited to their now and future world view. Nobody has a crystal ball...that's why many folks diversify. I believe that the future of the nations that make up N. America and then S. America, will see a "Union" with a common currency. And N. American currency by whatever name will be represented by the readily recognized symbol "$", because it currrently stands for the "dollar" in Canada and the U.S., and the "Peso" in Mexico.

    Ceteris paribus in terms of silver content, but for durability ASE as it can hold up to circulation whereas the Maple will wear very quickly, but the Maple has a more impressive lustre and shine when in uncirculated condition, Maples are got cheaper than ASE's in terms of price, design? Don't really prefer one or the other, a big leaf with a ugly queen head or the American seal with a woman in an oversized dress? Neither are my favorites but if there was a big stack of Maples in front of me and a big stack of ASEagles and I had to choose, ummmmmm, I would probably grab the Maples, just dazzled by the stronger glow and shine, and then regret it later because the ASE is undoubtedly the superior coin in the long term.
