    My experience ordering from Gainesville Coins was incredible from start to finish. The staff really knows their stuff and they are very patient if you have a lot of questions. Also, I had these shipped internationally. They arrived very quickly and in mint condition. They will get my business again for sure.

    This is a quality silver coin, like all coins from the Perth Mint, but I don't particularly like the design on this one. The river at the forefront of the design doesn't really look like water to me. I think some more subtle detailing would have been a better route to go. Other than that, Gainesville service is always superb, and somewhat poor design doesn't take away from the value of the coin.

    I don't know a lot about coins but I love horses and was looking for something to display in my home. A friend of mine has a collection that he displays beautifully so I started looking into coins. These coins are beautiful and look great in my living room. Gainesville was super helpful and the process of buying online was very simple. I want to get all of the Year of the Horse coins, and maybe even get a complete set of the entire Chinese Zodiac to show off when guests come over!
