I’ve got a brother in Canada who’s a retired lifeguard. He owned a yacht but found it similarly too expensive to keep and ended up selling it. Three of my coins incidentally are shipwreck coins. Two are a gold Brazilian and British sovereign coin salvaged from the RMS Douro which sunk in a collision in 1882. I managed to acquire the old Douro Cargo auction catalogue redolent of smoke-filled auction houses of the 90s. The other coin is not a shipwreck coin as such but a quarter ounce silver Britannia coin struck in 2014 from a silver ingot salvaged from the SS Gairsoppa which was torpedoed by a German U-Boat in 1941.

I've worked up the courage to participate with this light hearted picture
of me trying to decide where to spend my ancient coin money

The surf seems to be getting more and more crowded every year but I am not nearly as grouchy as I look (this is actually my happy face!).
