Weekly Photo Challenge: Treasure

Silvercoins including Olympic dollars
Canadian silver treasure including Olympic dollars

Love is in the air because today is after all, the treasured Saint Valentine’s day. This fact certainly migitates this week’s theme influencing many into showing pictures of loved ones or something related to love as their treasure.

I could have followed the herd however, our theme is “TREASURE” and instead, because presently the Sochi Olympics are happening, chose to use this picture after discovering a prized set of Olympic and other Canadian and American silver coins that I inherited and somehow forgot about.

The Montreal Olympics were in 1976 and I have this set of proof silver coins from then along with two really old coins from the turn of the last century, and lots of other silver.
