I use a Nikon D700 digital SLR to take the picture without its flash. The light come from my table lamp and not to shine directly to the coin as it could cause reflection, snap the picture from certain angle to ensure the reflection of the coin does not reflect back yourself. And you must have a steady hand when taking pictures in low lights.

Cheers!

Hello DiggingNorway

Your coin from the "Auspicious Matters" series is one of 11, silver and gold coins from the 1997 issue. In 1998 there were 5 coins in the series and in 1999 there were 3 coins in the series. I also like this series but think that it was not very popular, western collectors don't appreciate the symbolism.

best regards
