Texas Bullion?

#1 Unread post by dynarb »

I think I finally got all my dads coins together in one place. Amazing how many places they were stashed. Found a coin page insert practically filled at the back of a photo album. Didn't even know they existed. There were a couple nice looking Peace dollars (1922 & 1923), a couple commemorative $5 coins from 1989 for the First Men on the Moon (they do not say they are silver, but from the slight tarnishing, I'd say they are) and something I've never seen before. I'm on my phone so no pictures, but it is one toy ounce .999 fine silver 1988 The State of Texas with a CoA Official Texas Bullion. Anyone know anymore about this commemorative coin?

Am I right to think the $5 coins are silver? They do have some heft to them. Pictures available on request once I get my laptop hooked back up.

Thanks in advance for any info.

I couldn't remember how to zoom out to include the whole coin in one shot, so here is what I did take. Sorry so many.
