  1. 1887 British Coins -- Preparing for Grading

    The reason for the design change on the sixpence is that people were gilding the shield version and trying to pass them off as half sovereigns. You may want to search "infamous 1887 sixpence". You might think that the withdrawn version would be more valuable than the replacement but I am not sure that is the case. Your search may well throw up threads on the replacement as well and if so you will see that they have a bit of a following.
  2. 2017 Britannia proof

    No-one likes it So no-one will buy it So it will be rare So it will become valuable So we should all buy it now But then it won't be rare - or valuable So don't buy it. Help?
  3. who really knows

    Just curious - how do you check a coin when it is in a slab? Is it more than just looking up the number on the website?
  4. 2017 Britannia proof

    I did not think anyone could come up with a design I liked less than the 2011 but they have managed it. Maybe it will look better in real life than in a picture?
  5. Capsules for Britannia silver coin

    I have bought some on here from Morezone. Search for air-tite capsules or send him a PM. I think Britannias changed size around 2012 so you'll either want 39 or 40.6 but he'll know that better than me.
  6. GOLD DEALS - See a deal, post here :)

    George III Sovereigns are all gone now
  7. 1929 Chinese coin

    If it is real and rare then OK (though enormously expensive just the same) but when you look up the certificate on the NGC verification page it says possible counterfeit holder - now who would put a real coin in a counterfeit holder? It was sold as a facsimile not a real one.
  8. 1929 Chinese coin

    This coin came up for auction today. It was described as a facsimile and estimated at £100 to £150. It sold for £14000! So if anyone has one lying around ....
  9. Roman and Greek coins

    Looking for something else I stumbled on this forum which may be of interest.http://www.forumancientcoins.com/board/index.php?board=27.0;wap2 The link is to threads for Newbies but there is lots else From a brief look at one of the threads on silver washing it seems to be populated with alarmingly knowledgeable people. They could perhaps take some design lessons from this site.
  10. Roman and Greek coins

    Sorry DNW is Dix Noonan Webb. I had a look and find it is just an auction of bronze coins and some of them are more expensive than the gold one you mentioned. There are plenty of other auction houses so perhaps just search for the sort of coin you want and see what comes up.
  11. Roman and Greek coins

    There is a place called Coincraft opposite the British Museum in London which has a lot of Roman (and Greek?) coins. I don't know how it compares for prices. When I was in there some time ago they had tub of very crude Roman coins for not much money but they were in a very poor condition. Also if you look at auctions there is an auction of Roman coins coming up at DNW. Personally I know only that I know nothing. But some of the fakes were made in Victorian times so they are antiques in their own right.
  12. Perth Mint Lunar II Series

    Many thanks @arshimo2012
  13. Fake Gold in PCGS slab on ebay

    The certificate number relates to a 1927 $20. Do they use the same number for different dates of the same coin?
  14. Perth Mint Lunar II Series

    well I asked the Mint when it might be coming but they could not tell me. They did say they had a lot of new coins coming out in February but that what they would be is secret at the moment. I see the 2017 Koala has hit the shelves so maybe that is one of them.
