    The coins in the last grading are moving through the system at a reasonable pace. They will only be available to review and know grades when all the tiers are completed and then the system will say "finalised" and this is the stage they take pics etc..
     

    If you are interesting in sending any coins in for the next grading then the cut off at the moment is 10th April so there is still a little more time.

    I had to laugh at this one. Some idiot from Greece who is selling fake Perth mint coins is trying to big up the price because the fake coin has a mint error LOL
    As an aside I have reported all his fakes

    A nice coin but a little disappointing. The frosting doesn't show as much detail as I hoped for. The coin feels a little cheap which it certainly isn't lol

    Check that the scratch is not on the capsule, the capsules unscrew, if it is on the coin send it back, RM are very good when you send coins back. Although it would be better if they checked coins properly before dispatching to collectors.

    Good morning. I bought the Queen's Beasts dragon 1/4 gold coin, graded MS70 ER. (Update sold out quickly.)
    MCM put it online and they sell it for a very good price. Also the 1oz gold coin, but can't afford it.
    Catch it as long the Americans are still sleeping. ;-)

    Bought a RMB red dragon 1/4 in the capsule. Continues my series without massive expense. If it has issues will send it back till I get one that's gradeable. ...

    @Kman That old chestnut LOL, personally as I don't collect the £1 coins I wouldn't like to say one way or the other, but if any £1 coin was going to be a flipper this being the 1st of the new coins I would say it would be the one to go for.
    The problem being with the price being high to start with for all the guys obsessed with the spot price of silver its a risky one for the flippers.

    Low mintage does not mean desirable, you need a number of things, desirability, rarity, quality/credibility & demand from collectors, I've had a look at the coins shown & have zero interest in purchasing any of them at any price. There are numerous private mints minting similar sets/series some of which are interesting to collectors some are not. But very few if any of the private mints have anything that appeals to serious collectors. The exception to that is maybe some Chinese medals minted by private mints.
     
    This has all the above & is hugely sought after by collectors worldwide.
