    Frenchie reacted to Lr103 in Britannia proof COA without number   
    @kimchi's suggestion is what I had in mind...just ask them if non-numbered COAs were ever issued for this coin.  For example, the limited edition presentation for this coin was 600, but the maximum mintage was 1,350.  It could be that in 2014 these were the non-limited edition COAs and it was included with your raw coin by mistake.
    I've learned that the the Royal Mint does in fact have different COAs for the limited edition presentation, and the mintage above this number, as I have one from each group for some of the Queen's Beasts.  They all have numbers however.

    Chiwoo Cheonwang 2018. After two delayed launch dates, finally got them and picked up today. Significantly different from the vivid painting effect as shown in the marketing pictures, but looking from different angles, change in the light reflection presents interesting contrasts.

    Frenchie reacted to swAgger in 2018 St Helena - Spade Guinea   

    Another one here from the St Helena/East India Company partnership. This time the Spade Guinea.
    Liking this one. Low price bullion. I'm seeing GS stating mintage of 10k, but LPM not saying. I would wonder if GS have that correct and it is much higher, considering the launch price? Will no doubt be loose, too, probably not capsuled at the price.... so there's that to consider (again they don't say). I very much like they are using the Maklouf head!, and also all the lettering being incused, patterned background looks well too. Very attractive coin.
     
     
    One thing i am slightly confused about is why another? There was another bullion coin they issued several months back. Also dated for 2018. (shrug). That one i've seen or heard nothing much about. It was the Guinea also, but it featured the "rose shield" instead of the "spade". And 1.25oz weight. Whatever, the 1oz above is widely available anyway.

    Hello all, package arrived in the post today from Noble Numistatics. This was my only successful bid in their April auction that was held in   Sydney over three days. Bought the 1952 South African 11 coin proof set. They had two sets available in the auction and I think I paid a fair price for it given condition. As you can see from the photos there are some condition issues with respect to copper spotting (the King seems to be staring at it on the £1 coin!) but I think they will come out of conservation ok if I have them graded in the future. 
    I saw a Numistacker YouTube video on this set a few months ago and I recall he said the mintage was 12,500. 
    A bit disappointed about how they packaged the coins. They were loose and had moved about in the case during transit and were not in flips.

    Wet day in Perth today and so dropped into the mint and bought the new 1oz silver bird of paradise coin. See photos below. Took a look at the gold version which is much nicer but will give that one a miss for now (the gold have a 5,000 mintage and so will be available for a while yet).

    I guess most coins like this are melted down, but I find it interesting nonetheless.
    Engraving reads "mother to george 1856", no mounts or anything so not sure what the purpose of it would have been?

    Today I received a 1/4 ounce Gold Britannia. Just steadily adding to the very modest stack, not very interesting you might think.
    But the journey DHL managed to send it on is the real story...longest route from Bristol to Cambridge ever?
