    I used to colour tone ASEs and sell them on eBay - making it clear that its artificial toning of course! - and used to add a few quid to each - they sold well. I have never tried antiquing fluid though. Its on my list. Right now I have tried eggs and liver of sulphur.

    there are loads of videos on youtube, but takes a fair amount of trial and error to start getting it right.

    its a bit silly isn't , if you use topcashback on royal mint u get 55.68 and u can have free exchange if there is any problem 
    however, topcaashback sometimes doesn't track

    Also there are very few dragons in captivity so most estimates of their tail length are best guesses

    I was expecting it to look abit more fierce than that. Definitely the worst design so far in the series.

    AlphaBeast reacted to PansPurse in Visiting Japan   
    So, I might possibly be visiting Japan later this year and was wondering whether I could/should pick up something shiny.
    What Japanese bullion/coins are available? Is there any red tape I'd need to sort out to purchase any? Are there import/export issues with bringing PMs from Japan to the UK? Would anyone like me to pick something up for them if/when I go?

    In reply to the questions earlier:-

    I purchased the coins direct from the Perth Mint. I placed the order last week (Friday) over the phone and once payment cleared received an email and collected them from the Perth Mint bullion team (note I live in Perth).
    I understand they can also be ordered online however the countries they supply to are very limited (not UK and USA).
    The silver coins can be bought either in a Perth Mint plastic flip (only the individual price) or in tubes. The coin in the photos came in the plastic flip and I am very happy with the condition. No issues.

    Sorry I don't have calapers but did measure it with a measuring tape. I have downloaded a photo below, it looks to be to be 3mm. 
     
    I have also included a photo of the silver next to the gold.

    I've got one of them, thats partly what gives me concerns about the Chiwoo as the Gallus has a nice consistant finish to it, the Chiwoo is all over the place.

    I have 2 x 2017 and they are both the same, shiny/matt.
    The face on the obverse seems to be shiny with matted surrounding and the reverse with the figure seems to be a mix of both shiny/matt.

    Thanks, this sets my mind at ease a bit, I've been standing in front of a window tilting this medal back and forth for about 10 mins now convinced someone has taken a pencil eraser to it.  I've just ordered my 2017 from Martin.

    I have 2017 and know what you mean. I initially thought it was milk but apparently, that is how it's meant to me (according to Martin at Silvertrader).
    Guess you have put my mind at ease by saying same about the 2016! lol - Am waiting for my 2016 to be delivered! Looks like an amazing series!
    If anything, if it does spot, it might be harder to spot that it has spotted! lol
