    More information about the mints they come from, the history and the minting process etc. Nobody ever goes into detail about where they come from. They just mention the name of the mint, the coin, and that is all.

    Few shields, camera focus is on the dates as i would like some opinions on the below!
    1859 has an "8" over something, a strange clipped "1" and a die crack.
    1852 has a very odd 2.

    Final delivery of the day from DHL.
    Been wanting to pick up the 1oz Griffin for a couple of weeks.  Was going to pickup from Chards but that didn't happen.  Was going to buy from Bairds but then RMB had a sale.  Worked out a little cheaper than from Bairds and with a screw capsule as well.  Rehoused in a ringed cap to go in the coin box with the others.

    Some more 1g gold notes.
    2017 Year of the Rooster from the Agricultural Bank of China.  Comes with fancy packaging but I didn't get the bag though.
    2016 Year of the Monkey.  I think this may be from one of the regional philatelic branches/divisons of China Post.  Going to ask our resident Chinese expert to translate the COA 
    2017 CGCI Year of the Chicken (can't really say rooster for this design).  This is the 1g gold to match the 8g silver I got last week.  10k mintage on the gold whereas the silver is 60k.  Quite a big difference.

    I bought a 1/10 Brit from HGM, just because I wanted to have some gold to fondle. Annoyingly it was a 2006 Proof so I can't fondle it! But chuffed none the less

    A couple of days ago Atkinsons had in a mixed date Panda for a little over 3% over spot.  I thought it would be one of the newer years but thought I'd ask the year anyway in case it is an older one and they didn't have time to make a separate listing.  Normally they list individual years for the older stuff.  Asked in web chat and they got back to me a couple of hours later and it was a 2008.  2008 for 3.3%, why not!
    Came in a scruffy cap so that's been replaced.

  20. Oldun liked a post in a topic by NewMSmatist15 in Worth it? - The Britannia 2017 Brilliant Uncirculated Coin   
    Thanks for the perspective - I generally don't like proof coins (some exceptions) since I feel they target collectors and are marked up well beyond what they should be even if the coin is a low mintage one. I do agree they can be flipped and earn some profit if that is what you are doing. In defense of the Britannia: There was a 2011 "Matte" Britannia where only 2337 were struck, a 2014 mule error where the obverse was struck with the lunar series die and is missing the denticles of the typical Britannia obverse, and in 2015 and 2016 a "Plain Fields" version of the Britannia where only 10,000 were minted each. None of these are proofs, and sure they are bullion coins, but they are interesting and they have a story. I own all, and all are slabbed, and while I didn't pay NGC myself to slab them I don't mind buying them that way. My only comment would be give the Britannia a chance...they are wonderful to collect and I enjoy them very much.

    It was bad, but not too bad if that makes sense. I really fancied it and it looked in good condition. Christmas 2017 may be cancelled however...

  23. Oldun liked a post in a topic by Madstacks in Newbie - What should i buy   
    For liquidity you cannot beat gold sovereigns, they are hands down the easiest item to shift , recognised the world over and affordable compared to lets say a 1oz gold coin. They also have much lower buying and selling premium than silver. Golds had a nice run and the price has gone up significantly and that's worth bearing in mind, but for liquidity sovereigns are unbeatable.

    1883(s) full sov shield (like the condition)
    2012 half proof sov (full proof too expensive :/ )
