  1. These are in the same vein as the Congo SIlverbacks that Scottsdale did last year. The samples seemed to be of a very good quality and there's certainly some novelty value for using the Cayman Islands, especially with Liz's mugshot on the back. One ounce only
  2. These were really nice coins and certainly have potential I think. Obviously have to tread carefully with information, but the impression I got was that there may be different designs if this one is successful.
  3. Launched a couple of hours ago, there are 1 oz silver (250,000 mintage) and 1oz gold (25,000) true bullion coins. The pictures on site aren't great but I've just had these in hand in Berlin and they're really nice coins, far better than the crappy pictures in the article. I've taken some better pictures and they should be up on site later tonight. These are spot+ priced coins and prices will depend on dealer markup. Really nice coin and I can't see this not getting huge interest. http://agaunews.com/niue-2017-steamboat-willie-disney-bullion-coin/
  4. I think the reflection is fine to be honest. It's one of several images in a series including the Rooster coins, it's an official image and there are no signs of photoshopping outside of the privy mark. I thinks it's nothing more than the 2017 Britannia image with the privy marks put on, possibly because actual privy coins weren't ready but they wanted to launch with the lunars.
  5. I had a good look at the original file. I think the coin image is a genuine one, but the privy mark has been photoshopped in. It could actually be that this is the image for the 2017 Britannia and they just modded it for the A-Mark lunar privy variant.
  6. It does look odd. Probably done it because it shares the obverse with the lunar. Hopefully they will put the starburst on the obverse as well next year. As the date is carried on the reverse face, they don't need to change the obverse often, so likely done for cost reasons.
  7. Yes, the radiating pattern field. The privy is irrelevant, just the reason these images came out from the mint. Those are actual coin images, so not an artists take. I tried to extract a full view from that image and you can see the difference.
  8. It is tentative and taken from a single official image, but I did a double-take and noticed a nice difference. Far better look in my opinion. Was always a beautiful coin, but this is the best look yet I think. AgAUNEWS article
  9. Have managed to source some beautiful images of the silver coin. Just waiting on an ok to use them.
  10. As has been said above, the coin is 91.67% gold and 8.33% copper. The coin weighs 33.93g of which 31.1g (1 troy ounce) would be pure gold.
  11. http://agaunews.com/2017-krugerrand-expands-gold-range-adds-silver-platinum-coins/ A monster fifty ounce gold version and platinum also.
  12. It's a nice coin in hand. I do prefer it to the Angel personally.
  13. Great looking coin. Good finish, reverse-proof, 50k mintage. Premium not bad either. http://agaunews.com/agaushoot-pobjoys-cool-new-pegasus-reverse-proof-bullion-coin/
  14. Looks a nice, if familiar design. No silver yet but I did a mockup which should be accurate http://agaunews.com/2016-somali-elephant-bullion-coin-breaks-cover-at-long-last/
  15. That APMEX round is pretty nice. A lot of mints have missed the mark this year. I like the NZ Mint one, even if the monkey looks unhappy.
