  1. I've only ever had the mobile phone £1 in that technology set. The 50p has a computer on it.
  2. Hello and welcome!!
  3. It could be too late to submit. Live auction fees do make ebay appear reasonable though.
  4. Well you've heard of fat-fingering. This time I totally missed the keyboard.
  5. I could be worth seeing if you have any live coin auctions coming up near you.
  6. I think down because the pound may go up. Let's meet in the middle and say nowt happens.
  7. @Numistacker I may have something to include if you send for an NGC Ancient submission. I have something which one expert said it looked genuine but when they got a second opinion it came back as 'doesn't seem right'. Sending it to the US for a third opinion may be a good idea.
  8. I'd quite like them to release an Article 50p
  9. If you are just collecting them for fun then I would stick to collecting them at face value. Some presentation packs do well especially if they are declared as a low mintage. Personally I don't like paying more than £2 for a £2 coin that is base metal.
  10. https://www.thesun.co.uk/news/3133095/valuable-5-pound-note-jane-austen-circulation-plastic-fiver/ If this turns out to be true the serial number would be useful.
  11. Hello Scrogit. You don't need to be a premium member to list in the trade section. It just means that they aren't viewable to non-premium members straight away. As you are a new member it is likely that any potential buyers will ask to pay by paypal goods for added protection (unless you were to post the item first to trusted members).
  12. @creative see the thread. Threads merged.
  13. What happens if the box is too big for your hole?
  14. Say for a single coin. I would put it in a small bag. You can get these cheap in bulk off ebay. For added protection (especially if capsuled) I will tape that bag to a piece of bubble and wrap it around. I'd then tape that to a piece of card and then use another piece of card to sandwich it. I would tape that up and put it in a bubble envelope. This should qualify as a large letter. You can get Royal Mail size guides from ebay to test the width of your letter before going to the post office.
  15. You will if the monthly prize draws keep rolling over.
