    Kman got a reaction from CadmiumGreen in Found some old coins in my late, great Aunts belongings   
    My great aunt passed away last month, was helping my mum go through her bits and pieces today
    Thought you guys might like to see the coins
    The pennies are cleaned, the others (and my mums kitchen table) obviously aren't. 
    Not sure if there's any value here, probably not, maybe you guys could let me know

    This one by my reckoning is a Louis XVI 2 sols coin

    1879 Sydney - C over O in VICTORIA
    This is recorded as a variety in the Quartermaster collection and then later in the Bentley collection, but it's more likely to me that it's a die flaw, will have a better look with scope on second pass!
    Regardless it's a nice example apart from the edge nick, valued at 7000 in McDonald catalog as only a few examples known to exist

    yeah PM's aren't just PM's when made into collectable designs, you enter a whole new market where spot price becomes mostly unimportant
    I think most do a bit of both, strictly stackers are rare
    People who like the idea of having PMs quickly like the idea of having nice designs and rare numismatic pieces; PM's are rare, but rare PM coins are rarer and rarity vs demand is value
    Flipping premium coins is also a good way to add on the oz's if you're stacking
    They just work hand in hand well together

    What a coin.... 🤗😍
    1853 Proof, nothing much more to say but wow! 
    I suspect many don't even know this rarity even exists, very very few in existence now. 
    Pictures (especially from phone) don't do it any justice, so I will do a 4k video at some point so others can enjoy it

    Nice design, has kind of a generic American feel to it? I don't have the artistic knowledge to describe why, just reminds me of modern US coin design. Maybe it's the sun rays
    Nice, but safe

    I worked at Somerfield for a couple years 17-19 on the till and some fruit you weigh, some you put an amount, lemons and limes I always forgot you have to put the amount not weigh them
    The local Chinese resteraunt had a guy buy about 10 lemons, I only charged him for one, he came back in 2 minutes later to his credit and said hey I only paid for one? I said yes, my mistake all yours 
    I was very generous with Somerfields produce

    I bet Atkinsons don't honour anyone lucky enough. It would be worth the comedy value seeing their faces when they realised multiple orders were going through

    They shouldn't really be allowed to label it as a sovereign, it's misleading.
