    Here are Perth Mint's definition of Proofs Bu's and Specimen coins,I've added a few coins to hopefully clarify things,the proofs are all on the left of the photos
     
     
    Proof Coin
    The very highest quality collectable coin produced by The Perth Mint.  Featuring a proof finish comprising a highly-polished table with frosted and/or coloured design elements.
    Bullion Coin
    A mass produced coin primarily aimed at precious metal investors. Finished with shiny design elements on a frosted table.

    Specimen Coin
    A collectable coin akin to a bullion coin with a frosted table, but also featuring one or more special numismatic treatments, including colour, gilding, antiquing, or the insertion of gems.
     
    2oz lunar 2  snake  proof and BU
     

     
    Same coins showing obverse
     

     
    1oz Lunar 2 mouse proof and Bu
     

     
    Same coins showing obverse
     

     
    1/2 oz lunar 1 rabbit proof and Bu
     

     
    Same coins showing obverse
     

     
    RAM's interpretations of proof and Bu,s also known as UNC/uncirculated.
     
    Proof
    A carefully struck coin using special dies with either a mirror‑like or matt finish. These coins are especially struck and the term is not used to describe a well‑preserved circulating coin. Proof is a method of manufacture, not a condition or grade.
      Uncirculated (UNC)
    Uncirculated coins are manufactured in much the same way as circulated coins except for the following:
    More attention and time is given to the preparation of the die surface finish, The coins are struck with greater pressure than the circulating coins to improve the sharpness of the design. More care and attention is applied at each step in the coining process to minimise damage, consequently a much lower production rate of about 30,000 coins per press per day is achieved. Uncirculated coins are packaged individually into plastic sleeves, presentation folders or occasionally presentation cases.  
    1oz 2000 proof and Bu from RAM
     

     
    Same coins obverse
     

     
    I hope this helps clarify things.

    gazer reacted to sixgun in Birmingham Silver cross with pig head, ID help please   
    Well this is Birmingham Sterling silver - the anchor denotes Birmingham Sterling silver. The Lion Passant denotes English Sterling Silver.
    The year mark is a bit confusing - the shape of the surround puts it in the 1849 - 1874 or 2000 - 2024 series. It is not the 1849 - 1874 series as the letter is lowercase - the earlier series was uppercase. i think the year mark is upside down when using the lion as the orientation reference, if you flip the year mark upside down it appears to be a lowercase a. This makes it a 2000 year piece.

    becomes this

    i don't know what this maker mark is - it would have to be a millennium period maker to fit with the date mark - it appears to be H. N & Co. Maybe someone else here has an idea.

    gazer reacted to Marc in 1966 rhodesia 10 shilling - PF66cameo- SOLD   
    This one went for more last year at London coins and was ungraded and you have to add the Buyers premium. Personally I think a beautiful coin so will leave this up until Sunday then will remove and have it sent to Japan to sell here. I do not quite understand how a modern half sov can sell for the same price or more but this has so much historical numismatic significance and represents a country which used to be the 17 richest in the world but as modern Zimbabwe is now one of the poorest.
    This one is a very nice grade and is the only one graded at this grade. Most of these coins were melted down by Mugabe's wife grace and used as bathroom fixtures and although one can appreciate she has added to the aesthetics of her bathroom, for me it would be like taking a proof 1893 £5 and putting under your shoe and scraping along the pavement. I am sure great fun but does not really add to society.

    GRADING UPDATE
    Next submission deadline is 8th May just after the May bank holiday
    You can specify London Submission OR USA Submission
    London is a little more expensive but includes insurance both ways and USA is slightly cheaper and includes insurance from USA to UK only
    London is faster generally with around 30 days end to end and USA can be 60-90 days based on current processing
    If you do not specify I will chose USA unless your coin is valued at £1500 or more or is heavier than 2oz in which case i will submit to London.

    gazer reacted to Kowloon88 in Gold Spread Calculation   
    This is my understanding:
    A dealer will have two different prices for buying and selling gold. For example, assuming gold is £1,000 per ounce:
    Dealer buys at 96% of spot: (0.96*1000) = £960 per ounce
    Dealer sells at 3% over spot: (1.03*1000) = ££1,030 per ounce. This is also called the premium. 
    The dealer makes money and covers his costs in the above difference between the buy/sell price. This is also known as the spread. You can calculate this in absolute terms, which is the £ difference, or express it as a percentage.
    In the above example, the spread is (1030-960) = £70 in absolute terms. As a percentage it is ((70/960)*100) = 7.29%
    If you buy and sell frequently, you will be interested in the spread, which can differ amongst different dealers.
    If you primarily buy, then you may be interested in the premium above spot. Aim to buy bullion close to (or lower than) spot where possible.
    To give you an indication of how well you are doing, you can also pool your gold purchases. You add up the total weight of pure gold and total up the price paid for all that gold. You then divide the total purchase price by the total weight (grams is easier). You now know how much your portfolio of gold is worth against the market value per given weight unit. This makes sense if you have lots of different gold coins paid for at different prices.
    Let me know if anyone spots a mistake in my thinking! Hope that helps
