    Stunning collection. I'm trying to get a similar set myself but without the £5 coins for now. I've also gone for the 2016 which has the alternate queen portrait as part of my set.

    These gold releases like the silver are not made at the request of any private company such as Apmex,etc...The Shanghai mint is the minter of these coins and is controlled by the Chinese government.The government tells the mint what and how many to mint.From what I've heard just a small percentage will be permitted to leave China for world wide distribution.

    I can see both sides here really. I've praised Coin Connection on here in the past, but did criticise them on their incremental price hiking on the Snowman on the day of that release. It didn't look great imho. But really, what are they to do? They seem to have learned a little bit and were more upfront with their pricing this time. They are dealing with a rapidly changing marketplace and have to react to the Mint's tactics (which I think many would argue have been increasingly underhand, purely aiming at hype and creating a frenzy rather than anything else - that is certainly my view!). Unlike flippers, CC are running a business with many overheads. I think one thing to look at with Coin Connection (as this company has been singled out, unfairly imho) is their stock - they carry hundreds if not thousands of coins, all of which they QC (where the Mint doesn't, or so often seems to fail to) many of which may make them very little or may even not ever sell, but they carry the stock for their customers. I don't see the flippers doing the same!
    They are the 'good guys' in this as far as I'm concerned, they really do look after their customers. Compare that to the likes of BNT or Harrington & Byrne, off the top of my head. The former froze my bank account for days by taking payment for coins they promised they would alert me about when stock became available to fulfill my order. Well they didn't, and they put a charge on my bank out of nowhere weeks later, no email notification, nothing - just suddenly my bank account was frozen. When I phoned them to sort it out they denied any knowledge but said they would investigate and let me know, and then finally the money was released back to me (which my bank say could only have been done at BNT end). When I didn't hear anything from them despite their promises I called. They suddenly insisted that I had to provide proof to them that they had left me unable to access cash for three days due to their mistake.
    Harrington & Byrne I bought 3 bullion Sovs from, they then phoned me and kept me on the phone for an hour telling me basically how stupid I was for buying bullion and that I should be buying proofs from them, and that e.g. if I bought a Paddington at £1200 I could double my money. A complete 42 QEII coin issue proof Sov set at £27k I could split up and sell for £40k profit 🤣
    I digress. Tldr; the Mint are playing silly beggars and leading to most of the ill-will, particularly among numismatists who are scratching their heads at some of these hyped coins, but also among the general public. And yes companies raise their prices, but I don't think £900 is too bad from Coin Connection who carry huge stock of all coins from BUNC 50ps upwards and really care about their customers, when you can go to a company like BNT or H&B and pay double that for a proof if you like!
