    Quicksand005 reacted to GoodAsGold in Gruffalo hunting starts tonight   
    I didn't register my interest with the RM for this series as coloured coins are not my thing.  I did buy the 2016 to 2018 Peter Rabbit series for my daughter though and it turns out that coloured coins have apparently become her thing - at least those which commemorate the stories and characters that were part of her upbringing, as @h103efa has already alluded to in the case of his children.  My daughter received a standard RM email announcement about the Gruffalo release an hour after they went on sale.  I'd forgotten about the release date but I decided to buy her a silver proof which I was able to do so with minimum waiting time after 3.30am.  After receiving my order confirmation email I then received a further email a few hours later informing me that the Gruffalo series was now on release (a mere 5 hours after the RM had told my daughter).  I've since told her that I've bought her one and it was similar to the frenzy when the Snowman coin was released. She replied "What Snowman coin?"  The RM had forgotten to tell her about that one apparently.  Might have to look for that coin for her now.  Coloured coins are not my thing (he said), but here I am now buying them because dads do anything for their daughters.  😂

    Quicksand005 reacted to Marc in 1977 Cyprus Archbishop Makarios III proof £1,400   
    Wow thanks everyone for their kind comment and much appreciated. This is just a hobby that has morphed into something more and on books alone i have spent 1,000's of pounds (one out of print Mohur book i paid £466 an original and very sought after reference book). I first started buying everything that I liked then i realized I could not upgrade my car due to lack of funds so started to scale down and sell since my range was too diversified.  Specialization is key so i am am trying to keep to Commonwealth coins (Indian Mohurs, Rhodesian coins, cyprus, Malta, Sth Africa and a few others). Of course the key british coins as well especially the 5 guineas are very attractive but even one of them can be a years salary.
    The cyprus coins are really nice and I have a few sets with the £5 with a limited edition set that was issued to dignitaries and I believe only 200 mintage. I will be keeping the sets since i only have 3 left but I have about 10 or so individual coins that I am happy to sell. I will post the pictures when I have a chance.

    I feel a sense of accomplishment getting so many packages out the door, not sure how many but the postage bill was £300 alone. The people patiently waiting behind me in the sub post office were not so patient though they did thank me for at least apologising for the chaos I had caused...
