  2. Haha, i know this pain ,when going grocery shopping on an empty stomach!
  3. Booo! Will try and source an old one if possible, i've got some reloz on the case!
  4. Wife is off to Canada tomorrow , see if she will bring me back a "Spocked" 🇨🇦 fiver https://dangerousminds.net/comments/bank_of_canada_urges_star_trek_fans_to_stop_spocking_their_fivers
  5. I think I'll just wait for some bags from my mother, so have a circulated set, and that will be all! Defo not staying awake or waking up early. Wrt gruffalo, that sits nicely on my mantlepiece (with my aztecs). Good talking point when friends come over!
  6. I see Royal Mint emailing about upcoming release of the new designs!
  7. Soz @AppleZippoandMetronome, i was actually suppose to write that you were spot on while quoting you. Thats what you get for multi-tasking and trying to watch Killing Eve at the same time!
  8. As a mum who is a sub-post mistress, the main reason for asking is not to be nosey but to check something prohibited isnt being sent properly ie batteries! They get a telling off if these items are found not sent correctly! Obvs some PO folk are a bit nosey!
  9. Could bring down banking institutions if done very well! https://thesilverforum.com/topic/11158-today-i-received/?do=findComment&comment=265065 I'm also a bit split minded on real gold replicas/restrikes etc since i hold some received as gifts for wedding and birth of children. For the many, people are just buying the weight of gold, not what the coin looks like!

  11. Been a bit excited for the last few weeks, but today I finally received this 30 g golden beauty! Hugest of thanks to @Marc Long story short, i'm a bit of a fan of The Phoenix (sentimental place from my uni+ days), hence my collecting of most things Phoenix such as the dragon and phoenix coins here! https://thesilverforum.com/topic/11158-today-i-received/?do=findComment&comment=247324 During my many discussions with @Marc i told him about my affinity for Phoenix coins and he showed me one he had. From that moment i wanted it. Just loved the super design with the Phoenix and obviously the gold! I've got to learn more about the history behind it too. I think he was very reluctant to let it go, but i'm chuffed he did! Here its is, A 30 g (¥100,000) gold proof (PF70) coin commemorating The Enthronement of Emperor Akihito (Heisei). This emperor recently abdicated, the first time an emperor has done so in over 200 years. They are not rare coins, about 100,000 of them in proof, but they are very scarce outside of Japan. Now that the emperor has abdicated they probably hold a bit more historical significance! There's quite a story about the Japanese 20 g gold coin from this era, but maybe @Marc can tell that story in another post!
  12. Got a of bag of these from my "supplier" = mum! I have a feeling there will be loads of these around soon - probably a high mintage! But if any folk are desperate for a shiny one now (rather than waiting to find in their change), just give us a PM.
  13. Cheers, yep realised yesterday after looking at ngc graded ones on interweb! Probably reflecting back I think the jeweller checking said it was as a re strike. With current gold prices I might visit hgm and covert all these "fakes" to a real sov or 2. But in do like the weirdness of these Indian and Middle East real gold fakes!
