    At least 3 of the 5 Beatrix Potter released in 2016 will still set you back significantly more than issue price, as will a large number of the £2 silver proofs released in recent years. It’s also true that some can found significantly below issue price. Pot luck really, but the hype doesn’t always die down.
  2. You’ll also find that many want to be called British. It’s really not as simple as you paint it.
  3. The vote will be lost later and then we're back in anything can happen territory - it will feel as chaotic as the morning after the referendum.

    Everybody’s favourite - the London Coin Company - has the gold for £1500, piedfort for £250 and the Proof for £150. Nice work if you can get it.

    The 7 am start makes it really awkward for anybody travelling to work/ school drop off. I joined the queue 30 mins before setting off and completed my order in a pub car park.
  6. You’ve been reading the internal memos of eBay’s marketing team!
  7. Those were my thoughts too, it looks like a plug hole, not a black hole.
  8. Must confess I didn’t know this coin existed until I happened across it on eBay. 2013 BU Britannia - I mistakenly thought these had all been the conventional design until the 2019 version.

    I’m not sure it would fit.
  10. I think it was a single year issue, but circulation, so there are literally millions of them. Not rare but usually command a small premium in the U.K.
  11. Spot silver - 13 Australia 1966 50 Cents at £11.45/oz.
  12. They do, yes. Nobody appears to want them, which is why I’ve managed to pick up a couple for around £30 each.
