  1. An eBay bargain, I think. A 1 oz high relief Koala Proof. Chunky monkey, about the same thickness as a 2 oz beast.
  2. They fit perfectly into 1 oz silver Philharmonic tubes.
  3. Probably not free for you, as you’ll now be on a list somewhere! 😧
  4. This error led to a discussion on the radio this morning where various other official gaffs were mentioned. My favourite was a 2017 communique from the White House which reiterated its aim of peach in the Middle East.
  5. Skippy the proof kangaroo 🦘 (1/4 oz).
  6. For reasons only known to the Royal Mint, in 2006 they released a set of five Proof coins limited to 250. One coin is the actual 2006 proof, the others are the designs from 1999, 2001, 2003 and 2005, but all dated 2006.
  7. Full set of PF70’s for the 2006 1/4 oz Britannia set.
  8. I’m a Chemistry graduate, can I be on one? On the against side, I’ve achieved nothing of any great note.
  9. I don’t like to rely on the ping test - every different variety of silver coin I own sounds different.
  10. They retail from the mint at £85, so you’ll struggle to find one much cheaper than this - at least for now. If you start with the older Britannia proofs, you might find something cheaper (excluding the 1997).
  11. A couple of bundled GS.be orders (arrived in a 10 oz Unicorn monster box) and eBay proof Britannias.
  12. I don’t think it’s been issued yet.
  13. I don’t think I could tell the difference between 999 and 9999. I think a 1 oz valiant is on the cards as well.
  14. Will have to get some of these. https://www.coininvest.com/en/silver-coins/the-royal-arms/1-oz-the-royal-arms-silver-coin-2019/
  15. You’ve identified the often overlooked reason that people are routinely willing to overpay on eBay. They can use a credit card.
  16. It was an eBay auction win from Russia. Took 3 weeks to arrive, but got here eventually.
  17. The naughty coins already sell for a premium, or did last time I saw one. I'm not sure the future holds much for them, as they become a quickly forgotten lowish mintage bullion coin and we all move on to the next thing. That reminds me, what happened to the bloke who was going to give up work because he'd bought a handful of silver coins with a bad leopard and the wrong number on them? Presumably he's on a beach somewhere, or maybe he's at work. Update: Did the forum really change my pretty inoffensive c**p to bad?
  18. Not U.K., but Silberling.de have them. Combine with a cheap silver order and you’ll be laughing.
  19. It’s s real shame that the new portrait of the Queen on Perth Mint products is almost as bad as the terrible Pobjoy mint version.
  20. Have I accidentally opened Zerohedge? Had to stop reading that years ago, filled with paranoid nonsense.

    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.
  22. You’ll also find that many want to be called British. It’s really not as simple as you paint it.
