  1. Thanks for the offer. Much appreciated. I'd rather buy from a recognised dealer though.
  2. Yeah, saw Wessex Coins had a few. Thanks for the pointer. Added 0 minutes later... Cheers. Hadn't come across them. Will take a look.
  3. Thanks both. Yeah, he's 8 so his key criteria will be (a) how shiny it is (b) how big it is and (c) how heavy it is. Looking at something in a slab isn't going to cut the mustard. With kids that age it's all about tactile experiences. From doing a bit of reading, it looks like the most common coins floating around are Antoninianus dating from Gordian III. He went hell for leather debasing the currency and issued bucket loads of them.
  4. Hi all, My 8 year old son has recently got into coin collecting (he's currently hunting for all the circulating commemorative £2, 50p and 10p coins). However, he's also developing an interest in ancient British history and I'd really like to get him either an authentic Celtic or Roman silver coin for Christmas. However, I have absolutely no idea where to find a reputable dealer in ancients (my experience lies squarely in modern bullion). Would anyone be able to point me in the right direction? Not looking to pay a huge amount as he'll no doubt take it into school for show-and-tell, so I expect we're looking at Roman here rather than Celtic. Thanks in advance for any help you can offer.
  5. Long time lurker, finally decided to sign up. Looking forward to chatting with a few of you.
