First of all Merry Christmas everyone! So while the kids received anything and everything to do with unicorns this Christmas, i got to replenish and make an inventory of my coins in circulations stocks such as the A-Z 10p, 50p and £2. I'll try and now make hay while i can and use the profits to buy more precious metals... Was quite chuffed to receive a load of the A-Z 10ps, Jemima Puddleduck 50ps and the elusive Northern Ireland Commonwealth £2 coin. They are all getting listed ASAP. Happy to try and help out folk on here who are collecting if I can!

A link to the new collection will be added to the Buy Sell and Trade section A bit of History: At the outbreak of World War One in 1914, few people believed, that aircraft would play a major roll in the conflict. Hot -air balloons had been used previously for almost 100 years for reconnaissance and observation, it was thought that planes would serve a similar purpose. The Royal Flying Corps, the aviation branch of the British Army, began life as an 'eye in the air' reporting on enemy positions and providing a tactical advantage. Sadly as the war progressed into the bloodiest conflict the world had ever seen, the race for superior air power began, shaping the history of human flight. Together with the Royal Naval Air Service, the Royal Flying Corps grew into a force of a few hundred aeroplanes in 1914 into a huge, independent air arm of thousands of combat and support aircraft. Pilots observers and crew risked their lives testing the new technology to it's limits. Deployed above battlegrounds, often beyond the call of duty, these brave men suffered the effects of altitude and freezing temperatures, they also faced great personal danger from enemy guns, and later combat fighters. Seeing film footage of the 'dogfights', reminds us all of the skill and courage of these brave men. The Royal Flying Corps and Naval flying service, went on to become the HM Royal Air Force, on the 1st April 1918 Today and every day we should remember the brave souls who in this terrible conflict, made the ultimate sacrifice, be it on land, air or sea.
Hi all. Question about circulating coins. Coinhunt. What way will you go? Is it worth to bay with extra premium brilliant uncirculated coins by Royal Mint or Uncirculated coins? It's quite hart to get circulated £5, but the prices for presentation packs sometimes are crazy. Same is with smaller nominals. What is your suggestions about this?
