I bought 3 old britannia's from my Dad, he said he never took them out if the capsules they came in.

I tried to take them out, I got the lid off and the coins were in so tight I had to crack the capsule in half to get them out.

Sorry it wasn't help one of them was 2001 so had Una and the lion

The capsules that came with the una's the CC got failed there quality control so they got new ones from the mint and replaced them before the coins could be sent from the CC, so there was some issue with the capsules that the mint were sending.

I believe mine was a screw capsule if I remember right, but can't be 100% on that.

Hi all,

Thanks for all the replies!This is a very kind forum. Yes it was a screw capsule and I broke it as i was trying to screw it closed. My heart skipped a beat when it happened!!

I will contact the mint and CC for a replacement- it sounds like there was an issue with these capsules anyway? Or could just be me!

Still love looking at my Una and the lion. What a coin.

I am organising with arcglide RE the QB's capsules. I dont think the Una will fit as it was a unique size?
