    Coin aquisition of the week.......

    This just arrived, and it looks alot nicer than the sellers pictures presented it. I might even venture it to be Maundy, as the polished fields are really bright.

    That would be a question I'm neither old enough nor qualified enough to answer.

    Ebay's Worst Offerings

    It's the grading AND the pricing which caught my eye, with that structure I'm a multi-billionaire

    Brexit 50p design

    Are you suggesting that all these remainers are lying? I think I'll phone the Daily Mail!

    Gold brexit 50p's - anybody get one?

    Missed out due to the website issues, which means I also couldn't book the SYO sovereign either. Regular customers really ought to get dibs before the hordes of profiteering riff-raff get a look in. Mainly because my profiteering is more important.

    Brexit 50p design

    @SwordWith (allegedly) 50 million remainers, and (I say this with a wry smile) ONLY 10 million in circulation, it shouldn't take long And no, @Peckris 2 I won't oblige.

    Brexit 50p design

    I'm hoping all th eoffended remainers will bury/melt/destroy many of them thus reducing the number to scare

    Brexit 50p design

    They're tryinmg to create a non-divisive coin without the word brexit on. Trouble is, they've done something really cheesy instead of actually commemrating the UK leaving the EU. Whatever they do for it, the remoaners will be critical, and with the current design so will anyone who likes coins or wants to pick faults. Whatever, I'm still off to the mint tomorrow to get me one in a Jan31/2020 pack in the one-day only event.

    Coin aquisition of the week.......

    So the sellers pics are bad, you don't know what metal it is and the date is tbc. Taking a bit of a chance there then. - And also if it's for ID please start a thread of y9our own,
  14. Not the finest example going, but in hand eye appeal is very good.

    UK Election

    Personally I and the planet are eagerly awaiting the next ELE space rock. Perhaps that migh make any survivors reconsider how important this rock in space actually is. It'd probably screw the coin market though, but it would also shake up the governments all across the globe
