    Did anyone see the price that pennies fetched in the Stacks-Bowers sale ? Very high grades but unbelievable prices. See 1927 and 1895 pennies: https://auctions.stacksbowers.com/lots/view/3-UTMAO/great-britain-penny-1927-george-v-ngc-ms-66-red https://auctions.stacksbowers.com/lots/view/3-UTM0A/great-britain-penny-1895-london-mint-victoria-ngc-ms-66-red-brown
  4. I think it's the younger generation that are doing that - our granddaughter's student boyfriend speculates on bitcoin whereas none of my pensioner golfing friends would touch it with a bargepole !
  5. Plus, of course, the fact that the pandemic has seen people's bank accounts swell through lack of holidays, restaurants etc and, as the baby boomers move through their twilight years, they realise that they can't take it with them. So they may as well spend it on something that takes their fancy.

    2021 Unc set mystery

    I recently bought the 2021 Uncirculated set from Westminster Mint because it contains the Decimalisation 50p with original 1969 obverse and then received a letter saying that I should return it as there is an error and they would send a replacement. I asked for more details but they would only say that: "The Royal Mint have alerted us to a minor printing/spelling mistake on the packaging of these BU Packs." I have looked for this mistake but can't find it so I'm inclined to keep the set in case there's a more important mistake that might prove to be a rarity in the future. Has anyone else heard anything about this "error" ?

    Decimal Coin Varieties

    I am thinking about creating a decimal coins varieties site along the lines of my penny varieties site and wonder whether there is a site(s) from where I can take good quality images rather than have to take my own photos ? Something to pass the winter months.

    1992 £1 error with Flax reverse

    Whilst filing away some old £1 coins today, I found a 1992 £1 with the Irish Flax reverse. The correct reverse for 1992 is recorded as English Oak. Is this likely to be a forgery ?

    I wonder if there's a market for them, tapping into the nostalgia/curiosity ?
