    I bought one of those 2019 sets (to keep, because I didn't have a 2009 Kew) - so that's good news for me at least, Pete 🙂

    Mr. Grumpy.

    Yep. It's still cringeworthy though. The continuing infantilisation of something that has no business being infantilised. Bah humbug!
  3. Do you take the article to mean that the Royal Mint has produced lots of new £2 coins over the past few years, but which haven't been released into circulation? That's how I'm reading it. Otherwise, how would they know that there is a stockpile of 26 times the target? If so - just allow collectors to buy them for £2, especially if they are post 2016 designs please 🙂

    Gonad lubrication 😉 Nice! Looks a bit down at heel...

    Did you buy it @VickySilver?

    I'd be delighted to own either Paddy or ozjohn's 1910 half crowns 😄
  7. Nice. I distinctly remember looking at my watch nearly 18 years ago at 20:02 on the 20th February 2002. That was a triple palindrome in UK date format!
  8. Interesting perspective @JLS. I've actually taken almost the opposite approach - in that I've changed my main coin collecting focus towards new UK precious metal bullion coins, and away from predecimal numismatic coins. My reasoning being that I'm not going to lose my shirt on these coins (assuming the intrinsic metal value doesn't fall through the floor) if I need to turn them back into hard cash at short notice, and I can buy them at a relatively small premium compared to their intrinsic resale value. I also think that many of these bullion coins are beautiful in their own right. Currently I'm not looking to buy any older sovereigns although I would love to own some of the 19th Century Double or Quintuple sovereigns. I did still buy a good few predecimal coins last year, but this year they will much lower down the priority list. I need to save up to buy 6 more gold bullion coins this year first!
  9. Still, a million quid buys a lot of other vices 😉

    I applaud your enthusiasm and diligence, but to paraphrase one or two others on here - all I'm seeing is either 'rang tang' or 'a thrower' 😋

    I'm struggling to join the dots. Can anyone give me a synopsis of this ellipsis hypothesis... ?
  12. It's actually the original spelling of bride-to-be 😉
  13. ^^^ That will leave everyone snookered for the maximum amount of time. Back on the bird theme - most weekday lunchtimes I walk round a park local to my office. There are a couple of jays in there too, which I enjoy looking out for.
  14. Oh gosh, not Yew again. Don't talk to me in such clipped tones, or we'll have to set some boundaries between us.
