    When is a coin not a coin?

    there is one very simple answer to the question above. WHEN IT DOES NOT CIRCULATE

    Rarest Circulation Coin?

    I to think there is nil investment potential in the undated 20p coins , the most i got for one was £70 which i took and reinvested via paypal in decent collectable coins. I am happy to keep one of the kew gardens 50p coins though - it is really atractive and they will soon have all disappeared from circulation leaving few hanging about 210,000 mintage is really low for any modern coin . If that london mint office had given the same publicity to the general public about the scarcity of these 50p coins the would it be worth £50 each now ????

    Rarest Circulation Coin?

    Welcome Copper123 You are very lucky to find those coins in change. I have been looking for years,even the village PO checked for me. The mint messed up on the mintage for Kew garden 50p's which has now been corrected.The damage was done and now Ebay prices are still too high.Well done on shifting the 20p's they will be worth £20 for the next 60 years (like 50,51 pennies....hyped)
  4. I am also looking for a high grade oh victoria penny - only 1895 , 1896 and 1897 are really dear so i will prob buy a top grade 1901 also , £15 to £25 will get you a lovely coin and there are plenty around

    When is a coin not a coin?

    I would say a blanket ban on buying coins in newspapers is good advice in general , but I do remember buying a silver dollar in 1998 through the post , it cost me £5.99 if i remember rightly and is worth around £40 now

    Rarest Circulation Coin?

    I have found several 2010 kew gardens coins in change (along with several undated 20p coins ) All have been sold except for the nicest 50p in a/unc which i a keeping as a keepsake.
  8. Would you get an elephant in the room bonus with this coin?
  9. Hi there Mongo , Just wondering if you have a thought of Victorian halfpennies They are cheap but a lots scarcer in nice grades but much less collected than pennies so you get more for your $$$$ or £££ just a thought
  10. Sounds like some American decided to let his wallet do the talking rather than his mouth. If only other yanks would follow suit
  11. It would sell better if it was dated 1776 - there are loads of these sold for silly money and exported every year from the uk. Oh by the way CANDYGRAM FOR MONGO - BOOM LOL
