    1981 25p "Experimental Coin"

    A bit too male looking to be "Britannia in my book , do we really need a non -binary on a coin ?

    1981 25p "Experimental Coin"

    If sold it should go under the title of "Experimental CN test coin unknown value" that would be the most honest title. I must admit that Britannia making all the coins personally brings a smile to my face.

    I have looked thoroughly through google and they appear to have disapeared from the earth . I wonder why?
  9. The truth is if you yourself are convinced its a special strike then bid a bit extra for it , it can never be proved if it is, or isn't, but if you yourself can see a reason to bid extra for it then there has to be others out there that would belive the same . Personally I would never pay a masive premium for one of these coins but hey, I am not the whole of the English collecting public am I?

  12. Was not the major thing at this time trying to get rid of "Ghosting" it had plagued all early george V pennies and was a particular hate of the king who himself who was a collector , so it would not surprise me if these were made by the mint and given away as keepsakes to important visitors

    I think pretty much all of the money people in russia are quaking in their boots and hopeing they get through till a new leader arrives , I surpose they just resign themselves to the fact that enjoying their life and money might cost them their lives . There were much worse in the past like Stalin his "Enemies" ended into the millions in fact he starved the Ukraine and more or less ruined the russian breadbasket as it was known then . The above murder is pretty easy to solve if their was only two people in the flat , I do suspect it will be brushed under the carpet though .

    That oligarth insurance against falling out of windows must cost a bit_____ A Russian bank official has died after plummeting from a tall window of her Moscow apartment. Kristina Baikova, 28, who was the vice-president of Loko Bank, fell out of the apartment window on Khodynsky Boulevard on the evening of June 23. Tragically, she died on the scene as a result of her injuries. She is said to have been spending time with a friend called Andrei, 34, who was with Kristina on the eleventh floor. He claims that Kristina contacted him asking him to come for a drink before he "went out onto the parapet and fell down", BAZA reports. Recent events in Russia have raised fears of looming assassination attempts after Yevgeny Prigozhin sought to wage a mutiny against the military leadership in the Kremlin.
