    Halfpenny ID check

    Not sure - maybe the Royal Mint annual reports (now on their website and searchable) give some figures?

    Storage of proof coins

    I don't have many proofs but I think I have most of them in flips. I haven't checked them lately though.

    2009 Mule 10 Pence With Lion Reverse of 2007

    Surely if it was an intentional fabrication there would be more out there and someone would be cashing.

    The rarest coin you own?

    Ah thanks - and which obverse is it?
  5. What year was that? The Royal Australian Mint sold off a bunch of its collection (1987 or so onwards) including some rare patterns. Bit of a shame I thought, even if it was good that a few things saw the light of day.

    "onc" tenth florins

    Trick of the light but the c and e look different - like the top bar is shorter on the c.
  7. Freeman is the only place I know of for bronze farthings.

    The rarest coin you own?

    Do you have pictures of the coin in its entirety?

    2009 Mule 10 Pence With Lion Reverse of 2007

    No, this is the first I've heard of this and while I don't collect decimals myself, I do keep an eye on this forum.
  10. Freeman 5 is Peck 4 for farthings (and Freeman 6 is Peck 5 - the three berries obverse).
  11. Yeah no mix-ups on the 1925 by the looks of it.
  12. Ah yes: https://www.noble.com.au/auctions/lot?id=450605 Thank you.
  13. What are the Groom numbers for the reverses? I have 157 and 163 denticles for the obverses but I think the different reverses have the same number of denticles.
  14. Many thanks. Unhelpfully listed under the sixpences of 1880!
  15. That's quite nice - good call out to their heritage.

    Color Flying Scotsman £2 coin

    The Royal Mint have done coloured coins before haven't they? Or is this pad-printed rather than painted?
  17. Is the 1839 proof sixpence with obverse 6 mentioned in any books?

    Auction House Fees

    Seems to be - buyers fees and sellers fees together are now standard, though I have seen some auction houses pay you for the big ticket lots as VickySilver said.

    Halfpenny ID check

    Message sent. I don't think I was able to get an answer on obverse 11* though. My 2c (or 2p) is it's the same obverse - the descriptions seem to be contradictory at times and manual touch-ups to some working dies seems like a reasonable explanation.
  20. https://www.ramint.gov.au/circulating-coins shows the current Australian designs - they're not the classic designs of 100-150 years ago but they have a nice simplicity to them I think.
  21. Still in circulation is a tough one - I like Australia and New Zealand's at least, although they've been unchanged for close to 60 years.

    Indian Coin Fob?

    The images aren't showing for me.

    1965 Halfpenny

    Nice find.
  24. Nice find! From the first photo I would have said a letter blunder but based on the above photo maybe something just damaged the die?
  25. No idea but I'd be interested to know. I think https://www.londoncoins.co.uk/?page=Pastresults&auc=124&searchtype=3&startres=1050 is the Davies collection sale so it's worth looking there.
