  1. Hi @KevinFlynn I love those angels, and they are getting hard to find these days. If you EVER see this version of the 1896 angel, buy it…the torches’ engravers mark is really rare!👍 The one you have is the axe…and it’s in far better condition than mine👍
  2. On the 1oz privy front, I can probably help…as I spent a happy year or two collecting them. I never found a definitive list of all of them, either on the Perth Mint website or anywhere else…and I did look…really hard! I do also have a few of the F15 privy 1oz kooks, although not the last two years…I refuse to pay £100+ for one oz of silver! I also never went for the coloured varieties or the lunar. There are also the gilded kooks to consider. I The table below is what I consider to be a pretty complete list of all the 1oz privy kooks, most of which I will have an example of. It’s on an excel spreadsheet, so doesn’t import onto the forum easily. Here goes my best shot :- 1992 Eagle Proof 1993 Sydney Opera House 1993 Eagle Proof 1994 Commonwealth Games Kangaroo 1995 Panda 1995 Basler Slab 1996 Foundation Stone Centenery 23-9-96 1996 Europe Brandenberg Gate 1996 Europe Eiffel Tower 1996 Europe Colossus of Rhodes 1996 Europe Tower Bridge 1996 Europe Atomism Belgium 1996 Tricentennial 1996 Panda 1996 Goya 1997 Goudi 1997 Thomas Edison 1997 Zurich 1997 Oldsmobile 1997 Phoenix 1997 Dragon 1997 Japanese Yen Old Type 1997 Panda 1997 Europe Elk Finland 1997 Europe Monument Portugal 1997 Europe The Windmill Netherlands 1997 Europe Italy Coluseum 1997 Europe Little Mermaid Denmark 1998 Europe The Harp Ireland 1998 Europe Robert Schumann Building Lux 1998 Europe The Alhambra 1998 Europe St Stephens Vienna 1998 Europe The Delaware Ship Sweden 1999 1919 Square Penny 1999 Delaware State Quarter 1999 New Jersey Mint 1999 Georgia 1999 Pennsylvania 1999 Connecticut 1999 16th C Japanese Oval Tempo Koban 1999 Bullion 50 Francs Lux 1999 Bullion 20 schilling Austria 1999 Bullion 1Deutschmark 1999 Bullion 50 Francs Belg 1999 Bullion 1 guilder 1999 Bullion 5 francs France 1999 Bullion 1000 Lire 1999 Bullion 100 pesetas 1999 Bullion 50'escudoa 1999 Bullion 1 punt Ireland 1999 Bullion 1 Marka Finland 1999 Landmarks Perth 1999 Landmarks Gold Coast 1999 Landmarks Adelaide 1999 Landmarks McDonnell 1999 Landmarks Sydney 1999 1899 Centenary Sovereign 2000 Landmarks Kalgoorlie 2000 Landmarks Monkey Mia 2000 Landmarks Gt Barrier Reef 2000 Landmarks Uluru 2000 Landmarks Australia 2000 2000 Massachusetts 2000 Maryland 2000 South Carolina 2000 New Hampshire 2000 Virginia 2000 Jan Millennium Calendar 2000 Feb 2000 Mar 2000 Apr 2000 May 2000 Jun 2000 Jul 2000 Aug 2000 Sep 2000 Oct 2000 Nov 2000 Dec 2001 New York 2001 North Carolina 2001 Rhode Island 2001 Vermont 2001 Kentucky 2001 Santa Claus 2001 Santa Claus 2001 Confederation Star 2002 American Flag 2005 Zodiac Aquarius 2005 Pisces 2005 Aries 2005 Taurus 2005 Gemini 2005 Cancer 2005 Leo 2005 Virgo 2005 Libra 2005 Scorpio 2005 Sagittarius 2005 Capricorn 2012 Dragon 2013 F15 2013 Snake 2014 F15 2014 Horse 2015 F15 2015 Goat 2016 Monkey 2016 F15 2017 Rooster 2017 F15 2017 Shark 2017 Panda 2018 Dog 2018 F15 2018 Panda 2019 Pig 2019 Square penny 2019 F15 2019 Panda 2020 ANDA Perth Money Expo Floral 2020 ANDA Brisbane Money Expo 2020 ANDA Melbourne Cactus privy 2020 ANDA Sydney Floral Privy I do also have Mintage figures for most of the above, but they would not copy over! Drop me a PM if you require any more info on the 1oz privy’s👍
  3. A superb bit of post arrived this morning, just back from grading..three of my favourite coins.
  4. Three more offerings from Peru. All going well, my next coin to add to the collection will be from Guatamala! Just got to be patient, and wait for it to arrive from the USA!
  5. Three more rarities to add to the Una Libra collection. Two coins sourced from Geneva, and one from Paris. 1914 POZG Mintage - unknown - Graded by NGC 2 :- one AU55 and this one! 1926 Mintage -4596 Graded by NGC 3 :- two MS65’s and my MS63. 1962 Mintage - 6203 Graded by NGC :- 11
  6. https://www.ngccoin.com/registry/competitive-sets/289960/ Plus a few more which are in for grading 👍
  7. Two coins for ‘les enfants’, and one for the Una Libra collection.
  8. I bought an angel from this company a few years ago. All I will say is, make sure you have great photographs of both sides of the coin you are buying. I had to get a PayPal refund for one of the coins I bought. It had a crack in it deep enough to get your thumb nail down!
  9. Jammy dog getting it so cheep....I relaxed a bit when I saw you had bought it...I was just too slow😥.
  10. Not ordered from them personally. If all goes well, there should be no tax to pay on importing gold, but our customs people don’t always get it right!...then you have a load of hassle....all part of the coin collecting game I’m afraid!
  11. @Hannibal Hi, Having checked..it looks like I paid double spot for the 1927 20 Franga, and more for the lower grade 1926 (I overpaid maybe for this coin). On the plus side, I only paid 20% above spot for my 1888, and that is looking like a great pick up:- I do not own a 20 Perpera. I’m only collecting Peruvian Una Libras currently.
  12. Photos as promised...edit not currently available🙁 Note difference between torch and axe.
  13. Hi @Lea79 the value is entirely down to grade...if ungraded then much lower. I was looking at an MS66 last year, and it went for silly money...well into four figures. I don’t think I have ever seen one sell for less than £600, but haven’t really followed them recently...unlike @augur...he will know. The 1926 used to go for an extra £50-£100.. Maybe post some pics of the ones you have...
  14. Hi...just checked my records. The 1926 Skanderbegu was bought from a small private dealer based in Thessaloniki (via eBay). He still trades under the name Agamemnon 2586. The 1926 usually carries a higher premium than the 1927, which is odd as it has a higher mintage...5900 as opposed to 5000. Out of all of my LMU these two are probably the most expensive to buy, but in the case of the 1927 it is graded PCGSMS64, so as a graded example it commands a higher price than a raw coin. Two other 20 Francs coins come very close, if not higher:- The 1896 French 20 Fr ‘Angel at Desk’ with the rare ‘Torche’ mint mark is extremely rare, and expensive to buy. I would say for every 30 coins of this date, 29 will have the ‘fasces’, axe mint mark. Unfortunately, I had to pay full price to obtain mine. The other one to look out for is the French 20 Francs 1888 year date. The 20 Fr coins were minted in there millions, but not this one. I think the mintage was only about 28k. I managed to get mine from a French dealer for a little over £300. Once back from grading (AU58), it is probably worth double! When the sun rises, I might edit the post to add pictures of the above two coins.
