  1. Even worse than that - When the first 10 oz Queens Beast Lion of England was released from the Royal Mint, ignoring VAT, you could buy it cheaper - significantly cheaper - from a dealer in the USA than directly from the mint itself. I called the RM to protest and they said that they were not responsible for the price set by dealers. Right I said but how can they be up to 10% cheaper !!
  2. Please keep me in mind if you locate either privy. Thanks. Just wonder where they all went ?
  3. About 12 years ago when I caught the stacking bug I started buying lots of shiny silver and gold. Last summer I sold most of my proof gold coins ( too early in hindsight seeing current prices ! ) and this year I am clearing out a chunk of my silver proof coins and all of my sterling silver. My strategy has changed but I am sure there are many others on this forum looking for bargains and maybe some looking for memorabilia and historic coins. Therefore to clear up some shelf space I am hoping to part with these two boxed coin sets. I am asking £75 each including delivery to clear. Of course I am going to loose having paid over £100 each, 10 years ago but 'ces-la-vie '! The Canadian Mint issued several series of commemorative proof silver coins to celebrate the Montreal Olympics in 1976 - The XXI Olympiad I have 2 boxed sets including numbered certificates to clear - 1. Second issue in the series, minted in 1974 which contains 4 legal tender coins in a strong wooden box with a brown leather lid. Each coin is 0.925 silver in two denominations - The $10 coin contains 1.44 Troy ounces of fine silver 9999 and is 45 mm in diameter The $5 coin contains 0.723 Troy ounces of fine silver 9999 and is 38 mm in diameter In total the weight of fine 9999 silver in this set is 4.326 Troy ounces / 134.55 grams Coin #1 depicts the $10 Head of Zeus Coin #2 depicts the $5 Athlete with torch Coin #3 depicts the $10 Temple of Zeus Coin #4 depicts the $5 Olympic rings & wreath 2. Third issue in the series, minted in 1974 and contains 4 legal tender coins in a strong wooden box with a brown leather lid. Coin #1 depicts the $10 Lacrosse Coin #2 depicts the $5 Canoeing Coin #3 depicts the $10 Cycling Coin #4 depicts the $5 Rowing Please note that in common with many silver coins from the Canadian Mint ( and some other mints across the world ) some can show minor spots & stains. Some minor dust / case lining threads appears on the outside of caps which I recall were glued shut by the Mint.
