  1. Lol, I had some silver do that. Stored it in a wooden box for a few months, and hey presto, brown toning. I'm guessing it was either the wood itself that caused it, or the chemicals used to treat it. I'd imagine this is the same situation, it does look very similar. (Not clicking a link from the sun to find out, I refuse to give them the ad revenue)
  2. That's hideous. I love it 😄
  3. Bit of a long shot, but would anybody have any info on this? I've had it for years, I think it was sold as Japanese bean money, but I've never been able to turn anything up on it. I'm not even sure that's the correct name for it. I haven't weighed it, I don't have scales sensitive enough, but it feels somewhere between a half sovereign and a full sovereign in the hand (super accurate, I know). Silver brit for scale. Its a bit thicker than the brit, but it isn't totally even.
  4. Love that treasure chest Jamesd! This rather lovely coin came in the post today from a dealer who shall remain unnamed. Not pictured is the sovereign that also arrived, but we all know what they look like at this point 😄
  5. Look at its face, the ears back, the wild eyes. Poor thing looks terrified 😄
  6. 8 minutes later and it's still trying to add it to my basket on the Royal Mint site. I gave up and went through the coin connection in the end, at least I got there before they started ramping the price up. Even worked out 5p cheaper
  7. I quite like the silver, I think I prefer it to the non-colourised versions. Which is just as well, since the gold will be way out of my budget this month 😅
  8. Harrington and Byrne just made another sale, can't say no when spot is looking like that 😄
  9. I've heard of the Buckingham collection before, but never used them. Beautiful coin, if I hadn't just ordered a sovereign from h&b I'd be sorely tempted, American eagles have been on my 'want' list for ages. For whatever reason American coins carry a slightly higher premium from the UK sellers that I use, so it seems like a decent offer.
  10. Not a deal as such, but I know a lot of people like these gold standard coins, and they're back in stock. Someone buy them before I give in to temptation and get one myself 😅 https://www.bullionbypost.co.uk/gold-coins/quarter-ounce-gold-coins/2018-Quarter-Ounce-Gold-Standard-25-coin/
  11. Silver proof sold out at the mint now, didn't take long
