Hello forum members

Hi forum members. I've had an interest in numismatic coins and precious metals (mainly antique silver) for many years. Buying from jumbles, car boot sales, junk shops when i could, then from ebay when it came along. 

I have been into bullion stacking since about 2014 because I liked the idea of owning some of the .999 silver content Britannia's ready for a "sure thing" mega return after the horrendous price plummet of the time (having been unaware of their existence in 2013).

Still stacking So filling some of my time with some like minded people, and perhaps doing some trade or deals sometime in the future.

 Take a quick look at this new 2022 Brit. that escaped R.M. quality control. Great detailed strike but Its so off center struck it has completely ruined the milled edge. I know that its only bullion but Its practically an error/reject. If I didn't know what I was looking at I would think it to be a bit iffy. Hope they get their act together soon.

  Thank you for letting me join,

 Much love, F.

Hello! Welcome to the forum ūü§ó

An interesting error coin. Not one I've seen before. The QC obviously was asleep on the job. ūüėā

In 2014, there were quite a few 'mule' Britannias minted. A wrong die was¬†used¬†and the coins were released onto the market. They were¬†for a while sought after with added premium. But not sure if yours will attract the same attention though ūüėÖ

 I have a whole tube of the same, so they really could have been asleep ha ha. The only other thing I can think of is that a lower quality or incorrect blank has been used due to the apparent Royal mint shortage reported a few weeks ago.

I don't think they will have a premium either, other than the one that I already paid on them. It makes me wonder how the premiums are actually justified on these.

Yes shame they are not mule Britannia's I would be over the moon. I'm not that lucky¬†ūüėĀ

Thanks Jvw I'ts a great place and I'm slowly finding my way around.

 We could have sent theBrits back but decided to keep them for the novelty. There a bit crazy looking but from a reliable source lol. I have 25, be interesting to hear of any others out there. Correct size and weight. with a slight oval of less than a mil showing up on my calipers.

Could be rough handling post production has caused some of it but iffy QC during production is definitely a culprit here.

I opened the seal myself.  Can you see the beading between the grooves? I cant think of another 1oz blank with beading between the grooves apart from last years gold Brit had dots. Totally the wrong size for this of coarse.

I can see what you mean, maybe it is a production error on all of them. As far as rough handling goes though a sealed tube from the mint doesn't mean they weren't knocked about before going into the tubes. As long as they come out at weight and have been struck it seems that's all the RM care about with most bullion. I imagine they're shimmied, shuffled and bounced about into their runners ūü§™

They are all off center in the same place the beading starts and finishes in the same place and i can tell they were produced in exact order. Unfortunately I may have moved a few out of place. so it will take me hours to put them back in order. hindsight isa lovely thing lol.

Forum members may buy and sell in the Buy & Sell section, no UK selling license needed, as far as I’m aware, as I’m in U.S.

https://www.thesilverforum.com/forum/115-united-kingdom/

Getting a premium membership will help with buying from the Forum as you will have visibility to sales days before non-members. And the membership will pay for itself many times over from the competitive pricing with members… @ChrisSilver can assist you with premium memberships if you have any questions.

Thanks, been away from selling for eons, especially online. All platforms are different and I have trouble deciphering T&cs at the best of times.

looks quite good value to gain access to the inner sanctum. I will inform my great uncle frugal who is considering joining up :) 

Thank you.
