The Guernsey Mint - BullionRock - Ravenscroft / First Purchase On TSF!


Recommended Posts

Hi

I recently got my first item from the silver forum🥳 the seller was very nice and posted it fast!

1 oz 9999 Silver "Guernesey" 8 Doubles 2014 Coin - More info on TSF YouTube channel:

 

 

I like how the coin reads 9999 fine silver (not just 999), I noticed Guernsey is spelled "Guernesey" on the coin which is the French translation.

For anybody who doesn't know, Guernsey is an island in between the UK and France Guernsey - Wikipedia

The coin is based on a lighter 9.6 gram bronze coin which was in circulation in Guernsey from 1864 to 1911:67985b.jpg

 

 

When I first saw the silver 1oz version they were made by The Guernsey Mint, which changed names to BullionRock Direct and then to Ravenscroft Precious Metals

There website currently states they are no longer doing online sales: Ravenscroft Precious Metals. - BullionRock (anyone in guernsey who still buys from them?)

The mintage is mysterious. I found a related post: Guernsey 8 Double mintages - Silver - The Silver Forum

The earliest coin I can find is from 2008 ("limited yearly issue") and the latest is 2014

Here are some pictures of my first purchase. If you have any information about the coins, mintage, or company please post it here
