  1. Hello everyone, haven't been on here in a while, will have to check to see if I have had anything new that I haven't added to this thread, unfortunately it's time to strike one country off the list now, Fiji dropped the Queen's portrait this year unfortunately so we're down a country, I wonder how many more may do this in the near future?
  2. Interesting coin, thanks for that info, I'll have to hunt that one down
  3. Ah, didn't know that, I haven't seen the new coins on ebay, yet I'll have to seek them out
  4. Fiji Pre-Decimal An incomplete set of pre-decimal Fiji coins, I particularly like the six pence & three pence, Fiji is one of the few places where the three pence was of the same design as the UK version Decimal Complete set of the currently circulating coins of Fiji, as can be seen the Third portrait of Elizabeth II is still used, Fiji also uses a very unique font on their coins as well, a nice little set IMO
  5. Nice, thanks for pointing that one out to me, just got hold of one As for crests on coins, yep definitely agree, they work so well, especially on bigger coins. I hope to have some more up in the next few hours
  6. I do as well, the coat of arms of any country usually works well on coins (Full Royal shield on the 1983, 1993, 1998 & 2003 £1 coins although I think it would have looked better on the 50p coin as can be seen in my avatar, Australian 50c, British Jamaica 1/2 & 1c coins, just several examples that spring to mind). Also regarding the Canadian coins, interesting that only the 1st & 2nd UK portrait were used by Canada yet the 3rd was a variation & the 4th completely unique. Gibraltar is the only crown dependency to move onto a fifth portrait, which is a hybrid of the 3rd & 4th.
  7. Here's a couple of Isle Of Man coins to look out for of both bike types (Pedal & Motor):
  8. I do apologise AndyG, I have just seen this post, thanks for all of this information, never realised the 5p had been modified at one point from the windsurfer, do you know what the 10p was for the sports series as I have never seen an example of it anywhere. The £5 info I got from Wikipedia (although I suppose I should know better than believe anything off of that these days ). Ah so the 1998 without the Triskeles is a sort of "error" then, interesting I'll have to look out for those. As for the commemoratives, I'll have to think about those, there's absolutely loads of them to collect, although the Manx TT ones don't particularly interest me the Christmas ones oddly enough do. Thanks again for the info
  9. Seychelles A small selection of Seychelles coins, included here are the latter issue 1c & 5c coins, both of which are made of aluminium. The 10c coin here is the same size & weight as the UK Threepence coin. I have a complete set on their way to me at the mo, once I receive them I'll post the pictures UPDATE: Complete set of Seychelles coins All coins here from 1 cent to 5 rupee, interestingly enough the portrait is only changed for newly added coins which in this case are the shrunken 1c & 5c coins and the new 50p shaped 5 rupees coins, which is one of my favourites.
  10. Alderney The third island of the Channel Islands that issues coins with it's name on it, however unlike Jersey & Guernsey, Alderney only issue commemorative coins. I only have one from here at the mo, however I do rather like this coin. Celebrating the Diamond Wedding anniversary of Queen Elizabeth II & Prince Philip this was (I believe) the first six sided coin (of the Pound Stirling at least). Personally if they were to replace the £5 note with a £5 coin, this is the shape I'd like it to be although it would need to be smaller size wise, preferably between the £1 & £2 in thickness & diameter.
  11. Niue Island Rather unusual commemorative coin featuring Snoopy, although another island that issues commemorative coins, in 2009 a set of coins from 1c-$1 were issued, pictures of these to appear in the next few weeks UPDATE: Niue Islands first set of coins I believe that these may only be a commemorative or collectors set of coins but either way I rather like these, completely uncirculated, the designs have a nice amount of detail. I should point out that the white mark on the image of the 20c coin is actually a bit of dirt on the glass that I didn't notice at the time when scanning these.
  12. Nightingale Island Another commemorative only issue, this time Nightingale Island, the coin on the left commemorates the 60th anniversary of VE day whilst the right coin celebrates the 80th Birthday of Queen Elizabeth II. These coins feature a portrait not normally issued on general circulating coins.
  13. Tokelau Another "commemorative only" Territory, this time Tokelau, of whom have the Tokelau legend & year above the Queen's head rather unusually. Coins is silver plated, unfortunately that plating has slightly worn off on the Queen's cheek.
  14. Turks & Caicos Islands Turks & Caicos Islands is one of several overseas territories/commonwealth members that issues commemorative coins only as opposed to standard circulating coins. Here is a picture of two coins from these islands, the first one is a One Crown coin from 1969 the second one is a 25 Crown coin from 2000 celebrating the millennium.
  15. Nice, liking those quite a lot, I think I have one coin from the 2000 set, the top left one that says Integrity. Thanks for sharing those pics I have a few more to upload tomorrow (Fri), I'm hoping several more turn up tomorrow so can I can get some of these sections updated, I've been holding back on my Fiji coins, so far as I've been awaiting those coins from there.
