  1. It's great when you get something for nothing or really cheap
  2. First the disclaimer, I only know about these sites becaues I found them while googling for information about coins and medals and signed up to be a member much the same as the members of this forum most stuff found on line I think is random chance you search for something specific and end up with something usefull that you were not actually looking for. I have used both of these sites for a few years now one site I use for all the more common coins in my collection just so that I know what I have the other I used for my main collection which I then sort into themes and sub-collections. Ne
  3. I heard of mis-strike coins but this is the first time I've had one in my change.
  4. I've bought a couple more. 200 years since the birth of William Wyon. http://www.neocollect.com/item/8331/ Centenary of the Royal Navy Submarines. http://www.neocollect.com/item/8332/ There are quite a few others and some with coins and medals by different company's but I'm going to stick to the Royal Mint Mail issues as I have some produced by a Mercury distribution company with coins on and there are loads of them and I feel you have to try and draw the line somewhere when collecting.
  5. Could anyone tell me what W J H is the signature for on the obverse of this medal just under the King.
  6. http://news.sky.com/story/1097997/queens-head-her-majestys-changing-face Just thought it was interesting.
  7. I've been getting up close and personal with my coin collection, looking for mint marks and designer signatures and I've noticed that there are differences in the striking of coins even if they look the same. The Royal Mint and the Pobjoy Mint have used the same effigy of Queen Elizabeth II 1971-1984 by Arnold Machin. At a casual glance the obverse of the coins produced by both mints look the same but close inspection of the detail of the coin shows that the Pobjoy Mint obverse is not so detailed as the Royal mint version. The hair in the Pobjoy strike is smoother with less strands of hair
  8. Ive just received a cover this morning with a medal in and I've put all my other stamp covers and Philately related collectables here. http://www.neocollect.com/coll/6417/
  9. I've recently discovered that there are a lot of coins and medals included in first day of issue stamp envelopes from around the world and some are not to badly priced does anyone collect these? If you do are there any that would be more collectable than others? I've got some distributed by Mercury they seem to be quite common and I have seen some distributed by Benson. Most have an issue number on the envelope I know that will be for the number of envelopes issued and not the coins does anyone know what he maximum issue figures are for these envelopes. My main coin/medal collecting theme is t
  10. We used to have Wellington on the five pound and it was removed because in these times of the EEC it was not thought a good idea to commemorate wars a the defeat of fellow partners. Some Churchill medals and coins http://www.neocollect.com/coll/6403/
  11. I have a bronze medal by Anton Scharff a picture and information can be found here, http://www.neocollect.com/item/4790/ A newspaper article published and the time the medal was stuck say the medal was not for sale to the public and was going to be given to friends only. The medal was struck for an American printing firm to commemorate the Guttenberg press. I was wondering if anyone else has seen this medal in books or in collections? Does anyone know how many friends Mr. Hoes had? (a clue to mintage.) I understand that Anton Scharff was supposed to be one of the better sculptors so
  12. Does anyone know the mintage figures for this medal? http://www.neocollect.com/item/7503/
  13. I also have a set of 1962 Republic of South Africa coins, of these coins this is the lowest mintage at 8,745
