Just got here

Just got here (1/6)



  1. My search continues … still hoping to pick up the 1982, 1996, 1998, 1999 or 2002 sets to complete my collection. Its taken over nearly 15 years to get to this point, so close but yet such slow progress in the past few years. If anyone can help please get in touch
  2. Thanks but this information is incorrect. I went there in person.
  3. 3 years later I’m still haven’t got the 1996, 1998, 1999 or 2002 sets. Kinda frustrating. Not even a photo! Hopefully my luck will change soon. In the meantime if anyone can help ... I would be very happy. Regards
  4. This missing the following sets 1986, 1996, 1998, 1999, 2000, 2002 if anyone has a lead on any of these years I’d be delighted to hear from them
  5. Jamaica is a former British colony and between 1869 and 1969 (exactly 100 years which is a nice coincidence) GB produced coins for use by people living in this island. Although the island became independent in 1962 it was 1969 the independent Jamaican government started to produce their own coins with prominent local people on the obverse. Coins were not produced every year but in only 56 of those 100 years. Only 3 coins were produced, the farthing, 1/2 penny and penny. And over those 56 years a total of 145 different coins were issued. And I now own 142 of them. Just those elusive 3 to go! So if anyone can help, please do.
  6. So I am down to only 4 coins left in my 7 1/2 year quest to collect every JAMAICAN coin minted from 1869 to 1969. I only need the following: 1903 1/2 penny 1914 1/2 penny 1914 penny 1928 1/2 penny Any help with these would be greatly appreciated!! ​
  7. Is anyone else outraged by the huge price hike of these annual sets. These used to be called the executive set and featured proof versions of the annual circulating coins plus a few extras and retailed for about £50 about 4 or 5 years ago. Then came the rebranding and repackaging followed swiftly by the re-pricing. The cost virtually doubled within a couple of years of the rebranding and I purchased the 2015 set from the RM for about £150. Yesterday I was told I need to pay nearly £200 for the privilege of continuing my collection with the 2016 edition. Now don't get me wrong they are beautifully packaged and attractive but I just don't get the reason for the increase in price. Nothing else of significance has been added to the set that I can see, maybe others can put me right here. But maybe its time to admit end this collection here and start another chase ...
  8. 18 months after my first and last post on this forum i am making my 2nd post. I have followed Britcoins quest with envy as he has gobbled up target after target. I am still no nearer getting the 1998, 1999 & 2000 sets that I need. I do have the 1996, 1997 and 1991 which i agree with Britcoin are hard to get. As for the 2002 I agree I would pay good money for a photo :-) as i too do not believe this exists. It would appear the Bank of Jamaica has given up on making any more proof sets although they still churn out the occassional silver and golf proofs. Normally to celebrate, quite rightly their outstanding athletic prowess - hence the commemoration of the World Junior Championships - this was the event that launch Usian Bolt, so maybe they had a feeling he was going to be great! Back to my coin quest - if anyone can help with those 3 sets i would be most grateful ... Have fun collectiing ....
  9. I have read this thread with interest since I collect Jamaica proof sets with a passion. I have every set since 1969 excluding 1986 which does not exist, don't ask me why and 1996 which I've never seen. I also need 1998, 1999 and 2000. I'm fairly certain there is nothing after 2001. Would it be great if either the Royal Mint or the Bank of Jamaica could issue a definitive statement to thus effect. These institutions produce coins for us collectors but then offer such poor customer service in this regard. I hope I'm as successful as britcoin in tracking down missing coins.
