CoinWorld's Monday March 5,2007 issue carried an article stating that the owner of Coincraft stated that in order to drive interest in the collection of British coins, he is making the Coincraft catalogue which usually retails for 25£ available on the company's website for free. The website is www.coincraft.com

 

As of today 03March07, it is not up on their site. I've sent an email asking about it.

Not on the site yet. I'd bet this is one of those "I'll believe it when I see it" deals.

They appear to offer a copy of their monthly catalog (the phoenix) but want a mailing address; I'm not so eager for more mail ...

Its crap and I cannot see how it attracts serious collectors.

Coincrafts saving grace is their monumental book(s) which are packed with advice and information.

I got a response from Richard Lobel.

 

Sorry, what the story should have said that it will be available within 6

months, we are having dealers check the prices as we email and as soon as

that is complied we will put it on the website. You will see it advertised

when it is ready. It is the best single volume on English / British coins

from 1066 to date.

Ok I'm a bit confused by his response, that sounds more like a release for sale, as opposed to a giveaway.

 

Now I'm wondering if the article was supposed to say that the book would be released soon and was promoting it as a good guide. As a side note I don't see why they would feel the need to promote the U.K coin market, as it's been a Bull market over the past few years.

Not sure. I guess we'll just have to wait and see. I have a 2000 Coincraft and like it very much. I think it's a great reference book. Online would be a real asset.

GB coin is a bull market in US or in UK or GB?

 

I think they are laying the cards or notes or the recorded ones for other world coin collectors maybe only upto a point to reveal the British coin secrets of GB or UK that is not secret to Great Britain coin collectors wherever their base are or where they live.

 

I will be glad if they will compile all recorded find just like what info or records that Slab company in the US recorded their US coins and now those company are into variety,the 3 major ones I think.

The United Kingdom has been in a Bull market now with prices increasing the past three years at least in Hammered coinage and not doing too badly in Early Milled, By default Prices have gone up in North America as with the Internet more auction houses are holding Internet auctions, So a Buyer in England has more to work with because of the exchange rate, when they use North American auction's, that of course makes things more competitive and has driven prices up pretty much everywhere with Hammered coins, it's great if you are a seller with good material, thats getting harder to find, and as you can imagine not so great if you are a buyer.

 

Guides are Helpful, Spinks is wonderful, they can be a roadmap to other books and studies, but in the end they are just guides. I'm also not sure about the word of promoting a market thats all ready hot, what is more likely I think is promoting a book, I have not read their book so I can not comment on it but would welcome the chance to do so, when and if they post online, I'm just very wary of this promoting the market idea, the more I think of it, as guides should report on the market, not try and make it and promoting a market sounds less passive to me than just reporting the facts.

 

Just my two cents of nonsense :ninja:

Since you are a collector of milled coins and told us its hot so its hot,but not on other era or time or other denomination unlike US as I can comment almost all of it from top to bottom.

 

In the past I interpret that coin collecting that is mostly US base can answer all the queries of all if not most question ask but,Im mistaken for their are specialist collector in every country and different country collect their own and they are somewhat entirely different on their own and also found out that coin colleting is a century hobby now improvise by US in advent of grading and slabbing.

 

As I said I misinterpret it maybe some other novice or beginner whatever their interest may also interpret that US and GB are one or desame or the US have all recorded coins of GB for they are onced a colony in a coin since for me if you will backtrack that history of a nation a land but US goes forward with modern coins as any other countries its all up to them to decide but the 2 countries is more better ties than any other countries I know,Known as cousins for Philippines called a daugther in the past by the US.

 

Maybe you are right and Im wrong.

 

If coin collecting started a several centuries ago in europe before the america was discovered or colonies by the european that GB and other EU countries will surpass the records of all SLAB companies in the US as european are good in recording,Im talking about their coins,Yes it is recorded but not compiled as SLAB companies for they dont like slab company even one exist today just for me a opinion.

 

For me coincraft is going to that as also all the other coin collecting institution in GB.

 

If we will speculate,maybe we email them what is their reason.

 

Like email them everyday until they reply :ninja:

I am hoping that the prices for Scots & Irish coins will be updated.Their listings for Irish decimal coins still has holes in it,especially with regards to the 1988 Irish 1p. & 2p. coins,which exist in both bronze & copper-plated steel.I wonder if the Euro coins from Ireland will finally get listed.I hope that the private pattern ECU & private pattern Euro coins will get listed.

 

The Pink Coincraft catalogue should also be updated along with the Blue Coincraft catalogue.

 

What do you think?

 

Aidan.
