It's been awhile since I logged in. High grade coins are hard to come by and they are expensive. Manage to get hold of one for the moment though.


Below is a raw Q Victoria 1871 5cts.

Conditions - Lustred UNC with undercoat shine. (Could not capture the actual beauty of the coin)

Mintage - 62,000


Waiting to have it slab.

Been away for while on a hunt and manage to get a Kg George V 5cts 1920 Copper-Nickle. This may not be rare but it's a scarce coin, especially in un-circulated conditions This coin was to replace the 5 silver due a legal tender act as quoted in http://www.obsoletecoin.com "Due to "The Legal Tender (Supplementary) Enactment 1918" issued on August 1918, the issuance of the 5, 10, and 20 cents coins of lower silver (.400 fine) silver content. It proved difficult to produce 5 cents coins of sufficient size and reduced weight to be easily portable. A new 5 cents coin in Cupro Nickel was minted in 1920 and the silver content change to .600 fine after 1920"
