Just a few hours away from Perth Mints July coins which you can see listed below. The usual mix of proof versions of bullion coins and coloured gift coins, there’s also be a surprise not listed here. Well worth a look back shortly. We reckon the Star Trek coins are the best yet. The HMS Thunderchild coin is one struck for MNI and is a long running series with some nice designs. We’ll likely get a guide to them up in the next couple of weeks.

Very cool news, the RCM has donated another $50,000 to a Red Cross fires programme from sales of the firefighter coin in its National Heroes series. A great example of giving something back and one the mints who launch endless endangered animal coins would do well to follow.

” After selling out all 10,000 “Firefighters” coins in its 2016 Fine Silver National Heroes series, the Royal Canadian Mint is proud to announce that it has donated an additional $50,000 to the Red Cross Alberta Fires Appeal benefitting the Fort McMurray community. The Mint donated $10,000 to the Red Cross when it launched the series on May 16, 2016 and committed to donate $5 from the sale of every firefighter-themed coin as additional support of this charitable campaign.

“The overwhelming customer response to our firefighter-themed coin shows that Canadians share our pride in the men and women who selflessly protect our cities and neighbourhoods each and every day,” said Sandra Hanington, President and CEO of the Royal Canadian Mint. “We are delighted that the sell-out of our “Firefighters” coin allows the Mint to play an even greater role in supporting the Red Cross Alberta Fires Appeal and in helping fellow Canadians in their time of need.”




No new guides last week but the tweaking continues. We’ve changed the font, we think for the last time, for greater legibility. The last one was making it quite hard to spot the difference between commas and full-stops. A change in font weight didn’t really help so we’ve gone with an old stalwart that does improve things, as well as making it a little larger.

We should have a new guide later this week, although with the Perth Mint, Royal Canadian Mint, Royal Mint, and Royal Australian Mint launching lots of coins, it is quite hectic at present. Some guide updates are inevitable as we’ve always felt there’s no point producing a series profile and then letting it become irrelevent.

We’ve integrated ads. There isn’t much change from before, just more variety. We hope some of them will stay with us and help keep AgAuNEWS going. Please click when you can to show you’ve been here, the window will open in a new tab. Apart from the mint ones, we don’t get anything directly from them but our future will be dependent on them. We’ve kept them consistent, neat and relevent; none for washing machines 😉

The sponsor deals page is up and running. Check it out. Might not be anything you want, or could be something you’ve been desperate to get hold of. Worth a look as the page will be updated often.
