I say this every time, but I always underestimate how long these bullion round-ups take to put together. This one was due out yesterday, but here we are anyway. It’s a great selection, but doesn’t cover everything we know about. The Royal Mint’s new King Arthur coin will come this week, and we really should have a look at the Lunars, but this is a great cross-section of the bigger issues from all over.
There are some big guns, like the perennial Somali Elephant, and the ninth Prehistoric Life release, but the bulk are some from the burgeoning limited mintage market. Highlights for us are the next Australia’s Most Dangerous coin from the RAM, the second Fiji Cats coin, and a quite extraordinarily nice Icons of Inspiration coin, featuring the world’s most intelligent loo brush, Albert Einstein.
This is our tenth round-up, and one we intend to keep going, despite my hatred of actually putting them together, and we’ll also continue with the Pop-culture coin round-ups, (music, movies, TV), as well. Both are better for my brain, which often struggles to come up with something original to say about the 20th coin in a series, as you can imagine, and I don’t suppose reading my ramblings is any more enjoyable. Hope this one introduces you to your next purchase or three.
