Deadly & Dangerous is 15 and the big cuddly tarantula carries the baton for Australia Hard to believe that Deadly & Dangerous is now fifteen years old. A testament to the popularity of the subject and of the seemingly endless supply of malevolent creatures that populate the Australian continent, it's fair to say the series doesn't command the attention it once did when the iconic 2006 Redback Spider [...]

Star Trek coins boldly go for a neat change, with the Perth Mint's new Holey Dollar and Delta After an initial period when the Perth Mint was the only coin producer issuing Star Trek themed product, it wasn't long before the convoluted world of licenced franchising added the Royal Canadian Mint to the mix, followed last year by the New Zealand Mint (of course!), although that latter company has [...]
