COCO EDITION: GECKO (2020, AllCollect)

By |2020-08-10T09:11:30+01:00August 10th, 2020|Categories: Allcollect, Quicklooks, Anguilla, Gilded, Nature, Silver|

As I may have mentioned before, I've got a special affinity for the Caribbean island of Anguilla, having lived there for 1½ years over a decade ago. However, modern precious metal coins are few and far between. The only one that regularly springs to mind is the lobster coin in Scottsdale Mint's 'Eastern Caribbean 8' annual bullion [...]

PREDATORS: 3 NEW ADDITIONS (2020, AllCollect)

By |2020-08-01T19:46:57+01:00August 1st, 2020|Categories: Allcollect, Quicklooks, Bullion, Nature, Silver, Congo|

We've been digging around for information to bring our coverage of AllCollect's wildlife-themed silver bullion coin series, up to date, and these three here should bring us to that state. An interesting mix of finishes marks out 'Predator' as something a little different from the norm, with a part incused, part reverse-proof footprint/bodypart, a mirror proof style background [...]

AllCollect taps into Smartminting tech for the ‘Trapped’-like Shroud of Turin

By |2020-07-28T21:31:26+01:00July 28th, 2020|Categories: Allcollect, Culture, History, Silver, Cook Islands|

The great numismatic experimenters, CIT, issued a hugely popular and very unusual coin at the 2018 World Money Fair in Berlin, called 'Trapped'. It's hard to describe the style, but I guess a face pushing up from below a fine mesh would be pretty accurate. However you want to describe it, it was a fantastically original piece of coin art, [...]

PREDATORS: CHEETAH BULLION (2020, AllCollect)

By |2020-07-22T11:22:42+01:00July 22nd, 2020|Categories: Allcollect, Quicklooks, Bullion, Nature, Silver, Congo|

Next in the wave of new entrants in Allcollect’s Predators bullion coin series is Acinonyx Jubatus, the Cheetah. Using the same mixed finish of an incused footprint that is partly reverse-proof finished, a matte finish foreground, including the animal subject, and a mirror proof style background field,  they remain quite unique. This one is the sixth release [...]

PREDATORS: RATTLESNAKE BULLION (2020, AllCollect)

Just last week we did a Quicklook at Panthera Tigris, the fourth issue in Allcollect’s Predators bullion coin series. We noted at the time that several other issues were in the wings, appearing at various places in a fairly haphazard way, but we'll cover them as they go for sale. First of these is the only reptile [...]

PREDATORS: PANTHERA TIGRIS BULLION (2020, AllCollect)

By |2020-07-08T15:00:36+01:00July 8th, 2020|Categories: Allcollect, Quicklooks, Bullion, Nature, Silver, Congo|

Allcollect's Predators bullion coin series continues apace with the fourth issue, Panthera Tigris, or Tiger. An unusual series because it employs a range of finishing touches that are rarely seen in the predominately brilliant uncirculated finish competitors. Each issue has an incused footprint that is partly reverse-proof finished, the foreground of the main coin has a matte [...]

2020 UNA & THE LION 1KG SILVER (ALLCOLLECT)

By |2020-05-13T13:40:25+01:00May 13th, 2020|Categories: Alderney, Allcollect, Quicklooks, Culture, Silver|

Una and the Lion is one of those classic British coin designs, that comfortably sits alongside such numismatic icons as Britannia, and Pistrucci's George and the Dragon. Famed sculpture William Wyon did the original art for this way back in 1839, and it was the first time a reigning monarch had been depicted as a fictional character [...]

AllCollect adds the Puma to its range of multi-finish silver bullion coins called Predators The third coin in AllCollect's bullion coin series, Predators, has been launched and this time out features an impressive big cat, the Puma.
