Extinct Predators semi-numismatic silver bullion coin series gets a boost with multiple new releases An interesting, if pricey addition to the limited mintage silver bullion market, AllCollect's 'Predator' series was an eclectic mix of subjects from the natural world, brought to life with a mix of finishes on the same face. All were one-ounce 0.999 silver coins, [...]

By |2020-10-13T21:04:19+01:00October 14th, 2020|Categories: Allcollect, Quicklooks, Bullion, People, Silver, Cameroon|

Not a well known bullion coin producer, AllCollect have mainly confined their efforts in the field to their semi-numismatic 'Predators' range of sixteen coins. Their latest effort is another one that skirts the traditional bullion coin market, rather than diving right in. A higher-end bullion coin, with a 6,500 mintage, a 1 oz weight and a Certificate of [...]

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)

By |2020-07-16T16:17:07+01:00July 16th, 2020|Categories: Allcollect, Quicklooks, Bullion, Nature, Silver, Congo|

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 [...]
