The fifth of the New Zealand Mint's neat little Dinosaur coins is launched today and features the controversial Brontosaurus.

A blistering hit, we thought Chibi would be popular when we saw the prototypes back in Berlin in January, but never to this degree. Now being released almost on a weekly basis, these $99.00 USD, 1oz silver coins have really struck a chord with collectors and sell out very quickly.Case in point is this brilliant Boba Fett coin, [...]
