By |2022-05-09T22:27:48+01:00May 9th, 2022|Categories: Quicklooks, Banknote / Foil, Lunar Calendar, Gold, Silver, CIT Coin Invest, Mongolia|

We're going to be honest straight from the start, nobody does minigold coins as well as Liechtenstein-based producer, CIT. While many other mints have embraced the half-gram gold coin format, none have issued so many designs, across so wide a range of subjects, or have so comprehensively integrated them into their wider range. The great majority of CIT's [...]

First deployed on 16 May 1991, the Polish Border Guard is tasks with securing the territorial integrity of this Central European nation. Few nations in Europe have had the tumultuous history that Poland has, not just through the 20th century, but for hundreds of years before that. The land and sea border of Poland is currently 3,511 km in [...]

In 2016, coin innovators, CIT, released a one-off coin incorporating an unusual design. Struck to look exactly like a bottle cap, it was issued to mark 500 years since the introduction of the Bavarian Purity Law, which strictly regulates what ingredients can be used in beer. It was two years later that this new concept became considerably more popular, [...]

Mint XXI have joined CIT with a new batch of releases, and as one of the few producers on the same level, we look forward to seeing them every bit as much. We're obviously swamped with new issues at the moment, but we'll do our best to filter them in over the next couple of weeks. Fortunately, we have [...]

Part of yesterday's Spring Launch at CIT, their annual Lunar Calendar range continued with the debut of a trio of new issues, as varied in format as last year. Headlining the 'Sweet Rabbit' range is a super little fully dimensional silver coin, of an ounce in weight. These have always had a quite unique style of their own, [...]

As is typical, a day after we went live with our look at a pair of Titanic anniversary coins, another interesting issue was released, this time by MDM in Germany. It's a cool piece, worthy of coverage, so while the topic is still fresh in our minds, here it is. This is a five ounce silver issue, and fits [...]

Fender Stratocaster in Surf Green silver coin (2022 MTB/PAMP)

By |2022-04-26T23:29:22+01:00April 26th, 2022|Categories: Quicklooks, Culture, Coloured, Silver, PAMP, Solomon Islands|

MTB/PAMP are returning to their hit Fender licence with a revival of the two-coin guitar-shaped series that finished in July last year. That series consisted of a one-ounce Stratocaster, and a one-ounce Telecaster guitar. They appeared to sell very quickly indeed, and in conjunction with a small range of solid silver guitar picks, have picked up quite [...]

Chibi Mortal Kombat – Scorpion & Warriors – Viking (2022 New Zealand Mint)

As you know, we've started to confine our coverage of new Chibi coins to our TV/Film round-up articles, and to the huge Coin Series Profile we have, but we like to give a heads-up when a new subset drops, and today is the day for that. As usual, this pair of coins is the second to launch this month, [...]

By |2022-04-26T16:43:46+01:00April 26th, 2022|Categories: Quicklooks, Bullion, Australia, Nature, Silver, Perth Mint|

One of the more recent additions to the Perth Mints copious animal-themed bullion coin portfolio, the Wombat series debuted just last year with a neat little silver coin that seemed to be reasonably popular. It's back again, and it follows the classic Perth Mint process, honed over decades of Koala, Kookaburra, and Lunar coins, of depicting the same [...]

Rectangular Australian Dragon bullion coin (2022 Perth Mint)

By |2022-04-21T11:13:20+01:00April 21st, 2022|Categories: Quicklooks, Culture, Bullion, Lunar Calendar, Australia, Gold, Silver, Perth Mint|

Launching in 2018, the Perth Mint’s striking Rectangular Dragon bullion coin series was a pretty departure from the mints typical nature-themed ranges. Available in both gold and silver forms, each an ounce in weight, they carry a new design every year, with quite some variation in artistic style. The 2022 design by Monique Reeves is a fine one, [...]
