By |2021-06-16T23:55:32+01:00June 16th, 2021|Categories: Quicklooks, Coloured, Movies & TV, Silver, NZ Mint, Niue Island|

Time for the first batch of Chibi coins for June and perennial Star Wars favourite Obi Wan Kenobi undoubtedly takes pride of place. The Star Wars sub-series has easily been the best selling to date, so its no surprise to find out this one is already pretty unobtainable. If you can pick one up, its bound to be [...]

MICKEY & GOOFY BULLION (2021 NZ Mint)

By |2021-06-11T13:34:13+01:00June 11th, 2021|Categories: Quicklooks, Bullion, Movies & TV, Gold, Silver, NZ Mint, Niue Island|

The New Zealand Mint are, through US dealer APMEX, today launching their latest Disney themed bullion coin - the 14th to date. There are several undefined, but themed series running through this range and the coin we're looking at here is one of the 'Mickey &' issues. Depicting Mickey Mouse and Goofy, it fits in with the [...]

MINI MONEY KOALA MINIGOLD COIN (2021 Royal Australian Mint)

By |2021-06-03T13:51:59+01:00June 3rd, 2021|Categories: Quicklooks, Australia, Gold, Nature, Royal Australian Mint|

A popular format these days, although not especially at the Royal Australian Mint, the half-gram minigold coin will no doubt continue to be so at a time that gold is showing some increased vigour. Everyone collector likes a bit of gold in their collection, and while minigold coins are not the greatest value for money on a [...]

THE MINIONS: STUART SHAPED COIN (2021 The Coin Company)

By |2021-06-01T17:11:24+01:00June 1st, 2021|Categories: Quicklooks, Coloured, Movies & TV, Silver, Niue Island, The Coin Company|

One of the greatest animated creations of all time, in my view, The Minions, a group of seemingly immortal 'henchmen' for the most evil person on the planet, have starred in multiple smash-hit movies over the last decade or so. Bright yellow, short and with a distinctive language all of their own, their misadventures have proven hugely [...]

PONTE VECCHIO BRIDGE SILVER COIN (2021 Mint of Poland)

By |2021-05-28T20:42:48+01:00May 28th, 2021|Categories: Architecture, Quicklooks, Gilded, Silver, Cameroon, Mint of Poland|

Built in 1345 to replace wooden, and later stone bridges that had stood on the site for almost four centuries, the stone closed-spandrel segmental arch bridge over the Arno River is one of the most popular attractions in the Italian city of Florence. Covered from end to end with shops selling jewellery, souvenirs and art, it's a [...]

HARRY POTTER & THE HALF BLOOD PRINCE POSTER COIN (2021 NZ MINT)

By |2021-05-28T15:24:24+01:00May 28th, 2021|Categories: Quicklooks, Coloured, Movies & TV, Silver, NZ Mint, Niue Island|

We haven't covered these for a while, so here's a heads up that the sixth Harry Potter movie poster coin, Harry Potter & the Half Blood Prince, is now available from the New Zealand Mint. These one ounce proof silver coins feature a colour reproduction of the movie poster used to advertise it on its debut release. [...]

WONDER WOMAN 1984 & MINNIE MOUSE CHIBI (2021 NZ Mint)

By |2021-05-25T01:40:13+01:00May 25th, 2021|Categories: Quicklooks, Coloured, Movies & TV, Silver, NZ Mint, Niue Island|

More Chibi coins today and the late May pair extends the fledgling Disney sub-series, 'Mickey & Friends' with a second issue, Minnie. The more interesting of the pair is the debut of yet another new series, and one we're not sure warrants it. Wonder Woman 84 seems quite a niche subject for a seperate series. We'd have [...]

50TH ANNIVERSARY OF WOMENS RIGHT TO VOTE (2021 Swiss Mint)

By |2021-05-19T11:55:17+01:00May 19th, 2021|Categories: Quicklooks, History, Gold, Politics & Finance, Swiss Mint, Switzerland|

The latest gold coin from the Swiss Mint celebrates an event that probably should have taken place considerably sooner than it did. In 1971, after having rejected the notion just a dozen years before, the Swiss people finally decided to let women have the right to vote. Seems amazing that in a progressive European country like Switzerland that [...]

THE MANDALORIAN: THE CHILD (2021 NZ Mint)

By |2021-05-15T17:12:42+01:00May 15th, 2021|Categories: Quicklooks, Coloured, Movies & TV, Silver, NZ Mint, Niue Island|

The Mandalorian coloured silver coin series from the New Zealand Mint seems to have been a good seller, no surprise given the huge popularity of the TV series. The star of the show to date is without question 'The Child', also known as Grogu, or Baby Yoda (which it isn't), so it's a surprise that we're four coins [...]

MASTER CHIEF & GANDALF CHIBI (2021 NZ Mint)

By |2021-05-11T16:47:07+01:00May 11th, 2021|Categories: Quicklooks, Coloured, Movies & TV, Silver, NZ Mint, Niue Island|

 Chibi is back like clockwork with the first pair of May issues now available to pre-order, The first is of little surprise, Gandalf the Grey the latest in the Lord of the Rings sub-set. This is the third of Tolkiens characters to get the monster-bonce treatment, and you can see the franchise gradually taking priority over Harry Potter, [...]
