Before we get to the stuff below, let me make a quick statement. We provide free news and resources. You can comment and you enter a name and email with the ip address it came from. Outside of that we know nothing. We don’t sell to you, although if you click on an affiliate banner to the Perth Mint, Royal Mint or Royal Canadian Mint, we get a tiny percentage of the value of what you buy. I never know who you are or even what you bought, and it doesn’t cost you a cent. The rest of our adverts are simple images and links. No tracking or funny stuff and always related to coins.

Just enjoy the site and realise it’s one with no funny business. Outside of Google Analytics telling us numbers of visitors and what’s popular etc. (critical to keep the site relevant) we’re not Big Brother.
