A quick update of our updates. There are many small ones not outlined here, but these are the main additions to our existing guides. It’s important to let you know that once these profiles and guides are published, they aren’t just left to languish and die, but are actively renewed on a regular basis. In some cases, like the aged Star Wars coin guide, they get completely refreshed to take advantage of the general evolution of the site look.
We do have plans for more, and I’m thinking that a themed guide to dinosaur coins might be pretty popular, although as always, we’re open to suggestions. I’ve heard that domed coins might be an interesting choice, Royal Australian Mint bullion, maybe one rounding up football issues for the upcoming World Cup, or even meteorite coins. I’m open to suggestions, as always. Bullion and Coin profiles will continue, but have suffered since late 2021 because of the flood of new issues taking up so much time. Clearing that backlog continues. I often promise new guides here, but I’m going to forego that this time, as we miss them more often than not, lately.
I also have to apologise for small site outages. We have an issue with one of our plugins flooding our host server resources with scheduled tasks that has been a real pita to track down. I’ve found an excellent, and reasonably priced developer to fix it, and I think it’s almost there. It’s been a real drain on time and enthusiasm, as my knowledge of backend processes isn’t top drawer, but it’s in good hands now.
Thanks for reading. The site should be back to a more balanced and regular selection of articles now, and we’ll have a couple of Quicklooks up later today. Please feel free to donate if you like what the site brings to the hobby. One of only a couple of remaining affiliate schemes, the Perth Mint, has just ended, so we’re down there, and it’s a tough grind even with it. Fortunately, our advertisers help, without whom we couldn’t continue. Thank you all.
Have a great week, and keep collecting! Mik
