Okay, this round-up was planned to come out yesterday, but as usual, I bit off more than I could chew again, and we ended up adding more and more coins to it. The bullion coin market continues to be extremely vibrant, full of new releases, many of which are reaching very high standards of quality and design. There’s another wide variety of offerings here, from national mints and private producers, in both gold and silver.
Our highlights are the KOMSCO Korean pairing, the Royal Mint’s ‘Little John’, and the Bird of Paradise coin, although all of them are decent issues. I hope you continue to like this format of coverage. We simply can’t have separate articles for everything, and a lighter-weight coverage is better than none at all. Please leave your views in the comments. These round ups are a huge amount of work with image editing and collation, as well as tracking down relevant details from multiple sources. Not everyone sends us nice and neat press releases, sadly. It also helps to know what collectors like.
Possibly tomorrow or Thursday, we’ll have a similar round-up of all the latest TV/film themed numismatic issues, and we’ll definitely have at least one photoshoot up this week. I’d hoped to do those superb tank coins, but it seems inappropriate to be showcasing Russian tanks with what is currently going on. The Pobjoy Mint Hippo coin will definitely be up, and we’ve just had Germania Mint’s new ‘Hildegard’ bullion coin in, so we’ll be shooting that one tomorrow. All go here! Enjoy.
