February brought our collectors some very exciting news! If you haven't had the chance to come to the shop or meet us in person, you'll be happy to know that you can now get to know us a little bit better on our recently published news page, which is a compilation of everything that has been said about us in the press over the last decade or so. Claire and Natalia have been working hard to put together the second edition of the 'Round the World in Banknotes' and we are glad to announce that all the notes of the catalogue are now live on our website. And yes, you've guessed it! We also had new items for you to add to your collection. A 1999 £5 Silver Proof Millennium, a 1944 Sixpence in Choice UNC, a 1994 Silver Proof 'Scottish' Pound and a Charlie Chaplin Crown were just some of the new items published.
On the day that the UK officially left the EU, we uploaded new stock to our website. Plenty of interesting items on this stock upload, such as a 1973 UK entry to the ECC 50p coin, a 2017 £5 King Canute Silver Proof coin, a 2019 Britannia with oriental Design, a Goridan Billon Silver Antoninianus, and a Pizza Coin from the Solomon Islands. See if there's anything you fancy!
