We are flush with lovely coins recently graded by PCGS. The team have been busily photographing their beauty and a listing frenzy is on! Our advice is to take a look in your favourite website category because there has been more new items listed than fit on the newly listed coins page! Mark has also been busy tweaking the search function to make navigation of the site easier.
We’ve just had graded by PCGS our biggest hoard of gold coins yet. Mostly gold sovereigns the new coins range in dates from 1882 to 1930 and were struck at all 3 Australian Mints. All mint state (uncirculated or better) examples of gleaming gold these are quite affordable and as an investment won’t ever be worth less than their intrinsic gold value. Struck in 22 carat gold this entire gold hoard features St George on horse slaying the dragon on the reverse and the reigning monarch on the obverse. See our gold range in the Australian Pre Decimal Coins-> Sovereign & Half Sovereign category.
We’ve just added a few recently graded coins from across the ditch to our ever expanding inventory of PCGS graded New Zealand coins. Our inventory includes some top pop coins so take a look if these interest you.
We’ve been having a florin party in the office with some beautiful high grade and pretty toned Australian florins being added to our shop this week. It’s certainly a pleasure to see such a quantity of quality coins come through at the same time.
We have newly listed a hoard of Mint and security company rolls and bags in the two dollar denomination. Keep your eye on our newly listed items for more rolls and bags in other denominations to be listed in the coming month.
Collecting the $2 coin is becoming more popular with the release of more and more commemorative coins. We have just listed rolls from the first years of issue 1988 and 1989 (yes, the coins with the HH on the reverse) and the harder to find years 1992 and 1999. Then we have a run of Armaguard rolls from 2001 to 2006. Rolls and bags we have it all including the Royal Australian Mint issued collectable 5 coin bags of some of the coloured coins.
As our customers and readers know we love a good error coin and we’ve just listed up a number of premium ‘dodgy’ coins that will suit every budget. Take a look at the coolest planchet flaw that leaves a hole right through the coin, the rarely seen ramstrike dollar coin or 20% off centre one cent all in our coin errors category in the webshop.

A stable of mules have been added to the inventory of coins for sale this month, the better coins grading XF40 and AU55 by PCGS. We also added some gold coins to the shop which were quickly snapped by by a sharp eyed collector. The George V sovereigns and half sovereigns all graded mint state. A quality coin also now available is a 1939 kangaroos reverse halfpenny, a really great looking coin in a lovely high grade. Only 2 coins grade higher on the PCGS population, one in MS65BN and MS64+RB.
Our stock of 1934-35 Melbourne Centenary florins (of which we’ve had quite a few) was close to selling out so we hunted down some new quality coins grading PCGS MS65. They are now listed up.
Decimal collectors should note the 1972 5 cent in PCGS MS67, a superb grade and also a low echidna variety -see the listing for more explanation on that.
We’ve recently restocked the shop in Saflips, Saflip inserts and album pages so if you need more supplies they are currently in abundance.
