It is time to review the British 2018 silver bullion coins, now that the 2019 coins are starting to come out. In the past there were far fewer coins annually. Now, with the major mints finding a wider market for their bullion coins than for collectible proof coin, there is an increase in bullion coin designs. This increase enticed collectors to purchase a variety of bullion coins, with the hope of making a profit from the precious metals market, or from the numismatic market. It is a good way to have multiple possibilities of increasing the value of one’s coins collection.
One thing that has happened is bullion coins are affordable. Looking at the success of the Australians, producing a multitude of quality coins has a great merit. Over the last few years more and more bullion coins have come from the United Kingdom than ever before.
The lack of matching started the first year. It is a curious thing known to the Royal Mint.
For 2019 the Falcon of the Plantagenets is already known to be one issue. The strange one is the Griffin, which is just now being released, although it was an early coin. There are proof one-ounce coins as well, so these come out over a long period of time. There is a gold version and a platinum version.
blackspanielgallery, Thank you for the backstories and product lines. Did you read about the dragon-like flesh-eating dinosaur discovered in Wales three years ago and taxonomized two years ago as Dracoraptor Hanigani (dragon robber [discovered by brothers Nick and Rob] Hanigan?
Do you know what else will be released in 2019 for the Queen's beasts series? Why is the issuance in unmatched two- and ten-ounce coins this year?
