It was wonderful for Minted UK to meet so many Doctor Who fans from all corners of the globe. It was an exciting & exhausting three days for us and we were very impressed by the costumes that many people chose to wear.  We caught a couple of great images of some iconic figures in the series and one also of the NZ Mint stand which Minted-UK (wo)manned on their behalf.

It was at the 50th anniversary at ExCeL that many new items from the Doctor Who range were introduced – the first hint of the Monsters Series gave many fans a chance to vote for their favourite enemy to be minted in 1/2 oz silver. These have now been immortalised in 1/2 oz silver with the last in the series due in the UK late in June 2014. Check out our free frame offer for you to house this series – simply click on any one of the monster images and then follow the blue instructions on the page.

The TARDIS and Fob Watch sets were positively flying out and the TARDIS in particular reached a sell-out status from this event.

 

We are delighted to be working in collaboration with the NZ Mint to create a presence at the BBC’s up & coming 50th Anniversary Celebrations for Dr Who at the ExCeL Centre London on the 22,23,24th November.  For those attending, you will be able to purchase all of the NZ Mints officially licensed Dr Who products at the show and have the rare opportunity to have your collectible products signed by the doctors attending the show.  Wow – imagine your coin’s certificate autographed by your favourite doctor!!!  Confirmed doctors attending the 3 day event so far are

We simply can not wait for this event.

We’re especially pleased to announce we are now Authorised Resellers of products from both the New Zealand Mint and the Mint of Austria. Many of you are familiar with the New Zealand Mint through either its Kiwi and Taku bullion coins, or its numismatic products such as the blockbuster new Dr Who 50th Anniversary coin and we’ll either stock or be able to get their coins at some good prices moving forward. Less familiar to many will be the Austrian Mint. As part of the EC, the currency of Austria is the Euro and their products are denominated as such. The Philharmonic bullion coin is one of the worlds most popular, but their collectible coins are less well known in the UK and we hope to change that. A case in point is the new Prehistoric Life series of silver coins. Very affordable with some great, equally affordable collectors boxes, this mint puts out coins produced to what can only be described as being of the highest of qualities. The first prehistoric coin is absolutely superb and can’t be recommended highly enough, so much so that we have started to collect these ourself.

Our closer ties with these mints should allow us greater and earlier knowledge of upcoming products, as well as being able to offer better prices and availability. We hope you enjoy these exciting products.

Sharon and June are happy to welcome you to our new and improved website. As you can see we have a new, more modern look, greater functionality and a wider range of products and payment methods.

The new range will continue to grow every week and feel free to sign up to our newsletter that will go out twice a month with new products and deals to help stay up to date.

As usual, if you have requests for coins please contact us and we can source for you quickly and competitively.

We recently had the pleasure of selling our first one-kilogram gold coins to a customer. Top of the line was the Perth Mints special Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II – Diamond Jubilee 2012 1 Kilo Gold Proof Coin. With a limited run of just 60 pieces worldwide, the lucky buyer has joined an elite group of owners. There are only a few in the whole of the UK.

Coming with a numbered Certificate of Authenticity and Special Edition Presentation Packaging, the coin is struck from a full kilogram of 99.99% pure gold. Almost 14mm thick and over 75mm in diameter (almost three inches!!!), there’s little chance of it getting lost behind the sofa cushions….

 

We recently had an open evening hosted at Browns restaurant in Bluewater, Kent. We had a good turnout for a select few of our initial clients many expressing surprise at some of the new coins available on the collectors market today. We’ll be hosting further open days at the same venue moving forward so keep watching here or sign up for the newsletter to be informed as to dates.

 

Minted-UK will have a stand tomorrow at the Brighton BabyExpoUK in the Brighton Racecourse & Conference Centre. We’ll be right by the door and having a launch of our new Kids coin gifts, such as the Silver Panda and the Baby Sovereign.

Sarah Jane Honeywell from CBeebies will be at the show along with lots of other products for your little one. See you there.
