About The Coins
Q) What is Proof Finish?
A) Proof finish refers to the fact that the coin has been struck four times to produce a brilliant mirror finish quality with frosted relief. This is the highest quality product available.
Q) What is Diamond Finish?
A) Diamond Finish refers to the fact that the blanks have been polished before striking which means that they are not proof quality. Cupro Nickel Diamond Finish coins are struck once in a polished blank.
Q) What is Bullion Finish?
A) Bullion finish refers to coins that have a matt finish and have been struck once. They usually don't have an issue limit and have a "U" mark on them.
Q) What is Uncirculated Finish?
A) A term used to denote coins that have a lower quality standard than proof as they have only been struck once. These coins have not been put into general circulation, however, they can have small imperfections.
Q) Should I clean dark or dirty coins?
A) No, we highly recommend that you contact us or a specialist so your coins can be cleaned. We recommend that you do not do this yourself.
Q) How can you tell the difference between an Uncirculated Cupro Nickel and Proof Sterling Silver coin?
A) You are able to tell the difference between an Uncirculated Cupro Nickel Coin and a Silver coin by carrying out the following test. If you lay a sheet of tissue over a Silver and a Cupro Nickel coin, the Silver coin will shine through as white whilst the Uncirculated Cupro Nickel coin appears duller in comparison.
