The first newsletter of March 2020 featured mostly British coins. Amongst the items of the March update were an Edward I Treasure Penny from the London Mint, 1787 Sixpence, an Edward VII Shiling from 1902, a mint darkened farthing from 1916 and a world war I coin set.
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!
The first stock update of 2020 came a little later than we had hoped for, but it did bring with it some amazing items. While one of the most impressive might have been the Victorian Old Head Sovereign, we also had other interesting items such as a 1902 Edward VII Silver Crown, a George V Hafcrown and a Billon Silver Antoninianus, from the rebel emperor Postumus.
The first newsletter sent out to collectors during the month of December 2019. In it were featured a 2004 Gold Half Sovereign, a Constantinople Commemorative Coin issued for the founding of Constantinople. a Singapore Year of the Dragon Mint Set, a United States Silver Eagle from 1988 and 1988 Trivial Pursuit Silver Coin. And because Christmas was just around the corner we decided to give our collectors some Unusual Christmas Gifts ideas.

On This Day... 24th July -Wednesday, July 24, 2019
In Coincraft's 'Telling History with Money' feature, we look back at historical events that have occurred on a particular date. The 24th of July 2019, marked the anniversary of Simón Bolivar, also known as the "Liberator" of South America. It was also on this date that Hiram Bingham III made public the existence of Machu Picchu. History on this blog will, of course, always be told with money.
