Just returned from a couple of days in South Wales (Llantrisant) visiting the Royal mint. Being a coin collector, there was a UK 50p coin issued celebrating the UK leaving the EU and yesterday was a chance to actually 'press' this coin. Special packaging for this pressing added a special touch to it and I got three! As for South Wales itself,all I can say is ....Beautiful and wet!

I wouldn't immediately have known what a numismatist was if I hadn't seen a story on BBC News about them over the weekend. I've collected the odd coin or two but mainly I have just inherited them from other people. I'm planning on buying the new Queen £5 coin but since finding out you can't actually spend collectable coins like real money (not that I would), the shine has been taken off my plans for collecting more.
