Spink 2020

Posted by: R. Ingram Coins on 2020-01-14

A few days ago we purchased the new Spink. People who follow us on Facebook will know that we take a very keen interest in what Spink say, because however wrong they might be 90% of collectors believe what they say and we have to deal with the consequences of that. Over the next few weeks, I will look through it with a fine tooth comb, to see exactly what they have changed, and how their prices have gone up or down. I have however had time to have a brief look and will make the following observations:

1) There are a lot more pages in both books. The regular has grown from 546 pages to 602; the Decimal has grown from 256 to 272.

2) The Milled grades and values are now done as a single column, rather than as two previously. This looks pretty shocking initially as I am just not used to it. The result however is to make the pages look less cluttered and it seems to me a good thing

3) For the first time you can buy the Decimal book on its own, you no longer need to purchase both. Price wise most retailers are charging about £30 for the main book and £10 for the Decimal book.

4) I have only had a very brief look at the prices, but what I have seen is prices edging downwards rather than up, although the introduction says overall prices have remained stable throughout the year. For the first time in a long time Spink has actually priced Maundy sets post 2005, they have however seriously underpriced them! Just one example - they have the 2019 set listed at £400. You cannot get that set anywhere for less than £1000, so expect some irate collectors to be having a moan as the year progresses.

Our January 2020 catalogue has now been uploaded, do visit the site and see what wonderful goodies are on offer. https://www.ringramcoins.com/
