Re: ANDA Brisbane Coin Banknote and Stamp Show May 26th & 27th

I will try and go but apparently there are no spare Jeep parts anywhere in Australia so my car is off the road until 25 May.

However they have already given me two dates for my car being returned to me and both of those have shot by!

Thanks for the discount vouchers, I got a letter in the post but no mention of any discount.  If I start a fight at the entrance I will know it is you playing a practical joke.

I hope to get hold of some purple dragons so I can swap them for some other coloured dragons from the other shows but if I can't get down then I am not worried.

Might see you there!

I'm definitely going - actually my daughter & I (while Mum is away overseas, we're going purple dragon hunting ... well buying hopefully if the queue isn't too long and spanners hasn't bought them all already!).

Thanks for the discount voucher hiho! See you there?

I'm going to print them out and sell them for $1 outside the door until I raise enough funds to buy an ounce of gold smile

I like your thinking wink


I don't have an attitude problem.
You have a problem with my attitude, and that's not my problem.

Political correctness is a doctrine, fostered by a delusional, illogical minority, and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end

Re: ANDA Brisbane Coin Banknote and Stamp Show May 26th & 27th

Well DAMN is all I can say. On Friday my wife got a flat tyre. No probs I say to myself. It's not one flat tyre. It's one flat tyre and one bald tyre. Wheel alignment and two new car tyres later I'm reminded by the mechanic that the car is overdue a service and not a little overdue either. So service + CV boot + new battery + brake line + power steering thingy = no point in me going to the coin show sad x $1000

Here's an important question ... if we're not dealers, are we allowed to bring in a small cigar box sized collection of coins for sale/trade into the show?

Theirs that Purple Dragon for $90.00 if that floats your boat, personally I'll pass. 

The only reason I'd attend is to give feedback too the Perth Mint staff on how many ways the mint sucks but I'm not going to go out of my way to do that as they are not worth the effort or admission fee.

I am guessing they have the mobile press there, to do the counterstamping.

Re: ANDA Brisbane Coin Banknote and Stamp Show May 26th & 27th

ASE @ $39
Kooks @ $40, 10@ $380
'93 carded Kangaroos @ $40

A few silver bars

Plenty of sovereigns.

No queue at the purple dragons and no customer limit.

Big queue at RAM, assumed it was for the mobile press.  Probably was, you queue to pay for the mint your own, then you go up to the mint your own machine and push the button.  I know a few people from the coin collecting forums were taking orders for them, I had an order for 3 but the guy cancelled, saved me a wait.

I got there about 10 minutes before the start, queue was running down the street, my wife estimated around 150 in front of us, I would have put it no more than 100 or so.  Got in (thanks for the money off vouchers Hiho) went straight to the Perth Mint to get the purple worm.  A few people milling around the stall but no queue, went straight up and bought some dragons in the mid 20s.

Once again parking was crap, had to go to the local shopping centre, bought some coffees and the have a decent deli there so I feel no guilt.

The show prices were about $10 more than the same items last year, e.g. a large album for $45 when last year the same guy was selling them for $35.

The Panda display was one of the better displays, one of few that was there, usually a lot more of them.

A couple of stackers there as well, probably quite a few, we really should work on a badge of some sort!

Bought my dragons, had a quick look around, didn't buy anythng else, didn't get anything at the mobile press (it used to be $3, last year it went up to $10, I don't rate them that much), won't be going back next year.  (unless they have the snake privy Dragons as a show special)
