Just bought the above coin for £2.00, and as the mintage is only 19,751, I am wondering if this was a bargain.
Not telling anyone where I got it, as I may want to go back.

Do not worry about it happening. It certainly did.
I will add photographs this afternoon, when the light is better. Still dark now, then off the help on a charity van, collecting and delivering furniture.

To any sceptics, I have added below photographs of the coin I bought on Wednesday.




And to prove I do not get lucky all the time I had to pay £22.00 for each of the three coins below.
Cayman Islands 25 Dollars KM#'s 16, 17 & 18. I have also reserved KM#'s 12, 19 & 20
KM#12 (50 Dollars) has 64.94 grms of silver whereas the other 5 have only 51.35grms
None of these are yet listed on Numista, so will add them today (16, 17 & 18 only) at this time.

Wow 2 quid for that is certainly a great deal. That one is 30 quids worth!

Cayman Islands coins have now been added to the Numista website and have been validated. Will add the other two after Christmas, when I visit the shop again.

At £2 that was a steal ... if you can get more for that price go for it.

Got a question about Aussie RAM Decimal coins? .. I probably can provide the answer. :)

Thanks for all of the replies you posted. I think I was lucky to get the one coin, so do not believe I will get anymore, but one can dream.
Just to let you all know, that the other two coins from the Cayman Islands have been added to the catalogue, so all five are now available for viewing.
