    G'day Folks,

    On offer today some great Old-School Gold pieces from Australia (an '83 Koala $200, so "young'n" of the crowd, but stylish & wearable), Canada (a gorgeous 1/4oz AGW $100, of '76 Olympics history), South Africa (a '67 2 Rand, the "new-school" version of the Sovereign) and Cook Islands (well, Australia :p... a '75 Bicentennial $100, 8.64gms AGW) :)

    Auction finish at 17:00 AWST (18:30 NT/SA - 19:00 QLD/NSW/VIC) - Thursday the 23rd June :D

    ALL Lots finishing at the same time!! *With the usual "5 minutes after Final bid" actual finish for each particular Lot (Forum Timestamp used) *

    Any valid bid for a particular Lot extends the Finish for ALL Lots!!
    ie. The Auction will be Officially over once ALL bids have finished!!


    *No edited Bids, please :) the Forum does indicate "edited" when posts are edited (look above the "Quote Reply" right hand side) so if you make a bid and it turns out the same or lower than a previous bid please place a new post for the bid to make it higher rather than "edit" the post with the unsuccessful bid - although editing to clarify a Lot # is fine :oops: *

    Due to no "seconds" showing on Forum time-clock :rolleyes: any duplicate bids with the same timestamp will be "first in line" gets the spot ;)

    All Lots Starting at UNDER SPOT price!!! :eek:

    Postage at Winner's Choice/Cost/Risk (at this stage...)

    BONUS – FREE 1/4oz Golden State Mint Copper Round(s) for winner(s) of Multiple Lots :cool:

    I wouldn’t worry too much, most are probably waiting for the thrill of 5 pages of beat the buzzer or waiting for other contenders to fall asleep
