    Just saw the photo but no other details available. Are these rounds e.g., from old kook sets, or what did I miss?

    Yep thanks, it's similar but not exactly the same :) I have one of those in the sales ad but I can't seem to find which set these exact medals/rounds(?) belong to.

    Not quite the centenary medallions either, but close. So maybe just another medal/medalet variant. (photo: beyond)

    I have a few of those left facing swans medallions/rounds.

    Fine Silver pieces in case with cert.

    Possibly the fine silver medallion you get engraved at the exhibition, ie blank on the other side?

    Thank you @bron.suchecki - most helpful. I just had not encountered these before. Live and learn.

    When I worked for the Perth Mint in Sydney we had bags of those, ended up melting thousands.
