    Got the proof Paddington Bear set in solid silver and colour, also have a 2oz silver coin of ‘the queens beasts’, 1oz silver Britannia, 1oz silver Canadian Maple Leaf, James Bond 1oz silver bar, several silver sovereigns, 2 22ct gold half sovereigns aswell as many many others, my collection is becoming quite large and very nice indeed. One of my favourites in my collection though has to be my 1935 King George V rocking horse crown, graded VF in quality.
