In my latest video I unbox the ultimate tribute to Decimalisation.

ONLY 125 collectors can own it worldwide, and 60% of the edition limit has already sold.

And I wanted to show you just why this set is proving to be such a hit with collectors.

After all, it is the perfect way to remember Decimal Day and the biggest change our coinage has ever seen.
