First class .. they look brilliant, and are a fitting tribute to members and landowners alike.

Hello 'JC Maloney' ::g Congratulations to the 'Loughborough Coin and Search Society'. That's a very fitting tribute for the Club's 'Golden' Anniversary. A club member having produced the design is a very nice touch. ::g Perhaps in another 50 years time, the odd one will appear on the MDF!

All the best. Regards ss47

I like the idea that some of these could be lost in the fields, being found by a detectorist and posted on here...... only for Allectus to reply with the answer within 20 seconds.
Great coins ::g
