Britannia still rules
It was eight years ago that TOKEN PUBLISHING took over the Britannia medal show to keep it from closing and this weekend we will be delighted to attend the inaugral DNW Britannia show at the Victory Services Club, Seymour Street just off Edgeware Road, London.
DNW have taken over the show, much as we did, to keep it from closing and they are doing it very much with the hobby in mind, charging neither for tables nor for the public to get in. They deserve our full support so if you're in London on Sunday, or even anywhere near close, then come along from 9.30am!
Features include: numismatic news; a "what's on" section that lets collectors know about fairs, societies, auctions etc.; an "ancients" section; "market scene" - where you can find out what has been happening in the sale rooms; information on tokens; numismatic book reviews; a banknote section and a directory that allows readers to see what lists the main dealers are offering that month.

100 Years on: We Will Remember Them
Volume 56, Number 10 / November 2018
We will remember them AS WE go to press we learn that Cambridge University Students’ Union has voted down a proposal to promote this year’s Remembrance Day commemorations, believing that to do so would be to somehow glorify war. Apparently some wonderfully right-on student “activist” instead put forward an amendment calling for references to British veterans, Remembrance Day and poppies all to be removed from the proposal, insisting that the day should instead be used to “reshape remembrance away from the glorification and valorisation of war” because all lives lost and affected by war...Find out more Free trial issue
