Hi people,

I am looking to buy a copper/silver coin - English 2p one side, 10p on the other. Can anyone recommend the highest quality version and dealer?

Best wishes,

Ross

Hi Ross.

There are two types available. One is made with a two pence and ten pence coin (similar to a traditional c/s gaff) - these are available from many, if not most, uk dealers.

The other is a ten pence, with the heads side plated in copper - these are sold by Propdog and may be exclusive to them.

I personally prefer the former, made from two coins. I think they're all pretty much the same regarding quality.

I got mine from a magic shop advertising on ebay, and was only about a tenner.

If you have any other questions regarding the coin, I'd be happy to answer them for you.
