Letter to the Clerk of the Sub-Committee
from the British Numismatic Trade Association
Thank you for asking for comments from the BNTA
about the work of the Royal Mint.
The British numismatic trade is happy to assist
the Mint in promoting numismatics as a hobby, by selling coin
sets and other numismatic items produced by the Mint. For many
years, there has been a close working relationship in this area
between ourselves, and the BNTA has its own sub-committee devoted
to meeting regularly with Mint officials and discussing matters
of mutual interest.
One area, where the BNTA seeks further clarification
is, however, the marketing of coins produced in earlier years
by the Mint, which the Mint then seeks to re-purchase from the
numismatic trade, to re-sell in special promotions.
We attach also a letter from one of our members,
Mr John Whitmore.
