Hi Rony - for me as someone who has just started collecting coins your site is extremely useful. Thank you. 

My query - recently the mints announced sale of some commerative coins. Some of the same are available on online sites around the same price particularly the ones like braille...

Please advice - where should one buy from and is there a pitfall in buying from an online dealer. I also notice that these  coins sold by online dealers have the description cards - but most do not state who issued them.

Many thanks

Dealers selling coin sets are essentially resellers of mint's products rendering purchases from either the same product although recently a few dealers have started making coin sets privately. To distinguish between official mint sets and private ones, see ICN photo gallery.
