The Chinese New Year came and went on 31 January with much fanfare and celebrations accompanying it. The Year of the Horse replaced the Year of the Snake and to celebrate this auspicious occasion, The Royal Mint elected to mint a special commemorative silver £2 coin.

gI 122004 horse2014 Hallmark Coins investigates why mules are so special to numismatists the world over

Nothing special about that really, although in this instance, in a bizarre twist of fate and with a large degree of irony, 17,000 ‘Year of the Horse’ coins ended up becoming mules.

Making them incredible collectors pieces for astute numismatists who have been able to spot the difference between the mule and their intended counterparts.

In numismatic circles, a “mule” is a coin or medal minted with obverse and reverse designs not normally seen on the same piece. These can be intentional or produced by error. This type of error is highly sought after, and examples can fetch steep prices from collectors.

In this instance numismatists may have struck the jackpot, as there have been not one but two errors when it came to the minting of the Britannia silver bullion £2 coins and the Year of the Horse silver bullion £2 coins.

Approximately 17,000 examples of the 2014 Britannia 1-ounce silver £2 coins were struck with an obverse die intended for the Royal Mint’s inaugural Lunar bullion issue, celebrating the Year of the Horse in 2014. In addition, an estimated 38,000 examples of the Year of the Horse 1-ounce silver £2 coin were struck with an obverse die intended for the Britannia £2 coin. A slight mix up but one that means coin collectors will be scrambling to get their hands on one of these two rare coins, now made even rarer.

Elliot Basker, Online Business Manager, Hallmark Coins, said, “This is not the first mule that we have seen produced and it certainly won’t be the last. Whether intentional or not, human error can often lead to a great windfall for those numismatists out there lucky enough to get their hands on one of these extremely rare coins.

“It is one of the few times in business where a mistake can lead to profit and not a loss. For those investors or collectors out there looking to buy or sell one of these special silver £2 coins, we recommend that you keep your eyes on the Hallmark Coins website or make use of ourfree coin valuation service.”

On standard examples of the Year of the Horse coin, no dentils are found about the rim; the standard Britannia coin has dentils. All Britannia coins are supposed to have dentils inside the rim on both sides of the coin, while both sides of the Year of the Horse coins are designed without dentils.

The Royal Mint confirmed the existence of both error coins, though an official did not specifically refer to either piece as a “mule.” Calling the dentils “edge decoration,” Jenny Manders, a spokesperson for the Royal Mint, released a statement noting that, “Some of our recent bullion customers may have noticed a slight change in the design of the edge decoration of our UK 2014 £2 Britannia bullion coin, and the UK 2014 £2 Lunar bullion coin. The quality and value of the coins remains the same.”

There as of yet have not been any confirmed sales of either mule coin, although several of the Britannia design with the improper obverse are currently offered at online auction site eBay.com and the United Kingdom platform, eBay.co.uk. Buy it now prices ranged from about £350 to £415.

That said, both 2014 coins are .999 fine silver, matching the new fineness adopted for Britannia bullion coins in 2012. Diameters, weights and other specifications are the same. So keep your eyes peeled for them.

Urban Cyclists are turning to online bike shops this summer for wider selections of urban city bikes, lower prices and are enjoying the shopping experience without having to haggle with a salesperson. Sites like Bikesdirect.com are fully stocked for 2014 and are making it so easy to buy online with geometry and height charts for each bike, free shipping and no sales tax; internet savvy urban cyclists say their purchase was a no brainer.

Dallas, TX (PRWEB) June 19, 2014

gI 85573 city bikes3 Urban Cyclists Turn to Online Shops for City Bikes This Summer

Urban Cyclists are turning to online bike shops this summer for wider selections of urban city bikes and much lower prices than their local bike shops can offer. Sites like Bikesdirect.com are fully stocked for the summer and customers are scooping up all types of urban city bikes and hybrids to enjoy while the weather is warm. Customers on bizrate.com have cited the ability to shop without having to haggle with a salesperson was a major draw as well.

Most consumers are comfortable with buying pretty much anything online and that includes bicycles. With geometry and height charts for each bike, free shipping and no sales tax for the majority of the U.S., sites like Bikesdirect.com have become appealing to consumers of all ages.

Internet savvy urban cyclists especially are flocking to the web to scoop up the latest city bikes that their local bike shops just don’t have the ability to offer at such low prices. Urban cyclists are concerned with saving money, their health and the environment and are certainly familiar with shopping online. Other bizrate.com reviewers say their purchase online was a no brainer. Shopping from one’s couch is more appealing to this generation it seems. Choosing a size based on the height charts in the listings is very easy and the site can then ship the bike right to the customer’s front door for free. All of this without having to talk prices and warranty with a salesman. All of the specifications, reviews and photos can be found online with the click of a your mouse.

Urban cyclists, as concerned as they are with spending their money wisely, have learned that setting up their bike and making adjustments is actually much easier to do than professionals make it out to be. Ordering online, setting up the new bike in a living room or garage and getting out on the road the following morning is just that easy. WithYouTube videos on bike setup and adjustment, riders are deciding to teach themselves how to do it. This way, while out on the road, a rider can fix their flat without panicking or having to walk to work.

So if purchasing a new bicycle is on the brain, online bike shops are proving to be less intimidating than most once thought. Customers are very surprised at how easy it is to find, purchase and assemble their new city bicycle just by watching a few YouTube videos. Not only will one feel empowered with their new-found mechanical skills but they will no doubt have the best summer yet while riding around town with friends on a sweet new set of wheels.

Building off the success of its award winning 94Fifty Smart Sensor Basketball, the company has advanced its digital sports technology platform beyond the smartphone and tablet. This is the first team-sport application for Google Glass that communicates with an object that enters free-flight.

Dublin, OH (PRWEB) June 17, 2014

gI 77378 94F P000 iOS InfoMotion Sports Technologies Releases 94Fifty Smart Sensor Basketball Glassware

nfoMotion Sports Technologies (http://www.infomotionsports.com) announced today the availability of the 94Fifty Smart Sensor Basketball Glassware.

Building off the success of its award winning 94Fifty Smart Sensor Basketball, the company has advanced its digital sports technology platform beyond the smartphone and tablet. This is the first team-sport application for Google Glass that communicates with an object that enters free-flight.

“The addition of Glass as a medium to receive and immediately report shooting results combined with the 94Fifty Smart Sensor Basketball allows a hands-free training experience for players at all levels,” said Michael Crowley, CEO of InfoMotion Sports Technologies. “We continue to bring athletes the smartest and most advanced sports products that measure both the quantity and quality of muscle memory skills for high-participation team sports such as basketball and soccer.”

94Fifty Smart Sensor Basketball uses its patented point-of-force technology to help athletes more rapidly develop muscle-memory. The basketball measures key motor skills, learns the strengths and weaknesses of players at any level, and adapts as the player improves. While wearing Glass, basketball players receive visual and audio shot feedback in real time for skills including shot arc, shot release speed and backspin. With a range of over 100 yards, the basketball communicates with Glass via Bluetooth to display key metrics necessary to build better shooting skills – fast.

The 94Fifty Glassware instantly overlays shooting data into the field of view for the shooter or coach to help the user visualize the quality of each shot. The data makes it easier for the player to adjust mechanics, improve shooting range, develop a softer shot, or simply become a better free throw shooter. It can be used by the coach watching the player, or by the player practicing on his or her own.

The Glassware includes three key shooting analyses tools:

  •     Shot Arc Analyzer – Soften your shot for more consistency by learning to shoot with ideal arc.
  •     Shot Release Speed Timer – Increase scoring opportunities with more shot attempts by always shooting at game speed.
  •     Shot Backspin Analyzer – Improve accuracy by developing a strong wrist for better follow through and a shooters touch.

The powerful suite of sensors inside the regulation size and weight basketball, the most advanced of its kind in the world, measures skill precisely, and quickly utilizes that data to prescribe proven, personalized methods to improve mental coordination and skills that have been traditionally impossible to measure.

The 94Ffifty Smart Sensor Basketball has received industry recognition since its launch. Most recently, it has been named a 2014 Award Finalist by the internationally renowned Edison Awards™, as an International CES Innovations 2014 Design and Engineering Awards Honoree for the 94Fifty Smart Sensor Basketball in the Embedded Technologies; Gaming Hardware & Accessories; and Health & Fitness categories, as well as a finalist in the 2014 Bluetooth Breakthrough Awards.

Current 94Fifty apps are now available for Glass, iOS 7 and Android, and give athletes the ability to share their achievements with friends, family and coaches via social media.

The 94Fifty Smart Sensor Basketball and Glass are sold separately. Glassware for 94Fifty is now available at the following link: https://glass.google.com/glassware.

The 94Fifty Smart Sensor Basketball is available online at http://www.Dickssportinggoods.com, Apple retail stores nationwide, http://www.94fifty.com, Amazon, Eastbay.com, and Apple.com as well as other select retailers. The 94Fifty Smart Sensor Basketball sells for $249.95.

2011 group gold silver coins 275w GoldSilver.org VP Applauds New OK Law Recognizing Gold and Silver as Currency“America’s Source for Pure Gold & Silver” vice president Ken Hansen says Oklahomans can now buy gold and silver coins without paying sales tax, thus leveling the playing field with stocks, bonds and cash accounts.

Fort Worth, TX (PRWEB) June 10, 2014

Oklahoma’s governor just signed a law that classifies gold and silver coins as currency, thus eliminating the sales tax on such items, according to a June 5th article published by Oklahoma’s News Channel 4.

GoldSilver.org has issued an investor alert to make residents of Oklahoma aware of the new law, and GoldSilver.org vice president Ken Hansen believes investors will take immediate advantage of the relaxed regulations.

“You don’t pay sales tax on stocks or other investments, and the government does not charge sales tax to put cash into the bank, and gold coins are investments as well as currency,” Hansen said. “Until now investors in the Sooner State were at a disadvantage if they bought gold and silver coins because they were taxed on the purchase, but Governor Fallin’s signing of this bill into law is proof that not all lawmakers lack common sense.”

Oklahoma’s new law changes the classification of gold and silver coins to currencies, but a provision in the law allows merchants to opt out from accepting gold and silver coins as payment for goods or services. “This law was not passed so you could go to the grocery store, the gas station or the realtor’s office with a bunch of gold or silver coins,” said Hansen. “Gold and silver coins are now considered legal tender in Oklahoma and the real advantage is that buyers of such items will no longer have to pay state sales tax.”

GoldSilver.org is a North American market leader for gold and silver investments for home delivery or within retirement accounts. They buy and sell all sorts of investment-grade gold, silver and platinum.
