What you quote is only my opinion. I am not asking anyone to agree with it.

I get plenty of hits on Googling "art medal". Adding the word "official" doesn't help. Going through the first page of hits, I get the strong impression that "art medal" is fried air, the marketeer's equivalent of "medal" and there's absolutely no link with "official". You win or lose nothing by adding or deleting the "art" part (or the word "official"). Still, just my opinion.

The Half Puffin has arrived, and is a beautiful chocolate brown.

Thank you, I have added them to a my token coins collection, as they fall into the same 'useage' area as the tokens of the 18th century, even though they are 20th century.

Hi Guys,

Regarding the issues of 1965, I have also the Brass pieces, can any one tell me if they really rare items as they say ?

Roland,
  Can you please post up some photos of your Lundy 1965 commemorative medal-coins?

I have found the 1965 issue from Lundy extremely elusive so far.

Aidan.
