The Coin Show competition winners


Did you visit the Johannesburg Coin Show? No? Well, you should have, and yes, we can rightfully say: we told you so.  And then we told you again.

All right, we admit it. We did not notify you in advance that we’d be giving prizes at the Joburg Show. Although… the more vigilant among you, versed in reading between the lines to boot, could have drawn your conclusions after reading this Forum post, mysteriously entitled Coin Show Request to bob Sellers.

We are sure that all of you who could-have-but-still-did-not show up will mend your ways when you see what these lucky visitors to the 2012 Johannesburg Coin Show won by merely approaching the bidorbuy stand and entering their contact details.
