Sorry @tray , and they seem to be getting a bit hard to come by. There are proof versions being sold by Liebhard Edelmetalle and Muenzdachs (the cheaper one) on eBay, and a number of BU versions, but they are pricy. Also, you have to be prepared to use eBay. Fingers crossed that one of our members has one they will part with.

Apart from the Oak Leaf, there's only the Chestnut Leaf (which is gorgeous) out so far. As you're probably aware, the Linden Leaf is due out this year, with the Beech Leaf due goodness knows when.
Incidentally, if you're a Germania fan, there's a picture of the BU Fenrir on their website now.

They are never in any rush to release anything

No, they're spending all their time minting coins showing young ladies with improbable attribute or big beefy blokes in bearskins. Can you guess I'm not a great fan? I love the mythical Forest and the Beasts though, and I do have to admit that even their stuff designed to appeal to the fifth formers among collectors is beautifully produced.

OK, I'll give you the Knights of the past, which I may, but am admitting nothing, have forgotten about  wanted Germania 1f638 , but the Warriors are a bit much for my taste. As you say, though, the quality is great.

Don't blame you about the Cobra, it's a lovely series. Do you have the rest? The Rhinoceros is the next one, and I'm hoping @SilverTrader will be getting it in. It may also be worthwhile you emailing him to see if he does have an odd Cobra lurking in the background - I'm being serious now. If he really doesn't, EMK have it for €54.50, with 5% off in their Summer sale, plus P&P.
PS Take no notice of @kimchi , do not under any circumstances offer to scratch behind his ears.

A very fair call, however I do feel somewhat slighted as I hadn't even posted on this thread! lol!

@kimchi , your presence is everywhere, even where you don't post. A sort of universal ubiquity.

They do have some lovely things, and they are very good to deal with. However, if Martin has it in it will certainly be much cheaper and no postage. Plus he is very very good to deal with.
I hope you've signed up for all the newsletters, they are very informative. I've found the German dealers list things very early, albeit on a pre-order basis, and you then know what to look out for on the other dealers' sites, and make up a wish list that will terrify you.

Tell me about it. For next year my list runs to 52 items - and that doesn't take account the irresistible one-offs, the series where there are more than one issue per year and the series where I'm going for the proof as well as the BU. I sent an edited version (ie not containing the ones I knew he wouldn't stock) to Martin, and I don't think he stopped laughing hysterically for a week. Hopefully one or two are coming to an end in the foreseeable future, as I would quite like to live long enough to complete the sets.
I see a few of the Rhinos have gone overnight. Now there's a series that has appreciated since it began.

The Rhino is the fifth. The series started in 2019 with the Tiger; then the Peacock in 2020, the Elephant in 2021, the Cobra earlier this year and now the Rhino. The first three were 3,000 mintage only, and that has gone up to 7,500. Tigers are getting expensive. I've just looked and EMK has the Cobra and the Peacock, and Aurinum has Cobra (dearer than EMK), Elephant and Tiger. Make sure you're sitting down before looking at the prices. Also bear in mind that Aurinum charges a fee for using Paypal, and then there's P&P.
I have just seen the Tiger on eBay. Link below. It's a good price and postage is reasonable, but I haven't used the seller. Sometimes you need to go for things.

Do you need any smelling salts?
I would get the tiger off eBay if I were you because they won't get any cheaper. The others pick up where you can, but it is a very popular series.
