Using Copied St. Paul’s Cathedral by Robert Elderton 2005 £2 Coin Image

Copyright Theft

Perhaps we should be flattered by the number of people including dealers who continually infringe our IP (Intellectual Property) rights by using our copyright images and blatantly copying our text, word for word in some cases such as this one, but we do not find it amusing, and will take legal action against any copyright thieves.  is just one of the many  bloggers worldwide who commit copyright theft by using our copyright images without our permission. On their webpage they are clearly using our St. Paul’s Cathedral by Robert Elderton on the 2005 £2 Coin photograph.

Sample Listing

I was sorting through my loose change today and found that I had several Two Pound coins. The design of most of them is boring, but I was struck by the above, which features a magnificent view of St. Paul’s Cathedral.

It commemorates the sixtieth anniversary of the end of the Second World war in 1945 and its edge inscription bears the words – IN VICTORY: MAGNANIMITY, IN PEACE: GOODWILL, part of the famous maxim that prefaces Sir Winston Churchill’s six-volume historical work “The Second World War.”

This attractive coin is yours – for £2.

Or, you can buy the official gold proof version for £325.

Don’t make a mistake and spend that in Sainsbury’s!

What’s Wrong?

We invest a great deal of time, effort, and cost into creating some of the best photographic coin and gold bar images on the internet. We strongly object when lazy and dishonest people decide to use them without a by your leave or thanks, doing so in competition with us. It is always possible, even likely, that sellers who steal photographs do not own a similar item, and have the intention to totally defraud potential buyers.
