No, the Royal mint is doing a series called The Queens' Beasts and they are being produced in more than one finish.  On finish is and antiqued finish with a limited mintage of only 150 pieces each.  Some coin doctors are artificially antiquing regular finish coins and trying to pass them off as the rare ones.  So he is saying that if you buy one of the antiqued ones make sure it comes with the COA from the Mint.  (Haven't seen the COA. wonder how difficult it would be to fake it as well?)
