In June 2020 we posted ‘For Your Eyes Only’ listing all NINETEEN ‘gold signature’ sets completed during the previous year. For future reference here is a catalogue of the FORTY-FIVE sets completed during the unforgettable lockdowns of 2020 and also where they ended up in the world. Unsurprisingly, it turned out to be a very productive year.


Here they are in no particular order. An asterisk indicates the set is still available at the time of writing, all others can be found in the Archive Gallery. All sets are accompanied by our ‘silver signature’ Certificates of Artistry. For more info on the CoA’s see our January Chessay.
