In response to an individual using illegal auto-refresh technology on Jan. 15, Britain’s Pobjoy Mint “sadly had to make the decision to no longer give any indication of when some new issues will be released,” it said in a statement following the incident.
The auto-refresh technology – a browser extension that automatically refreshes the user’s Internet browser – crashed the Pobjoy website, which was taken completely offline during the company’s investigation.
“In the future, if anyone is seen using this technology or other methods to cheat the system they will be automatically banned and their orders will be cancelled,” reads a statement issued by Pobjoy.
“We are delighted collectors are looking forward to our new issues but request everyone to act fairly. We appreciate this is due to the actions of a minority.”
