    I've been wanting the 2017 for a while because of the new design. Luckily I never did buy it and the limited 30th Anniversary Privy was recently released so it made much more sense to get this one instead for the extra few Β£. Decided to buy from RMB as it was only Β£4 more expensive than elsewhere and for that extra I would get a capsule and be entered into the prize draw. Unlike the Queen's Beasts, the capsule is not the screw type and is just a push fit with a little moon cutout for opening. Shipped yesterday with a scheduled delivery for Tuesday due to the Bank Holiday. Delivered today, a Saturday by DHL. The field design is much better than the dimply effect of the previous couple years.

    Today I received a 10 oz lunar 2 monkey to finish of the type set, been on the look out for a while now and it finally showed up on chards at a very reasonable price compared to other German dealers. I also recieved the box for them to go in, I am really happy with the box, it makes the set look that extra bit special! I might have to start with the rest of the sets now lol but there is too many series's out there and I can't collect them all

    Yes yes more shields , 8 to be exact, and 2 young head st.georges The lustre on 3 of them is incredible, hard to capture in a photograph so i tried with fingers as you can see reflection :D. I've never graded a single coin but this may be worth it. Also a 1891 Sydney half sov photo at the end, little worn but only 154,000 were minted 130 years ago and the first branch mint half sov i have i think

    None of these are mine but I did receive them. Two very very delightful deliveries as you can see ... 2 full sets of 5 proof 2017's and I am in love with the 5 sovs...these are for grading A 1902 matte proof set of 11 coins selling for a friend and going on eBay on Thursday for a 10 day low start auction.

Only need a shield back a Perth, Sydney, Ottawa and South Africa minted sov now, I might also try and get one each of the modern queen heads then I will see where I can go from there

    Just to close the chapter on the infamous 1862 "gold" $1 that came back in shame from NGC in @Numistackers recent batch. I had bought it from a reputable UK auction house, at a real auction where I had viewed the coin in hand before bidding. Having contacted them and informed them of the NGC decision they immediately gave me a full refund, with no quibbling. I wanted to share that with everyone - as I found it reassuring that they care for their reputation ( as no good auction house wants to be seen selling fakes..), and obviously while I was motivated to get my own funds back, I also wanted them to know so they would be aware in future if offered / consigned coins by the same seller. So while eBay in theory offers buyers some level of protection, it's good to know that auctions will also do the right thing if presented with evidence of a fake. And I should say that I was lucky / happy with many of my other NGC results - see pics of a few Libertads, my nice old 8 reales (still love that coin), and my favourite of the bunch - the 2005 Perth "Sydney Mint" commemorative sovereign. Thanks again to Numi for getting the coins all there / back home again (we should never take that for granted actually! ). Finally back to the US gold dollars : I should mention I have two others bought raw and ungraded (on eBay) ....but suffice to say I am nervous to send them inπŸ˜‰πŸ˜‰πŸ˜‰πŸ˜‰!

    Well I have broken my "sovereigns only" rule for my current stack. Buying all sovs and just sticking them in tubes may be a sensible approach but it got so boring. Just ordered these 3 up from Baird, at Β£1000 a coin seems like a bargain :

    From Arshi, the 2nd in the Kookaburra Evolution Companion Series and is the 2002 Evolution of Time. 5 coin series starting 2001 with Calendar, Time, Knowledge, Numbers and Alphabet. Originally proof antiqued coins with box & COA with mintage of 15k ish but this is just coin only. Shame there's a crack in the capsule. Will replace it one day. No idea why there's mention of Kookaburra. I forget how good a 10oz coin feels in hand.
