    A bit of gold porn, the bars are starting to arrive (from Canada). Due to shipping insurance limits they ship each bar individually and 2 packages at a time. I have another 2 bars due for delivery tomorrow then another 4 bars to come soon. Would be cool if I end up with 9 different mints Also got a peli case so when all the bars arrive I can pop out the foam squares to fit the bars correctly.

    Coins confirmed as real:) they did not use an XRF, but have highly accurate scales - they were happy to buy them outright or loan on them there and then so that's good enough for me. We have debated selling two and keeping two, but have decided that they are really nice condition and will be good to keep as coins for a rainy day fund so going to keep them all. finding 4 sovereigns on ST Georges day of all days just seems like it was meant to be. Thanks for the advice everyone, kept me sane whilst waiting!

    Today I received.....

    Picked up a couple of IOM 1 ounce Nobles - 2016 gold and the platinum from 1987 (middle of the Noble platinum run which went from 1983-1989, 3000 mintage for 1987). Have to say - the gold noble has instantly become one of my favourites ! Took further advantage of the long drop in platinum $ price in early October (to lowest in 6 months) to pick up another ounce, this one a Canadian 2016 maple, and for metal diversity I got my first palladium coin - also a 1 ounce Canadian maple, from 2005. Interesting to see that the palladium is quite a big bigger (less density than platinum). Also from Scottsdale - a 5oz chunky silver bar, and then the pretty awesome Chad King Tut 5 ounce Egyptian Relic Series with its chiselled look antique finish. From MCM when they got them back in stock - a few slabbed PF70 silver moon festival medals, which I was initially immune to ...but now appreciate more for the sheer detail packed into the 1 ounce. Two Asahi 10 oz silver bars - nice to see how they kept some elements of the Johnson Mathey design, but added some new design features. Core stack. Finally - a batch of QB Lion gold quarter ounces (still picking them up ...as I reckon they still hold a lot of collector potential). I am going to look closely under a loupe to see if any deserve grading. Need to lay off the PMs for a few days😉..but especially enjoyed the dip in platinum, while adding to the collection and the stack.

    So they arrived, 1989 Quintuple BU, and 1837-1897 3oz gold medal. The medal is now the best coin in my whole collection without any doubts, no proofs or rare dates compare to this, pictures or words cannot describe how this coin feels in hand! The relief on the old head side is just ridiculous. I think i may have to make a video showing the "turn" on this coin The 1989 Quintuple is in near-perfect condition, small blemish on rim of reverse is the only flaw i can see so very very happy with it!

    Now that I've got a few mins. Yesterday's slabs. 2017 Pristrucci 3 coin set, Strike on the Day and BU 5 Sov all came back 70. 2005 Australian Sov was originally treated as bullion so 69 or less was expected. The centennial Bi-Met Sov got a low grade due to the milk spotting on the silver. Pleased with the 70 on the £1 and the £2 was as expected. The coins from that set were not mint. All the 1/10 China Lunars came back 70 so happy with those.

    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

    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 £. Decided to buy from RMB as it was only £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.

    Smoking or Sovereigns

    As a long time smoker I decided to stop. I put the £7 cigarette money I would have spent each day into a jar. At the end of the month I would have around £200 in cash. Adding a little to this I would buy a sovereign each month. I now have a small collection of 16 sovereigns and it seems like I have just changed addictions.

    Yes, I have all shields bar 5-8 or something, and so far I'm at 50% of everything else . I believe i can get to 80% of the total in a year or so. Sure the rest will get harder and more expensive to acquire but game on. edit: Added a quick phone pic, when I get time and a bit closer i'll take some proper ones of the run

    Second package. It took ten days for me to receive my 2017 silver libertad BU coins. I got the 2 oz and the 5 oz coin from a local shop but couldn't find the fractional coins, so I had to order them on ebay. Now it matches perfectly with my 2017 gold libertad BU 5 coin set. Looking at the photos I think maybe I should have used the direct fit capsules rather than ait-tite ones.

    So I finally got around to presenting these 1/10th brits, using a box from the RM and a custom insert (9mm deep high grade felt with 3mm base), fits perfect! Yes yes it's incomplete, but won't be long before it's done :D. Photos were rushed but i wanted to share, they really do look so good all together in person

    Back to coins.... Some old gold and some new, some platinum and silver too😀. A few gold quarter ounce QB Dragons/Griffins and 2016 Libertad proofs (some for members on the Forum), along with a 2016 Perth mint sovereign. Will think about grading some of them in pursuit of 70s! Another ounce of Pt - this time the 2016 Austrian Philharmoniker, which I bought actually right on the price dip in early January....so well pleased with that, and a nice big coin. Then silver - a stackers tube of 10 QB dragons, plus a few extras for capsules of the dragon and Griffin, and a slabbed Dragon. Happy to report that no milky ones in the tube (I checked!). Shelled out the cash for a silver PF70 QB Lion one ounce proof, and a few more in boxes - now I see why everyone goes gaga over this proof design 😉. Some more irresistible 2016 Libertad silver proofs, and a few 2017 kooks (1 ouncers and a doorstop 10 ounce) and 2017 Britannias for good measure when the silver price dipped. The old gold: "mission accomplished" on the sovereign mintmark set as I just found a nice Ottawa C 1911 sov to complete the set. The Bombay I 1918 I picked up last week made me focus on that missing Canada one😊! 1911 C by far the most common of the Canada years (1908-1919), but at 257,048 minted that is still a pretty low % out of the 40 million minted worldwide that year (numbers from goldsovereigns.co.uk). Got it along with a very nice 1912 London sovereign, and a 20 francs 1897 Lucky Angel. Lindeman.

    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

    So over the last two years myself and Christina have been building up a very modest little business with a focus on excellent customer service, affordable prices and a great selection of all types of pre owned jewellery. We are trying our best to grow and evolve and I felt it time to share with the forums our little Business. We are currently Ebay based only, but will be moving onto other selling platforms and building our own website. We currently have over 650 items of silver jewellery (and a few gold) From a stacking point of view this will be irrelevant as all our items are not suitable for investment, however should anyone ever see anything they like for themselves or as a gift for a loved one we can offer silver forum members a 20% discount if bought through the forums and paid by Paypal friends and family passing all our savings on fees we pay on ebay and paypal. So I present - Dorset Jewellery http://stores.ebay.co.uk/dorset-jewellery

    My 3-coin 2017 sov set came today from @arshimo2012 many thanks. I don't think the coins are totally perfect, they seem to put more effort into the box, which is very nice . The box manufacturer/team should send some of their guys to package the coins. Also a few 1/10 2017 elephants, 1995 proof IOM angel 1/20 Then a half sov 1843 weight, I had few glasses of wine and not sure really why i bought it, it's just interesting
