    Same here. Seems like they do something special and then dilute its uniqueness by repeating it :-/

    I believe the Mint Mark is the same as the 2018 Proof Sovereign.

    The "biggie" on this for me is the Plain Edge which, to my knowledge has only ever been on 1 Brilliant Uncirculated coin before now.

    I feel like the “plain edge” is going to be milked over the years; it will probably become an annual thing for some reason or the other, and it will cease to be something special.
    It was awesome last year. It’s still interesting this year. We shall see next year

    A mint mark didn't feel special enough to me to be bothered about getting one
    I think they will probably hold value, whether they will do much more than that we shall see

    It's not the first year of reverse proof libertads, but maybe it's the first year they've done a 5oz

    So, sorting through coins and as soon as I picked this up i noticed it was different. No years have fields like this that I've seen apart from some really nice strikes from the branch mints.
    The coin clearly is not in top condition, but that is besides the point.
    Points of note
    Date: 1870
    Die number: 1 - missing lower right serif
    W.W. : Relief on trunc
    Comment: There are no known die numbers until 80 for this year, only die number 1 (non proof). There is a proof example in the Bentley collection
     
    Now there is a distinct difference above that tells me in fact this is a specimen or proof as can be found in the Bentley collection, if anyone here can find that difference, do you therefore agree?

    Seriously guys you just left me totally speechless. Massive thanks to@backyardbullion for pulling this together and plotting this truly amazing surprise.






    I was so taken back and surprised tears flowed. I don’t deserve this. All of you guys are great and make this forum and the YouTube community the friendly and exceptional place it is.

    I guess you couldn’t get crown collector to make a contribution)))) if you haven’t read his comments on YouTube they are always a hoot to say the least ))

    So massive massive thanks it was amazing to see the end result and to get a preview of BYB’s brilliant video showing how these beautiful bars were made.

    Looking at prices in the 90s till now
    Gold you might have have 5xs your money if you bought then and held till now
    Silver 4xs if you managed to buy very close to spot, unless you sold everything in 2011 and then maybe 6xs
    Whilst the above is better than cash in the bank, as an investment it's not exactly awe inspiring

    I had a very vivid dream last night where I received some coins, I will bore you guys with it
     I dreamt that I won a competition with a bullion dealer where I could go through their shop for 5 minutes and they had hidden Victoria shield sovereigns, and the ones I found I could have
    I kept finding ones cut in half, which was a shame, but gold is gold
    I was also reminded id left some purchases with them and opened up a box and it was a 2012 proof sovereign set, but it had a lot of finger prints

    Kman reacted to Numistacker in My pre-1937 Proof Sovereign collection so far   
    Quite a few people ask me how I’m doing on building my proof Sovereign collection covering Sovereigns from 1937 before so I thought I would show you. Still quite a few gaps but it’s not doing too badly.
     

    1887 (mintage about 750)
     

    1902
     

    1911 with another half at NCS
     

    1923 (mintage about 650)
     

    1937
     
    I think 1893 should be doable in next six months with luck and that leaves a number of difficult or very expensive years like 1839, 1871, 1958 and these could take many years if ever...

    Kman got a reaction from Lowlow in Open Thread.   
    I had an argument with a female friend about this interview
    She seems to think by liking Jordan Peterson I am somehow being hateful to women  and that I only didn't like Cathy because she is a woman standing up for herself
    But she is someone who thinks men and women are totally the same and the only reason we're different is how we're raised
    It's very hard to argue with someone who has such beliefs and every logical point you raise to dispute it is seen as born out of hate lol
    She is a very intelligent and kind person otherwise, it's strange her devotion to these beliefs

    Kman reacted to ChardLizzie in Is this normal? Re: order with bullion company.   
    Hi, I'm here to listen and to help sort out problems.  
    The secondary market sovereigns are coins that we buy from customers. These are our cheapest bullion sovereign (not including the Grade C as these are not the same quality) and are extremely popular. There are times when we have over 500 in stock and times when we experience a delay in fulfilling orders. When placing an order for certain items - these bullion sovereigns in particular - there is a statement in red that says "PLEASE NOTE: YOUR PRODUCT WILL BE SOURCED FROM THE SECONDARY MARKET AND YOU MAY EXPERIENCE A DELAY IN DELIVERY". (Please excuse the capitals, this is how the message appears). The spot price obviously fluctuates and whilst you may have fixed at one price we will honour this whether the price stays the same, goes down or goes up. 
    I have asked management if we can put a system in place a better way of keeping in touch with orders that are not fulfilled immediately. Communication between ourselves and our customers is important and we will look into this. We are not open until Monday - excuse the delay in seeing this first post, I was off and have only just seen this. @ Goldmember if you could send me your number by private message I will call you on Monday..
