    Kman reacted to shortstack68 in Gold sold - my lessons learned   
    The semi-numi should be used to make a gain and pump profit into whatever it is you're buying.
    I made a £2200 gain in 6 months on a hammered gold coin (although I t was rare). I also sold a PF70 Rwanda Rooster for triple what I paid, so it's not a bad deal buying into semi. Of course what works for you might not work for me, but what works for me is certainly working and can take a little time, but I'm in no rush, but bullion is bullion, tied to spot whereas numismatics is a completely different ball game altogether and the 2 shouldn't be mixed up when buying if you're strategy is just bullion stacking
    Interesting to hear that diversification wasn't good, I would have thought having different designs and mints of whatever would have been better than selling the same of a certain coin such as 200 Sovs or 200 brits etc

    Kman got a reaction from Goldhooked in London Mint Office "sovereigns"   
    The Royal Mint tried to trademark the word "sovereign" for coins but it was refused
    Anyone is free to call whatever coin or medal they like a sovereign.

    2013 sovereign issue price £390 selling on Ebay £350 - fees

    etc
    Since they're all the standard design, nothing very interesting, I can't see why they will go on to have any meaningful premium in the next 50 years either
    If it's a unique design like the 1989, 2002, 2005, 2012, 2017 they're well worth getting, or it has some other kind of unique quality like the SOTD's this year then sure, might be worth getting

    I just meant if a special design is released in future like those mentioned it will probably be worth picking one up

    If you aren't happy with it, ask for a replacement 
    I think they come in tubes to the dealers? so scratches and dings aren't going to be too unusual though

    I dont know if this is true or not but  I got told that shining an LED light over a coin will highlight any potential milk spots.  I shined my light over my silver proof QBs and they come up clean.  But, as an example when i shine a light over my new African Leopard notice the difference around the tail area?  Will these turn into full blown spots, who knows but a lot of my bullion coins seem to have these marks.

    On Sunday I sold a few items on eBay in order to fun this eBay purchase that ended tonight. The grades are not the very best but these are very rare.




    In 1923 there were 655 proofs minted and a smaller number of business strikes. The business strikes were made to order from local gold bought to the mint.

    Started collecting coins about 7 years ago and stacking silver about a year ago.
    My stack consists of 50 1oz silver Britannias.
    I have collected  several commemorative silver sets and one annual set.
    I also have about 15 graded and slabbed silver and gold coins. 2 of these are US gold commemoratives, 1886 s $10 gold liberty/eagle, 2017 I/4oz gold ms70 kangaroo, an ungraded 1/4oz queens beast lion and various slabbed silver coins most of which I had slabbed myself, along with several ungraded coins and associated tat.
    I'm hoping to get to know people in the know and learn where I can get the best deals ( buying and selling ) my coins.
