    Just my 2 cents, but I think it's best to let arguments play out to conclusion (as long as it's about a topic, not just personal); healthy to be able to express ones thoughts 
    If it was a unique topic about something never talked about before, yes would be a shame to derail it, but there's already been dozens of these types of threads (no offence OP)

    According to Arshi's timeline the £5 sovereign and piedfort aren't due till August, so it would be veryyy early for them to be in the gazette, I would guess it's not the sovereign.

    This thread reminds me of the old skool football forums I used to frequent. I'm betting it's just a matter of time before someone comes out with the classic "DM me your details for a kicking"

    I am over the moon delighted with my 2017 Bullion Sovereign received in the mail today.
    Amazing packaging, the coin handled with the utmost care and attention.
    So for me in terms of value for money and customer service this is the best Sovereign purchase in 2017!

    I was more interested in the ST George & the Dragon £5 gold and £5 silver piedfort coin 
    I wonder if it's going to be an alternative G&D design to mark an occasion? 
    Imagine if they do the 2017 design again with the garter... fuc*ers  lol

    I think you just naturally soak up a lot of information reading the forum and watching YouTube videos etc
    You learn what coins call out to you and then it's a pleasure learning more about them, rather than a chore.

    Stacking silver never seriously interested me; 1500oz of silver would be so much more difficult to store, move around and sell vs 20oz of gold 
    I don't think I could call myself a stacker now, I'm more a very small scale numismatic opportunist 
    I don't feel compelled to buy anything, I just wait for the right coins to come along that I think have a chance or being worth well beyond their issue price
    In the past year I've only really purchased three things of note
    2017 proof sovereign, 2017 SOTD plain edge garter design sovereign  2017 Indian sovereign (when they were for sale not too much over spot) I should trust myself more and buy multiple of things because all three were a very good bet
    You can't control spot price, I feel like there's a lot more control of your destiny with numismatic stuff, I like it not being a total gamble. 
    In summary: I would tell myself don't buy anything, just learn about numismatic coins, modern and old, and wait for interesting new releases and deals to present themselves
