    I'm not a collector, only interested in bullion... but I figured I'd share a picture of my cute little stack anyway. 2oz away from my goal.
    Apologies for the poor photo quality, my phone has a rubbish camera.

    This is a particularly GREAT Forum,  We are all very privileged people to have found this Forum and joined.  All nice people - even the arguments are done in a (mostly!!!) gentlemanly way! 
    I'd say the system on this Forum works very well.  I can really see no benefit in trying to overcomplicate or to fix something that is working perfectly. 
    If you can't do your research and are starting out with a general mistrust of people then buying and selling is not for you.

    My first oz of gold, is there a 'better way' to stack/collect? I haven't as much money as some, plus it stops me from buying more guitars.

    When these things first saw light of day on the RM website, my initial reaction was; gimmick, gimmick, gimmick.
    Do I like them? Would I want to keep them long term? Can I make money flipping one or two? Do I need to own one just in case they go exponential and I can't get one in the future for love nor money.
    All these questions and emotions went through my head and tbh still do to a degree.
    I decided not to bother getting any of them. None of them grabbed me enough to want to have one in my collection. I couldn't be bothered buying any to flip short term; The longer term? I have enough exposure to sovereigns and PMs as it is and don't want to sell any of my current coins in order to buy these.
    My opinion, having seen the pics and vids of these:
    Piedfort: Looks like a proof, was always going to, don't see the point and don't think they'll do well long term. Short term, OK though.
    BU: Nice mintage, lovely finish but am I the only one who thinks the thick rim surround and plain, shiny edge is just bloody awful?
    To me, it's not a sovereign. However, I still might have to get one just in case I learn to love it
    5 Pounds: I actually like this one, the finish is great and to have the original Pistrucci G&D design in that size is awsome. I would prefer to have the proof but this is a cheaper alternative. The double sov is probably adequate in this respect though and to have 5 sovs worth of gold and money tied up is probably excessive. Don't think it will do so well long term as not many people collect £5 sovs.
    Conclusion: I agree with @Numistacker, the BU is probably the best option for all the reasons he states. I will be interested to see how it does longer term when all the hype has died down and it becomes simply a collectable coin, or not
    In the end, as others have said, it's all personal taste and opinion and don't buy anything you wouldn't want to keep long term, just in case. However, those who bought to flip or to keep their options open should do ok.

    i agree with you %100 
    gold coins - full sovs and 1/4oz  best size to buy in my opinion,,

    Still going strong. Have cleared it from all the now old money that is not legal tender anymore.
    Forgot how much it was, around 5300SEK. That is £453 more or less.

    Received a couple of days ago but have had trouble with my SD card reader.
    My first submissions for any kind of grading. Decided to initially go with PCGS as they grading weeks in Paris and accept submissions at coin fairs. These were dropped of at Birmingham on the 11th June.
    A bit disappointed not to get one PR70 from my 6 krugers and not to get two 70's for my 2017 proof sovs, but hey, I'm greedy

    Hi, thank you for all the recommendations. It has been very hectic this week. If any forum members need a fast response, please send me a notification or a DM as sometimes I get a 'little swamped' and might miss the query. Lubi - I can't get hold of you, your emails keep bouncing back.

    If you want to be the first to hear about new products from us you are best to sign up to our mailing list. We try to offer our customers a saving on the RM's RRP, which doesn't always go down well with the RM, but there is usually a several week wait until we receive the stock. If you want coins immediately you would be better to pay the higher prices and buy direct from the RM.  We had anticipated high demand for the three new coins released on Monday and were rather disappointed by the low allocations that we managed to secure. We could have sold these coins five times over as I'm sure The Royal Mint could have too. We are negotiating a couple of smaller allocations for the £5 BU coin and the Strike on the Day sovereign, as soon as we have some definite news we will be contacting everyone who has registered their interest. We are still waiting for a definite confirmation on the Piedfort Sovereign, again as soon as we have news we will be in touch with people on the list.
    Whilst we usually ask for more than we will be allocated, it is sometimes quite difficult to gauge exactly how popular new products will be and occasionally we do get caught out and get a larger allocation than we sell. (Don't mention the Prince George 2nd Birthday silver proof £5 coin to Lawrence, we still have boxes of them!). 

    We're always happy to help, just give us a shout - you might have to shout loudly as every time someone in the showroom says Lesley, I think they're saying Lizzie. The joys of getting older
