  1. 1987 two coin britannia set. I really like it
  2. Picked up a 1987 two coin proof Britannia set for a decent price. A firstfor me so looking forward to receiving them :-)
  3. I guess I might not have phrased it very well. I was more referring to designs that come in to their own in a larger size. Perhaps the question is silly but I reckon their are coins that have that phenomenon. I do like the idea of a proof double sov or proof Brit,
  4. I was just looking to canvas some opinion on half oz coins and which designs lend themselves to this coin size? I'm looking to buy a half oz next month but my gold stack is entirely made up of sovereigns and half sovereigns at the moment. I was looking at perhaps a half Britannia but my buddy has a quarter britannia and I found the design just a bit too compressed for my liking, I assume a half would be better but I could be wrong. I was thinking of just getting a double sovereign but that's perhaps a bit boring. What else would you guys recommend? Krugs, Maples Etc?
  5. It was! However it was sold as 'proof design' rather than proof and was only £2 more than a new 2017 bullion sovereign so I guessed this was the likely reason.
  6. A couple of high seas medallions and a rather worse for wear 1980 proof sovereign.
  7. I was planning on just picking up a random bullion but the price was close enough that I thought it was worth the extra couple, literally, of quid to see something a bit different.
  8. Picked up a 1980 proof sovereign from Atkinson's. It'll be my first gold proof coin so interestedto see it in the flesh.
  9. I recently got a sovereign from HGM that I weighed at work on a very sensitive balance and it came out at 7.85g so it must be fairly common on older coins. I shouldn't worry too much.
  10. More Ebay arrivals.
  11. Some more recent Ebay purchases. 1993 5 pound proof and three 1.1oz sterling silver proof medallions from the Mountbatten High Seas Collection, which I only bought as they were going for spot but I really like and will have to start collecting the other 97!
  12. Thanks! I don't know much about these coins but i'll have to look in to it because it definitely won't be my last!
  13. An Ebay pick up. My first silver proof coin. I think the reverse is especially cool.
  14. This months pick ups. 1982 half sov and a couple of silver crowns
  15. How do you guys store your 1kg gold bars? no capsules seem to fit.
