  1. Sovereign resources

    Tricky,the older you go back and also if you want to get into lower mintages gets very subjective and comes down to opinion on grades/condition and I dont just mean NGC, and PCGS which are not gospel truths but the grades you give to the coin and also that the seller gives it.................wouldnt be any fun if it were was easy though would it.................sorry to upset Lizzy here,dont mean to,just stating my opinion....but some of the most off the wall grading I have seen has been on Coins graded and for sale by Chards.................
  2. Niue silver 1oz Roaring Lion

    The Niue "King of the Continents" series Lion is a beauty imo,got one for a pressy as shes a Leo........dont buy silver apart from gifts.....think this design is pretty awful meself..........
  3. 1917 C sov

    You spend too much time on here Steve touch sad.....HNY matey
  4. 1917 C sov

    Where is Sovereinsteve when you need him, pm him,he'll help you out I'm sure...........For me I wouldnt pay anymore than cheapest bullion price I could find for it . Current £258 is too high in my opinion......As above the neck at the base appears to have some serious damage,like gouging and I feel exactly the same about his ear hole left of,seems like someones had a go at it with a chisel.....certainly isnt EF imo. Same thing with the £314 current bid one a little lower down the page described as a "Gem".....definitely not my idea of a Gem,pretty awful condition in my book both sides, but Steve is your man. Personally I dont understand Marshes R rating on this coin either,I know the mintage is only 58k but there always seems to be plenty of em about and at far better value than these. AH Steve beat me too it,as usual
  5. Today I Received

    Yea excellent 1911C for the price of an Atties mixed date.....good buy.
  6. Wowza I'm pleasantly shocked by that .Thanks Kman...................
  7. NK gold coins

    I like most of those,interesting thread.........get yourself a big lead lined safe and try and get hold of some of the irradiated ones when they become available and I bet they will have a hell of a return on investment as scarcity value should be excellent with most of the mintage being vaporised................
  8. Got my 2017 BU sotd plain edge sov for £430 so that is interesting to see........anybody know what price Spink have put on it in their 2018 catalogue..wouldn't have thought it would be £750 more like £5-£550,thanks in advance if anyone can tell me.Just a personal thing but I'm really keen on this coin with such a low mintage and uniqueness of plain rim,bit like marmite,love it or hate it, .....think it might be a modern one that I might get graded........probably work out I'm totally wrong,usually am.
  9. My Atkinsons Bullion Experience

    respect your opinion,maybe I'm lucky,but not my experience..............
  10. Gold Sovereign Expert

    Usually bit pricey,not a lot of stock,occasionally have odd bargain.......last week they had 6 new 2012s' mint wrappers still on at £245 each,next day delivery free......found them for odd purchase 1st class......................... Knowledge base is excellent too imo............
  11. What happens if the Queen dies?

    I hope they stick to a profile engraving of Charles,a portrait would double the size of all coins to accommodate those lugs of his....................
  12. My Atkinsons Bullion Experience

    Couple of points,probably made above, so sorry to repeat if doing so. Atkinsons customer relations are second to none in my experience,if they described the item as new and it was not that would be imo a genuine mistake on their part,unlike the common practices of some dealers I could mention, but will not because of libel/slander laws,always get those two mixed up, and am 100% confident that they will sort the matter out to your satisfaction. Cant say I share the ops confidence in this buffalo being of numismatic value......have a few of em myself two slabbed at 69 and 70 and I only bought the slabbed ones because I was taking advantage of a seller who didnt have a clue about pricing, shocking behaviour on my part I know I gfeel guilty as hell about it, its all opinion but I dont see these coins as numismatic items but others are perfectly entitled to disagree. Finally I would never consider Atkinsons as a place to seek out true numismatic coins,they very rarely handle any. Talking Sovereigns only here.Having said that you could argue that they are the first place you should look as its my view that they wouldnt notice a truly numismatic sovereiegn if you slapped em in the face with it and therefore you might be very lucky and get a real bargain from time to time. I see them as a first class bullion dealer,grading is certainly not their forte and if willing to spend decent amounts of cash on numismatic coins unseen I feel you have to accept the risk of your idea of an extremely fine unc coin may well differ greatly from someone elses............said finally above so apologies, but Atkinsons have always been happy to send me photos of any coins I have asked for before I make a purchase or not and I think one should always ask for such, which again you will not get from a good many other dealers out there.
  13. Today I bought.....

    Personally I think its Crellin.............yes?
  14. is gold falling .

    Weekly even daily fluctuations of $20 to $50 at a time utterly meaningless imo.............look at price min of year on year............that'll tell you something that may,and still only then, may, be meaningful................I'm buying whenever I can and will continue to.............but I do take a very long term view,which I know is not the same for everyone.........
  15. Lets talk Whiskey

    Terrible news, the World will not be the same without it..............
