    Latest two halves from HGM, lucky dip style. My first Victoria too!
    Old Head, a bit smooth on high spots, still pleased with the condition though.

    Late arrival of the 20% voucher, because I negotiated changing the 2018 sov to get their next bullion Veil Head sovereign that comes available.
    In the same shopping cart, to make full use of the voucher, were various silver things. One was this weirdly toned 5 Shillings.
     
     It's all iridescent teal and purple and burgundy in the hand.
     
    And my first old Head. After deductions, it cost me £227 total.

     
    It's a bit sharper in the hand. My old iPhone doesn't like to gmail me massive pictures.

     
     
     And a bit of bling sterling for under spot too, because why not.
     
    Nice voucher haul.

    Finally picked up the two lovely gold one - ouncers that I bought in the dip a few weeks ago. A 2017 eagle and a 2017 anniversary Britannia. Nice to contrast the colour and the designs, with the US eagle of course being 0.917. Sorry about the poorer photo of the Brit - but I am reluctant to take it out of its capsule. Regarding the designs; while the Eagle is very good (and with a big ounce you can see more of the finer details of the eagles nest and the White House ), it does make me appreciate that the Royal Mint here in the UK is willing to take some risks and plays with new tweaks to the designs on the front and back. Lets face it, we do grumble about the RM and pile into them when they get it spectacularly wrong (eg the 2018 lunar dog) but at least they take the risk. On the US side - i guess it would take another revolution to change the design. Maybe President Trump will order a new design - with the genius himself on both sides!?
    Anyway - back to the final gold coin - a cool pickup from a visit to the LCS when in the States, a 1923 Melbourne sovereign for the same premium as any other bullion.  Not in pristine condition, but this was a pretty low mintage by 1920s standards so quite pleased with that.  That one goes into the semi-numismatic pile of sovereigns😊.
     
    Also snagged a few of the annual silver 1 ounce designs - but my favourite by far is the Netherlands Lion restrike.  I could only find the bullion version, but i see now what all the fuss is about....and i may need to track down a proof! Some nice 1990 Canadian maples in OMP - i do like the old maples, and these are in great shape. Maybe being in the wrapper prevents spotting ?

    Just got this very rare 1/10 oz pamp suisse silver fortuna bar. This bar was never listed on pamp’s website and it was the face of a watch. ( the watch was a piece of junk and it took me about 1 minute to remove the bar from the crappy quartz movement. - on the positive side the bar was in great shape on the face since it was protected by the glass cover)

    If it wasn't for the dies from Berlin, it would be the same as any South African Sovereign
