    I personally hate everything about Black Friday, I find the whole experience brash and tasteless. A tacky import. 
    Nice touch but I agree with Kimchi, its sad to see less 'mainstream' shops getting involved.

    Thank you for commenting. We've tried not to go crazy but instead offer two really good deals that will be popular with both gold and silver investors. Our Best Value products are split into to two main types, secondary market and newly minted. The newly minted are modern issues that can be from 2000 to present - the majority of which are in the original blister packaging  from The Royal Mint. The secondary market sovereigns /half sovereigns can range from Victorian Young Head to Elizabeth II (even 2017), these coins will show signs of wear and may have edge knocks or light scuffs or scratches. I hope it's not confusing but we recently introduced Grade B - not an actual grade - but these are sovereigns that we do not consider good enough to sell as bullion but are too good to scrap. We scrap quite a lot of sovereigns, particularly if they have been in jewellery.

    eBay gives you the real-time current demand for this coin 
    https://www.ebay.co.uk/sch/i.html?_from=R40&_trksid=p3692.m570.l1313.TR0.TRC0.H0.X+Isaac+Newton+Gold+Proof.TRS0&_nkw=+Isaac+Newton+Gold+Proof&_sacat=0
    link above shows live listing on eBay UK of x7 results price range £865 to £999
    ...............................................................................................................................................................................
    https://www.ebay.co.uk/sch/i.html?_from=R40&_sacat=0&_nkw=Isaac Newton Gold Proof&LH_Complete=1&rt=nc&_trksid=p2045573.m1684
    now, on the link above simply by clicking the 'completed items' show the previous sales in the past month from £865 to £1,400
    ...............................................................................................................................................................................
    Not one has sold in the secondary market so far.  Had one 'sold', it would be highlighted green
    Will this change in future ? maybe ? nothing is guaranteed
    It will always be worth spot.
    Currently it is worth roughly between spot and the Royal Mint price of £775
    Until you can find someone who want it and securing a deal is what it is actually worth
    ...............................................................................................................................................................................
    eBay is you 'real' guide as to what something is currently worth as this shows what the market is prepared to pay.
    But you must ALWAYS remember to take it from the green completed items, these are actual sales.
    Simply because something is 'listed' one eBay for £999 doesn't mean it is worth £999
    It is only worth £999 when someone puts skin in the game and ponies up the cash for it.
    With so many diverse opinions on here from core bullion stackers, numismatic collectors, flippers, future investment speculators,  there is simply no one right or wrong answer.
    It is opinions.

    It's good to be thorough, they now seem to have CoAs into the 180s so are doing slightly better
    I still say this will never, ever be worth more than spot in the medium to long term.
    As for why people list them on ebay at decent profits when you can still buy them elsewhere cheaper - imo chancers looking to snag a fool (and they do find them, alas). What other possible reason is there?
    Far wiser and more experienced folk than I have already told you the black and white situation with this coin. If you care about your money then listen to them. If you don't and are rich and have money you can just burn then get this coin. Last word from me, but good luck!

    For a limited period we've reduced Newly Minted Half Sovereigns to 3.5% - the same premium as our Secondary Market Full Sovereigns! The more you buy, the lower the premium.  https://www.chards.co.uk/best-value-half-gold-sovereign-bullion-coins-newly-minted/1991
    If you're looking for a silver bargain - we've introduced Secondary Market 1oz Silver Coins - these are our cheapest one ounce silver coin. Check out our prices here: https://www.chards.co.uk/best-value-silver-one-ounce-coin-secondary-market/2870

    The bottom line here!
    @buckeyecoins you will see many coins which have potential and have people excited simply by hanging around here Don't always buy into the hype (e.g. see the Silver Proof Krugerrand, though people did make on that in the very short term) but there are some very likely winners (some of the special anniversary release Sovereigns for this year, e.g. the Piedfort and Strike on the Day - take a look at e.g. ebay prices compared to release prices, also you can search for those threads from the time on here, they may be a very interesting read!).

    Now you have to make a spreadsheet, check gold price.org,  check mintages, work out average per gram.......etc etc.! 
    Look for Paul's spreadsheet if you don't have one.

    That sounds morally grey and also a hell of a lot of hard work!
    I may be forced to register for VAT at some point simply because of Brexit. If we can no-longer source VAT free (or at least greatly reduced) silver from Europe then registering for VAT will allow me to claim it back on all of my material stock. Of course I would have to charge VAT for sales which will increase prices or hit my margins, but only on goods sold in the UK. International customers would not be affected. 
    Only time will tell!
