  1. I have Gold: I have 3 (min 5) $3,000 value max Modern I have 2 (min 5) $1,000 value max (>1955/1970 to present) Value 1 from forum member + 4 more needed. VALUE takes 28 days and needs to be sent separately FULL DETAILS of TIERS https://www.ngccoin.com/submit/services-fees/ PM Me if you would like to send stuff for grading November 24th.
  2. Next unboxing video is up
  3. When they bring out coins such as the 2016 Centennial gold they use SP. it seems that the Royal Mint BU is the same as these. special strike, special planchets. However the Britannia Plain fields is similar and they seem to prefer to give this MS and DPL so I am not convinced they have it right.
  4. The first real pics of the new garden panda medal have appeared and it looks promising. There are 6 varieties and all but the antique silver one have 99 mintage and the antique silver has 59 minted. The silver medals are 2oz of fine silver and all medals are in a scolloped pattern. The second of the garden panda designs is in the planning stage now. I have ordered 2 sets of 6 from Lucky and I will have these graded. The medal is made by XSJ who are connected to Shanghai Mint and I believe there is some crossover in ownership. The XSJ team did the lovely Trigos medal This graded well and was well received. I have confirmed that a large USA dealer based near NGC has bought 10 sets of 6 and will be marketing these. A first for an independent medal.
  5. First unboxing video for grading results is up.
  6. Can they really be blamed if the Mint don't even know what they are minting ))
  7. When I have been sending them in for grading I have been specifying SP rather than MS or PF however NGC have a mind of their own on these things and they will decide how they want to classify them. I believe that SP would be the right classification but they may not do. As for the error, I think that the original COA plus the letter tells a better story than the correct COA. I think it is unlikely to add any value either way.
  8. Grading bullion is not normally my bag [emoji161] baby [emoji64] .... but I had a good feeling about this one and picked up 10 of the 100's. If any look good I will Grade them.
  9. That should be a good buy. Are you grading them?
  10. The dealer in Sarasota! will have 10 sets of 6. Some sets of 5 are still available from Lucky but I don't think he has many left. Here is the brass and antique copper.
  11. New Panda Label option is now available. If you submit Pandas please now state clearly if you want #383 the Large Panda or #887 the Panda Ink Brush. I will be using the new #887 on my Garden Pandas which should arrive soon from China.
  12. They can take a kilo coin!
  13. Now the sorting and posting fun comes
  14. Good news.. large box has arrived containing most of the May grading apart from some at NCS Expect to see lots of unboxings and coins in the post over the next few days
  15. for sale

    Mine got a 69 there were a couple of 70's and they don't come up often. I don't think $500 is a crazy price but I'm not sure it would get all the way there in an open auction.
  16. Bought a 2017 1/4oz Gold BU Libertad which will have a mintage of 500 this year. Also pre ordered the Sovereign book from Token Publishing
  17. So the May grading laggards are out for delivery [emoji403] and@silverstackeruk cheered me up by sending me a 35th Anniversary Bimet panda to look at. This really is double stonking yo my eyes.
  18. Looks like it cleared customs and is now on its way again...
  19. Our friends at customs are cogitating.. I called earlier and there was no money to pay at this point and there should not be at any point but it seems they are doing a spot inspection.
  20. I think Britannias have a way to go and can be great value
  21. Is it missing frosting or the nature of the BU strike process. When I had the coins side by side the BU was more "watery" compared with the proof.
  22. They are around and the double Ducat is also around too. I bought my single here but they are out of stock now https://www.zonnemunten.nl/en/dukaat-gold/22102-dubbele-dukaat-goud-2017-incl-doosje-cert-voorverkoop.html
  23. Bought the Anniversary Ducat
  24. The 1/2sov and 2sov 1937 are the value items. There were exactly the same mintage numbers for each of them. The full Sovereign will always be the premium as everyone collects full Sovs. Look at 1989 half and full too. I bought a 2 Sov at Heritage NGC PF65 for £1,850 that's almost finished at NCS now and a PCGS PR64Cameo 1 Sov on eBay USA for $2,800. These coins have jumped recently I think due to China and Japan demand according to Sovereign Rarities and I feel there is a growing interest in Sovereigns anyway.
  25. That's really bad news but unfortunately not atypical!@oldun has this sorted by requesting special boxes and packaging.
