    I think that is exactly it.
    People who missed the sovereign at issue price of £400+ will baulk at paying up to £900 on the secondary market but £800 for a double weight coin of the exact same appearance will seem a bargain.

    I also took Economics at uni... I now work as a professional economist, and can honestly say that I've only ever used 20% of the stuff that I learned at uni.  Econometrics was by far the most useful topic.
    And I completely agree with @vand - the blind faith put in those who have studied this 'dismal science' is astonishing, and scary.

    And in the box it will look the same!  If you hide the certificate only you will know that it is a heavyweight!

  9. tallthinkev liked a post in a topic by sovereignsteve in Unicorn of Scotland, send it back?   
    If you want one and you're happy to keep sending them back until you get a good one.................
     
    otherwise, refund and look for one elsewhere or abandon the idea completely.

    Piedfort doesn't necessarily need to be a proof but the RM tend to strike them as such.
    Always thought they're a waste of time myself; if you're going to double the amount of metal then why not increase the diameter as well?
    Oh, they already have the double sovereign!

    chances are that it will be the same design as the bullion sov, so nothing to get excited about. They can dress it up as they like but it's just a bullion coin weighing a bit over an ounce. nobody collects these do they?

    I am with you Roy - I am disappointed that after all of my hours of research and dipping my toes in earlier this year, my conclusion was and still is that these things are completely worthless. The market currently disagrees to say the least. 
    If I had come to the same conclusion as the rest of the market, I could have bought a few Etherium at $15 a coin, but the more I looked, the more I saw tulips. Now its up 4000% on they year. The lesson - even tulips are a good buy if you get in early enough

    Picked this up the other day at the Birmingham coin fair from the PCGS stand.
    Only base metal I think, but it was very cheap; FOC in fact

    "good condition" is a vague and subjective term, can you be more specific about condition and budget?

    It looks like it's been cleaned rather than edge damage, to my eyes.
