    Now I have a few spare minutes, a few quick numbers and calculations for anyone thinking about it since Libertads are not widely available.
    Atkinsons's prices:
    2017s Kangaroo £132, Brit £124.5, Maple £131, Krug £137, L2 Rooster, £129, Elephant £133, AGE £128, Philly £132.5, 
    Pre-owned Maple £124, 2016 Krug £135.
    €29/1.175 = £25 postage.  Based on 5 people sharing it would be £5 each.  Cost to forward a coin by Special is £7 (rounded up to inc packaging).  Therefore a single coin cost would be £115 + £5 + £7 = £127.
    Even 3 people it would be £8.50 delivery so £115 + £8.5 + £7 = £130.50

    I've had some good success selling Lego on eBay. As others have mentioned, a discontinued set can fetch crazy prices a few years later. Currently sitting on some Pirates of the Caribbean sets (Black Pearl etc) which can reach US$500. I guess the trick is to identify a popular movie/series, get the lego set and then wait a while. No series lasts forever, so eventually will be discontinued. Like any "investment" a little work and a little luck. They need to be in mint condition obviously.
    I've joked to my wife that it's been the best asset class in the last 10 years. 
    Got a few old discontinued Thomas the Tank Engine train sets that have done well too - it's crazy what some parent will pay for kids toys (says me, who spent a fortune on Thomas, Edward, Gordon, Henry, Topham Hatt etc)

    Let me guess... the sovereign came from Atkinsons?
    They have some bloody cheek with their 'proof' coins.  Cowboys, unfortunately.

    It was bad, but not too bad if that makes sense. I really fancied it and it looked in good condition. Christmas 2017 may be cancelled however...

    There are lots of dealer sakes wholesale sales foreign sales and collector non stacker sales and many of these will gradually appear on eBay at just over spot a little like older britannias do where sales are in the 1500 range.

    I still can't see this coin being a winner at the issue price. The risk in this one is significant due to exchange rates, price and mintage. It's not that it's awful it's just it's not as good a buy as for example an ms shield Sovereign at the same price.

    Exactly, it doesn't matter. Collectors will want both, re-sellers will pump them up, the price of the unusual one will inevitably rise.

    Anything that's collectible might benefit from grading 
    Can always look on Ebay and see what high graded coins sell for (on sold listings) compared to their non-graded counterparts

    The Mongolian Pig and Dog are the first to be graded by NGC... Pretty excited with these results.

    We all feel the same way..
    When you are young and still wet behind the ears you don't appreciate that things always go in cycles. Even when PMs first came onto my radar in 2003 I was still chasing returns elsewhere (none of which I managed to keep) and I didn't actually become invested in it until many years later. I think that it is only really experience and many years of seeing this played out time for yourself and again that you come to accept the wisdom, but by then you are no longer young and much of life has passed you by.

    I'm also after a Napoleon Premier Consul 20 francs!
    These are regularly available as raw coins in about VF at European auctions however I am after one in an MS grade, or at least AU58, for my Napoleon type set which will hopefully appear at some point and probably in the US. It is likely to take another 10 years to complete the type set even though it only has 30 coins in it. As I now only have one quite difficult coin to get I could fill the remaining slots in VF very quickly but I like a challenge
    Assuming I can afford it any chance to upgrade or fill gaps in my British and Colonial collections would be great - the main one is a 1836 sixpence in BU grade - if anyone sees one let me know!!!
    Mainly numismatic, rather than bullion, goals for 2017 but, as others have said more bullion sovereigns would be good but that will need a decent drop in the spot price

    The way i offset the postage was by buying two , i also payed a £9 transfer fee , maybe with the 2017 Libertads the forum could do a group buy .

    Today I received my 2006 silver proof Queens' 80th birthday coin that I won on ebay for just over £16.
    On top of that in the post was a package with an ASE & a 2017 silver Britannia that I never ordered.
    It was addressed to me but had the wrong house number on it. When I opened it there was a receipt with order status 'complete'. Now I then compared it to my recent order receipt from the same firm that had 'processed' in the order status. Duplicate order from Yorkshire bullion!
    Me being me, I've tried ringing them but no response. I'll give them another ring in the morning. I could easily say nothing but they haven't done me a bad turn & have been pretty good with my orders.

    aint being funny but normal service is being resumed , its not this year that is the freak occurrence but last year was . your not underachieving this year ,you massively overachieved last year
    lets be honest , when you came back up to the top tier did you ever in your wildest dreams imagine that you would qualify for the champions league let alone win the championship ? what you are watching this year (fighting to stay up) is what you expected to happen you every year is it not ?
     yes,  your **** this year and you most probably will be next year and the year after that , you will most probably never win the league again in your lifetime but you have seen them win the league . no-one can ever take that away from you .
    tottenham supporters would give their left testicle to be in your position .
