It will never stop being a classic, that is for sure. The price may change (probably upwards) but its value never will and that is the most important thing. Many many congratulations.

highly unlikely they'll sell fake "gold".

I do hope you are right @sovereignsteve, I bought from HGM obviously because of their price but also because I had read on the forum that they were reliable.

When gold is back up I will be selling the coin back to them.

Isn't pitting a sign of a replica coin

can be for sure

That is what I was wondering, do my photos show anything of concern for the many experts we have on the forum?

My 2017 bullion sovereign arrived today from Sharps Pixley. They know how to package a coin well :)

Can anyone else access their website at the moment? I'm getting a domain registration message there.

Not an expert but in my opinion these could be normal marks from circulation (pitting looks more like unsharp lunar craters, these marks are sharp). You should weigh and measure the coin. Some Chinese forgers age and wear coins artificially and some of the pitting here does look to pointed to be from other coins. Also the rim has some "mount marks" although in the wrong positions. 

If you paid bullion prices and weight and measurements are correct, I wouldn't worry. 

Some can even be factory made: mine has a belly button
