Last weekend ebay sent a voucher code for 20% off upto a max discount of £75, most on here got 1 and picked up something. I got the 2018 sovereign but didnt save much because it was higher priced anyway. Worked out at £225 ish i think.

No use now though it ended at 6pm on  the issue day.

This thing is byb said the seller didn't bear the cost so seem.s the sellers were being greedy to me is that right

@Goldmick Funny thing is that this morning I looked at these on Ukgoldbullion.com website and ended up emailing MMTC Pamp in India to ask about the mintage for each year of these.

I could only find one quote of the 2013 being at 80,000 and the 2014 full sovereign at 150,000 but this was not from their website. There was a five year licence granted by the Royal Mint for Pamp to make these.

I didnt see his price to begin with.

To be fair In the add he did a breakdown of the costs, he showed paypal/ebay/post and after them he actually gets £235 ( i didnt look if that was accurate).

He did offer to pay by card and he would knock off the paypal.

Ebay took the hit on price, so if sellers bumped up prices during that deal then yes, it was them being a bit greedy imo (if they were prepared to sell cheaper with the fees before the discount, then to take advantage of the offer (as sellers not buyers during it was 'opportunistic') - though I don't blame them as long as the buyers were happy too).

UKbullion (horrible company in my experience who I will never deal with again, or their 'sister' company which is more expensive but has the same staff!) said long ago they couldn't get the mintages for the 2017s. I don't trust those mintages for previous years. I haven't seen a numbered card in the UK above 2000 for 2017, even when it took UKBullion a long time to supposedly get stock back in (and try to unfairly maximise the price because of the interest here imvho - check the thread at the time).

Now UKBullion are selling numbered coins less than ten away from the first ones I bought from them, after 'trying so hard' to get more stock, only to increase the price ridiculously because they knew they were 'hot' on here (and ebay for a little while). I don't buy any of it.

It's a lovely minted coin and a really nice pick up, and I'm glad I have four at a reasonable average price for gold content and 'the shinies', but I'd be very surprised to turn much of a profit on these. 2017 was awash with special Sovs - this wasn't one of them imvho.
