It's a nice set to collect, my first half sov was the 1887, I then had to get the 1887 full sov, and then I thought to myself I have to get the rest now lol. They are nothing special or high grade just circulated ones really but I'm happy with them. Please do! I will be looking forward to it :)

There’s 7 different 1887 full sovereigns. That could be a challenge getting all those. Dangerous path though, where does it end!

I found pictures of the larger coins before grading. The Anacs will be put in a NGC holder. The 1/2 Sov is still with Numi but he sent a pic. I show before and after. I am thrilled with MS 61

Very dangerous indeed! I can't get side tracked again, I need 5 more sovs to complete the Edward 1902-1910 date run 😂 Then I don't know from there, It would be nice to get the 1887 ones but it will work out quite expensive, I still need a Sydney and South Africa minted ones so they will be on the to buy list....the list just keeps on getting bigger and bigger lol

Yesterday was a fantastic day! Valentine's Day arrived and I was finally going to see my wife's reaction to @BackyardBullion's beautifully made silver heart. Suffice to say she was very happy. But I was in for a surprise too..

I wonder how much BYB was smiling to himself knowing that we had both ordered gifts from him, for each other?! I absolutely adore my Ripple Dragon, it is so tactile and wonderful to play with. Thank you BYB, you made yesterday a very special day. :wub:

 

I have to say - Mrs BYB and I were very happy about this little cosmic happenstance!

We were pretty worried about either of you recognising the BYB parcel when they came through the door! Glad it was a good surprise for you both and that you guys had a good valentine's day!

Well then, my wife has just told me that I actually received this from the postman and said, "Oh, is this my valentines present?!!" "No it is a cat food sample I ordered," she told me, happy that she could take it from me quickly before I turned it over and saw the BYB sticker on the back. I didn't think any more of it except that the cats were lucky to be getting treats through the post as my wife is often finding free offers for them.

£18, ouch! I don't mind the import duty so much, it's the £8 admin fee from RM that makes me wince. 

A very nice competition win though, it looks lovely.

Are there any other Melbourne shield Sovereign fans out there?

Oh yes. It's a nice little series to collect but, as you say, has a few challenges.

I have a 83 (and a couple of others) which is on paper the rarest at mintage 427k but the 86 and 87 seem more difficult to find. I keep meaning to try and complete the set but other things keep getting in the way.:D

The Sydney series is another nice one to collect; more years but all seem to be easier to find than the Melbourne.
