GOLD DEALS - See a deal, post here :)

Well don't buy them then.  

I think HGM have been pushing there luck for a while now, i can buy better quality bullion from Chards at a similar price and the coins are always in good condition for £3 more postage.  As for older Sovereigns they are bullion unless they are in good condition full stop.  I will not fall for this feeding frenzy.

HGM are separating out the different monarchs and charging a little bit more for them. Currently have Victoria VH, Edward and George all at higher premium. I wonder if that means they will be in better condition? Or does best value sovereign equate to Elizabeth I sovereign now.

They say they will be a high grade so I am willing to pay a couple of quid more. Plus I like being given the choice of what monarch/head I want, everyone has there preference so it eliminates that fingers crossed and see what turns up element

i was annoyed about this at first, but now after thinking about it, i ring before i buy because i prefer non queen Elizabeth sovs so willing to pay a few pounds extra especially if they are in better condition.

Hmm will there be any quality assured difference?

There didn't really seem much quality control when they sold shield sovereigns

My guess is they've just put the price up :ph34r:

Agreed I would be happy to pay for quality and choice of monarch, so long as this is the case of quality every time. My experience with buying shield half sovs has been hit and miss with HGM in the past with some being returned, but at least they are willing to accept returns.

Proof is in the pudding so to speak. I'm sure there will be a few on the forum that will buy and report on what quality they receive

Good luck to them, a business decision. It may work out for them, it may not. Business can't have been easy lately; spot all over the place and I notice some coins have been sticking around a while.

Saves me phoning up and asking for the heads I want.

I haven't bought that much from them lately as I find shield sovs and especially halves go in under 1 or 2 minute.  There is no way I'm paying the extra for a jubilee half so I usually miss out.  I can often buy a known grade and year from a dealer for around the same price in many cases now once I have haggled the price slightly.  This is much better than paying for an unknown grade from HGM.  I've had a few that look exmount judging by the dirt in places where the mount clasp would have been or are dinted.

I don't think many of the staff are experienced enough to give you a good estimate as to the grade etc,.

Anyone know if HGM have changed policy again? Haven't seen any separated off with different monarchs like last week.

I bought these 2 for 257, i knew they were G&D and knew they were 8quid more than i could get them for elsewhere at the time but i like lucky dip what can i say :D.

They were both Melbourne mint, i believe both scarce by marsh and in very good grade. I doubt they will all be good grade, i received a half a few days ago that is a complete dog, its a lower year so may keep it not sure yet!

Anyone bought from London gold bullion before?. They're selling a 1/4 Gold Queens Beast Griffin for £267.85.

https://www.londongoldbullion.co.uk/gold-coins-c4/united-kingdom-c9/queens-beast-griffin-1-4-oz-gold-coin-p373

Owned by James Stunt, husband of Petra Ecclestone.  I'd be comfortable buying from that website... and might at that price.

He must have fixed his price because I am seeing £45 delivered for a single 2 oz dragon - seems way too cheap now :lol:
