    Not all "Received Today" but seen for the first time together today... now on the way back to the Bank. Apologies for the quality of the pictures (taken by hand with my Mobile) that don't do the coins justice. Any marks you think you might see are on the plastic cases as the coins are 100%. I've also got all the Boxes and Certificates for all of these coins. If anyone has either a 1979 Proof or 1996 Proof Full Sovereign that they no longer need that they feel would Grade as a perfect 70 (or if you have one already graded 70) please get in touch as that would help me complete my 1979 to 2019 date run all in Proof 70 Grade. All of my set are PCGS except for 2 which I will get Crossed Over to PCGS.

    Pep talk: don't sell your PM now

    A plea to you all: sit on your hands. We stand on the breakout of what will very likely be one of the greatest bull markets of our lifetime. Think about what has happened over the last 10 years: unprecedented level of stimulus into a monetary system that is no longer fit for purpose. This is much worse than the abuse of the system that drove the prior PM bull markets of 1971-1980 and 1999-2011. The fallout from this crazy experiment will drive the price of gold by similar factors over the next decade, just as it did during the previous bull markets. Bull markets always run longer and further than nearly all their early adopters think is possible. PMs will be valued many multiples higher in the years to come. Scoot on over to a "mainstream" investment site like MrMoneyMustache or MoneysavingExpert and gold doesn't even figure on the radar. They are ALL about passive index funds and chasing the stock market. They worship VTSAX. If you are lucky you might find someone holding 20% bonds. They won't even look at gold until it has at least doubled from current levels, and even then they will be some of the earlier adopters. There will come a time to sell your PMs and buy something that is better value, but that time is still years away. It will be when everyone thinks it is a good time to be overweight on gold, when Dow/Gold is somewhere between a half to a quarter of its current level.

    You know you have a problem when you move from 1gm bars to 1/25 fractional coins. You know you have a bigger problem when you move from them to 1/10s. Problems increase when you move from there to half sovs. It gets worse when you move to full sovs. Its getting out of hand when 1/4 ounces enter the picture. (Recent acquisitions displayed) And am looking for help now that the first half ounce is on the way. (4 ducat - can’t wait!) I may be too far gone.

    Hi all, I recently launched a little side project of mine for monitoring the prices of gold sovereigns by UK dealers: https://ukgoldcompare.herokuapp.com At the moment functionality and looks are very basic; it refresh automatically every 2 minutes and watches a few of the most reputable dealers that I know of. I wanted to share it in case someone else finds it useful. It's completely free and donations are accepted to keep it running. Any constructive feedback is welcome. Thanks!

    Hi all members of the forum, I am a representative of the organisation The Buckingham Collection Limited, firstly we would like to express our sincere apologies to those that had to wait 30days for delivery for their coins. I'd like to offer an explanation to why this happened and some things we have implemented for this to not happen again in future. As I'm sure everyone on here is aware Gold is at an all time high, this really did have an effect on orders, we where inundated with so many orders that stock ran out. Where we purchase the stock from, there was a huge delay in our delivery out of our control. We often use just the one supplier to ensure the best deals and delivery times. So rather than refusing orders we continued to accept orders without knowing there was going to be such a large delay in deliveries. When we did receive any enquiries we did inform the customer of a delay in delivery. (However we would like to acknowledge there could have been clearer communication) I have seen some comments on here concerning us being a new firm. We are a new firm nearly one year old, but this has no bearing on the the delay in delivery times or how we treat our customers. We collectively as a group of four directors have a wealth of knowledge concerning coins and offer coins at fair prices, of course we do have a mark up on some of the pieces we offer, this is standard practice as we lose out on the bullion coins, we are a business and do need to pay costs. It has been a difficult year with the sky rocket of gold but we are still here to tell the tale and will be for the considerable future. I would like to address a few of the concerns regarding our offices and accounts. With us being a new firm we are still not yet due to file our accounts, we are also not a marketing company working out of a mail house or "virtual office" we are in Richmond House with plenty of room for expansion which is what we intend on doing and expanding rapidly. I would also like to address "The Regal Mint" this is a company not owned by us, nor do we have any connection, that company is dissolved. We changed our name from "Regal Mint" to "The Buckingham Collection." As can be seen on companies house. We chose a name that sounded prestigious as we are a Gold specialist and only selling 22 Carat Gold or above, we do not sell any other precious metals. Also. "Yes" we only offer one bullion order per household per year. All sales should be delivered within 7-10 working days maximum from now on. However we have implemented a few measures to ensure that our customers receive their coins in adequate time frames, the first being an alert system. Any orders that we expect will have a delay in delivery will be flagged by our system, automatically a text message or email will follow, giving an estimated time frame of delivery giving us clear communication with the customer, upon receiving that message, if you are not happy with the time frame of delivery we will honour a full an immediate refund via your payment method. (please be advised this takes 3-5 days, thats the acquiring bank not us). The second implementation: We will refuse orders for coins if there is no stock available, unless customer is happy in waiting the time frame within our terms and conditions. Paying via Paypal is available on our site as a method of payment along with our standard card processing. As an apology from us here at The Buckingham Collection we would like to offer a FREE half sovereign to those that had to wait the long time frames for delivery. To claim your coin please send us an email at info@buckinghamcollection.co.uk with your surname and postcode only. We will check the system if your wait time was longer than the 7 - 10 working days we will have your free half sovereign sent out as a priority. There is a maximum of 10 that we can offer, the offer is only available to forum members only. We are going to continue to improve our products and services and hopefully build and regain the trust in not just the members here, but everyone. Thanks again for reading.

    Few interesting pickups a bullion 2012 sov, a Jersey millennium sov, Manx half sov, Sydney 1915 half sov in excellent condition. Nearly completed my second tray of old school Libs too. i cannot express how addictive and satisfying it is to fill up these Panda trays with dateruns and same type coins. They look awesome.

    As per @Silvergun‘s post above- I too received a Gillick Sovereign, from @ilovesilverireallydo a 1962, arrived In the post today. I enjoyed the 3 days worth of fun banter until we came to a deal! I think I have his 4 Ducat purchase to thank for clinching it and making this deal possible! And today went to the York Coin Fair and picked up the last three ‘57, 59 & 1963 I really ‘needed’ to make up the remainder of the Mary Gillick Portrait x10 Sovereign run. Met some nice people there and saw some beautiful and rare Sovereigns. Here’s the 4 from today: And here’s the date run together:

    First foray into Platinum. Thanks @kneehow2018. A grotty looking and fingerprinted 2015 Half Sovereign, Jody Clark Portrait from eBay. And a Gillick Portrait Set Bought sans Sovereigns so had to fill it myself. Best thing is the handy hideaway for the other eight year dates of the Gillick Bullion Sovereigns.

    Not a coin but coin related. A Harrison's improved sovereign balance. The coin needs to be the right weight to balance and the correct thickness fit through the slots.

    I have been itching to buy some shiny stuff recently but the spot price has been putting me off somewhat. Spotted this on Atkinsons’ website on Thursday for £365 delivered. I have quite liked this since release but not at £480 the Royal Mint are asking. It came complete with all packaging etc. Itch scratched... for now!

The 2002 sovereign from eBay brought me to this forum so thanks to @Pete 2005 Australian sovereign particularly happy as paid spot way back July when gold was cheap.... 2005 British sovereign from eBay I think I did well as not seen anyone selling one for less. A couple of Pandas cause who doesn't like them. And finally some Perth mint Dragon coins which caught my eye so now I'll be committed to that series 🙄.
