    A 2009 silver kilo Kookaburra and three sov mixed dates, all from Leihhaus Nürnberg. By the way, should sovs look so bronzey, or is it because they are old?

    I am astonished and envious of some people's sovereign-purchasing power

    2018 Sovereigns?

    Except that the description says these are proofs. I sincerely hope they don't do another special proof next year - that will be ridiculous. I think putting privy marks on bullion Sovereigns is such a cheap, modern strategy for imparting some collectible value to these bullion strikes. The 200th anniversary privy mark was alright (I guess). Imo a privy mark for the "anniversary of the coronation" is a bit too far; we just had the sapphire jubilee strike on the day in 2017 to celebrate the "anniversary of becoming queen". Well if it's a damn proof I suppose I should start saving. I'm obviously going to succumb to the hype and give in to my FOMO

    What do you stack and why ?

    I have got some left 😉 As to what and why...it is going to be different for everyone. I invest in gold for the long term (pension in 30 years time) as a way to preserve wealth. Bricks and gold are the best ways to do this so a small proportion goes to gold for me. As to silver...I also have pension stacks in silver but not as much as gold in terms of £ value. The majority of the silver I have will eventually be liquidated into gold (when the ratio comes down). Ultimate goal is to have 80% + of my precious metal pension as bullion gold and silver that can be liquidated quickly for spot and the other 20% as numismatics that might require a few extra months to find the right buyers.the majority of the latter I see being silver rather than gold. If you love poured silver I have some of the 100g Silver Forum Bars available still!

    Purchasing via Ebay (help)

    @arshimo2012 has from time to time some good golds deals and offers. The items for sale are fairly eclectic, and he is honest in his grading/opinion. Thus you can pick up some fairly unusual coins at prices fairly close to spot.

    35 Edward sovs to get the run started, this part will be easy. 95% of coins are in extremely good grade which makes things a lot easier also!

    Now that I've got a few mins. Yesterday's slabs. 2017 Pristrucci 3 coin set, Strike on the Day and BU 5 Sov all came back 70. 2005 Australian Sov was originally treated as bullion so 69 or less was expected. The centennial Bi-Met Sov got a low grade due to the milk spotting on the silver. Pleased with the 70 on the £1 and the £2 was as expected. The coins from that set were not mint. All the 1/10 China Lunars came back 70 so happy with those.

    Just a "barbarous relic"

    But would all three different NGC graders give each mirror segment an MS70 cameo?

    Received some coins back from NGC after 2 months. NGC messed up and then USPS messed up but luckily the USPS issue ended up in my favour in this instance. NGC graded some coins and then sent them back. As soon as I was able to, I checked the grades and images only to find they'd not applied the GB label as paid for. No biggie! I would have just got credited back for it and just left them on the brown label. Someone made a mistake which is understandable since no one is perfect. NGC will change labels at their expense but I wouldn't have bothered with the hassle. Looking at the other coins I noticed mistake 2 and 3. They'd put the wrong labels on 2 coins! This time there is no excuse Overlooking one coin is a possibility. Miss a second and someone isn't actually doing their job. Now I have no choice but to send the coins back. The problem is the coins are finalised and shipped the same day so it's too late to contact them if errors are noticed. I track the coins through a phone app with push notifications and it reaches Jamaica NY depot but instead of being forwarded and departing Newark for the UK it travels back to Tampa FL a couple of days later. I'm thinking it's been mis-sorted and will turn back around but nope, it ends up going back to Sarasota FL. What was nerve racking was the impending storm that was about to hit Florida. NGC had already closed it's office a could of days before so now my package would be sitting at the Post Office over the weekend and for a few days afterwards. I sent them an email explaining that some coins needed label corrections and the package had been returned to them without leaving the US. Just hoped that Irma wouldn't cause any damage to Post Office etc. Ending up being fine and NGC picked up the parcel and the coins went back into their system for label corrections. Since I was going to have to return the coins anyway, the parcel being returned back to NGC worked in my favour. I expected the label corrections to be expedited but it wasn't the case and still took a couple of weeks before they were shipped back to me. Again I follow the package (I track all packages) and this time it goes smoothly and lands with me this morning 10 days after shipping from NGC. The original labels:

    I have a bit of a confession and cautionary tale, I asked earlier what a 2005 proof full sovereign would be worth/ value , there was good advice and I had done my own research, thus when I left a speculative bid on a 2005 coin on e bay I did not expect to win it in fact , so much so I did not have the funds to buy it at my max bid if I won ! yep I won it , so I have had to arrange mr credit card ( 0% interest on purchases) to pay it . caution , don't get obsessed and leave speculative bids if you don't have the funds I am sure this is just me and a one off anyway ( I hope ) dean.m

    At the arcade. I've tried with other machines at different places in the past but from a £1 they always gave 10ps. This one gave 19 X £1 and 2 x 50p from a £20 note so thought I'd try a £1 and see what it would give. To my surprise it gave 2 x 50p so I just chucked £1s into it. Would have done more but my pocket got too heavy.
