    Today I Received.....

    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.

    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.

    A tremendous “Thank you!” to @ZGrizzlyWord for this beautiful 2016-W 1/2 oz Gold Walking Liberty Half Dollar Centennial. I have been looking at this since since I read one of the recent articles in “Coin World” concerning the US Mint wasn’t authorized to Mint this coin as a commemorative. Also, from @Lr103, I received a 2010 Gold Sovereign Proof at a great price! @Lr103 has some really great coins and is awesome to work with! Lastly, had a silver pick up with some 100x 1 gram Silver Bar - Valcambi Silver CombiBar™ (w/Assay)...never know when you may need to pay someone with a pinch o’ silver!

    A few recent acquisitions. A big thanks to @fehk2001 for the 2018 sov and the lion. I got the valiant 1oz from another dealer... just got one to check it out. And I have to say... this valiant coin is an absolute beauty in hand... pictures don't really do it justice! And the obverse too, looks very shiny and unique compared to other coins. This is going to be a hit for the Royal Mint, I'm going to try to get a handful from the European Mint before silver becomes more expensive. Have to get the money first lol...

    I was very late to the @BackyardBullion party and am playing catch up. Today I received the 2017 1oz bar which was bought via EBay. Lovely to see how the bars have evolved. Just looking for a 2018 now! I also bought, courtesy of the wonderful @Peacemaker, a great 1oz Tri-State bar. I wonder if anyone has separated these?

Also, an excellent bit of Pre-33 gold, a 1907 $10 Liberty Gold Eagle BU. And adding to The South African Mint’s Big Five Series...a couple 2019 South Africa 1 oz Silver Big Five Lion BU.

    I'm really impressed with the Magnificent Maple Leaves 10 ounce silver coin. If you don't have one, make it your next item. The detail of the leaves is very impressive. I know it's sacrilege but I wish they used this version on the 1 ounce. I feel like I crossed a rite of passage and now have my first PAMP gold bar:)

    … the initial results and stark consequences of my front-loading, year-to-date, pre-Brexit bullion purchasing strategy, in anticipation of a possible end to the availability of cheap and/or VAT-free silver in the UK. Most of this was acquired before the original March 29th exit date from the EU. So, pretty good timing … with the benefit of hindsight. Anyway … as of now, 76 more days (at least) to add to the pile! Consequences? … Urgent trip to B&Q required, to buy more robust cutting tools for the ‘great unboxing’ that lies ahead! NeutronJack

    The other day I received, for a second time, my 1776 Maria Theresia Taler, after it was graded, thanks to @Numistacker. Some might describe the grading result as a disaster but I still like it, it's still AU and it was conserved so it is almost as shiny as a new bullion coin, now. My first graded coin - I would have imagined the NGC slabs bigger, from the photos and videos. They are actually quite handy. Given the "detail" result, I will probably still get it out of the slab and put it into a capsule with a foam ring. It still makes a very nice, historical, ungraded coin. Before and after conservation:

    Hi all, I recently launched a little side project of mine for monitoring the prices of gold sovereigns by UK dealers: https://goldcompare.net 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!

    Prince Albert celebration sovereign!

    In addition to the ones mentioned, there was a 2013 SOTD for the birth of Prince George (22nd July 2013) with a mintage of 2013. The 2015 SOTD for the 2nd birthday of Prince George is quite distinctive. I think it is the only BU sovereign that year to use the Jody Clark Queen's Head design - the Princess Charlotte SOTD and the regular bullion sovereigns for 2015 use the Ian Rank-Broadley design. Therefore there are only 400 non-proof 2015 Jody Clark head sovereigns. Regarding the 2017 Sapphire Accession and Platinum Wedding SOTD sovereigns, I thought the Sapphire Accession sovereigns had a normal reeded [milled] edge whereas the Platinum Wedding sovereign had a flatter, wider reeded edge (Coin News, July 2018, p.35), so it may be possible to differentiate between them.

    Interesting poll out, 44% of the public support Boris bypassing the traitors in parliament entirely. 37% oppose, 19% don't have a clue. Interesting breakdown by party; 76% of conservatives support parliament shut down. 32% of Labour support. 25% of Libdems agree that Mr Johnson should achieve Brexit "by any means" The ComRes study also found widespread disillusionment with MPs themselves, with 88% of those polled feeling Parliament is "out of touch" with the British public. Some 89% feel MPs "ignore the wishes of voters and push their own agendas" on Brexit. https://www.politicshome.com/news/uk/political-parties/conservative-party/boris-johnson/news/105897/public-would-back-boris
