  1. Anyone staying up late tonight the Gold Una & Lion on ebay UK auction ends tonight 23.38 GMT currently at £19,000, via 26 bids with x128 watches on it https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Una-and-the-Lion-2019-UK-2oz-Gold-Proof-Coin-Limited-Edition-225-Very-Rare/303441903449?hash=item46a68bff59:g:1tAAAOSw64ZeGlia Time to buy more popcorn
  2. Will be an interesting watch this one, the first perfect graded one selling through a proper coin auction. Guess this will of make a benchmark/official line in sand what the current value is by what collectors are prepared to pay
  3. Borat/Sasha wanted it to be all holds barred for the hedonistic life Freddie choose to part take in - he wanted to control too much of the poetic license of a character Brian & Roger & Jim Beach Queens Manager will and always protect the brand that is "Queen" and hence why Bohmeian Rhapsody film COULD have been, EDGEier and controverisal - but they chose to shine things in the best light Sasha & Queen Productions fells out of sort hence why it took years longer that it should for the movie, than orignally planned Then the "me-To" stuff with (original) director of Bohemian Rhapsody Bryan Singer delayed matters They got Rami Malek - Mr Robot. and to be totally fair he made a 101% kick ass perfect wonderful job for the movie for Queens front man. PERFECT pick Sadly John Deacon (bassist), retired from public life not long after Freddies parting. Hes not toured, been part of further albums, gigs, appearences, musicals, etc. or made any reference to in Royal Mint pages for this coin, but im sure he is still quite happy getting his monthly royality cheques from Queen Proudctions they are all equal shares in https://companycheck.co.uk/company/01226628/QUEEN-PRODUCTIONS-LIMITED/financials they aint short of a bob or ten ££ million
  4. As a life long fan of Queen since 1985 when i first saw them when i was a weeny bairn paddling in a pool on the July summers day i got hooked & transfixed to the TV watching the QUEEN live Aid set and later Wembley 1986 gig on TV Made many thousands of pounds trading their wears/rare vinyl, foreign issues, pictures discs, memorabilia over past 25-30 years and add stacking PM since the mid 2000s I STILL didnt buy anything they had on offer today you only have one chance to make one good impreression and WOW what a dispaointment Royal Mint RANT OVER
  5. " Sell Sell Sell !!! " they shout, but they just dont understand , do they ! ?
  6. are you in love with it yet ? are you wowed ? what did you say to yourself when you opened it ? did you feel like a kid on Christmas day again ! ?
  7. Royal Mint must have finished the backlog of gold Una & Lion, who have magiced onto eBay with actual picture & COA numbers in past 24 hours https://www.ebay.co.uk/sch/i.html?_from=R40&_nkw=una+lion+gold&_sacat=0&_sop=3 £30,000 the asking price - now gulp ! Sellers are GreedisGood and that Osbourne chappy ID
  8. Royal Mint make blanks for mints all around the world. It is sized as a sixpence and has the reeded edge. It is the same size as a sixpence not sure if the weight it. It isnt made from silver it looked like just a ususal cupronicket you would use on a 5p to be honest the few i have had through my hands over the years As Royal Mint is a business, if the price is right and they can make money from it, its a goers for them As it is not a coin of value, there is no monarchs head or monetory value assigned it it The 1993 issue was for the Back to the Light was the tour which was a solo album project of Brian Mays, Queen as a band were not playing in this tour, he was playing with Cozy Powell from Rainbow, Neil Murray, Spike Edney, Jamie Moses. He had backing from ones of Bucks Fizz singer Shelley Preston It was indeed Brian May who appeared on Buckingham Palace roof for 2002 jubliee concert
  9. you can join them at the same address if you like for a mere £15 a month https://www.virtuallondonoffices.co.uk/
  10. Just two mins googling found them on back of @Clens92 as he says dormant company, not at an actuall address, working out of a Suite in Regent Street London a little director searching and think this may be their trading business "investments" The address to impress but it will be a virtual address/office https://companycheck.co.uk/company/05256159/IMPERIAL-COINS-INVESTMENTS-LIMITED/financials Not good finanicals, no cash in the bank
  11. dont do anything in haste, if your stepfather has been savvy enough to invest in gold you may very well have some gems dont feel rushed to do anything. whatever you dont dont be tempted to sell it for the nearest "cash for gold", cashconvertors /cashgenerator, pawnbrokers. Even if you choose to liquidate the collection in once swoop just getting the precious metals content of the coins, we can point you in the direction on who can be trusted & give you the best price
  12. https://www.ebay.co.uk/sch/i.html?_sop=3&_osacat=0&_odkw=2017+gold+sovereign&LH_Complete=1&_from=R40&_trksid=p2334524.m570.l1311.R4.TR4.TRC0.A0.H1.X2017+gold+full+sovereign.TRS0&_nkw=2017+full+gold+sovereign&_sacat=0 here are all the sales of the 2017 full sovereign in the past few months Actual sales are in figures in GREEN Ignore listed priced, what is in green is what acutally people have ponyied up and paid/bid. eBay might get you a couple of quid more than here and most here are tighter than a Yorkshire Scotsman who doesnt like spending money ! especially if you have an eBay seller ID and lots of feedback as not to burst your bubble, but as you a kind of "newbie" here you may need to take a leap of faith and trust someone who might want to buy it by sending it to them first on trust, check they have good feedback score here on the forum and lots of deals done. good luck with the sale its a great piece. if you dont need the cash sit on it, this will be a good coin to hold for years to come, very little downside risk by sitting on it
  13. The original minted sixpence was in 1993 for the Brian May 'Back To The Light' tour, Features Brian's head on the coin with his name and tour title around the edge. This item was specially minted for Brian by The Royal Mint of England, as they were sold to fans as collectables at concerts, as the tour reaches thosuands, i guess there will be 1000s sold at gis across Uk and europe. i never heard the offical mintage of it incorrect, he has always used a sixpence since the days of pre queen band smile in late 1960s It is the sixpence, size and edge thats could give Brian May his signatures sounds & riffs
