    gazer reacted to Danny-boy in Today I bought.....   
    Today I bought a 2002 Britannia to complete my 2nd (and last) full date runs of Britannias.

    Also bought a lunar series 1 rat / mouse. That's my third, and have a deal going for 2 more. That puts me nearly half way there!!!

    Just sold a few bits and bobs on eBay so have £350 to drop on silver next week.

    Probably will complete my date runs of fiji taku, Noah's arks, and philharmonic. There are a few others I fancy too.

    So i suspect this is a copy of the original. Someone made a mold using the original. Perhaps it is silver - assuming i am right it is worth its weight in silver. What does it weigh? Something between 1.5 - 2 troy ounces if silver.

    Buy large, sell small. You’ll get far better prices either way.

    I sold a few kilo's of silver a couple years ago using Ebay and got above spot for everything. A bit of work, some risk, offset by paypal and royal mail guaranteed delivery. HGM offered 80% of spot for kilo bars so that gives you an idea of dealer side of things. It would have been quicker and easier to sell to them but if you are not in a massive rush (who is in a rush when they are retired? ) you should be able to get at least spot. 
    Gold was better, sold nearly all to HGM, cash in the bank next day, think it was 98% of spot.

    gazer reacted to Zhorro in Underweight gold sovereigns   
    I do not mind buying worn coins (which I think gives them character) as long as they are not offensive to the eye (e.g. harsh scratches or large dinks!).  Whilst it is relatively easy to buy George III, George IV and William IV sovereigns in good condition (as long as you have £900-£2,000 to spend), but it is not that easy to find nice looking worn examples at consequently lower prices. 
    The reason I was interested in this topic of underweight sovereigns was because at the time I started the thread I was in the process of buying this worn 1824 sovereign which the vendor said weighed just over 7.5 grams.  For a sovereign this seems light but to me it looks genuine, however, other opinions would be welcome.

    There’s nothing better than knowing some gold will be arriving in the post.
    Took delivery of a really cute 2019 Gold Panda. It’s a lovely portrait of mother holding its cub and I think this one will go on to become a classic. 
    BBP also provided a capsule as if to tempt me even further to remove it from the sacred must not open at all costs sealed plastic envelope.  I am sorely tempted though. Even if I lost money and remember I buy not for investment but purely from the love of gold, I think it looks so much nicer laying alongside the other coins which are also in capsules.

    A few Perth Mint pickups from this week.
    First is the new 2oz silver bullion version of the 100th anniversary of the end of World War One. Very attractive coin.
    Next is the 2oz silver antiqued Dragon & Phoenix coin. I bought one of these when they were first issued and put my name on the waiting list for the 2nd which came in this week. 
    And lastly a Christmas present from the mint, a tin of Perth Mint mints!
