    HyHy reacted to Numistacker in My pre-1937 Proof Sovereign collection so far   
    Quite a few people ask me how I’m doing on building my proof Sovereign collection covering Sovereigns from 1937 before so I thought I would show you. Still quite a few gaps but it’s not doing too badly.
     

    1887 (mintage about 750)
     

    1902
     

    1911 with another half at NCS
     

    1923 (mintage about 650)
     

    1937
     
    I think 1893 should be doable in next six months with luck and that leaves a number of difficult or very expensive years like 1839, 1871, 1958 and these could take many years if ever...

    HyHy got a reaction from augur in Exact weight of 2018 1oz Britannia   
    Well according to the specification provided by Perth Mint when a product is stated to contain 30 grams of precious metal, by law it shall contain no less than 30.01 grams of the precious metal. It could contain more than that amount (then the mint will be losing money) but would NEVER be less than 30.01 grams.

    A stunning quality dragon. With all the shortcomings at the Royal Mint, this one is definitely worth its PF70. The picture actually doesn't do it justice. Thanks @Skelator88

    Erm it's around $1000 excluding taxes and shipping so get it from @Skelator88 he priced his item really reasonably and I have dealt with him before with no problems if that's your concern 
     
    I do think so as well! I mean I wouldn't mind at all and not too bothered whether it will add on any value as long as it is authentic!

    I would be pleased, as errors go it's pretty cool, doesn't distract from the overall aesthetic
    Not sure if it will end up adding any value but still cool

    HyHy reacted to augur in Missing JC on the obverse   
    It will be a rare error coin. Normally the engravers that prepare the dye have a little film to protect the fields from the sandblasting that creates the frosted effect. In this case the letters weren't properly cut out and that is why J C wasn't frosted. NGC and PGCS look mainly at the fields, so this was overlooked by at least two graders. 
    This coin slipped QC at the Royal Mint and at NGC. I believe there was an instance with US coins, where on a handful the frosting wasn't applied and they became for some reason quite desirable.

    Actually it should have said "J.C"
    I found another dragon that must be from the same dye - maybe @Numistacker can ask for a variety designation as the other one belongs to @Skelator88, which makes already two coins. I believe they only strik about 30 coins before reworking the dyes, so there maybe only very few coins with this error.

    Thanks for helping me out looking for it! That just calm me down but man it might seem obvious in the picture but in real life the JC looks more like a scratch to be honest [emoji23][emoji23]
