    Import charges

    Yes UPS are excellent when buying USA to UK. I recently purchased a coin from the US and the seller charged me $40 tracked and signed with UPS and it took 3 days door to door and they are very good dealing with the customs side of things. The same coin was for sale with another seller using GSP and they were asking for $200 in shipping and import duties

    Import charges

    Yes with GSP you will get nailed with import taxes which do not apply in many cases. I have raised this with Ebay several times and the reply is always the same - ask the seller to ship using conventional shipping, then you will only pay what is actually due, if anything. Pitney Bowes who sort this element of GSP just apply a blanket charge to everything that comes to the UK with GSP, so if buying gold coins that are stated VAT exempt on UK HMRC notice 701 /21A do not use GSP. Silver Numismatic collectable coins have a reduced VAT tariff, but again if using GSP you will get nailed with the full amount.
  3. I would start with the 2002 or 2005 which will probably cost you the least.. None of these sovereigns are rare, you see plenty for sale but of course it would be good to get them in nice condition. You may get lucky and pick up a bargain but unusually low prices can indicate condition issues.
  4. Quarter and Tenth ounce sold, half ounce still for sale.

  12. 3/4 ounce gold coins are very rare, i have one in my collection a 2014 Kennedy gold proof half dollar, not sure how many other 3/4 ounce gold have been produced ? 1/4 and 1/2 ounce obviously found in set's, for example Brits, Eagles and Libertads but i guess quite a few stay in these sets and are not sold separately.
