    Second pickup was a 2014 Gold Buffalo.
    The depth of strike on this coin has to be seen in the flesh!
    Turned into an expensive Sunday!

    Goldmick got a reaction from JunkBond in Gold/Silver ratio?   
    I used to buy some silver but sold for gold and swapped some on here for gold. I just didn't get that same feeling about silver when I looked at my gold sovereign.s. I know that silver is a good buy at the moment so will buy a bit

    1852 Half Sovereign. Lovely obverse, bit of a scratch on the reverse but pricey nicey. 
    Ebay seller turned out to be a local coin collector and delivered it to me last night. Lovely chap, we chatted for ages, much to the wife's annoyance!

    Come on surely we can do better than the miserable offerings so far for the worst gold coin ever?

    He was in the same class at school as my wife's cousin  in Stevenage I think they were friends. But he's such a moaner when things are not going his way undoubtedly he is the best In qualifying at present but if you compare his race wins he is not the brightest star.

    I have all 3 of them and yes the 2005 is the best. I've just sent off one to ngc hope to get a good grade. I think  the price will go up for all of them

    Hello, received quite a few coins this week. The last package was from an Australain eBay seller and included the proof 2002 1/2 sovereign, 1990 silver £1 proof coin, the 1995 £2 2nd world war silver proof and the 1986 U.K. BU coin collection. A bit of a mixed bag and was really only after the 1/2 sovereign but the others are nice looking coins.

    I just got my lastest order from @BackyardBullion It started with the silver globe, one of which I managed to get hold of. Really love how it looks, with the finish and the base (props to BYB senior). Added another silver forum bar, a ripple square and some copper coins (because of the dragon design 😊) to my order. I really love the ripples on the square. It's a bit difficult to properly photograph, but it's a cool effect in the lighting.

    Also received some gold...
    Added a first to the gold sovereign collection. An 1866 Sydney Branch Mint Queen Victoria Australia One Sov.

    An 1887 Jubilee Head (London Mint) Gold Sovereign from an eBay auction...
    And a “lucky dip” 1957 Gold Sovereign from APMEX.
    Overall a good spread of sovs added to the collection!

    Chard do laptops now? No wonder their customer service has gone down hill. Clearly spreading themselves to thin. 😀

    Getting close to the time i'll buy another half sov. Before i jump on the dealers sites is anyone looking to shift any at the moment? Not too sure the ages but i do quite like the older ones  i normally just grab a random year.

    They say the 2012 looks a lot better as a proof - but they go for lots of money.  The 2005 is a bit cartoon-like but I agree it is a nicer bullion coin than the 2012.  You may want to think about the 2002 as well.

    Hi All, as you will be aware the sovereigns from 2005 and 2012 are a different design. With this in mind I wanted to ask whether you guys thought that in the long run they could be better investments than the average modern year sov? It seems possible to pick them up for a low premium so I’m almost inclined to look at them over “random year” or “best value” coins. 
    Keen to hear eat people’s thoughts. Tom

    I'm still kinda fond of the 2017 proof. It grows on you... like greyscale...
    Surely not as bad as the Canadians' portrait?
