    Advantages
    Very close to spot for a fractional gold coin.
    highly liquid.
    Capital gains tax free.
    Historic coin.
    You may get lucky and pick up a rare/good grade sov as bullion.
     
    Disadvantages.
    There are a few fakes out there like jewelers coins (usually struck in a lower ct gold) even a few old gold plated platinum ones but they are fairly easy to spot when you know what a real sov looks like.
    Can get a little boring sometimes stacking just sovs (unless you start buying unique design years like 1989, 2002. 2012 but cost a premium)
    Regular bullion sovs will only ever track spot price whereas coins such as queens beasts may appreciate above spot price.

    Augustus1 got a reaction from Roy in Bought Silver, and now Gold?   
    hello, my I suggest , and this is  from someone who is also fairly new to precious metal /stacking too with a fraction of your investment fund to make/made ,you don't rush into any purchase until you are more familiar to what constitutes a good investment in gold in what ever form that takes for  either for wealth protection or future gains. being here will help a lot but I feel you need to know more especially in your comment  about the silver purchase "Now afterwards I wondering if I did something right" the oracle here called Numistacker has lots of videos on you tube which are worth a watch , in regards coins , etc ,.
    anyway hope you don't mind the advice ,  I am still learning too so know your dilemma

    My first attempt to grade some sovereigns turned out quite successful, the little beasts did ok, too.

    Augustus1 got a reaction from Pampfan in What was your best precious metal investment over the past 2 years?   
    not at all sure what mine is, or would be as I have yet to sell any of my Pm, be it coins, bars, to realise any profit,  might find out in three years time when I plan to retire and liquidate some , but I can see things like the 2005 proofs I own have increased in value , may be the best is the 11 coin 1887 set, which stands me at £0 but  that's because in inherited that so may not count, i think the next step i must take is getting into my first grading to maximize some of the values .

    Slowly, realised a few months ago that I can't just buy everything I like.  Still coming to terms with it and contemplating taking the plunge and letting some of it go.
