  1. That would be the Quarter Sovereign. Interesting I don’t see it for sale individually on the RM site; usually one can buy the Quarter individually right? 🤔
  2. Indeed. Someone’s gotta have one somewhere other than junked for recycling 😅
  3. You are beyond amazing! PM sent. Thank you, thank you 😊
  4. If it ain’t matte, it ain’t pleasurable enough 😂
  5. If anyone in the UK has received one of these brochures/mailers, could you kindly private message me? Thanks
  6. IMO there’s no point in us cribbing about the RM if we too, as “collectors”, are just buying whatever they dish out. Or am I wrong?
  7. Where did you see that? The 2020 Proof Sovereign range was out a week or so back: https://www.royalmint.com/sovereign/2020-gold-proof-sovereign/
  8. Wasn’t one of the 2008/9/10 years also somehow digitally remastered? Also, KG III died January 29 1820. I honestly and deeply hope they don’t do a frikkin SotD for this. It’ll be a mockery of his death anniversary and of the sovereign as a coin 😐
  9. I did not, but I’m a staff member of a famous Tolkien fan site which has been around since 1999 and I know a bunch of people who worked on these films (Weta Workshop folks). Added 0 minutes later... I will make a mental note when I go home for Christmas to take it out of my cabinet and snap a few pics for you 😊
  10. Not all of it was CGI. I actually have a couple movie props, including a bottle of Dorwinion wine (from the escape scene in Thranduil’s dungeons) with a nice little label inscribed in Elvish and a cute red wax seal. The coin though is really cool 😎 I don’t have it with me right now, or I would have shared a pic.
  11. I don’t have any GOT coins/medals. But I do have a couple silver coins which the NZ Mint had released for LOTR and The Hobbit. And I have one of the actual prop gold coins used in Smaug’s hoard (it is not Dwarf gold unfortunately; just fake gold-painted metal made by the hands of Men 😭).
