    1843/8 - Extremely rare, probably the rarest overdate in the shield sovereign series. In superb MS63 condition, an ex-Bentley coin so had to pick it up.

    Well what can I say except @RegalStacker is one generous man!
    I was the lucky winner of one of his many YouTube GAW´s.
    Not only did he give me this fabulous Proof Coin, he sent it all the way to Spain for me 🇪🇸 
    Why not check out some of his content, very honest and straight up fella, says what he thinks, for me, a refreshing change!
    Cheers @RegalStacker

    SovTracker got a reaction from jultorsk in 2018 India Gold Sovereign   
    India Sovereign Mintage s.   I thought you might like these official numbers I got from a contact at The Royal Mint.   Sovereign
    2013
    69,950
    2014
    64,500
    2015
    55,000
    2016
    40,000
    Half-sovereign
    2014
    62,000
      On the Silver Forum @westmintrel had kindly posted similar numbers except for the 2013i.  The reason was that 60,000 where minted in Certicard's and the balance sent to NGC for gifting to dignitaries at the launch in 2013i and labelled up by NGC as GEM UNCIRCULATED.   I understand that the number above is the correct one, not the 90k+ previously shown elsewhere and after talking with @westminstrel we came to the same conclusion about the 2013i and NGC's involvement.   I actually spoke to one of the production team at PAMP when the coins were first struck and he confirmed the initial figure of 50,000 to be put in Certicard's. About 2 months later that figure rose to 60,000 due to demand.   I'm told that 2018 could be the lowest mintage yet as interest is waining a little and it isn't as popular as it was in India.   I'm told the 2017 mintage numbers won't be available until next year.   I hope that helps anyone who is interested.

    Arrived today- recent eBay pick ups, and coins from @fiveshotdon & @arshimo2012.
    The 2012 Half was purchased on behalf of a Forum member who lives outside of the UK but he has kindly agreed to swap it with me for my NGC Graded Half- I now have all this Sovereign year date PCGS graded.
    The 2002 Double in time, will be going off for conservation & grading as it has fingerprint marks.

    So i thought i'd come back to my PM strategy, now that about 6 months have gone by since i've joined the forum (if anything this is for me own record). I have "met" a lot of friendly people on here always willing to offer advice on this stacking/collecting game! Big thanks to @terakris @kimchi @GoodAsGold @Lr103 @Marc @SovTracker amongst others!
    So how have i performed compared to my plan above?
    1) I managed to get up to date with all the variety sovereign proofs and if they were not graded already, sent them to @Numistacker. The slight outlier is having a double 1989 rather then the full (a purely financial decision). But this came back graded a PF70 so doesnt really bother me at all. I have the various designs (and my kids birth years) and that was the goal.

    2) Fully up to date with the 1/4 oz bullion Queen Beasts and in a nice box too!

    3) I did buy some other gold such as a Mexican 20 peso (with the likeable Aztec Calendar) and my absolute favourite, the Dragon & Phoenix  Gold 1 ouncer!

    4) The silver - i may have diverted off the plan way more than i anticipated here. I managed to stack over 200 oz, the majority from forum members or @BackyardBullion group buys! I may think about selling some of this in the future, but for now its just another storage of funds!
    5) Still continuing with the £5 BUNC collection....
    With both the gold and silver buying, i have used the "Buy what you like", not what you think may go up in value. I think i will change this to "Buy what you like or what the wife says". I wasnt intending to buy the Stephen Hawking coins, but she said to, for a variety of reasons. At the moment it looks like her decision was correct!
    I'm still doing my usual selling of circulated coins on ebay and groups in the background, so if anyone is in need, just holla. Where i can help out a fellow forum member I will!
    I'll come back to this in another 6 months and see where I am... "This time next year Rodney"

    My 2019 Brilliant Uncirculated Matt Finish sovereign arrived today.
    The pictures of both coins on the Royal Mint’s web site are shown in a weird colour which almost defies description but which bears no relation to the colour of gold, hence the reason I was keen to do an actual comparison with the proof 2019 sovereign that I already had.
    The most immediate thing one notices is the packaging.  The “matt finish” sovereign comes in a basic cardboard box whereas the proof sovereign was in one of the prestigious wooden boxes.  Also the coin capsule with the “matt finish” sovereign seems to be smaller!
    I do think that “Brilliant Uncirculated” and “Matt Finish” are contradictions in terms!  Surely something is either “brilliant” or “matt”, so can it really be both? 
    To me, the new sovereign does not look to be very “Matt”.  It is certainly has a different finish to both the proof and regular bullion sovereigns, but I am not sure I would call it “Matt”.
