    xthomasx reacted to FoolzGold in Queens Beasts 1oz Griffin Gold Now Out Of Stock at the RM   
    Probably down to numbers (supply/demand) as much as anything else. Before the RM went dark with their sales figures they revealed that they sold 22,707 Lions, 13,159 Griffins, and 14,456 Dragons. So there are 72% more Lions than Griffins out there.
    We don't know how sales of later coins have been but there has probably been an uptick over time as more people started collecting the series. That said I suspect the jump in the gold price has maybe had an impact on sales of the Yale and may impact the remaining coins if prices stay high... Difficult to say how the prices of each coin may vary in the long term.

    If it was only a bullion coin, maybe you should have asked them why they were wanting such a high premium over the spot price!

    Bullion By Post has what appears to be a genuine Saudi gold guinea in stock and what a truly magnificent world coin! It’s the same size as a British gold sovereign.

    Got my notice as well. Will take an unspecified period of time, though. They said that the delivery will be between Jun 4th and 10th but in the end they are usually much faster.

    Oh sure, but to be able to actually handle coins that have real history infused within them is something much more visceral than admiring something as a trophy.
    I am a big fan of both but for very different reasons.

    You have to admire the outstanding pull across the world of the sovereign in all its forms. It really is a remarkable story and a marvellously practical, above all else, workhorse of a coin.

    I am a German member. 
    Germany has about 83 million citizens. 45 million gold owners would be 54%. 
    I can not imagine that that is true. A small piece of jewelery... Maybe. But bullion coins or bars? I really don't think so. Many people have a lot of debt and are far away from owning gold.

    Seems like a beautiful excuse to visit Stuttgart. Some culture, time away from London, and importantly, a bit of cheeky coin shopping!
