    Today I Received.....

    it's quite straightforward, i've never noticed any difference in the surface of the gold when i've done it, but the heat from the soldering usually leaves a mark on the edge. but as you can't grade an ex jewellery coin anyway..........

    You can dissolve away solder from gold if you're prepared to soak your coin for a few weeks.

    GOLD DEALS - See a deal, post here :)

    I'm surprised they will guarantee the price that long, especially if the spot price takes off. Still, I guess they don't regard themselves as bullion dealers so will be able to absorb some market fluctuations.

    Sovereign Errors, Overdates and Varieties

    yes it's a full sov, second bust, sixpence die was only used on the half, and it seems they also used the older 1st bust obverse dies as well.

    Rotated Shield Back Sovereign !

    It's not a rare year, is a gVF grade and has a die rotation, so is essentially a manufacturing fault. It's rotated more than you usually see but would NGC or PCGS grade it as an error? Also bear in mind every coin produced from this die pair will be the same so not rare. People don't generally check for these so most are missed.

    Personally think it's a 6 followed by a worn die/swarf or muck filling the gap in the number to make it look like a 8

    A nice picture of the obverse would be useful too. 😊 Will they post coins at a reasonable cost?
  12. So with the Fed issuing increasingly record numbers of Dollar paper, who the hell is buying it? It used to be China. but according to you, the Yuan will be equally worthless. In theory, all worthless fiat will be convertable but no one will be able to afford to buy gold. What's to stop the world all inter-trading using equally worthless fiat?

    Only guineas issued in 1775 were crowned shield, George III 4th Laureate head and the one in the photo is that type. Spade reverse started in 1787

    2019 Gold Bullion Sovereign

    It's January, absolutely no reason to go rushing out to buy 2019 sovereigns, they'll be around all year and at bullion prices (or so). Choose your time to buy based on the price of gold and how you think it will change. Unless you spread your bullion purchases throughout the year, of course😀
