    It's easy just do what I do.
    I don't regard any sovereign produced after the late sixties as worth collecting other than a few proof issues.

    That is true. But it’s just the fact that the Sovereign seems to me to be less iconic because of the numerous variations that are deliberately being thought up every year now.

    Whilst I’m here..what is everyone hoping to see?
    My personal wish list would be:-
    5  coin silver proof box set - Gruffalo,Fox,Mouse,Snake and Owl. (With a Mintage below 2000)
    1 Gold Gruffalo (Mintage under 500)
    We will find out at midnight,@sovereignsteve

    I've been having a closer look at the design of the coin and while the obverse is quite nice, with lots of detail, I think the reverse is appalling.
    Unlike other BU sovereigns this one is more like the bullion coin for detail rather than the proof. I don't like the engraving of George, his torso and leg are far too angular and unnatural, and his head and helmet are too flat.
    It would be ok if it were a bullion coin but for the premium it's a poor show.

    Went to Cathedral Cove on the Coromandel, used in one of the Narnia films and that wasn't crowded, pretty much empty actually. Although I suppose nothing can compete with de Caprio😀
    Beautiful place.
    I want to go back to Venice but the stories of the overcrowding now are putting me off.

    sovereignsteve reacted to Kookaburracollector in fake ebay seller warning   
    This happens a lot on eBay and they know it..! don’t think for a minute that they do not have computer algorithms that detect buyer / seller relationships because they do...BUT..they very rarely do anything about it.
    Several months ago I noticed that I had been outbid by someone (on a coin) by a bidder who had (the previous month) bought a microwave from the same seller for £1..think about it...what are the chances of someone being the highest bidder on a microwave and then the following month buying a coin from the same seller,,ZERO!
    I foolishly presented this ‘slam dunk’ evidence to Ebay who listened, understood and did sweet FA cup final about it.
    I have learnt over time..too late really ..to just let things go..we all want to play the role of the righteous man, but remember this...’a bad system will always beat a good person’. Sometimes in life you know you are right but you have to let it go...(like being married😩)
    Accept the fact that Ebay does work 95% of the time, if you are careful and don’t deal with newbies that % may rise to 97. Build this into your business model and accept the fact that 3% will xxxxxx you up!
    I have been on the receiving end of some absolute howling decisions in the past from Ebay, but have always ended up on the winning end so far. Fortunately for me, I have CCTV on my house to prove that the van driver really did not deliver that coin to my address and I also studied law at university.
    Try the forum first, eBay second. That said, the 1900 20 francs rooster I just posted on ‘Today I Received’ came from eBay and it is a gem.
    Juat take care, and don’t let your personal desire for a bargain overwhelm your common sense.

    They should all be like this and a lot, lot cheaper. Typical RM extracting every last pound of profit out of the poor, unfortunate collector.
     
    Added 0 minutes later... They won't sell all of these which is a shame as there would be loads on the secondary market in years to come at normal bullion sov prices.
