    100g Bar - does not get much better than this!

    South Africa Sovereign

    Lovely coin. There is a very popular thread called ‘today I received’ where you can post pics and comment on your golden and silver goodies.

    Khnum, the Latest in the Egyptian Gods Series...

    Anyone collecting this fantastic series can get one from @SilverStan directly from his website: https://www.preciousgoldandsilver.co.uk/product-page/khnum-2-oz-ultra-high-relief-silver-round-egyptian-gods I’ve just pre-ordered mine from Lee, and can say that his customer service is second to none, products are dispatched promptly and packaging is fab.

    I wouldn’t worry too much about the grade. What’s not to like?

    GOLD DEALS - See a deal, post here :)

    I don't think GS.be is a regular place to seek out older Sovereigns (as well as other interesting Quarter oz coins). I noticed they have quite a few Veiled Head Victoria Sovereigns in stock that might be of interest to some, particularly if bought through the Group Order. The Sovereigns are keenly priced too- around £235. https://goldsilver.be/en/16-14-oz-gold

    Good investment or not?

    Thank you to all who have replied/reacted to this thread, you have helped me out with my decision making here. I bought the Half Sovereign😀. Thanks to @Roy and @KevinJam as always, for sound advice and support. Thanks @SILVERFINGER. I kind of changed the question to it being about my indecision, so no misunderstanding. Your advice of not rushing in and perhaps regretting the decision was taken on board, and I took a couple of hours shut eye this afternoon before my night shift, and the rest allowed me to be more divisive. Thank you. As you say Roy, it will be a damn fine addition to my collection. The extremely favourable counter offer of £270+ £7 special delivery postage by the eBay seller, in response to my ridiculously low initial offer will make this purchase over time, a sound decision. Taking it down a further fiver with a Nectar voucher to £272 makes it even better😉 I am in no doubt, that without the help of this Forum, I wouldn't be where I am now in my investment journey in such a short space of time.

    Thanks @SILVERFINGER I have decided to wait and have a look for a 2017 Sovereign.

    Good investment or not?

    I wish I had someone else's cash to spend on this one! But seriously, I'm really torn with it. I would usually make a decisive decision so perhaps I should leave it...I'm not in the best of moods for making any decisions as I'm on nights starting tonight, I hate night shifts.

    Thanks Kevin, appreciated as you know your Sovereign coins. I initially thought the same, as it appears to be a great price but my apprehension comes from me wanting the Sovereign. Feels a bit like jam today!

    Good investment or not?

    Some advice required please. Is the 2017 Royal Mint 200th Anniversary Gold Proof Half Sovereign a good investment or not. It’s boxed with COA. I have been offered it for £277. OR, should I gather more cash together and buy the Sovereign Proof?

    Worst-looking 1oz gold coins

    I would definitely take Jabba above any of those Royal commemorative coins pictured above. That 2018 Royal Wedding is particularly grim.
