  1. 2000, 2004 & 2007 SOLD Reminder that I will be subsidising the Special Delivery Postage- so only £4 delivered. Insured, tracked and signed for. Now three left. Years available: 2001, 2003, 2006
  2. 2017 Gold Sovereign BU 200th Anniversary - Strike on the Day Low COA 073 TRADE OFFER IN EXCHANGE FOR x2 nice condition Bullion Sovereigns Please Note: Please Read this listing carefully prior to considering the offer of this Limited Sovereign which I have priced accordingly to account for its imperfections. It includes the tattiest and most dog-eared outer box you will ever care to see, and the rosewood box is scuffed somewhat. I am trading this Brilliant Uncirculated Sovereign as seen, and drawing your attention to its sub-standard condition. The trade for x2 Bullion Sovereigns is a fair one I think (Better still if your trading x2 H&B Sovereigns 😉) Please satisfy yourself and carefully study the photographs prior to any trade- as it is clearly hazy, has surface marks and as such the Sovereign is clearly not in tip-top condition and will require restoration. If you require further photographs, I will send them to you, but to be honest- it wouldn't matter how many photos I might take- it won't get any better. If the trade isn’t forthcoming it’ll be going to @Numistacker for NCS conservation. Below attributed to Chards -This sovereign was struck on 1st July, 2017, the 200th anniversary of the 1817 proclamation that revived the sovereign. This BU sovereign is issued with a plain edge and has a mintage of just 1,817. The coins were only issued as individual coins in a presentation box with a certificate of authenticity and did not appear in any coin sets. -Struck in 22 carat gold and finished to Brilliant Uncirculated Standard -Accompanied by a booklet and hand signed Certificate of Authenticity- which is a very low No. 073. ALSO FROM the CHARDS WEBSITE: Please note that these coins have some small production marks. These Brilliant Uncirculated coins have been struck three times and are not the same quality as the proof sovereign which is struck up to six times.

  6. Yes- twice yearly- January & July. It’s a Coin, Stamp & Postcard fair at the racecourse. Emphasis is Stamps & Postcards but a good 60 ish coin dealers today. I would have advertised it, but thought it would be already known about/ popular for us Northerners... maybe it’ll be a bigger hit, come HS2?- Not! http://www.ukcoinfairs.com/Fairs/008y/york-racecourse-stamp-and-coin-fair
  7. I was already thinking that they need a nice place to live.
  8. As per @Silvergun‘s post above- I too received a Gillick Sovereign, from @ilovesilverireallydo a 1962, arrived In the post today. I enjoyed the 3 days worth of fun banter until we came to a deal! I think I have his 4 Ducat purchase to thank for clinching it and making this deal possible! And today went to the York Coin Fair and picked up the last three ‘57, 59 & 1963 I really ‘needed’ to make up the remainder of the Mary Gillick Portrait x10 Sovereign run. Met some nice people there and saw some beautiful and rare Sovereigns. Here’s the 4 from today: And here’s the date run together:

    Hi @Xander. I always list my coins to ship worldwide but will only do so using the Global Shipping Programme (GSP) despite me knowing full well that the poor old buyer will have a ridiculous chunk of postage added on. The reason is to protect myself, once the item gets to the GSP depot in Lichfield, my liability as a seller ends- I don’t have any worries if the item doesn’t reach the buyer, eBay/ their shipping agent shoulder the claim- in apparently all cases for example, I sold an item to a buyer in the USA and they had used a credit card Fraudulently and again, I had no liability and the payment I received was not even put on hold. Ebay is the Wild West- for sellers, buyers have all the protection they need in the majority of cases. Like @AppleZippoandMetronome Says, I would contact the seller and ask if he could send you an invoice with direct postage from him- he can then do a risk assessment of you based on past feedback/ your interaction with him etc. etc. And he might well oblige- I do if I’m reasonably satisfied of the buyer- or perhaps ask to cancel the order. Don’t also expect a 5 star service from eBay’s shipping partner under GSP if you do go ahead. I shipped an expensive coin to Germany and the buyer told me he came home to find it on top of his wheelie bin! To summarise- I know it’s a rip off and makes my items uncompetitive at times however, GSP affords me protection as long as it reaches their depot. Unfortunately, not all of us who use eBay are decent, it’s tiring hearing from ‘dave1234’ by eBay message asking ‘ere mate, have you shipped the coin yet- and when you track it, it’s already signed by ‘Dave’....some people want their cake and eat it, and then take another lump...
  13. Nice Proofs in return? 😃 You are right though, these look great lined up together...
  14. Always nice to buy from the Forum, better still to trade coins with each other and best of all is doing the above face to face. Nice meeting up with you today@1817SovereignCollector.
  15. Yes, eBay. Pleased you didn’t bid too! Competition was tough enough 😉
  16. Satisfying my appetite for Libertads further, and doing my spreadsheet no favours at all, I managed to pick these little beauties up. The 1992 & ‘94 sets are toning nicely in true ‘treasure coin’ fashion. It’s going to be an effort getting off my backside to do any jobs my wife has left me to do this afternoon- even the potential wrath of an angry women might not prevent me squandering the remainder of the afternoon ogling them.
