    First foray into Platinum.  Thanks @kneehow2018. 


    A grotty looking and fingerprinted 2015 Half Sovereign, Jody Clark Portrait from eBay. 


    And a Gillick Portrait Set

    Bought sans Sovereigns so had to fill it myself.

    Best thing is the handy hideaway for the other eight year dates of the Gillick Bullion Sovereigns.

    Not sure my camera does them justice - they are quite stunning ...

    The other day I received, for a second time, my 1776 Maria Theresia Taler, after it was graded, thanks to @Numistacker. Some might describe the grading result as a disaster but I still like it, it's still AU and it was conserved so it is almost as shiny as a new bullion coin, now. My first graded coin - I would have imagined the NGC slabs bigger, from the photos and videos. They are actually quite handy. Given the "detail" result, I will probably still get it out of the slab and put it into a capsule with a foam ring. It still makes a very nice, historical, ungraded coin.

    and after conservation:

    I'm really impressed with the Magnificent Maple Leaves 10 ounce silver coin. If you don't have one, make it your next item. The detail of the leaves is very impressive. I know it's sacrilege but I wish they used this version on the 1 ounce.
    I feel like I crossed a rite of passage and now have my first PAMP gold bar:)

    This 1 gram Heraeus gold bar arrived in record time from @goldmember44. Considering the distance it travelled I'm impressed that it only took under 18 hours.

    … the initial results and stark consequences of my front-loading, year-to-date, pre-Brexit bullion purchasing strategy, in anticipation of a possible end to the availability of cheap and/or VAT-free silver in the UK.

    Most of this was acquired before the original March 29th exit date from the EU. So, pretty good timing … with the benefit of hindsight.
    Anyway … as of now, 76 more days (at least) to add to the pile!
    Consequences? … Urgent trip to B&Q required, to buy more robust cutting tools for the ‘great unboxing’ that lies ahead!

    Further to my video on the Celebration Sovereign (https://youtu.be/XuLccmpjkm4) it appears there IS a difference between the February and November coins after all. The spacing of the ribbing on the mulled edge is wider on the November coin and Narrow on the February coin.

    @CadmiumGreen  That 1/2 oz Walking Liberty is gorgeous.  Do yourself a favor and try to pick up the 1/10 Mercury dime  and the 1/4 Standing Liberty quarter.  The three together make a beautiful set.  I love mine.  I think the U.S. Mint hit a home run in celebrating the 100 year anniversary of the release of these 3 beautiful coins in 1916.
