    Sovereigns or other gold.....

    Bringing it back to the sovereigns, does anybody have experience with buying the mixed date sovereigns from Atkinsons? Seems like they are closest to spot

    Sovereigns or other gold.....

    Thanks for that, i wonder how it works with transactions on this forum? I would even go as far as saying that lots of people wouldnt even necessarily know that they had to pay CGT on those transactions.

    Sovereigns or other gold.....

    CGT question here. When selling your coins, as established already, any profit over and above £11,300 is taxable. Now, my question is how do they know how much you purchased the coins for? And secondly if all your coins were bought over a number of years and essentially “off the books” how would they know to even look in to taxing you? Or are we supposed to declare it, taking in to account the purchase prices of coins potentially bought over a decade say at many different spot prices? Am i missing something?

    Gold Price & Opinions on this forum

    My plan, for what it is worth is to purely use my gold as a store of wealth. For that reason i am not paying a vast amount of attention to the gold price other than trying to buy low and close to spot. I find it far too easy to spend money that is sitting in the bank, gold for me is there to be looked at for its beauty and to help me and my loved ones along in years to come.

    2018 Piedfort Sovereign Design

    Question for you as a gold noob trying to gain knowledge.... Is the quite considerable premium for the Piedfort worth it going forward?

    @sovereignsteve cheers for that, but dont put yourself down. I am 100% certain you know more about the subject than me!! Haha. Not planning on being much of a stacker myself unless my financial situation improves drastically, just looking to diversify my assets a bit and buy some beautiful coins along the way. Its a win-win in my book 👌

    I too am growing to love them, that coming from someone that only has 1 x 2018 sov. looking to pick up a few older ones too soon. Picked up my current sovereign from atkinsons so thankfully no postage to pay on that. From all you sovereign experts out there are there any particular years/monarchs that can be picked up near spot that are of special interest or just plain beautiful to look at?

    Thanks for the quick reply, in that case i think my decision is made. out of interest is there any particular reason that sovereigns come in so much closer to spot?

    First things first as the title explains i am new to gold, have been buying silver for a little while but i view gold as a better long term store of wealth (pension, rainy day etc). At the present time i am looking to stack for gold content against numismatic value but never say never. To cut a long story short my question is why am i finding sovereigns (gold content) cheaper than pure 24k gold coins? For this reason alone i have chosen sovereigns as my coin of choice over and above even brittanias etc. Am i correct is this assessment? silverbeaker

    Joe Rogan talks to Peter Schiff - Bitcoin WILL Fail?

    Maybe i am just too dense to understand cryptocurrencies, for that reason alone i’m out. Also i fail to believe that it is 100% resistant to hacking, it was created by a man and man can bring it down, maybe not now but some day somebody far brighter than any of us will work out a way in

    Joe Rogan talks to Peter Schiff - Bitcoin WILL Fail?

    If i am completely honest bitcoin confuses me and for that reason i haven't invested. I can't quite get my head around investing in a made up digital currency with no intrinsic value, it had essentially nothing to back it up! All it would take is one big data breach or massive hacker attack and any value would be wiped out overnight.
