  1. Sorry I think the 1913M is not a key date. Mintage that year was around 2.3 million coins. DrakeSterling Numismatics have a 1913M PCGS MS63 for sale on their website for A$675 which is around US$450. So you paid a reasonable price at US$330.
  2. Hello fellow SilverForum members, Have uploaded a new short video to the Coin Struck YouTube channel showing the arrival of the new 2020 Royal Mint proof sovereign. Very happy with the coin and the George III cypher looks great. Here is the link to my channel. I hope you take a look and enjoy. As always it would be great to hear what you think. https://m.youtube.com/channel/UC32DEmDzkaZCBTBVTDiYr0A Thanks for reading. Coin Struck
  3. The 2020 proof sovereign. Bought direct from the Royal Mint and the condition is great.
  4. Hello fellow SilverForum members, Have uploaded a new video to the channel showing four 2011 50p Olympic coins I just bought from eBay. These are my first UK Olympic coins, some lovely designs. Here is the link to my channel. I hope you take a look and enjoy. As always it would be great to hear what you think. https://m.youtube.com/channel/UC32DEmDzkaZCBTBVTDiYr0A Thanks for reading.

  5. Mate you and Grumpy Dave would love the Royal Mint tour. Even though I live in Perth I have not done the Perth Mint tour. Its on my list of things to do!
  6. Not received today, actually back in September when my wife and I did the Royal Mint Gold VIP tour. During the tour you can strike your own sovereign and here it is!
  7. Hello fellow SilverForum members, Have uploaded a new video about the Royal Mint Gold VIP tour that Mrs Coin Struck and i were lucky enough to do back in September. It was a great day seeing the factory floor, archive, museum and lots of amazing and rare coins. RM designer Jody Clark provided a presentation that day and we were able to get him to kindly sign the COA for my "strike your own sovereign" and our 50p Sherlock Holmes. Here is the link to my channel. I hope you take a look and enjoy. As always it would be great to hear what you think. https://m.youtube.com/channel/UC32DEmDzkaZCBTBVTDiYr0A Thanks for reading.

  8. Hello fellow SilverForum members, Have uploaded a new video showing a recent eBay buy of six 50p coins. They are all the larger version 50p coins and include the 1992-1993 UK EU Presidency and D-Day landings commeratives. Here is the link to my channel. I hope you take a look and enjoy. As always it would be great to hear what you think. https://m.youtube.com/channel/UC32DEmDzkaZCBTBVTDiYr0A Thanks for reading. Coin Struck
  9. This is one where I was able to get one direct from the RM. Was very excited when it arrived in Austrlia but it had condition problems, was so disappointed. There was clearing frosting missing from the Queens portrait. Returned the coin and was refunded but they had sold out and so no replacement.
  10. Hello fellow SilverForum members, Have uploaded a new video showing the 50p gold and silver Piedfort proof "Shape of a Revolution" coins. It has taken a while to complete this video as the first gold proof had quite a few condition problems on the reverse of the coin. So it had to be returned and fhe Royal Mint sent a replacement, the new coin looks perfect! Here is the link to my channel. I hope you take a look and enjoy. As always it would be great to hear what you think. https://m.youtube.com/channel/UC32DEmDzkaZCBTBVTDiYr0A Thanks for reading. Coin Struck
  11. Just thought this article from the Australian press would be of interest. A lot more of Australian produced and refined gold appears to be making its way into the UK as British buyers switch cash into gold pending Brexit. Until fairly recently I understand the main markets for Australian gold were into Asia, mainly China (worlds largest consumer of gold) and India and the Middle East.
  12. Hello fellow SilverForum members. New video showing two sovereigns purchased separately from eBay over the last two weeks. The first is a 1931 Perth Mint sovereign and the second a 1871 London Mint Shieldback sovereign. Both beautiful coins with lots of history. Here is the link to my channel. I hope you take a look and enjoy. As always it would be great to hear what you think. https://m.youtube.com/channel/UC32DEmDzkaZCBTBVTDiYr0A Thanks for reading. Coin Struck
  13. Yes I think the very rapid issue of 50p coins has not been a good idea by the RM. Its saturating the collector market.
  14. A pick up from Australian eBay, the 1931 Perth Mint sovereign. The last sovereign produced in Perth as a UK branch mint.
