  • What I am collecting / Investing in.
    Began stacking 1 oz gold Krugerrands and bullion gold Sovereigns. Added the Rwandan Lunar series 1 oz gold Year of the Rooster and Year of the Dog as Collector pieces. Continued with a small stack of 1 oz and 1/2 oz gold Krugerrands and 1 oz gold Canadian Maples. From there I really came to enjoy the numismatic aspect and history of the gold Sovereign. Having grown a variety of Sovereign collection from the first modern Sovereign from 1817 to the current 2017 rendition of that Sovereign into the 2018 proof. I started adding the 1/4 oz gold Queen’s Beast series and a 1/4 oz gold Britannia. I have a small collection of silver, mostly proof coins to minimally tip the silver to gold ratio.

    Today I Received

    Unknowingly taking advantage of the lowest spot price for gold this week...just received two lucky dip Gold Sovereigns! A rather well worn 1907 Edward VII Gold Sovereign. Didn’t have this one yet... And adding to my other two, another 1957 QE2 Gold Sovereign...
  2. Good call! I see the variety of L-sized trays...covers a good expanse of coin holders/slabs. Need to pay better attention to the Lighthouse Coin Accessories catalog! 😁
  3. @SILVERFINGER, thank you! I was thinking of asking @Alun his perspectives on building a customized piece...since I think his Queen’s Beast, Horsemen, Sovereign and Marvel handcrafted boxes do look amazing.
  4. Thanks, @Gildeon! I saw this one last night when doing some browsing. How sturdy are the trays? I had noted that the coin slots were smaller than 2 inch x 2 inch Quadrum holders, but the trays weren’t designed for them. Overall, it looks like round capsules would fit, with Sovereigns more free floating than others.
  5. Will do! At present, I use the Lighthouse Volterra Trio de Luxe presentation cases for Quadrum holders, and one for slabs. Just ordered one more since I ran out of room in the other ones.

    Sovereign Errors, Overdates and Varieties

    1, 2, 3, 4...63, 64, 64, 65, 66...cr@p, lost count!😣
  7. @Lr103, I have seen these boxes on Apmex. I do like the style...trouble is the style and design isn’t proportionate for housing Gold Sovereigns 😕 . I can image the box is pretty impressive, especially with your collection of 5 oz America Thr Beautifuls!

    More RM stuff

    The Gazette, Official Public Record...from what I have seen posted by others, there are proclamations in British coinage via this venue of public record. https://www.thegazette.co.uk/about “The Gazette is the UK’s official public record, and is comprised of three publications: The London Gazette (published every weekday), The Belfast Gazette (published on Fridays) and The Edinburgh Gazette (published on Tuesdays and Fridays). However, notices may be submitted, and publish online, on any day of the week. The Gazette is a government publication, managed by The Stationery Office, under the superintendence of The National Archives. As the official public record, information published is verified and certified as fact. Issues are available by subscription or online, and are fully searchable via the website. The first Gazette issue was in 1665 as The Oxford Gazette, and though the nature of its contents has evolved over time, its standing as the official public record has remained.” Obviously those in the UK can elaborate more!😁
  9. I know, that’s what I thought!...for that much it better have some pre-stocked Sovereigns tucked away in there.
  10. Obviously there are a multitude of methods for our coin storage, whether of our stacks or precious numismatics. I was wondering of others thoughts and considerations on the use of coin cabinets. Would they accommodate coins in capsules? Would the design be strictly limited to coins outside of any protection...hence not for use with proof coins? The following is an example of one type of coin cabinet that The Royal Mint is beginning to produce... I have looked for other coin cabinets for sale, but most are antiques and sold in auctions.

    Excellent Crowns! “The History of the Sovereign: Chief Coin of the World” is a good read and overall a great historical piece on the Sovereign. @sg86 and I have been discussing additional Sovereign reference books. So now the added passion is finding other references on The Royal Mint and Sovereign minting.

    Anyone used a 3D Floating stand for display?

    I have a Lighthouse Floating Frame that I use for a 3 inch Bronze medal. The medal has some weight to it so it has dropped off center from its placement in the frame. Overall, the functionality and appearance is above average.

    First class tickets. Still need to work out the “silver child” custody agreement...I think @mr-dead retains custody since he found it.
