  1. Also on eBay is a 2016 Peter Rabbit 50p for £8.8 million - I am really regretting not buying this one when it was issued!
  2. I am not sure what you mean by the scratches being "restorable" - I would have thought a scratch is a scratch. As to condition, I would have thought it was more like a "fine" rather than "UNC".
  3. I think it all depends on your definition of “success”. Sure, the Royal Mint managed to sell some 225 nice looking gold coins in a couple of hours, and the owners of these coins will be very happy especially seeing the current resale prices. However, I am sure there are quite a number of other people that are just baffled as to why the Royal Mint did not produce a gold 1oz version, or a quintuple sovereign sized version – I think these would have been nearer the size of the original coin (though I stand to be corrected on this). I think these would have been even more popular (though the % increase in price in the secondary market may not have been as high).
  4. I'm glad this sort of thing does not happen in the UK.
  5. I've heard that they do re-strike coins, so you will not necessarily be getting someone else's returns. I know it is a hassle, but I think it would be worth trying to get a perfect coin. And at £4K it should be perfect.
  6. "A fool and his money are soon parted."
  7. From the picture used by Chards, it looks as if the 2020 bullion sovereign will not have the privy mark which is used on the 2020 proof version of the sovereign.
  8. It is the 2009 version that is scarce - less than 20,000 were sold.
  9. As you are in France, are you exempt from UK VAT?
  10. Yes, a SOTD with Victoria and Albert privy marks to celebrate their marriage on 10th February 1840!
  11. I'm surprised they let you take silver on planes - they are obviously not worried about the price exploding!
  12. I am really sorry to hear this. I thought they would cancel orders at this price - that was why I did not place an order. Anyway, we live in hope...
  13. I admire your optimism. I fear a standard gold sovereign with a "70" privy mark - maybe with a crown above it (or possibly below it) to make it totally different to the 2018 issue.
  14. I hope you are saving up a lot of money - the Royal Mint will probably have a limited edition of... 70 !
