    Sovereigns........old vs new.

    Thanks for your reply. I’ve been having a look at Sharps Pixley. Would you consider £239 to be a fair price for a Elizabeth II pre decimal or Edward VIII sovereign? I really cannot find any sovereigns cheaper when factoring in delivery.

    Sovereigns........old vs new.

    Hi all, novice here again. After posting recently about what type of gold bullion to buy, I’m thinking sovereigns are most suitable for me. So, having found a relatively reasonable dealer I’m wondering if old is better than new? Victoria, Edward VIII and George V are they better than recent Elizabeth II Sovereigns for the long term investor or doesn’t it matter? I know the older sovereigns minted in Sydney and Melbourne with marks can fetch a premium. I used to have an 1880 Victoria Sydney sovereign but sadly had to part with it. But now I’m ready to invest again.

    Gold. Where do I start?

    Thank you for your reply. I wonder what it is about the Queen’s Beast collection that demands such high prices. I did notice that when looking for 1oz gold coins for sale. I wonder, would you consider 5,000 a low mintage for the 2018 1oz Britannia Oriental border coin? I’m still stuck on this and a sovereign or five sovereigns as a future investment. I’m looking to invest long term really, 10-15 years roughly but also something I can shift if funds required. Thanks for your advice.

    Well not so much of a mistake, it’s more what I could afford at the time. I wish I’d had the funds for gold 4/5 years ago.

    Gold. Where do I start?

    Hi all, I’m new here and relatively new into bullion buying. I’ve bought silver 1oz coins for a few years now and never having had the funds to really branch into gold I’m now ready. I have a conservative amount of £1,000/£1,250 to spend and I just don’t know what to invest in. I’ve been looking at the following options: 1 x 1oz Gold Britannia and 1 x Gold Sovereign (I’ve got my eye on the 1oz Gold Britannia with oriental border.) worth it? 4-5 x Gold sovereigns (Mixed years) or other low gold content coins 1/10 oz gold Britannia’s, half sovereigns etc. Can anyone advise? Please appreciate that whilst I’m quite knowledge about silver bullion, I’m a complete novice when it comes to gold.
