  1. Good looking out! I bought pre-sale a one and a two ounce versions - I don't want any dam- milk spots!
  2. Ah, yes, well what I was getting at was that the mintage of "uncirculated" bullion pieces, even if unlimited, may ultimately be lower. This has happened frequently with the US Gold American Eagle series where the most expensive of the whole 30+ year run are uncirculated coins of certain dates, not the proofs. So there may actually be a lower final mintage of uncirculated coins in some instances. Also, if for whatever reason, the appearance of an uncirculated coins is preferred then it may become more popular with more demand.
  3. In general, this can occur if the supply/demand curve favours the first. This can happen if fewer were made or for some reason they are preferred by potential buyers. Not sure about this particular coin however.
  4. 1940 USD seems a bit steep, even given the current price of gold.... I got the silver, design of obverse is a bit questionable. I like the eagle reverse which is uncluttered by extra legends.
  5. Wow, Britannia looks quite the -itch, and Germannia quite cold. Not like the artist's rendering we were shown a couple of months ago IMO.
  6. One thing I was wondering about: at what point do the Royal Mint throw in the towel and melt leftovers.
  7. Wow, very nice. I really like these. I only have one of the golds, a 2005 1/2 oz. Getting a couple of the kilos has me up to FIVE, but three are more common types bought as bullion. I'm thinking those breasts look to be 21st century surgically enhanced....LOL
  8. Some of the Libertads are seemingly going unrecognised for rarity. I was able to get one of these with shipping included for $723 from APMEX of all places. Mintage: 200 I think they have now risen in price however.
  9. This rendition does nothing for the design, which IMO is washed out. I have one in the designer frame, which is nice (overpriced though!). I have tried to get these but think the 52 quid admission price too steep for what it is.
  10. That MS64 1913C is really a great coin. I was able to content myself with a "63" which is not quite as nice. The 1914 C seems to be out there in 63/4 grade and it does seem the 1909C is underrated in like condition.
  11. I got mine in USA for 1330 USD when gold was a bit higher. I think that the bullion coins are many times the way to go. The biggest laugher is the QB in silver with the bullion 10 oz going for about 180 and the proof 500% marked up from that!

    Germania/Britannia

    Wonder what gimmick they will have on this issue? They really worked the sole Germania. Now what heat sensitive garments that disappear with added heat? Seems possible....
  13. I am only seeing the shilling. IMO, wiped and retoned, this would either details grade for it or go possibly "35". Not EF or AU though.
  14. IMO, this is "as struck" but unfortunately on poorly prepared flans, not all of the marks are struck out by pressure of the die strike - in other words, this is NOT post strike damage.

    Germania/Britannia

    Britannia decidedly hot in this upcoming one! Yikes, not a lot of dignity there though....
