    Today I Received.....

    1980 proof half sovereign bought as bullion, along with a regular 1909 half sov from Hatton Garden. Plus a 'strike your own' 50p, and silver £20 coin from a visit to the mint yesterday. Super happy to have a proof gold coin, even if it is a little spotted on the reverse.

    Investment Advice

    If you're putting money into a help to buy isa, can we assume you're actively saving a deposit for a house? If that's the case, would it be prudent to put as much money into the house as possible? Lower interest rates on mortgages with a higher deposit, paying less interest over the term of the mortgage etc all sound like better investments than gold, imo. In the long term, it should work out to be a better return on your money.

    Royal Mint Issues for 2019?

    They've been doing those since 2016, thanks for reminding me to go and pick some up. I'm guessing they don't advertise them extensively since you can only buy them from the mint if you go in person. It's a weird way to market a coin, but I have a bit of a soft spot for them because of it.

    Sky News Metals Cock-Up

    Illuminati confirmed 🤫
  6. Literary figures seem popular, so I could see them releasing coins commemorating Arthur Conan Doyle, Tolkien, C. S. Lewis etc. Whether they'd be popular or not is anyone's guess, but I'd imagine a Tolkien themed coin/series at least would be sought after.

    Gold Monitoring Thread £ only

    Don't remind me, had my eye on a coin I've wanted for a while, and now I'm reconsidering 😢

    eBay Advice

    Not helpful now, but for future orders you could enable 'pay after delivery'. It gives you two weeks before you need to send any money, but that's reduced to one week if the seller provides a tracking number when the goods are dispatched. Great for buying, pain in the rear as a seller (I'm waiting until Sunday for funds to clear from some coins I sold on the weekend) 😒

    I'm very tempted, depends on how much the older ones are going for though. I'll peruse ebay next pay day

    Nabbed this from ebay. Fell in love with it as soon as I saw it in one of the 'ugliest coin' threads ☺️

    Prices look about right to me. The shield-back sovereign is a wonderful design 🙂

    Dates on Welsh dragon £20 silver coins?

    The date gets changed. And yeah, only available from the mint store, or ebay, if you don't mind the inflated prices.

    Today I bought.....

    Picked up two of these silver £20 coins, since the mint is only a short drive away
