  1. I believe these are standard bullion. 😉 The newer sovereigns have very reflective mirror like fields, but they have no frosting on the design.

    White Lion

    It is inevitable to compare it to the majestic lion of England design, which makes the white lion or Mortimer pale in comparison. Nevertheless, i think it is not that bad 😉
  3. How about the Sydney mint half sovereign from 1855 to 1870? They are different effigy of Queen Victoria. Type I: https://www.pcgs.com/valueview/victoria-1855-1901/1855-sy-1-2-sov/5057?sn=446016&h=pop Type II: https://www.pcgs.com/valueview/victoria-1855-1901/1857-sy-1-2-sov/5057?sn=113006&h=pop

    The other sovereign

    Wow, i was not expecting so many different designs with the sovereign specification!

    The other sovereign

    Thank you. I also just realize that there is this St Helena sov 2019 series, with very nice Una and the lion interpretation. Now i wonder why these coins can be termed as sovereign? For example the Perth mint sovereign is also a $25 denomination coin...

    The other sovereign

    We know that the sovereign has the standard specification of purity, diameter, weight and effigy of the King/Queen since 1817. Besides the standard sovereign from Great Britain and some other mint branches in other countries, I could only think of the following: - Isle of Man sovereign - Gibraltar sovereign - Modern Perth mint sovereign - South Africa gold pound (not really sov, but has the sov specifications) What other sovereign with the same specifications are available?
  7. Problem with NGC is that sometimes the picture quality in the certification is really bad, that it is difficult to counter check with the actual coin... PCGS is better for the picture quality though 😉
  8. Quarter ounce gold proof Yale available in APMEX. 10 pcs available for now... https://www.apmex.com/product/189385/2019-gb-proof-1-4-oz-gold-queens-beasts-yale-w-box-coa
  9. It's a one year only special effigy of Her Majesty, and only on the proof version, probably some added value in time to come...
  10. 2013 Silver Fiji Taku. I prefer the name Takus over the recent Turtles... 1838 Bronze Queen Victoria coronation medal. Gorgeous high relief medal, but could not afford the silver ones which look even better... Anyone know the mintage number for these bronze medal?

    Sovereigns colour

    To make thing worse, some seller confused the shiny surface of the modern sovereign as "proofs" 😉

    2019 proof sovereign

    Seems like there is a Piedfort version for 2019 too? https://www.apmex.com/product/177776/2019-great-britain-gold-sovereign-proof-piedfort " Coin Highlights: Maximum mintage of 1,620. Contains .4708 oz of Gold. Obverse: Displays an effigy of Her Majesty Elizabeth II as well as the date. Reverse: Features St. George and the dragon by Benedetto Pistrucci, an image that has endured for almost 200 years."
  13. Anyone can share what is the estimated pricing for a 1989 1Sov in PF70? Saw one seller selling it but the price is...
  14. While the blue colour PCGS box fits nicely the PCGS holder, it doesnt fit the NGC holder. The box lid cannot close when NGC holder is in it. I saw some forum member customizing wooden boxes for capsuled coins, perhaps an idea to customize one for universal NGC & PCGS holders 😉 @ Martlet, thanks for the tips on the anti tarnish strip and silica packs.
  15. Hello all, i am quite new here with coins in NGC / PCGS holders. How do you store you NGC / PCGS coins? Any additional zipper / ziploc bags needed to keep out air and other contaminants? Cheers.
