    2019 matt finish sovereign

    What type of capsule did it come in, the screw type or the newer push on?

    2019 matt finish sovereign

    I am thinking of buying just as a new collector of sovereigns.

    65th anniversary of the coronation scratch

    I'd say that you indeed got a bargain; seems to me that the market value is about triple of what you paid for it.
  4. Hi everyone- I am a relatively new member to this forum and as a customer of the Royal Mint so please forgive me if this questioned was asked or answered on a different topic thread but I have a couple of questions that hopefully someone can point me into the right direction. 1) Does anyone know where I can purchase the capsule that housed this coin when it was issued? 2) The 22.05 mm capsules that are sold on the Royal Mint's website; are they "lipped" on one side like the push on capsules that came with this and the George's 5th birthday sovereigns. I really need a replacement of this specific capsule and they are impossible to find especially in the U.S. Right now I'm using a spare screw top capsule that I have from the 2017 BU Strike on the Day sovereign.
  5. Beautiful coin, I think I will have to seek one out.

    American Gold 1$ 1873

    There is definitely something about these small gold coins, I had an 1851 $1, overall it looks like an AU(ish) example however I'm not sure it will grade with the scratch on the obverse. Maybe just keep it and enjoy it for what it is. Still a nice pick-up.

    Quarter sovereign No love for the Quarter Sovereigns

    I am curious to see if they come up with something for the 10th anniversary of the quarter sovereign. Probably not seeing as how they've already released the coin along with the other sovereigns.

    You are right sir, my eyes are not what they were in my youth. I will have to give that some thought.

    It looks like that's already sold.

    I think the piedfort sovereign is a gorgeous coin (I have the 2018) so I probably will pass on the 2019 but I am still searching for the 2017 to add to my collection as well as all of the key date proof sovereigns.

    Yes I did, it's a beautiful example of the RM quality and craftsmanship. Same with the piedfort sovereign as well.

    I like the George's 5th b/d sovereign especially with that plain edge. Earlier this year I was really unfortunate not to have scored one of those sapphire coronation sovereigns. That among many others are on my want list.

    2019 proof sovereign

    Yes I was referring to that, I hope that they don't release any more strike on the day sovereigns this year, then that would make the George's 5th more collectable but we will have to wait and see.

    I see that delivery for the BU version will be in 7-10 working days. Does this mean that they do intend to release a strike on the day version soon? And if so, will it be what we saw with George's 5th birthday sovereign? Should be fun to find out, or not.

    I think I will pass on this particular range and wait and see what comes out in the next few months; which is perfect for me because there are plenty of back issues that I need to catch up on.
