  1. Overpriced commemorative bullion imho.
  2. Thomas Crapper would be rolling over in his grave if he had heard about this.
  3. Isn't 2019 the 10th anniversary of the quarter sovereign? Maybe other mint's are jumping on cashing in on another anniversary.
  4. The same thing happened to me with the 2018 sapphire coronation sovereign; I ordered it, it went through and everything then about several hours later I get an e-mail from the RM informing me that it was oversold and they had to cancel my order. Very frustrating.
  5. I set my alarm in order to get up in time to get into the cue of the Royal Mint (I live in the U.S.) but to no avail. I knew it would sell out fast and apparently it did. Now the coin's price will instantly shoot up to 1000 pounds or more. I love these special sovereigns but they are difficult to collect as well as expensive.
  6. I am not sure how VAT works as far as receiving gold coins in the U.S. from foreign countries but I don't think I was charged anything like that on my last purchase from the Royal Mint. My last order from them was the 2019 matt finish sovereign and the 2019 proof silver Britannia and I just got charged the converted amount from British pounds to dollars and a "foreign exchange rate adjustment fee" according to my bank statement.
  7. Hello, I am relatively new to this forum and from ordering from the RM however a long time collector. I was wondering if someone could tell me at what time there locally (U.K. time) does the Royal Mint usually release their coins? Is it a consistent time like with the U.S. Mint they usually release them at 12:00 p.m. EST on a given day. Is it the same with the Royal Mint and if so what is that time? Thanks for any info you can share. p.s.- The reason I'm asking is because I want to purchase one of the matt finish Victoria sovereigns on May 24th.
  8. What type of capsule did it come in, the screw type or the newer push on?
  9. I am thinking of buying just as a new collector of sovereigns.
  10. 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.
  11. 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.
  12. Beautiful coin, I think I will have to seek one out.
  13. 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.
  14. 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.
  15. You are right sir, my eyes are not what they were in my youth. I will have to give that some thought.
