Harrington & Byrne sovereigns arrived today. A couple actually feel thinner on the edge than previous sovereigns I have, but the weight ‘feels’ good. I need to get a digital scale.
Strange they sell these sovereigns so cheaply, and add all this fancy packaging which obviously adds cost. I don’t understand H&B: selling sovereigns slightly below spot, only 3 per household, all this unnecessary packaging, the weird sales call, no email on order dispatch etc. A strange bunch. Much preferred the process with Bleyer but maybe not the price 😄
Also a small order from STG mainly to get me up to date with the Queens Beasts series. I dare say that’s me for a while or the wife will go crazy.
Just bought five of the new Perth Mint 1oz silver Dragaon & Dragon billion coins (mintage 50,000). This is the third of this type of Perth Mint coin the first being the "Phoenix & Dragon", the second the "Tiger & Dragon" and now the "Dragon & Dragon". Not sure what they will do for the forth coin, perhaps an Australian theme - Emu & Dragon or Koala & Dragon??
Also bought the second of their Birds of Paradice 1oz solver bullion coin.
Last week ..but just got one into a deep capsule today: a pile of silver BU Yales.
Also a gold 1/4 Yale ....sadly got a tiny visible mark on the Queen’s neck, so this will not be going for grading. Yale side is magnificent.
