    I think i'll be a lucky man if i find a new year one for just 3% over spot. Considering i'm only looking to buy the one. Looks like i'll have to settle for 4.5% so far.

    15 oz mixed Bullion Coins and Bars as per photos.  These were all swapped for pre-1920 and 1947 coins with a dealer in Edinburgh. Weight and slide tested but feel free to carry out your own testing and if there are any issues, fire back at my cost.  
    Asking £225 posted UK Special Delivery.
    Thanks for looking.

    I've been stacking 1/10 Krugys for a while but I'm now dipping into half Sovs. I feel I'm going to be on full Sovs by march lol.  This is like a drug habit.  I just have the urge to buy gold lol.

    I'm a new stacker, I've been buying 1/10 Krugys but now I'm looking for half Sovs. Sadly can't afford larger purchases so suffering the premium but as said above, should make it back when selling.

    Good luck in your fractional gold stacking. I'm not buying or selling in the UK, so these are just some relevant, tangential thoughts. 
    When I jumped into fractional gold, I began with the 1/10 gold Eagles. But then I realized that they have a very high premium, around 15% usually. Acceptable if that's all I can find, but then I found the Mexican 5 peso (approximately 1/8 ounce), which typical can be had for about a 5% to 8% premium. So now that's my default impulse fractional buy. The 2 pesos (approximately 1/20 ounce) tend to have a higher premium. 
    In the sovereign category, I'll look at the pre-1933 half Eagles ($5 denomination), especially the pre-1908 Liberty head design. So far I've been able to find them for less than 6% premium. The quarter Eagles (half sovereign) tend to have a higher premium. 
    Main lesson is that the mid-sized fractions seem to be the best value.

    Half Sovereigns are a nice size, the one tenth ounce coins are very small but affordable. I will buy any Gold if the price is right and because  I Love Coins Me !!!!

    I have been shying from one ounce purchases in the beginning as well, and I think around quarter ounce trade coins, like the Sovereign (and a couple more for us continental guys) are the way to go. It is a nice way to begin with gold without overexerting oneself, and they are highly liquid. Sure the intrinsic gold price will be lower than what you paid at the moment, but you almost always can sell a little higher as well. Quarter ounce bullion coins are nice as well. I feel that it is a very handeable size. I am not sure about 1/10 or lower (some go down to 1/20 or 1/25 even), as the premium gets ridiculous then.

    Thanks for the advice, I saw his sovs for sale earlier when I was looking and was about to PM til I saw they had all gone 😔. I will definitely keep and eye out though thanks.

    Half sovs. Yes, there is a premium over the 1oz coin but it can be made back if you ever decide to sell.
    Definitely not 1/10 Proof Brits. These should all be offered to @Roy at a low percentage over spot. Box and COA appreciated but not essential.
    You just missed out on one of @shawy2510's bullion sales. Cheap gold, keep an eye on his posts 😉
