    2014 India Sovereign

    Today I bought.....

    A 2014 India Sovereign graded MS68 DPL by NGC. Grading makes people mental. You’re very lucky if you can pick these up raw on eBay for less than £300 and yet, I only paid £252 shipped for this, £17.50 less than I sold a bullion 1959 Sovereign for 10 mins earlier. The lesson is crack open all those modern 68’s and under before selling.

    Pricing Gold Britannia's for sale

    You also need to bear in mind that many on here (myself included) like to buy gold with at least the potential to be graded. Without being rude, those coins probably don’t fall into that category.

    Sovereign or Quarter Britannia?

    I like a bit of both and both are easy to sell in the U.K.

    Mr. Jeremy Fisher in a black box, purchased for 50% of the issue price - let’s hope my snowmen don’t go the same way.

    withdrawn 1oz Gold Britannia bar REDUCED

    It’s mainly because everybody on here (myself included) is as tight as a crabs chuff and will only pay bargain basement prices for anything.

    NGC Grading Submissions Open

    I think I got the wrong end of the stick - is it just the conservation costs that are changing? Can modern gold still be submitted (without conservation) in the modern section at a cost of $17?

    NGC Grading Submissions Open

    I think they may have shot themselves in the foot if that turns out to be the case - with the shipping and other peripheral costs you'll be looking at £45 - £50 per coin, maybe £60 if you want conservation. I'm not sure I could justify that for my 1/4 oz modern gold coins. 🙁 Let's hope it's not the case.

    You're missing all of the proofs - which is good news for your wallet!😊

    Bullion Britannia Prices Going Up ?

    Yes, remember it well. Still one of the finest pick ups of all time - I was fortunate to get in early, before they applied limits for individual buyers. I bought just shy of 100 coins in total at £19 each, including £500 worth of my wife’s money - I assured her it was the nearest to a sure thing you could get. Thankfully turned out that way.
