    Two days worth of receivage! I'm quite surprised in the amount of differences between the 2017 and 2018 coins.

    Bearing in mind there are big Sov collectors on this forum and i'm not one of them i'd say simply because they are the most recognised and easily traded coin in the UK with a low premium and a large collector base too.
    I'm collecting US graded gold, but I do i knowing full well it will be harder for me to sell and I would have to wait for the right buyer. But i'm a collector first, then a stacker.

    Could be done... looks like 1 seller in the UK has cornered the market at £5.15 delivered so they're making £3.15 taking into account postage/fees
    That is a lot of effort though packaging lots of different single parcels.

    metallica73 got a reaction from Jay2 in Is it unwise to uncard a sovereign?   
    Nothing wrong with taking it out of the card and putting it in the capsule. I wouldn't say it adds value but I guess on Ebay it would add a few quid due to authenticity... a bullion dealer isn't going to care.

    When i've ordered from APMEX there is no import or vat on investment gold and they use UPS. UPS UK ring you up and send you a form by email and then you just sign it and send it back and they'll then deliver it.
    Never ordered from MCM, so don't know who they use. Worst case scenario is you get stung 20% VAT and have to claim it back.

    Does anyone collect the non-precious metal 2 pound coins in the UK? If so, do you use a coin book? The annual or definitive sets released by the Royal Mint? Graded and slabbed versions?
    I've got a few now - the 2015 reintroduction of the Britannia portrait both in circulated condition and from the definitive coin set slabbed, the WWI aviation definitive coin set slabbed, and am very excited for the 200th anniversary of Mary Shelley's Modern Prometheus (Frankenstein!) coin this year. 
    I love the Kew Gardens 50 pence and the Sir Isaac Newton of the same denomination, but only have the latter slabbed by NGC.
    Photos below are mine and of my coins.

Objective criticism helps companies to improve. We are not trying to be awkward and do want to help, we are open again tomorrow (Tues 2 Jan) if you would like to give me a call or send me a DM and I will call you.  Wishing you all a Happy New Year.
