    Gold ( including silver & platinum ) is a commodity, no different than coffee beans and is known as "high risk" in the investment world.
    Only when you have a stable portfolio, ISAs and pension funds should you enter this market and if you do, try to keep you metals at no more than 20% of your other investments.
    As a hobby, buy a few sovereigns or other gold coins when you have the spare cash.
    When you get hold of your first sovereign for say £240, or tenth ounce Britannia for £100 and see how small the coin(s) is / are it you might start to wonder ....
    You might prefer to start with silver - but know where to buy to avoid the 20% VAT so read the 100's of comments on this forum.
    For the price of a full sovereign you can get hold of about 15 full ounce silver coins like Maples, Britannias, Eagles, Elephants etc.
    You get a lot more weight and larger coins in silver and as silver appears artificially low in price right now there is more potential upside.
    As a hobby, try both but ALWAYS do your homework before buying.

    @ThePaleKing
    You're being very fair and your offer to use BYB's excellent intermediary service is wise.
    That's a cheap piece of gold with little risk, I'd say.
    In the spirit of the forum however, I'll advise you that you'd get more from HGM today and the coin would only need to be sent once.

    Good luck with your sale although I do hope a forum member buys it and new relationships are developed.

    Another haul of silver - some nice condition vintage Libertad BU from 2002 and 2005, a tube of Oriental Border Britannias, more Kooks and Krugs, a Panda and some slabbed QBs, and a few more QB 1/4 gold BUs. Also trying to upgrade the quality of my Morgans - so I am pleased with this 1904 O Morgan.  Always looking for MS 70 candidates in that bunch (i found some ! ).  Others got the typical scratches on the QEII face...

    Congratulations on coin @JCRJM! The 1989 sovereign is an absolute stunner.
    In the meantime I received a coin half the face value but double the weight.
