  1. 1860 Bronze collection complete, all in nice condition.
  2. edit: should have measured first and no wonder i got for “spot”... its a farthing so pretty worthless, not going to numistacker 😆
  3. Love this design, 1oz / £2 2001 Silver Brit
  4. Once in hand, as a set i honestly think they will look great. The details around the DB5 are pretty special. You need to be a bond fan (or aston fan) though I guess, otherwise you need to find a bond fan to sell to and there are a few of them 👍
  5. Fair enough, reassuring to hear - maybe im being unfair and the good ones don't get traded so ive only seen the bad ones. Hope I'm lucky too then as i’ve just taken a 5oz silver, think it’ll display well alongside the gold set.
  6. Ive gone for the 1oz gold 3 coin set for this reason and ‘better value’ 🤕 mintage wise imo at 350. 2oz makes a very expensive set and still at 250. I like the silver but i cant bring myself to buy Royal Mint silver, the milk spotting breaks my heart when you see some of the beautiful 2014 Britannia's and even some of una’s now, spoiled... as single coins i, controversially it seems, think they are ok, i really like them as the set though with the running “007” and hope the display case is well done... 🤞
  7. I have repatriated this 15th century treasure back to the UK from a superb US seller. The photos don’t do it any justice, its absolutely stunning and I’m very pleased! For those interested, it is an Edward IV Gold Ryal or also called Rose Noble only minted between 1464 and 1470 and the year in that period identifiable by the mint mark in the legend, which on mine is a little difficult to ID but its a Long Cross Fitchée, if in any doubt (see the close up) there were no other crosses used in the period they were minted. This mark puts it as minted between 1469-1470, making it even rarer, only just before Henry VI was restored to the throne. On edwards second reign the mint started producing Angles which are entirely different design. The coin was minted in London, identifiable as no letter in the waves beneath the rose / kings vessel. 7.61grams of gold and approximately 35mm in diameter. Side note: The coin was also imitated on the continent in the mint of Gorinchem for around 100yrs after this date (and also thought during Edwards exile in Belgium), these are often referred to as a “Flemish Ryal”. Identifiable if put alongside each an original, one difference being the continental copy is often slightly larger in diameter. NB, if anyone is wondering what the lump of dirty metal is in some of the photos, its an original brass coin weight for the Ryal that I was able to pick up from someone that had found it in the Thames mud. It was only a few pounds but I though makes a nice collection. hope you like as much as me 😁
  8. Anyone followed it? Looks like they’re nearly through the auction and some good deals been had.
  9. A couple of £5 Platinum proof 3oz Piedforts on ebay at the moment a little (relatively speaking) over spot if anyone interested, just thought id share here as there isn't a general PM opportunities thread.
  10. This 1859 Full and half sov, put together as a set ... very happy 😊
  11. Just took receipt of the 1/4 oz Gold and the three 1/4oz Plat and they look stunning 😄 not had a chance to have a close look yet or photos etc. Nice touch, the gold and one of the platinums has the same COA number and I also have the next one in the sequence for the plat. Think I might send one Platinum back but will wait until I've inspected.
  12. They’ve just updated the website, opens at 9am if anyone interested
  13. Hi all, new to the forum and reasonably new to coins. I took the decision at the beginning of the year to diversify my investment portfolio into coins that I really like. I got sucked in a bit with the brexit coins frenzy (and broke my first rule of picking ones I really like, but I do have a small collection of sovereigns and it was a good edition to that, the 50p seemed an obvious if not expensive edition)... however, I really like the new Britannia and had been waiting for it and have gone for: 3 x 1/4oz Platinum (The mintage seemed so low and it seemed a good price). 1 gold 1/4oz .... and the 5oz Gold 😬 I mused over getting sets and smaller coins but I just think the coin will be amazing in a 50mm dia thats me spent up for now...
