  3. I always keep my eye on Auction sales looking out for nice Sovereigns, especially the local ones. Wouldn't it be great to be able to judge the quality of a coin by the images they provide. The problem is generally (about 99% of the time) they are awful. As auctions are creaming around 35% of a sale amount, you'd think they could invest £50 and sort out the poor image quality, wouldn't you? I saw a few nice sets at an auction house (about 40 mins away) made the journey and all dogs of coins... Of course you couldn't tell this from the bad images.. Anyone else feeling frustrated by this...
  4. The sovereigns from Harrington & Byrne are the same weight as any sovereign from were ever. First a sovereign from H&B, second 1895 sovereign. It looks OK to me. Are we looking for a fault as the price is so low??? I HAVE JUST PUT A POLL UP ASKING Would you buy sovereigns from Harrington & Byrne. 20/04.
  5. I’m trying to obtain the 1989 Gold Proof three-coin-set Sovereign. I’ve been offered the price of almost £3000 for this set from a very reputable firm. Am I getting ripped off? It comes with original certificate and the original case. What are the grades normally like when buying historic coins for reputable firms like Royal Mint, etc.? Where else should I look for to buy this coin? Thanks!
  6. Hi. I’m trying to buy the 2017 gold proof Piedfort sovereign. I can get one for £1595 on Is it too expansive? They say it’s brand new from the Royal Mint two years ago. Is Chards a reputable firm? I’ve never heard of them and I don’t know if I should buy the coin from them. Where else can I buy this coin? Also, how likely is this coin going to be sought after in the future? As some of you might know, I am trying to decide whether to buy the 1989 gold proof 3 coin set sovereign for about £3000 from a very reputable firm (original case & COA) or the 2017 Piedfort from Chards. Which one should I go for? Thanks!
  7. G'day all, So, as soon as i saw the double sovereign below sell at that price,i regretted instantly. lesson learnt, always bid on the ones you want. always. Secondly, what do you think of the bids on this £5 version below? 😱
  8. Hi everyone, Up until now I have been buying all my numismatics and bullion directly from APMEX. Yesterday I was surfing ebay and found a lovely 2 Sovereign 1983 coin apparently graded by NGC at PF69. I want to hit the button but I've heard of a lot of fakes on ebay. Is it safe or will I get a penny slug instead of a Sovereign?
  9. I am very new to PMs and started by going for sheer weight, bought a few Oz's, then went for 1/4oz QBs and slowly started edging towards more collectible coins. I'm now getting "urges" to start grabbing proof sovereigns but feel like I'm drifting from my original plan, which is ultimately stack weight but in an easy to liquidate manner. Think I prefer 1/4oz coins or sovereigns purely because they seem to be more affordable for people and therefore can be easier to liquidate. Think I might diversify and have my main bulk as bullion coins e.g Britannia's/Sovs and maybe along the way grab some more numismatic proofs if I have the expendable funds for it. I'm sure this topic has been covered in other threads but I'm skiving at work, so decided to start a new discussion. Interestedto hear other people's opinions and their own personal strategies.
  10. There has been a few comments on my first post sovereigns from Harrington & Byrne. 17/04. Thats why Iv put this poll up. Happy voting Thanks ☺️

  12. Hello ! New member here, starting to collect Pre-Victorian Sovereigns. Would be grateful if someone can tell me the tentative grade of the coin below. Thanks in advance. Leprechaun
  13. Hello fellow SilverForum members. I have just uploaded video No 7 to my new YouTube Channel showing an unboxing of sovereigns & gold Pandas just back from conservation and grading. Please can you take a look, like comment and hopefully subscribe. Here is the link to my channel. Thanks for looking. Coin Struck
  14. What I don't understand is that the prices for modern sovereigns seem to have no relation to published mintages. In my Coin Yearbook for 2018, the mintages for 2013 (BU Bullion) and 2016 (BU bullion) are 2,695 and 1,500 respectively. (Both figures being substantially lower than the proof mintages for the same years). So by any measure these BU bullion sovereigns are really quite rare. However, these low mintages are not reflected in the price asked by dealers and on EBAY. Do collectors not realise that these are scarce coins, or are the published mintages suspect? Another puzzle over pricing is the very high price asked by a well known postal supplier of sovereigns for a 1968 sovereign (mintage in excess of 4 million). Is this year really difficult to find?
  15. Hello fellow SilverForum members. I recently uploaded my first YouTube video called "Coin Struck`s First Video". It's an introduction to what I love to collect - sovereigns, Chinese Pandas and Perth Mint coins. Please take a look and let me know what you think. Also yesterday I uploaded video 2 which is about a coin fair held last weekend in Perth in Western Australia. Thanks for reading. Coin Struck 2019-02-10_FIX.mp4
  16. We're paying intrinsic for sovereigns - that's right 100% for bullion sovereigns. You can see the live buying price here
  17. Hmm, here's an interesting conundrum. We're in the process of adding an unusual sovereign on to the website - and we have quite a few opinions in the office as to whether it is 3 over 2, a 3 over 8 or is it a rotated 2 under the 3? Or something else? We'd be interested in your thoughts - the fourth photo is a macro of the overdate.
  18. My proof full sovereign collection from 1979-2018 complete. A great coin to collect and to put together as a collection
  19. Been collecting a year now , thought I would just say hi and get to know everyone. Saw the forum on numistacker and backyard bullions YouTube videos so here I am.
  20. Hi all Just bought my first set of sovereigns from Gold and Silver NI and thought I'd give them a recommendation In my opinion its the best and cheapest place to buy sovereigns or even any bullion gold and silver, I bought 10 Georges and 1 random sovereign, the Georges where 190 each and the random was 188.50 (turned out to be pre decimal Elizabeth) plus 10 pounds shipping and they arrived within 24 hours, absolutely chuffed! I'm writing this especially because when I was researching the company I couldn't find any reviews or recommendations on the web so I was naturally suspicious to being ripped off, in the end I just went for it The difference is with Gold and Silver NI is that its a single investor that runs it and is doing it to increase his buying power rather than for profit, at the same time providing other investors with gold and silver at low premiums So what you have to do is wait for the spot price to be low or just check atkinsons for a good price, and then email this guy for a quote for what you want, when he replies you transfer the money to him and he then puts the same order in himself to his supplier to replenish his own stock. this is the website'> What's also great is that he sells for his buy price so it doesn't matter if you buy 1 or 20, its the same price per coin based on spot at that time Anyway hope this makes sense and is a help to anyone who is looking to purchase gold sovereigns I'll also post a picture of the sovs I bought if I can
