Both lovely coins I like that design, took me a while to notice the difference, was it a manufacturing fault or an early production type, which one is worth more, or is there no difference.

And finally why live in a dump like Tatooine, wretched hive of scum and villainy.

 

for those of us who have taken ''quite a while' and still cant see the difference... whats occuring here?

Someone start a thread about this matter as I I don’t have a clue

It was in reference to a post on the previous page of two slightly different Dragon & Phoenix coins.  The difference is in the ruffles at the back of the Phoenix head.  The question mark in my previous post was because I wasn’t sure if ‘ruffles’ was the correct word.

My first graded coin ever, plan to keep hold of this until next year, I bought it as I felt like spending money so I would rather spend it on something I can get my money back on than something I can't.

There is a difference in the finish if you look closely at one of them you will see in places that it has a proof like finish which came out in the end as a minting error by the Perth mint so that one demands a higher premium

I want to thank you for this post but I have been 'post whoring' my likes and thanks a lot this morning and it says I ran out :wub:

I did see slight differences in the finish but just put that down to the photo and slightly different angles.  The difference in the Phoenix head is rather more obvious - does that also make any difference to the premiums?

My coins arrived from the latest grading as well, thanks to @Numistacker

Generally very satisfied, some notes:

  • Once again I had a Details grade. Unlike the previous one, which had clear hairlines once I looked more carefully, this one didn't. I may post detailed pictures elsewhere trying to get some more expert opinions. ?
  • The Sovereign did as expected (low MS, bought as bullion).
  • From the remaining six silver coins, five have the highest grades in the census. Three of them (Austria, Germany and Switzerland) are the only ones! ?
  • Overall I believe I am getting better at picking them, with a minor glitch every time... ?
