Nice idea, though I opted for the pink one and it was only 26 :D

 

Check you get the presentation box, in the comments I read somewhere that some of the cheaper ones didn't come with it.

 Here is my 1959 Great Britain 1 Sov in MS64 "graded" by NGC. Would you sovereign experts please tell me if this is really from the pictures

IMO Definitely. The coin looks good and there are marks on the obverse that match with the picture on the NGC certification.

Thanks @sovereignsteve. I know also some people take the numbers of real NGC slabs and post them online and sell fake coins on eBay. I was lucky to get it at a what I think is a good deal, not great. That will be my last coin purchase for now as I need to save up for other things. Was the sovereign an actual denomination or has it always been "bullion"?

@sovereignsteve Is it a young head?

The sov had and still has a denomination of £1 and back in the day was used in day to day life not sure when people stopped using @sovereignsteve might know that one his knowledge is second to none with sov's

yes in the 19th century, and early 20th, a sovereign was a £1 coin in circulation. Although £1 coins won't have been used much in everyday transactions as it was a lot of money.

Not sure when it ceased to circulate, certainly by WW1 gold was increasingly difficult to get and banknotes were being used. The price of gold would have been an issue then as well, and the UK had to send a lot of it to the USA to pay war loans etc

No, it's the first QE2 effigy engraved by Mary Gillick. I suppose you could refer to it as a QE2 young head, maybe it will be so in years to come.

The young head refers to the first effigy of Victoria starting in 1838 and used until 1887
