Modern Sovereign Prices versus mintages

Recommended Posts

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?
