Prince Albert celebration sovereign!

another one ?!

hard to keep up .. 

A 'bit much' imvho, especially after all the quality issues with the Viccy SotD (still graded at 70 by NGC) and then the 5 Sov piece.

However for those with very deep pockets it could well become a very desirable 'set' amongst modern Sov collectors in the future...

(Don't see it myself so not for me, quite likely wrong as usual 🤣.)

The first 5 orders will include a lock of Alberts hair from an area of the body of your choice... Yes of course its cynical manipulation but hey its only money. My Victoria 200th would never be happy unless Albert was lying there by her side. Growing interest in SOTD and low mintage with specific design unlike the first years) mean this will sell out.

Perhaps there will be a John Brown onestruck for loyal servants?

In addition to the ones mentioned, there was a 2013 SOTD for the birth of Prince George (22nd July 2013) with a mintage of 2013.

The 2015 SOTD for the 2nd birthday of Prince George is quite distinctive.  I think it is the only BU sovereign that year to use the Jody Clark Queen's Head design - the Princess Charlotte SOTD and the regular bullion sovereigns for 2015 use the Ian Rank-Broadley design.  Therefore there are only 400 non-proof 2015 Jody Clark head sovereigns.

Regarding the 2017 Sapphire Accession and Platinum Wedding SOTD sovereigns, I thought the Sapphire Accession sovereigns had a normal reeded [milled] edge whereas the Platinum Wedding sovereign had a flatter, wider reeded edge (Coin News, July 2018, p.35), so it may be possible to differentiate between them.

Brilliant information thank you very much

My first reaction was "oh ffs.."

If this was guaranteed the last sotd matt finish, plain edge with a privy id buy it but they can't just keep watering things down like this

The more they make, the less special they are

 

I'm hoping the matt finish is a uniquely 2019 phenomenon.

anyone on here buying ? 

-like for yes 

-sad face for no 

I reckon these would be an instant sell out even with just the flippers (just mvho).

As Numi shows, this is quite a collection now, and there are way more than 600 odd serious modern Sov collectors in the world who will want/need this.

A matte finish, V or A cipher has no interest for me as no relation to the current monarch, and the quality so far has been poor from what we've seen on here, whatever NGC say.

It's very clever but very naughty of the Mint what they have done with the Mattes this year. You buy the first two (especially the Viccy) and then you have to get the third, it doesn't match into any other sets (other than the entire unique SotD issues, which is a huge financial undertaking just at sale price) like the Sapphire Coronation (for example) does. It'd be nice to be a collector and not feel like the Mint are trying to pull your pants down every few months, and to be honest I'm surprised there hasn't been a bit of an outcry about this, and more reaction like @Kman's.

I've had it myself recently with the second pair of Paddingtons which sold out within a day - I have the first two, but I can't just lay out £1600 for that amount of gold with a few days' notice, so I missed out (OK I appreciate that perhaps some on here - and hundreds of folk elsewhere - can, and good luck to them). At least with that one though they let you order the second along with the first. There are going to be a lot of frenzied collectors who have the Viccy and now 'need' this. It's absolute pish taking from the Mint imvho and I am more and more inclined to stick with what I've got and buy very little else in the future.

I'm going to give this one a miss as there's no guarantee they aren't going to make more with the only difference each time being the privy

I may change my mind before release, but currently it's an annoyed no from me

....

Canny flippers are going to be all over this one making easy money on the very quick sell, well before any more come out next year...not my style (probably why I can't afford all these coins 🤣), but horses for courses, I don't have a problem with them, and of course it's silly not to see the attraction of buy one get one (almost) free, but you have to have the readies. I now however have a growing problem with the Mint, and I've been a loyal customer who supported many releases in good faith and now feel tricked, and not just once.

They can stuff this year's Snowman/Snowdog, for example, where the sun don't shine. I'm sure it'll be pumped and dumped as usual. Long-term a winner but the initial feeding frenzy and all that jazz is not for me.
