Leaving the EU - SOTD Sovereign

Recommended Posts

To get this thread back on track (sorry for the football interlude), I contacted the RM today to complain about the condition of the Una and the Lion Silver I received and asked for details  about the SOTD Sovereign:

Its a Sovereign, and definitely not a Piedfort, its of Matte finish with the Portcullis Mint Mark and its £800

Crazy. It will be interesting to see how it actually sells tomorrow morning. I shall enjoy the show from the sidelines

Where does it say £800? I can't even find the page for it on the RM website. Anyone have a link?

So it's a normal sovereign with a portcullis mark for £800 . Not good value for money 

It actually makes the gold 50p better value... shame the design is just terrible.

Just now, Empire said:

Thanks. Wow, like others have said £500 quid extra for basically a privvy mark. Interesting...

Is that mintage considered low, or no?

For a strike on the day not really, most of the modern ones are more around the 650 mintage mark, with the 2017 SOTD 200th anniversary being 1817 i think due to the year significance. so 1500 is pretty high for recent standards.

Does anyone know what is going to be in the two coin set?

1973 proof perhaps?

I did wonder......do you think it may be similar to the 2019 Kew coins? They would have JC's fifth portrait and be dated 2020?

So you will be paying 30 for two cupro coins in a posh box. Bit like the Indian Sov they are currently flogging for 400 quid. Nah. Thanks, but no thanks. Zero interest in this. I will be asleep at midnight dreaming of a world where ceramic pigs full of spot price sovereigns live in peace alongside their human masters.

I presume that photo is to scale and that makes the price worth while... result.

So another matt finish... again.  A nice DPL finish is much nicer and especially as they cant do matt finishes to save their lives.
