Brilliant Uncirculated coins don't have a true frosted finish...
As per the attached video from the RM.
Thats correct as when i have had a 2014 proof sovereign next to one you can tell that its not as frosty but ngc must struggle to see the difference as they did the same with the 2017 sotd sovereign calling that a proof at first
I noticed these for sale on thelondoncoincompany.com and it said there was an "Issue Limit: 3,263 Worldwide", I'm not sure how many of those have the error but I thought that was the worst case scenario.
These coins peaked my interest as a newbie, I'm guessing the £2.5k and £3k they're up for sale for on those websites doesn't represent any value as I saw an auction price of £900.
How would you price those types of coins? Are they worth buying for squirreling away for 30 years time?
Thank you 😊 I’m sure you’ll get where you want to be in time- my advice is just take your time and focus, do your own research and seek help and advice here on the Forum- there’s lots of nice people who will impart sound advice and their own experiences.
Asking yourself what your exit strategy and plan long term is the most important starting point.
In terms of the 2002’s not purposely- nice Sovereigns and I did own the Half, sovereign and 2 Pound but flipped them (as well as other ‘special’ design Sovereigns, in favour of 2x Libertad sets I was fortunate enough to have being offered. I’ve just not got around to buying the 2002 back- plenty of time to do so- I wish the same could be said of backdating Libertad sets 🤨
