  1. Received this a couple of weeks ago but thought I’d hold it back for Jubilee weekend. The 2oz Gold Queens Beast Completer in PF70. A mintage of only 100. What. A. Coin!!! The longest reigning monarch surrounded and protected by the countries beasts. I don’t think there is a better original modern coin design that has been produced by the Royal Mint during Queen Elizabeth’s reign. For me it sits alongside the Una and the Lion, Three Graces, Rocking Horse Crown and 2014 Britannia as stand out designs. Amongst modern coin engravers Jody Clark has created some designs that will be revered for many years to come. The jewel in the crown for my modern coin collection for sure

  2. Today I received... Well, ok, they didn't all show up today, they've been assembled over a six month period. But the last one DID just show up this week, so I'm posting anyways. Here's a nice mini-collection of Romanian gold pieces in terrific condition. Eastern European gold coinage can be tough to collect, with its unfortunate combination of low mintages and war/revolution/political unrest. The coins: 1. 1883 20 Lei - LMU standard 0.1867AGW - Minted in Bucharest, 185,290 pieces. King Carol I on the obverse, crowned and draped coat of arms on the reverse. Edge lettering that reads "PATRIA*SI DREPTUL*MEU" (Homeland And My Right). 2. 1890 20 Lei - LMU standard 0.1867AGW - Minted in Bucharest, 196,000 pieces. King Carol I on the obverse, crowned and draped coat of arms on the reverse. Edge lettering that reads "PATRIA*SI DREPTUL*MEU" (Homeland And My Right). 3. 1906 circulating commemorative 20 Lei - LMU standard 0.1867AGW - Minted in Brussels, Belgium, 15,000 pieces. Obverse and reverse both portraits of King Carol I. Milled edge. 4. 1944 Ardealul Nostru medallion, a commemorative issued to mark the liberation of areas of northern Transylvania that were annexed by Hungary in 1940 with the support of Nazi Germany. Nominally assigned a value of 20 Lei, although not to LMU standards - it mirrors the same size/fineness/weight of the debased 100 Franc - 21mm, 6.55g, 0.1895AGW. Obverse depicts overlapped busts of Michael the Brave, King Ferdinand, and King Michael. Reverse is a crowned eagle surrounded by the coats of arms of the annexed Transylvanian counties. Edge lettering that reads "NIHIL SINE DEO" (Nothing Without God). Minted in Vienna, 1,000,000 pieces, though its anyone's guess how many survived the end of WWII and all that came after in this part of the world. Many thanks to @DuncanWylieWilson for this piece that completes my little Romanian mini-collection. Off to deep storage for my ungrateful heirs to one day auction off 😂😂😂

  3. Had to celebrate my first 1oz gold coin and first TSF purchase as well. Stunning, glad I went for it and @lst65 was superb to deal with!

  4. My first double sovereign! I got it because of this year’s design, and I really like the size. Easier to see the design than a sovereign, and not as expensive as the 5 sovereign.

  5. I had to drop some new items off at safe deposit box yesterday, so took my camera along to finally see my gold stack together - viewing room table wasn't big enough to get everything into one shot For someone who could never hold onto money in his 20s I think Ive done OK

    ...a damn good looking coin, considering it's 261 years old. I don't think I will see another one in this condition for a long time, if ever again....this is a keeper. https://en.numista.com/catalogue/pieces17041.html Thanks @DuncanWylieWilson

    Today I Received.....

    well this is the big one for me, some of you may remember I enquired about a chess set and @BackyardBulliontook care of me, this morning I received my 1st set of pawns and the chess board with storage underneath and I can't tell you how happy I am with the package, you hope it will be great, you see the pictures of previous sets and are excited but just wow!!! 1st thing is the quality of the board and @BackyardBulliondad deserves an incredible amount of praise, its stunning even after I went a wee bit extra and enquired about storage and he nailed it, next the size, its incredible and totally matches the pieces and is really heavy!! the pawns are superb and have felt bottom to save scratching the board which was a nice touch and now I'm sure if anyone has read this far of me waffling the pictures (oh forgot each piece comes in its individual pouch!) and everything was superbly well packed.

  13. Thanks to @modofantasma for letting me know this little beauty had popped up on a certain dealers site (no prizes for guessing which one it might have been with the 2 FOC brits accompanying it 😉) Been after this first issue 2016 Gold Standard for some time now. Love these coins! The coin is in near as damn it perfect condition too! Any marks you see are on my airtite cap. That's all 4 bullion releases tucked up in my stack.....2016, 2018, 2019 & 2020. Shame the mint missed out 2017 🤷🏻‍♂️

    Finally received my set back from NGC. The 2016 James Butler Effigy Five Coin Sovereign Set grade P(er)F(ect)70 with the portrait facing the front. The aesthetics of the portrait divides opinion but with only 525 sets ever made of an effigy that is only used in 2016 on a sovereign of the longest reigning UK monarch, as time goes on it’ll be a sought after set. Definitely a keeper for me

  16. What better way to celebrate the queens jubilee than picking up some 2022 sovereigns (my first load) and also some other dates. Will be off to the safe deposit box this weekend and will post some pictures in the today I visited thread. I need to do a bit of a count up as lost track of how many sovereigns i have!

  18. Australian Refugees Find New Home Many thanks to @arshimo2012 for the 2021 1/4oz gold proof anniversary Nuggets. With a mintage of just 300 these look like a pretty decent investment...especially at a smidge over spot. I must also extend my thanks to rum-runner @jultorsk for smuggling in this year's silver Koala and, more importantly, the latest proof and frostie RAM roos - the 66th and 67th latest members of this ongoing (complete) collection.

    Two - Platinum Jubilee £5 gold crowns only issued in the "2022 annual set" with the Jodie Clark portrait Mintage of just 100 and both in PF70. Beautiful weighty pieces in hand "honi soit qui mal y pense" spoken by the medieval ruling class in England, meaning "shamed be whoever thinks ill of it", usually translated as "shame on anyone who thinks evil of it" It is the motto of the British chivalric Order of the Garter, the highest of all British knighthoods Hopefully will be an in demand coin in years to come one for the retirement pot

  28. Dont really venture out of the buy and sell page much and i have never posted in here, think i get over whelmed with how big the forum actually is 😅🤣. Anyway i received a loverly message from a member about a week ago, wanting to give back as i was their 1st feedback and regularly like posts. The message also offered me an at cost (with evidence) really good buy of something i had wanted for a while. I explained how this was a really nice gesture but i was saving to have time off with the new edition in the days to come and wouldnt sell the item to make a profit as it wouldnt sit right being a gesture so i kindly declined. I asked if they really felt they needed to give back just give me free p+p on a sale at some point in the future. I was pushed for my address as they wanted to send a small token for the new addition to the family. Got home today to a 1/25th gold coin and 1/10 silver coin to start off the stack 😲. Dont know if they would have wanted to be named and shamed so i wont but if i could shake their freakishly large hands i would ☺ This place is amazing and if someone taught me how to add gifs and memes to a message i will definitely make a more conscious effort to visit more parts of the site and chat to more of you after the stacker gets here 🤘

  29. Q: When you can combine two things that you love, should you? A: Yes - especially if it's art and PMs. 2Oz Ultra-high relief silver coin and, for the life of me, I just can't take a picture that really helps this one stand out as much as it does. It has probably the cleanest detail lines I've ever seen on a coin. Truly, The Polish Mint is astounding for quality. There's so many layers of things going on that it is now my favourite coin. You can just see the cats either side of Freyja in this one, but they pop out at other angles. One day, I hope to have some of my art made into coins like this - gotta have a dream somewhere...! Thanks to@PowerCoin

  30. Hi dear forum members, After selling my first lot of sovereigns and the Queen Beasts and Lunar sets, here you have the remains of my gold stack to be sold before I move overseas. That means that this June is the last month I will be able to sell them in the UK. The last time I ended selling some dozens but it was too time consuming, because people asked detailed pictures of all the coins for a year in order to pick the "best" and, taking into account that they are used bullion coins, the time invested for both parts was not worth it. Most of the coins are in good and acceptable condition (slightly weared and with small shallow scratches). If some coin is specially in poor condition (very weared or some deep scratch) I will send detailed pictures to ask confirmation *before* posting , but as a general rule consider that you are buying "gold full Sovereigns in used bullion condition", and just take the oportunity to pick a year as a complimentary gesture. If I have several coins of the same asked year, I will pick up the "best one" available, so first ones will get the best ones. In order to speed up the sale I'm offering discounts according to the amount of coins bought, being the default price for a single sovereign, and offering discounts in the individual price for 2, 3, 4 and more than 5 coins. All the prices are final and with insured posted included (if you are in the UK). Prices: 360 GBP (updated @June 2nd) The prices will be updated according to the spot price. Discounts: 1 sov = +£0 2 sovs = -£5 each sov 3 sovs = -£8 each sov 4 sovs = -£10 each sov 5+ sovs = -£15 each sov Payment: Bank transfer Shipping: Preferably UK postage (but open to hear higher offers from overseas) by Royal Mail Special Delivery insured Any questions, please feel free to contact me. -------------------------------------------------------------- Available years (same order as the pictures): Victoria 1871 - 1876 - 1881 - 1882 - 1885 - 1886 1891 - 1892 - 1895 - 1895 - 1895 - 1896 1899 - 1900 - 1900 - 1901 Edward 1902 - 1903 - 1904 - 1904 1904 - 1904 - 1907 1908 - 1908 - 1909 George 1911 - 1911 - 1912 - 1912 - 1912 1912 - 1915 - 1915 - 1917 - 1920 1925 - 1928 - 1928 - 1931 Elizabeth 1958 - 1958 - 1958 - 1958 - 1958 1958 - 1958 - 1958 - 1958 - 1958 1963 - 1963 - 1965 - 1965 - 1966 1966 - 1966 - 1966 - 1966 - 1966 - 1966 Elizabeth 1967 - 1968 - 1968 - 2011 2015 - 2015 - 2015 - 2015 - 2015 2016 - 2016 - 2016 - 2016 - 2016 2016 - 2016

  31. QB,s complete set. 10 x Gold Proof Coins in Original Mahogany presentation boxes with COA. All Coins are ungraded but have never left their capsules and are in mint condition. As far as I know this is the only set on offer worldwide!. Individual coins maybe acquired for a lot less but the full Set (at the most 380) is very very scarce/rare and a must have for collectors. I,m asking for nothing less than £45000 with PayPal or Bank transfer. I will cover the cost of insurance and courier service from Germany. More photos if required. Stay Safe y,all Howie Expat living in Hamelin Germany.

  32. Sterling Silver Pistrucci Key Tray A splendid auction pick-up at spot, this 2007 Royal Mint Sterling silver salver weighs in at a respectable 498g and was one of a limited edition of 1,000. Complete with a splendid full set of six hallmarks it can be used for keys, small change, boiled sweets, spare screws or even serve as a water bowl for a small dog. I shall be using mine as a jelly mould.
