  1. A bit of fun. For the next large TSF prize draw to advertise and bring awareness of the forum, which will be in around a month or two. Should we double the prize and have 2x 5oz silver bars up for grabs, 2 different winners each winning a 5oz silver bar. If you think we should then like this post. If this post gets 100+ likes we will give away 2x 5oz silver bars. (I have set this target deliberately low so that it is easily obtainable) If this post reaches 200+ likes, we will add a small bonus

  3. Recent acquisitions, thanks to all for the continued motivation and inspiration. Firstly, an incredibly stunning 2020 5 oz Silver The Three Graces Proof. The relief and quality of this now timeless design is amplified in this 5 oz mintage. And this year’s 2021 1/4 oz Gold Britannia Proof... And also, in the incredibly low mintage like last year, the 2021 1/4 oz Platinum Britannia Proof...

  5. And my 3rd purchase this week which complements my earlier purchase nicely was one I’ve wanted for a while. Picked it up in the @CoinsOfTheRealmAuctions. Shout out to @Clockpuncher and @Elements for alerting me to its availability. Definitely my new favourite coin in my collection and quite possibly the best sovereign ever. I think its only right I get the 2SOV to keep them company no?

  8. As promised, today I received my prize from @5huggy’s daft competition. Here it is, I think we all knew it would be minion related. So it arrived today and was left on the doorstep thanks to the postman and I was in!! I received this hilarious mug and these very fetching earrings. 😆

  9. Two lovely Maundy Sets and a part Set arrived today- more to follow this week. Maundy Money alongside the Sovereign are the only Milled British coins that have endured for the last 200 years or so and continue to be issued today; albeit the Sovereign has missed several years. Some interesting nuances with these year dates- the 1817 Pistrucci designed George III coin bears the date on the Obverse whereas, a standard for Mandy was established from 1822 in terms of size & weight. Interestingly, you can see on the 1822 3d coin, the Mint used the same punch they used on the Portrait of

  17. Couldn’t resist. The only double sovereign in my collection but had to fill the gap. Looks lovely side by side. 1/2s and 1/4s are a little too small for me so will stick with the hand I have ♠️❤️♦️♣️

  23. 1st of a few 2021 Britannia orders arrived this morning, the 2oz premium silver. This design seems to have divided opinion but I really like it and think it will prove to be a key coin in years to come. 550 minted which is pretty tiny for a silver coin. Off to grading this will go

  25. They finally arrived. My first batch of Una and the lion bars. Fantastic design for a bullion bar, hope it will become a huge series in the next years, can't wait for the 3G bars. And finally my 2 OZ 3G arrived. Small, but mine. I love days like today. I've watched for weeks people getting their coins and every day it was harder to wait.

    100 oz of the 1 oz Rectangle Dragon 2021. This design might become the most popular of the series so far imo. 1 oz gold version ordered as well.

  27. Silver 2 coin 2021 Britannia set, 1 oz standard proof and reverse proof. Nice packaging and presentation. Although there’s a low mintage of 700 in the reverse proof I think I prefer the standard proof. Quite a large mintage of 4680 but nice strike none the less

  28. Thanks @arshimo2012 for the 1980 Machin Proof Sovereign. Continuing to add to my Maundy collection, a nice 1831 Maundy Set and an 1888 3d. Just ‘need’ a 1953 Elizabeth Maundy Set to complete my Change of Portrait Type Set from 1817. You can see the Maundy Type Set I have collected so far here in Today I want to show.

  29. Finally the Eagle has landed or should I say the Rooster. A massive 1 kg Lunar Rooster. Just a really awesome beast of a coin. This is the end of a long on/off journey covering 3 years and completes the final piece of the whole series of plain silver 2005 Perth Mint Lunar Roosters. 1 kilo, 1/2 kilo, 10 oz, 5 oz, 2oz, 1 oz and 1/2 oz and and just over 2 kilos in weight. Time to start saving for the gold set now 😀

    Three 10oz silver Horses. I order all of these 10oz coins now from @BullionExchangesbecause they ship them in these monster box sheets. It really helps keep the capsules in pristine condition! 🙂

  34. And also, rounding out with some bullion 1 oz silver bars, three Una & the Lion 1 oz Silver Bar Minted, one placed in capsule and two left on OEM protective plastic. A bit disappointed in milking appearance that has already developed, even in packaging. But it is bullion silver and a quite nice design...

  37. Maundy Money Change of Portrait Type Set- well very nearly! All housed in their new home, encapsulated in Quadrum Capsules- if anyone has Maundy and wish to have a safe and secure method of storage/ display, these specially designed inners for Maundy can be bought here, for about a tenner for 10 inners & Quadrum capsules, delivered. Completing the Set has been a bit of a labour of love. It's almost complete but I still have to source the 1953 Maundy Set. The 1953 Set is a difficult one to find, the mintage being just over 1000. In the meantime I have substituted this Set with

    Many firsts today, thanks to @motorbikez! first graded coin first proof coin first 1oz silver QB Was really looking forward to this and it didnt let me down, it's beautiful in person! i think i may change my collection strategy to just PF70 proofs of QB, and spend the rest of the time stacking brtis and sovs... because of my obsession with perfect coins, its almost impossible to find flawless bullion versions of the QB - and had to return/resell many already - even when seller says they are "flawless"...

  48. My 2005 haul over the past week or so. My thanks to @Pete @BullionMan89 @Clockpuncher for the help in sourcing most of the items here. Top guys. 👍 No thanks to the useless Royal Mail who took 6 days to deliver 1st class post. 👎
