  1. Hurray! A 2022 Queen Elizabeth II memorial proof sovereign……..looks good at first inspection the tiniest bit of flake next to the I in FID but I can easily sort it. Will have a closer look at it when n better light……. Gorgeous looking sovereign, can’t wait to get my hands on the £5 sov’s.

  2. Although a sovereign man at heart, this coin is incredible and I think I would call it my best for 2022. The silky satin toning, in very deep blues and purples at the rim of the coin grading across the fields to the soft greys, pinks and gold tinge of the cameo’s, particularly on the Victoria side are very satisfying Happy New Year everyone.

  3. Seriously guy's and girls I'm getting to the point of breaking,the voice in my head is screaming at Me ( ok maybe voices 😆) One of us whom we have nearly all dealt with at some point or another has be financially shafted to the tune of £700 and hasn't received any recourse as of yet ( highly unlikely now tbh ) but I've witnessed some very strange "coincidences" lately that have set the alarm bells of in my head. These alarms are getting louder and louder by the day, unfortunately legally there's very little anyone can do to help. This message is to simply warn all forum members to be very careful when making purchases, I won't name names as its unfair to all parties involved, but I will ask that hopefully right thing gets done, hopefully the geniune victim gets made whole again. If the person that absconded for whatever reason (mental health /tragedy/financial struggle/whatever ) ever manages to read this message, please do the right thing. You're better than this, at least I thought so from our brief conversations!! It's not too late, do it through me or send the money by post if you have to. I've dealt with you and you had the opportunity to nail me for a substantial amount (for which I'm grateful you didn't) but this tells me there's more to the story? Maybe just maybe you feel it's better to ignore the issue and eventually it will go away? It won't, this will stain your character for the rest of your life, no future can be built on dishonesty. Anyway rant/plea over and hopefully it reaches the right person, and if if does... remember its never too late to make amends!!

  6. On the memorial band waggon. Just a full and a half for me. I wasn't feeling them at first but they have won me over now. Definitely better in hand 😍

  7. Received today from @BullionMan89, a PF69 1oz Gold Nugget. What I should say is the PF69 1oz Gold Nugget, as there are no others, nor are there any PF70's (NGC). So this is currently the best NGC graded coin of its type. That blows my mind.

    Very happy with the King's arrival in the colonies! Only took 2 weeks! Can be 4-6 weeks sometimes. Is the packaging slightly excessive? 5 boxes, like opening a Russian doll, or 'pass the parcel'!

  9. 2017 Ugly Duckling Until a recent and timely heads-up by@James32, I had never seen a Perth Mint Gold Swan on TSF. A rare bird indeed, this inaugural cygnine ozzer was limited to a total mintage of just 5,000. At spot+2% it seemed too good an opportunity to pass up as well as being a splendidly handsome piece. Thanks to the highly recommended@HB1for this new entrant to my own personal "Maginificent 7".

  14. Lovely high grade Gold, Silver & Bronze South Africa Sets, which include several NGC top population coins. Well worth the wait given Customs delays and hold ups UK side due to postal strikes. All from the late October Swiss Sincona auction. Lovely Gold Proof Gillick & George VI portraits.

  21. Hi there, I have been making and selling these locally for the past few months. As I have purchased the Silver from the forum to make these, I thought it would be only right to put one up on here for sale. Ideal for a wrist size 7.25 inches up. Adjustable means that it can be opened enough to go around wrist, then squeeze around the wrist to a snug fit. 7.25 inches long. Weight 92.5g Purity .999 fine silver Black velvet bracelet box included Hallmarked at the Edinburgh Assay Office Price £300 includes special delivery Payment via PayPal or BT Thanks for looking

  22. It arrived! £700 up front, wait two months, worry about postal strikes, already had a parcel go AWOL - but it arrived this morning and it is jaw droppingy pretty. Worth noting though that the capsule was a little loose, and the RM have obviously decided that the little black pads that came with the previous Sov to avoid such issues are no longer required! Also a fair amount of detritus inside the capsule, but all in all delighted, coin looks good.

  24. Here's a few of my purchases for 2022: Stephen (1135-1154) 'Watford' Cross Moline - Penny. Stunning portrait. Henry II (1154-1189) 'Tealby' Cross Crosslets - Penny. John (1199-1216) Short Cross Penny. Henry IV (1399-1413) Half Groat - clipped. I can't claim for the quality of the photos as they are the seller's, which are way better than mine, since mine always look awful. As you can see I'm going for one of each monarch - a foolhardy task really. It's not so much about going for rare or most valuable, but going for the clearest and strongest portrait I can get with the money I've got. I keep getting waylaid though as I keep purchasing Stephen pennies.

    Not sure this counts as a precious metal but fancied something different as an investment so thought I would share Fancy yellow 1ct brilliant cut pear diamond GIA certified Anyone else into Gia certified stones ? Interesting fact for every 1ct of yellow diamonds, 16,000ct of white diamonds are mined rare in this size and grade
