  1. Is the idea then to buy at auction and then get NGC to grade the coin and therefore verify it is real? Is that what most are doing?
  2. I've not used auctions before, what's the chance of a fake? I presume they check the coins or do they not care?
  3. Yes, I'm quite keen on a 1918 C but at the right price.
  4. That's correct, he holds a postion in Barrick and increased a physical gold allotment too, so I suppose the assumption might be a suspension of gold trading. I'm not quite sure what to make of this news either. edit:grammar
  5. Appreciate the input, do they look like fakes to you?
  6. Article here through the waybackmachine https://web.archive.org/web/20200521182927/https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2020-05-20/odey-says-governments-may-make-private-gold-ownership-illegal What do you think?
  7. I was just browsing eBay and I found two sovereigns, can anyone provide their analysis on the quality of the coin or if they are priced right? Hard for me to tell. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Rare-1918-Canada-George-V-7-98-g-AGW-7-32-g-gold-Sovereign/293566069875?hash=item4459e6bc73:g:BdUAAOSwYFRdhg-I https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/1918-Gold-Sovereign-Ottawa-Canada-Mint/392783212805?hash=item5b73b43105:g:U4AAAOSwvmteQByH Cheers
  8. I had to Google Tristan da Cunha, what a fascinating place and a lovely set of coins too.
  9. If I ever sell, I'll be sure to add international shipping and other forms of payment.
  10. This is quite annoying, wish they got rid of it or just get a VPS or dedi that can cope.
  11. Zerohedge covered this really well and I recommended reading the pieces. One fact that stood out was the German central bank was asked to confirm the repatriation, which they did, but were then unable to confirm if the gold bars they got back were the same as the ones first deposited. The German central bank was also not able to recount the serial numbers of the original bars. Instead the bars they recieved were just denominated as no. 1, no. 2, and so forth. Also, the total number of bars were not the same, so the sizes must have been different. So, there is at least suspicion on the CB level that bars are not fully segregated and are just in a pool. Interesting given the the trouble they go to serialise and stamp names on the bars only to have Fort Knox or the Kentucky Gold Reserve to just ignore it.
  12. I can relate to having terrible neighbours. Mine are constantly having barbqueues even if it's raining. My garden and kitchen constantly stinks of burgers and gilled chicken. Their kids are realy noisy too and for the last 8 weeks have had to wear ear defenders just to get some work done in the home office.
  13. This looks like a 1817 or 1818 proof George III that's around 25K? I think this might be the exception as it was the first 'modern' sovereign.
  14. Are you able to give an example? Added 0 minutes later... The years with unique designs are a safe bet do you think?
