  1. I like the idea of this series and that german site has a good range of coins. Handy for me
  2. Look on the una bar thread from a couple of weeks ago, there was a polish site selling them that I recall someone posting.
  3. If you don't mind to pay the hefty customs duty/tax, it's available via Royal Mint or LPM (HK) they'll both ship to Italy.
  4. Thanks i had no idea its still legal tender, i agree its a nice looking coin though. Would be even nicer if it was gold!
  5. Hi, I'm relatively new to stacking/collecting and recently came across a box of old bits my grandfather had passed on to me. Amongst them was this coin - back in the day it was more 'golden' than it is now and I assume was a fake 'gold' version. It had always been kept in a case but somehow in my loft its ended up loose in a box and clearly has tarnished to reveal it's truer colour. I don't have the proper scales to weigh it. Kitchen scales say 27g so i'm assuming its a silver crown? 38mm across Anyone able to verify Cheers
  6. Im tempted to order a gold 1 oz bar on Lpm even if resulting vat etc will bump the price significantly. Its clear the coins have gone up in value, does anyone think the bars will do the same?
  7. Cheers. i'll get the coloured set then. It might be the way to kick start my kid into a future love of stacking!
  8. Funny, I literally just looked at these and considered ordering and came on here to do a search. I don't stack silver but my child is into dinosaurs and thought it'd be nice to buy. Can anyone tell me the difference between colour and standard silver? Does colour deteriorate quicker if not stored correctly?
  9. Hi, Looking to buy sovereigns from these years if anyone has anything: 1927 1980 1984 Also interested in any young head shield backs. I'm in Spain and happy to pay the extra cost of postage with UPS Cheers
  10. I'm no expert and relatively new to this but as I undestand it - Yep sovereign is not pure gold bullion like a britannia. Sovereign is mixed with a small amount of other metal. So if you want to base it on pure gold content go for the britannia. I've been reading up and it seems sovereigns, especially older ones (like the young victoria head for example) are more sought after and more liquid as a result. There's also the collector aspect in that your son might get more fired up about tracking down a certain year of sovereign or face. Whereas the britannia's are same same. I just bought a
  11. Try this link one of the forum members created http://goldprice.eu5.net/# its all the best sites to purchase and most competitive I've personally used this forum to buy as some great deals. Also used coininvest.com for larger gold purchases, they've been great for me but i'm in spain. V low secure & insured postage costs too. You can kiss goodbye to Pm's once you're in the horse world. Good luck with that
  12. We've just done the same for our child. Invested it all in gold coins (they're CGT free). Of course there's no way to know if it'll lose value in future or increase but i'd rather take the chance than leave in a bank account in the event of a financial reset, which seems increasingly likely. This way there's something physical they will know is theirs for 20-30 years ahead and also stops us using it for anything else tempting... such a holidays.
  13. Welcome, its a good place for likeminded collectors/stackers!

    There's jewellers and pawn shops here in spain who wont need any ID. However, it's a bit harder sourcing gold coins here at the moment. Even if you do end up buying with ID - where's the proof you kept them? There's a thousand things you might have done with those coins and if it came to a confiscation point in the future - we're all doomed anyway and would've probably used the coins long before to buy our way out of situations....
