  1. Wow, the only one that has been mentioned twice has been the 2015 which is a surprise. Seems most designs are well liked. I'd go with the 2001 myself but I must say the RM have got these designs right more often than they've got it wrong. Also like the 2005, if only I could find the BU version, they are so hard to find ๐Ÿ˜ฉ
  2. Hi all, While it seems the 2014 is widely been chosen as the best Britannia design thought I'd ask the question to see if this generally is the consensus or if there's other designs people like. So which is the best or your favourite (as these could be different)? Any design is fair game even the classic standard one. Here's a link to all so far to jog your memory: https://www.bullionbypost.co.uk/info/britannia-coin-design/ Answers on a postcard ๐Ÿ˜Š
  3. Victoria and Albert side by side. Thank you @terakris
  4. Hi all, As the title suggests looking for a graded 1937 George VI Full Sov. NGC holder preferred but ones in an PCGS holder could also work. All grades considered. Thanks!
  5. Anyone have any 2017 proof 1 sov or 2017 piedfort boxes they don't want? Thanks
  6. My 1/4 oz greyhound arrived! That concludes my 1/4 Queens Beast collection. Just the 1oz to go ๐Ÿ™ƒ
  7. These arrived today. If youโ€™re looking for Air Tite capsules and tubes give @morezone a shout (coins not included ๐Ÿ˜Š)
  8. Sounds like you have a plan in place. I think the questions you are asking are difficult to answer which is probably why you're not getting the responses you are looking for. The answer to your 1st question of "whether to keep buying sovreigns or change to buying 1oz gold coins...which is the better investment...." is it completely depends on which sovereigns and which 1oz gold coins. Not all coins are made equal which I'm sure you are aware so the question in itself suggests that you should either continue to collect standard bullion sovereigns for now or pause all together until you get a be
  9. Honestly when it comes to specific coins it really depends on your preference. Similarly you can get a PF70 1989 sovereign for the price of a 1oz Britannia, it really depends on your circumstances. Are you keeping them for 1, 2, 5, 10, 20 years? Never? Do you want something you can sell quickly and easily? Do you want something you like the look of or do you not care? There's no one simple answer, its really up to the individual
  10. I collect a mixture of both. Sovereigns are most certainly more liquid for when you want to convert into cash quickly but 1oz give you more bang for your buck long term. I agree with @Stuntman that you should stick to bullion close to spot and acquire knowledge before delving into anything else. My 1 oz of choice at the mo is pre 2013 special reverses. BU sovereign wise 2002s, 2005s, gillicks and young head shield backs. I also have a list of numismatic modern sovereigns I've researched which I hope (and pray) will appreciate in value over the long term and are not as reliant on spot price. Ta
  11. As @Clockpuncher said, the prices are pretty much the same as online. Also, they don't have much in London so you normally have to call in advance to get it sent down to the showroom which takes a day or 2. Lastly they take your I'd for every transaction they do now no matter how big or small. Its a snazzy showroom though!
  12. That concludes my 2oz silver Queenโ€™s Beast collection ๐Ÿ˜Š
  13. Arrived this morning. Not bad, not bad at all ๐Ÿ˜Š
