  1. Presume though, you knew what you were getting? Tiny, and as I say the bullion ones don't show off the George & Dragon terribly well. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder they say, in this case I just don't see it.
  2. I like the design but on the bullion coin it isn't terribly well defined, on the proof coins it looks great but of course then you are paying premium price for the pleasure.
  3. If, like me, you'd never seen a sovereign before - be prepared to be a bit disappointed. They are tiny and that horrid colour you see in the pics of the new coins is the colour you'll get. Oddly popular though, so a sensible investment for easy resale. Just not a coin I can enjoy owning.
  4. Yup, that's my impression too - not 'gold' enough for my taste. The more vintage ones I suppose have a more lived in look to them which give them a certain appeal. Doubt I'll be buying any more though, they just don't do it for me.
  5. Received similar today, except I got the Robin Hood silver. Pretty disappointed with the sovereign to be honest, kinda wish I'd gone for a fractional Brittannia. If it hadn't come from the Mint I'd have been wondering if it was genuine - the detailing of the George & Dragon is rubbish. It's the first one I've ever seen, can't see the appeal at all. I know in terms of bullion it doesn't matter much but I want to like my gold - I'm planning to keep it for a long time. Really happy with the Robin Hood silver though, tempted to get the gold version.
  6. I'm even more perplexed as to why earlier silver Britannias seem to be commanding premium price over 2021, not even special editions either.
  7. Hello folks, newbie from Cumbria here. Doubt I'll post much but thought I'd say hi. I've only just started to dip my toe in the precious metal water but looking to slowly add to my meagre 'stack'. Intention is to stack but can't help but have an eye on collecting.
