Well for me i started watching all them gold tv programmes on tv and loved the idea of owning some gold and liked the idea of how much work and how rare it really is i was lucky with my timing with the gold price i remember saving up for a 100gram gold bar it was only a few months before when we first learned about leaving the European union cant remember the price for sure but only had it a month and the price went up a fair bit. I sold it after a while and started my journey with sovereign.s oh dear bad mistake lol. Its as you khow quite addictive just over a year ago i was 55 and thought sod it im gunna take half my pension out and buy some nice sovereign.s i did lol a few 5 sovs and a few sets even bought about 12 of them harington special price ones at £230 ish ive been so lucky i seem to buy at great price and yes sold all them for a great profit think the month i sold them was highest price for ages most of my friends thought i was crazy with my pension and also using most of my wages buying sovereign.s but ive done good and i love to tell them how much i payed and how much ive made better than a bank account ive had a lot of fun to its great when i have needed some funds ive just sold on here and allways done good i have fantastic feedback to lol. Mist of my coins have gone up in value a fair bit. Ive also graded a fair amount of my sovereign.s and been lucky with grades. Ive learning that seems its better to just buy bullion ones no waiting for grade.s and easy to buy and sell but i hate selling any of my coins lol. It was a friend that said look when the price is high and you can make a profit a good one sell some like i said my timing by just luck couldn't have been better.
