  1. It’s not my area of expertise but I found the bbc link interesting, some here are much more knowledgeable
  2. Obviously the price of the old stuff has risen, and buying this years bottled stuff could take many years if not decades to show similar gains if at all.
  3. Something might interest this thread https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-somerset-54040307
  4. There’s many more 1887s in the graded population suggesting this should be the cheaper option for a decent grade. I’ve only been into numismatics for a few years so this is just my personal opinion, no advice intended. I prefer either bullion (but not too rough!) grade low premium or the best you can afford towards the top end of the graded population, the middle ground can sometimes be hard to sell on. As it’s a £5 that’s a fair amount to put into a single coin so for pure bullion 5 individual sovs might be better in terms of liquidity, so for me I’d only be interested in one as a premium num
  5. If you’re in no particular rush, you could keep an eye out for some of these in Auctions. Could bag a bargain (watch out for bid premium though!) but I’d get it checked after, I’ve read fakes can slip into auctions and not always picked up. They should honour a refund however I would have thought if found not to be genuine some 1887s in forthcoming auctions.... https://www.davidduggleby.com/auctions/20082020882/0/2505/QueenVictoria1887goldfivepoundcoinpreviouslymounted.aspx?search=1887 https://auctions.lockdales.com/catalogue/lot/43c671dff8133ad37429d2af6994f1fd/1620b385b6067af
  6. Yes, pretty established dealer. They had a stall at the London coin show I went too. I haven’t traded with them personally but others here may vouch for them too?
  7. Sovereign rarities have one cheaper and I think better grade https://www.sovr.co.uk/victoria-1887-five-pounds-golden-jubilee-issue-bi03142.html Even have a 1902 (even cheaper! But currency issue) if you’d prefer that year. https://www.sovr.co.uk/edward-vii-1902-five-pounds-currency-issue-mintage-34-910-di13274.html
  8. Not sure about that but wouldn’t surprise me, maybe the rate might though since 7% appears high at the moment. A year later on from my link and Austria participating once again. Why not I suppose at such low rates but all this borrowing, I can’t ever see it being repaid https://www.bloomberg.com/opinion/articles/2020-06-24/austria-100-year-bond-pays-less-than-1-interest-it-s-normal-now
  9. £27.50 per coin plus post min purchase 10 coins
  10. £735 for the 1 kg (2 available) £190 for the 250g (2 available) Plus postage
  11. Full, half quarter sovereigns. £800 £775 including special delivery to UK address
