  1. Here is the 1923 South African mint proof sovereign, this one graded PF65 by PCGS. Mintage of only 655 coins. I have been on the lookout for one of these for a while now. Thanks Eric @drakesterlingfor this one, I will be keeping this a core part of my proof sovereign collection.

    Dammm

    I will go and take a look at it when it’s on display at the mint.
  3. Two of my favourite 50p designs just came back from PCGS. These are the silver proof versions.
  4. The Victory over Japan strike on the day sovereign.
  5. The 1897 Melbourne sovereign arrived today, a recent eBay buy. Have had the two 1979 sovereigns for a while. A great year!
  6. Hello Chris, are these still available?
  7. Andrew. I never made fun of or moaned about the privy mark, I actually quite like them. I collect sovereigns and love it’s timeless design.
  8. Hello Richard, as you can probably guess my vote was for the sovereign!
  9. I have to admit I thought the Diversity built Britain design was one of the dullest of 2020. There were a lot of great designs in 2020 that seemed to have polled poorly.
  10. I can’t go to the Perth Mint without taking home some gold.
  11. Received this beauty from fellow coin YouTuber “Gold Digger Dave” as part of our regular mystery coin swap. I was very pleased when I opened up the package and saw this.
  12. In the same week seven Queen Elizabeth II proof sovereigns came back from conservation & grading by PCGS and one (the 2013) from the Coin Cabinet auction.
  13. Bought this Platinum Wedding anniversary strike on the day sovereign when it was released by the Royal Mint in 2017. Sent it off for grading to PCGS and it came back PR68DCAM. So it was incorrectly described as a proof coin (it’s brilliant uncirculated so should be “MS” on the holder) and 68 for a new coin is a bit disappointing. Earlier this year I broke it out of its slab and resubmitted it for conservation & grading in the hope of achieving a better grade. It just came back. The result? Go take a look the video (“Hitting a PCGS Slab with a Hammer”) on the Coin Struck YouTube chann
  14. Won this lovely 2oz silver high relief coin from “TheCoinGeek” YouTube channel subscriber competition. It came all the way from Tucson Arizona to its new home with me in Australia.
  15. In 2014 the Royal Mint produced a 2014 sovereign with the St George & Dragon with a proof finish however the Queens portrait on the obverse was minted to a BU standard (see photos below of one of these recently bought by a friend). Hence it is referred to as the 2014 “mule” sovereign. Just wondering if anyone has an idea of how many of these error coins were minted? PCGS have graded 17 of them and NGC 3.
