  • What I am collecting / Investing in
    Began stacking 1 oz gold Krugerrands and bullion gold Sovereigns. Added the Rwandan Lunar series 1 oz gold Year of the Rooster and Year of the Dog as Collector pieces. Continued with a small stack of 1 oz and 1/2 oz gold Krugerrands and 1 oz gold Canadian Maples. From there I really came to enjoy the numismatic aspect and history of the gold Sovereign. Having grown a variety of Sovereign collection from the first modern Sovereign from 1817 to the current 2017 rendition of that Sovereign into the 2018 proof. I started adding the 1/4 oz gold Queen’s Beast series and a 1/4 oz gold Britannia. I have a small collection of silver, mostly proof coins to minimally tip the silver to gold ratio.

  1. Finally received mine after order mix-up with The Royal Mint…
  2. Can’t wait to see what these will look like in 175 years…glorious, I can only imagine…perhaps much like the original 1847 release…Portrait inbound. Appreciative of being a part of this historical remake. Enjoy the moments of why we are a close knit coin collecting, numismatic community…
  3. Twitter avatar…tilting at windmills… Who would not expect secondary dealers of significantly increasing prices of high demand commems…just being involved in coin collecting for a year would give one that data point. Supply and demand…it’s real…thank you for validating capitalism. I was offered early access to Gothic Crown gold releases from my AM…I declined and went for the early morning routine of RM queue roulette and got the 2 oz silver. I work two careers for a living to enjoy access to the joy of PMs and numismatics…Happy. Consider these coins as retention of wealth…not investments and you will live easier. By the way, the return of investment percentage-wise in the silver release is probably significantly more than the gold. All I got at the moment…back to the bourbon and scotch…oh, and pre-33 gold!
  4. And lastly, closing out the year with the star…2021 2 oz Silver Gothic Crown Quartered Arms Proof! Wishing everyone a Happy New Year!
  5. Finally getting caught up with everything over the past couple of months and these silver (and a bronze model Half Sovereign) additions made it into the collection.
  6. A wonderful TSF Christmas draw surprise from @mr1030! Two ounces of silver and a special surprise of a Geiger 1g gold bar!
  7. @dicker, I just ordered it off of Amazon for $23…will have a read and hopefully a good add to the numismatic bibliophile collection. Thanks for all your recommendations in pirates treasure and numismatic history!
  8. Gotta admit, never, ever the same experience ordering from The Royal Mint on major release day. Up at 03:15 am local and put into the wait for 04:00 am local (09:00 am UK) queue time. Luckily queued up on laptop and mobile. 04:00 am queued at 607 on laptop and 4560 on mobile! Still took forty minutes to finally, finally get to The Royal Mint site for selection, of the only coin left, a 2 oz Silver. No worries, was truly the only coin I wanted for this release. And I did select for the March release continuity…these 03:00 am alarms are getting old… I got what I wanted and am satisfied (even after having an exchange with my AM a forehand), further I am glad to see those lucky enough for experience of a magnificent 2 oz gold…and I am saddened to have seen members having spent over two hours in queue to realize nothing left in stock. Overall a great community here that sticks together and supports each other with words of encouragement, thoughtful recommendations and jovial chiding to lift spirits. Thank you all for sharing in this experience and memorable Great Engravers day!!
