  1. Apmex has them on pre-sale with expected shipment 11th January, 2021 (for both gold and silver) - they usually are one of the first retailers to get these I believe.
  2. Interested, thanks! (I registered via the link but did not receive any email for further details on how to join the webinar. Not sure if they're limiting participants? 🤔) edit: Ok, the RM FB-page says: A link to the webinar will appear on this page at 11am (referring to the registration webpage) So should be all right, starting in 35 mins! 😊
  3. I sometimes ponder if I would've had the wits or the funds to buy these back in the late 60's.. (likely not). Glorious coin - and as you said, many others as well in that auction. "An early encounter I had was with the great London coin dealer Geoffrey Hearn, who took three Una and the Lion £5 pieces from his pocket and wanted £1,800 for them. Not £1,800 each, but £1,800 for all three, the only problem was, who had £1,800 or the equivalent of $5,200 in those days? I paid my first secretary £15 a week and that was 50% more than she was earning in her previous job." https://news.coinup
  4. Great memory! The last sentence on Preface: "As far as for rarity and availability are concerned I have given a rating for every sovereign listed; this rating is based on sovereigns found in very fine condition but it should be remembered the some of the more common sovereigns can be rated quite scarce if discovered in uncirculated grade."
  5. I'm by no means an expert - so this is no advice... but I think generally the 'safest' error sovereigns are those which are listed in Spink and/or Marsh. If it's not listed, it tends to be of less collector interest and worth less premium. E.g., the 1860 O/C error is listed in both books. It's a recognised variety. If it's not listed, "the jury may still be out there". Exercise caution.
  6. Don't forget Biggus Dickus and his fellow Romans, I'm sure they were involved in some of the diversity building, too... (not to mention the Vikings, ahem!) 😅
  7. Cool. 👍 I'm envisioning Ziggy Stardust type "flash" dominating the reverse. 🤔
  8. Europeanmint showing even the 1/10 up for pre-sale. Great looking coins! 👍 https://www.europeanmint.com/2021-1-10oz-uk-gold-britannia-coin/
  9. I avoid them. A lot of faked PM CertiCards on eBay, sadly this has been going on for years already and new&better fakes keep popping up. See e.g., http://www.perthmintbullion.com/Blog/Blog/15-05-20/Don_t_Get_Duped_By_Fake_Minted_Bars.aspx
  10. Made it to news in Australia. “We in the World Health Organisation do not advocate lockdowns as the primary means of control of this virus,” Dr Nabarro told The Spectator. “The only time we believe a lockdown is justified is to buy you time to reorganise, regroup, rebalance your resources, protect your health workers who are exhausted, but by and large, we’d rather not do it.” Dr Nabarro’s main criticism of lockdowns involved the global impact, explaining how poorer economies that had been indirectly affected. -- Melbourne’s lockdown has been hailed as one of the stri
  11. Very nice - I applaud the appealing "shiny" effect. 👍 Have a look.
  12. I heard there have been widespread DoS attacks since yesterday - e.g, Teams & Zoom services down intermittently. The official explanation is "technical difficulty". 🤔
