  1. Does anyone know when The Royal Mint expects to release this coin for sale? The strike day is supposed to be 15 Feb. 21 and here it is the 12th and it hasn't gone live yet. Maybe they will release it on the 15th.
  2. I bought the 1/4 oz. proof gold yesterday and have been debating whether I made the right choice or not as I am not particularly fond of the likeness. I really liked The Royal Mint's video on the silver proof coin making that historic flight.
  3. It was, I checked my RM account to see when I ordered the coin for myself. The second issue will probably be released soon and I can't wait.
  4. I don't know if anybody is interested in this coin series anymore after the long delay of getting these coins out to collectors but, I did get confirmation that my coin has been shipped. Woo Hoo! Thank you Royal Mint.🙂
  5. I don't think it will be as sought after as say the QV Celebration SOTD or the Sapphire Coronation or even the 2017 200th Anniversary. My feeling is this, if I'm able to purchase one of these SOTD from the mint great, if not then I generally will not pay the premium on coins for sale on eBay.
  6. It looks like it has sold 95% of the mintage on this one, it must have went on sale Monday morning? I agree that The Royal Mint have been producing too many of these SOTD sovereigns but on the other hand I was not able to get the Queen Victoria or the Brexit so I am happy to have been able to get this one. My small collection of these SOTD includes the 2017, the Sapphire, Prince George's 5th, Prince Albert and now this one.
  7. I was told the exact same thing by my local post office in here in the states. I had a coin ready to ship back to The Royal Mint and they told me that I could spend the money to send it only to have it be returned to me because of some regulation that prohibits shipping silver, gold and platinum coins to the entire U.K. Needless to say I am at a loss for words as to why they don't allow it and it has changed the way I will order in the future.
  8. Congrats Stacker2020; she's a gorgeous piece of proof silver and it never hurts to have a low numbered COA as well. My Una came in the mail earlier this week and looks great. This one will be staying in my collection long term and can't wait to see what's next in this series.
  9. I'm starting to wonder where my silver Una is at the moment. Ordered it on the 25th of Nov., Royal Mint sent an e-mail on the 29th saying it had been received by The Royal Mail being readied for shipping and nothing further and here it is the 14th of Dec. I live in the U.S. so I wonder if I should contact the mint to get a trace on the tracking number or what. Very frustrating.
  10. Well it's sold out a couple of times and then went back up for sale as it is now; I'm praying mine makes its 5000 mile journey still securely in the capsule and not have to return it. That is always a hassle sending coins back to the mint.
  11. I just read the article, and no I don't think it was a harsh sentence. I'm not totally up to speed on British law (I live in the U.S.) but if I'm not mistaken doesn't a portion of the appraised value go to the finders of the treasure and a portion to the land owner? I remember a story a while back from National Geographic of a similar find somewhere in an English pasture where it was split 50/50?
  12. Well after looking at the mintage of this particular presentation (25,000) I will wait until the Royal Mint comes out with another coin and stamp or coin and book set. The overall mintage is 27,500 so I suspect they'll do something similar like they did recently with the Gruffalo.
  13. Well I was already in and logged in 45 minutes before the launch and when 9:00 o'clock rolled around somehow I was booted off or the website just crashed. What a buzz kill.
  14. I see that the royal history is rich with anniversaries so there is no shortage of what the mint can come up with. As a relatively new collector from the Royal Mint (about 1 1/2-2 years maybe?) I find it exciting to collect the proof sovereigns, SOTD sovereigns as well as coins commemorating any other major U.K. accomplishments especially with the low mintages. I think that the U.S. Mint director now is starting to realize that collectors in the U.S. are clamoring for something exciting to collect again and they can learn a lot by maybe doing some of the same things as the Royal Mint. jmvho.
  15. I have my alarm set for a little before 1:00 a.m. PST; I wonder if there will be a queue?
