Good Morning. After a break from the Forum I was lucky not to have missed the 2022 Proof Sovereign release. As I had no prior knowledge of it I had to make a quick decision. yesterday, of whether I liked the coin or not and then take a view on value for money.
I decided to buy one Sovereign. I have to say the design is a real winner and when I viewed Mr. Noad's video on YouTube later it just reinforced what a great design this coin is with great design heritage too.
In this day and age where there is a sea of money out there and an insatiable demand for good assets it was surely no surprise that there was no availability after less than 24 hours. The contrast to the 1989 Sovereign where it was just not popular really pulls the current economic situation into ultra sharp focus.
So I'd say; "Very well done" to all that bought one, or better still a set. I really can hardly wait to see it in hand - I think it will be a screamer in proof.
Is it a 50/50 whether or not it will be Bullion release? What are the options - could there be further BU limited releases?
So interesting and in closing I would also say that this thread has been such a pleasure to read all the way from the start, till now, and hopefully much more to come with lovely photographs of beautiful coins in hand.
