  1. Went to my LCS and I bought some gold coins for a very good price. Two notable ones are the 1817 Sovereign (has some slight damage to the obverse) and a 1861 Sydney Mint Sovereign. Paid spot + 8% for the pair and I can't be happier. I always wanted to get one of the older sovereigns after seeing Numistacker's showcase of 1817 sovereigns.
  2. Haven't been on here for a while so here is my Newfoundland sterling silver. Before joining the Canadian confederation in 1949, Newfoundland was a colony, then Dominion, then Commission of Government of the British Empire. It uses its own unique coinage system and also produced the only gold coin (Newfoundland 2 dollar) ever issued by a British colony if I remember correctly. What I have here are 5, 10, 20, 25, and 50 cent sterling silver coins produced between 1896-1943. They are fun coins to own and most of you probably don't see a lot of them over in Europe or in the US.
  3. well I am pretty sure this coin is not in 2k condition. At the very least I got me a very nice coin.
  4. Just curious how much do they usually cost in the UK?
  5. I found a 1824 half sovereign inside a gold melt bin in my coin shop. Paid melt + tax (5%) for it. I call it a win. Added 0 minutes later... will try to get better pics soon.
  6. Gothic Crown offered for sale by the Royal Mint. I was browsing the historic coins website and I stumbled upon this thing for offer. Never thought the Royal Mint would offer a Gothic Crown for sale. If this has been posted I apologise beforehand, just thought it was interesting.
  7. It was big, chunky, and unpopular I think.
  8. Minted to commemorate the 50th Anniversary of the Easter Rising of 1916, 2 million minted but 1,270,000 were later melted.
  9. Ticket no. 2 https://thesilverforum.com/topic/21810-swedish-40-1-krona-coins/
  10. Good to hear that you only spent 5 quid on this.
  11. Please tell me you did not pay too much, because they all look like replicas or fakes.
  12. Hi everyone, I have been watching Numistacker's videos (I have a fondness towards the 1937 sovereign specimen set) for a while and I decided to join this forum. I love collecting 19th and 20th century silver coins (can't afford gold), currently I only have common stuff but I hope I can soon upgrade to rarer stuff. I hope I can soon start trading, selling, and buying stuff from this forum to expand and improve my collection.
