  1. Lighthouse make ‘floating’ display cases. The coin is held in place by two transparent membranes attached to an outer frame. There are a few other companies which do the same. I would guess they would be cheaper than having a framing store make a bespoke frame.
  2. Photo is not really clear. This link may help https://www.925-1000.com/british_marks.html
  3. Gold won’t tarnish. If the Sov is new perhaps store in a capsule to prevent marks, dings and so on.
  4. Don’t panic. Give delivery another day or two. As you say, the local PO is having problems. And, it’s insured!
  5. I’ve had silver bullion coins show as solid black on airport X-ray machines. On examination I was asked what they were - 1 kilogram silver Kookaburras. No problems, just TSA was just interested. Never been asked about gold bullion coins.
  6. I doubt any numismatic collector is overly influenced the the price of metals. In my limited experience the rarity and condition of the coin are the dominating factors. As for the value of any numismatic coin, who knows what future value could be? Interests change, markets re-price accordingly. I think coin collectors are pretty much like any other collector, they become interested in a topic, expand their knowledge and expend their money. Really, why should a 1913 Liberty Head nickel sell for five million USD, or David Gilmour’s (Pink Floyd) black Fender Stratocaster sell for $3.9 mi
  7. Be careful about using the face value on government issued bullion coins. This type of bullion is considered to be non-circulating legal tender (NCLT). Trying to be cute by importing a volume of coins by only declaring the face value may result in unhappiness if the Customs officer is aware of the bullion’s value. Have a look at the Customs website, you will get an authoritative answer.
  8. 1 tube of maples and 1/2 ounce gold maple or roo each month. Avoid looking at charts and reading about Trump, China and the stock market.
  9. All air-tight safes could have moisture problems. I guess it depends on your local environment. Air will be trapped inside the safe. If the air is moist enough it could start mould growing. How often would you open the safe and for how long would the door be open (opening the safe will allow air to change)? A couple of packs of desiccant, or a glass of rice or baking powder will all absorb moisture.
