  1. Thanks for the update @BackyardBullion. I have a few pre-sale items and storage items, so will wait until it is all in stock and go with a future group deal.
  2. Thanks for all the great information, really useful, and good to get a rough idea on price if in good condition. Not mine at any rate, but solid information to relay back to give them a few options if they want it protected.
  3. I am not a collector or stacker of sovereigns, however, was talking generally about coins with a relative and they said they had a gold coin tucked away. Turns out it is a 1990 Proof Sovereign. There is one small dark spot on the reverse above the horses head, and what looks like a smudge at the rear legs. On the obverse there is quite a significant smudge/mark on the Queen’s cheek, and some spots below her chin. I think it has literally sat in a drawer for 30 years, so not taken care of as such. I’ve included a few photos. Are the marks something that can or should be cleane
  4. Thanks - didn’t spot the location!
  5. I have only done a few purchases with them, and currently have a mix of items in storage from pre-sales. I have found them very good, and can recommend @BackyardBullion group order to keep postage costs to a minimum. While premiums and availability are an issue currently, there is still some good value silver to be had if you keep an eye on it.
  6. Compared to the premiums at the moment, this appears to be one of the better deals at the moment.
  7. Well at least if you ask him you will know for definite what he wants to do, not what you speculate he might want to do. Plus, you will have a clean conscience.
  8. Yes, that is what they said. I went for the 3 coin silver proof, initially the order said 3 coin series but, like your good selves, had £65 as opposed to £60 for the first. I now see it has updated to £60 but only mentioned the megalosaurus coin. But the price has been corrected and I have the correct invoice emailed, so content for now!
  9. Obviously demand is high and looks set to sell out in silver as well as gold. Do you think they would do another run of this, or increase mintage on the 2nd and 3rd in the series?
  10. I'm new to collecting and I like both the RM and Perth Lunar series. Looking at some of the prices on ebay, the RM ones do seem to be *currently* reselling well. As I'm new, I am going to backdate the RM Lunar in more of a collection style (1 item per year). However, as the Perth Lunar series 3 has just started in 2020, I am contemplating getting multiples in 1oz silver bullion. As per OP, interested to hear thoughts on both lunar sets.
  11. @BackyardBullion I notice that while EuroMint accept pound sterling, that it is cheaper to do the transaction in euros (if you can avoid exchange fees etc). What method would people be using to reduce cost in exchange?
  12. I have just recently taken an interest in silver coins, I like the idea of collecting but knowledge is very much in its infancy! The site looks like a great resource, so looking forward to getting some research going. Cheers
