  1. Hi all, thanks for your thoughts and advice. I did indeed return this coin and get my money back. I used the money (plus a bit more) to buy a 2012 Gold Proof Charles Dickens £2 coin. Much happier with this purchase - lovely looking coin and mintage of just 202. That leaves my gold collection at the moment as: 2020 proof Sovereign, 1994 proof double sovereign, and proof Charles Dickens £2 coin.
  2. Hi @Roy, here is my donation - great cause. Thanks for organising this great prize draw!
  3. Thanks GodElliott, I feel much better having initiated the return of this coin now and am focussed on collecting what I'd like to collect!
  4. I've started collecting from a collectors position, rather than to trade/invest in gold. As such I've decided I'd like to collect proof gold coins. I've started with the 2020 proof sov and have also bought an 1994 double proof, so think I might try get the 2012 or 2017 proof sov next. Unless you/others have advice as to which good coins might be nice to have from a collectors point of view? I'm wanting coins that look interesting, and also will retain their value when/if I come to sell
  5. Hi all, thanks very much for your thoughts. This is what my gut feeling was so glad to have had it sounded out with you all. I have requested to return the coin and will put the money towards another sovereign!
  6. Hi Stacker, no offence taken! Thanks very much for your thoughts. I have 60 days to return it so I have plenty of time.
  7. Sure, pic below! There isn't a link to their site unfortunately as this coin was offered to me over the phone when I had purchased another coin (that I have since returned)
  8. Hi all, I'm new to this forum and fairly new to collecting! I have started to build up a small collection and wanted some of your thoughts on a recent purchase. I have purchased a four-sided 'Withdrawal From The EU' gold proof sovereign from Hattons of London for £799. Mintage of 311 (supposedly to Mark 31/1 as departure date). I know that proof coins are much more expensive than bullion, but I am wondering if this purchase is not going to retain much numismatic value? I'm aware Tristan De Cunha coins are sometimes seen less favourably, but I also wonder whether the low mintage mitigates this. Any thoughts/advice appreciated! :D
