57 and 62

Out of interest why is 1962 such a hard to find year?

It's the only Gillick I have (my birth year), but it took a while to find.

No idea, plenty of them, 3,000,000 minted, the 57 over 2million.

Exactly,and yet you rarely see them come up for sale or they have a premium. Chards ask £335 for a VF 1965 and £380 for a VF 1962

We used to keep a "secret stash" of 1957 and 1989 sovereigns, 1962 is the next scarcest of the first portrait sovereigns, with the exception of 1953, and I have only seen 2 of those.

Someone just asked me to grade our stock of better 1899-S Sydney mint sovereigns:

1+6+12=19 makes for a nice symmetrical arrangement.

First thing I did is get my wife, kids and my birth years...... the kids happen to be on years there are only proofs 🙂 ... but both got graded as PF70's with mine and the wife's MS64 (hers is 1965

We're in a race to the bottom my friend, and I'll leave it at that.

How do people like to store their coins. I tried display boxes but didn't like them. Now i just throw them in a box. I get more pleasure going through them. I forget what i have some times.

They go great in 35mm film tub, you get 8 in with the capsule so great for making nice round weights (in imperial)
