Is it just me or is this price a little high? Are we selling too cheaply here on the forum 😂


I was even made aware of this by an email from RM no less!

RM prices are always a higher than can be achieved else where. They view as buying from them is a guaranteed level of authenticity. The question of price on the forum is not an easy one as you could view TSF as a centre of excellence and knowledge therefore people tend to understand value but is based on a marketplace of individuals. External to this is the wider public buying where they view RM as a "safe" (this does not mean TSF isn't) method to purchase products. I know quality has been an issue for RM on some releases but you have a perceived greater level of buyer security. Does that warrant such a premium? That is for the individual to determine

I do wonder who the Royal mint buys from, their listings make it obvious they don't have leftovers lying around from that era. Would love to know if anyone has sold to the RM or knows how they stock up.

However, as @Rll1288stated; the authenticity is a big part of the deal for buyers who wouldn't be able to verify otherwise or are too scared to buy from other sources. 

Also OP, I'd be happy to sell you a George V Perth sov at a bargain price of £659 😂

I've seen the 1921 George V slabbed MS62 sold for £430...on ebay (Take your chances there) unslabbed same year sold for £330. In my experience when it comes to sovreigns from that era and earlier being sold on the RM website....you can expect to pay £200-£300 over the price they are worth....good ole RM...Nothing is cheap on their site...
