Queens Beasts 1 kilo Completer

Mine is near perfect and was purchased 3.5 months ago from Atkinsons at a good price at the time £967 !!!

Just illustrates the volatility in the market price of silver.
At this price level you really don't want to see obvious marks or scratches.
They generally come in capsules so it's down to the Royal Mint who do not guarantee blemish free unfortunately.

Spending this kind of money as a gift and bearing in mind the weight and how in time it may be handled and greasy fingers comes to mind, easily spotted fine scratches from light dusting, and maybe if unlucky the dread milk spots, maybe worth taking a look at uncirculated gold coins ( sovereign and half sovereign pair for example ) and maybe the year of birth ?

Lucky little girl, what an amazing gift. 

For the sake of a tenner definitely get a good one, if you're spending almost £900 on new silver it should be perfect.

Obviously it is not my place to advise you how to spend your money, but I would echo the sentiments of @Pete above.

A nice shiny kilo bar she could play with until the cows come home and it will still be a kilo of bullion if or when she needs it.

My personal preference would be the upcoming proof sovereign if you are looking for a special gift with potential to turn a decent profit.

Let us know what you decide. Good luck.

I bought one from BBP a few weeks ago (see the other thread on this) and the quality of my particular coin is absolutely fine.  

It's not the sort of coin that you would want to handle.  It's a visually impressive piece of silver that is best left within its protective capsule.

Personally I think that these will do well in the future, but that is not my motivation for owning it.

I also agree that the 2022 proof sovereigns will do well, but they are nowhere near as visually impressive as a 1 kilo silver bullion coin with a face value of £500.

Good luck with your decision!

Hello

I am considering buying this coin as a gift for my new Great grand daughter.

The only one I can find is marked as second quality with a few small scratches to the Queens face at £882.

Should I avoid this and wait for unmarked example?

Thanks

Frank

 

I'm sorry to tell you that they are sold out at @ChardsCoinandBullionDealer, and might have been rather expensive at £70,000! 😎

Oh, sorry did you mean silver?

We sold out of those as well, and don't expect any more for about a month, give or take.

Just has mine delivered from BBP and it has lots of little scratches on the incuse around the beasts, strange place to pick up scratches. I realise this is a bullion coin but with the premium and size I expected a lot better TBH.

Try complaining, I think I'm right in saying the RM took bullion coins back, maybe BBP may do likewise.

Pete makes a very valid point, it maybe therefore helpful to suggest anything other than an exchange will result in their Google (can't be changed) and Trustpilot reviews.

I have to admit I have no idea if that will help as I've never liked the feel of their website/s. 

Either way, I wish you well.
