I've been looking  to buy Three or Four of them from the royal mint but looking at the price £395.00 which works out at £79.00 oz

I know at they are proof but will they seem well over priced to me & would there hold their money ?.

Thanks night owl.

I bought one of them and it's a great coin. The 2014 goes for £800 or so and its not clear if the 2015 will have a longer term premium.

I think you need to ask yourself; "Am I buying the coins for my collector or stacker need?"

- If you are looking to buy these from a stacker point of view; then these are obviously way overpriced per ounce.
You should buy regular bullion coins if you want to get most 'intrinsic metal content' from your cash. 
Bullion will always be valued close to spot should you want to re-sell these.

- Proofs are beautifully crafted coins, look stunning and will be a great addition for a collector;
You may need to wait a bit longer and/or rely on the collector community or shop around at specific dealers if you want to re-sell these at the 'numismatic' value.

I consider myself both stacker and collector; I don't mind paying slightly more per ounce if I really like a particular design and will not be concerned about the spot price.

Hope that made sense....

i cant see these ever reaching the same premium as the 2014 , they are a very nice design but not as nice as the 2014.

think it tells you something that they have been on sale for almost a year and havent yet sold out

I know it's a long way off but last year Island Stamps and Coins did a 25% Black Friday discount off everything they sell. I'm saving my pennies in the hope they run it again this year as it makes a fair old difference to the price of Royal Mint, 5oz coins and coin sets so I'm holding out for this.

They sell the 2015 5 oz Britannia and their stuff is the exact same price as the Royal Mint but they do loyalty points which helps discount future purchases, the combination of these and the 25% discount they did on Black Friday made it a great price compared to the Royal Mint however.

2014 sold out and does fetch a premium.

The last remaining stocks of 2013 were dumped through eBay.

2015 has been out for ages and with a mintage of 650 and is still available.

 

Unless it's one for your own personal collection I wouldn't bother.

Hi Scuzzle  thanks for the sharing at about Black Friday  I think your on the right path with that so I will wait & see if I can get a good price for them then.
