Have we started to see the end of the sub £400 sovereign?

I think the 1700s is the new normal now. I can’t see sovereigns going for below 400 anytime soon. 
 

Things are changing rapidly this year! 

You could be right. There are a few coins I'm after that are a bit rarer. Goodness know how it's going to affect their price. Sad times for purchases.

I remember about six years ago I was upset I missed out on a sub £200 sovereign!

I remember it flipping over the £200. I had a few Iron's in the fire at the time and funds had other directions to go rather than gold. Would love to have gotten more back then. Well to be fair, it would have been nice to have had more at the £300 mark. If sub £400 has gone I wonder if and when we'll get to the £500 a sovereign.

In similar vein it was the first time I paid over a fiver for a sandwich the other day?

Did the sandwich change?

Did I enjoy it ? Yes :)

was it worth a fiver ? Negotiable

did the price of ham or bread go up relevant to the quality of the sandwich? 

OR was it the unit of exchange in between that changed that made a simple sandwich 🥪 over a fiver ? 

 

£5 for a ham sandwich, crazy times.

It had coleslaw in it, and green stuff in it to called 'salad' I'm lead to believe, that Scottish and north west folk like @GoldDiggerDave are allergic to 

I think that why it was so dear ££

Fancy southern ingredients

Bit of a stretch...

I'll have to concede. @Paul will be alright. My GCSE's weren't great I did get a pass, but it was a hall pass for the loo.
