  1. VAT, manufacturing premium and delivery costs all contribute to the premium over spot. I like the design. I'm biased, I have the gold bullion version 😊

    copy or real

    Looks real rather than fake to my eyes.

    I was thinking the same!

    1989 Half and Full Sovereigns

    The 1989 double sovereign is the value proposition for that year if you want the design, rather than the investment. It seems that most people don't collect the doubles, and the price of a double is often less than the price of the sovereign. I'd love a 1989 double sovereign, or indeed the quintuple!

    Matte sovereign

    It's a no from me. I'll get a 2019 bullion sovereign when the gold price dips a little.
  6. Do silver and platinum attract sales taxes in the US? Sadly they do if you buy them in the UK (from a UK seller): 20% VAT. Therefore I have only bought a couple of platinum coins (2018 1 oz Britannia being the other) for interest value rather than investment value - despite thinking that platinum is currently very cheap. I have a few pure silver bullion coins but again, just for pleasure interest. The only 10oz one I have is the Royal Mint 2018 Valiant, which is lovely.
  7. Nice multiple! I think the most I have managed is 257,280 (67 pounds for a quarter farthing)!
  8. The 1/4oz and 1oz gold Queens's Beasts that I am buying/collecting are not that expensive a way to buy gold. Buying in the UK while they are on current release, the 1oz coins cost about 5% above spot, delivered. For example, today the gold price is GBP 1016 per ounce, and you can get a 1oz Falcon Of The Plantagenets coin for GBP 1065 delivered. That's decent value as far as I'm concerned, given that I like the coins in the first place. The 1/4oz are of course more expensive, the equivalent Falcon coin would cost GBP 303 delivered on today's price. Currently, people are paying significantly more than spot price for the earlier 1oz coins in the series - the Lion and the Griffin in particular. I certainly intend to collect the remaining 4 designs during their release time frame (about 12 months for each coin) and then enjoy them for many years to come.
  9. I like this series rather a lot. I'm collecting the 1/4 oz and 1 oz in Gold, and I also have a 1 oz Platinum Lion (it being the first 1 oz Platinum UK bullion coin, I believe) but not looking to add any more Platinum Beasts. Anyone else into these, apart from Azda and me?

    Lovely quality there, Gary. There are plenty in your collection that I would happily give a good home to!

    George III Crown Collection

    Beautiful examples indeed. Good luck with the sale, and I hope you have been able to retain at least one, hopefully your favourite, just as a thing of beauty and happy memories.

    Instead of a coin, why not......

    Cars and art for me. I love driving, and having a proper driver's car is something I will always hope to keep doing. Proper cars can be had at practically any budget of course. I currently have a 9 year old BMW M3 saloon (the one with the V8 engine, and a manual gearbox) and a 3 year old Porsche Cayman GT4. As for art, I like all kinds of art from representational to completely abstract, whether pictures or sculptures. The house may resemble an art gallery sometimes, but that just makes me smile. I would love a nice watch (and one in particular, a TAG Heuer Monaco Gulf Edition) but cannot currently justify spending the money on it as a treat to myself. Well done for doing so!
  14. ^^^ and what did you think? I like: The Moneymaker, Smoke Detector, Dejalo and 15 the best, I think. Some would say the music is formulaic and there are certainly lots of pretty obvious influences in there, but so what, it's well done. I also have her solo album 'The Voyager' - my favourite on that one is You Can't Outrun 'Em. I don't have any Megadeth, despite having seen bands such as Iron Maiden and Motorhead in concert several times each!
