These came from a GIM'er in Ontario, Canada - a few years back. They were raw and reasonable then. Sent them into NGC later.

He even THREW in a 1/2 Sovereign 1914 - it is - "for free." He's a dealer therein. He had a FASTCAR type name.

Enjoy. 500 years of SOVEREIGNS...

Just checked populations:

On the 1/2 Sov. none higher; One Sovereign only 1 higher; Two Sovereign 6 higher. When GRADED back in 2009 none were higher - populations always GROW!

The various ways you can find sovereigns around the world. Plus the FREE BE that a great GIM'er threw in for fun. I even beat IRONS on that ones.
The others I showed above were around $1,100 back then if my old memory serves correctly and IT does...

These are the FIVE dollar Canada they made at the same time as the SOVEREIGNS.

A three year set this was #2 when I had it up on NGC. IN SETS.

Right now to me is just like 2001 all over again. I think you still have a ten times run coming up between now and 2018. Now that may be in deflationary terms whereas
the govy LOPS (cuts off) two zeros on the money. A hundred is a BUCK etcetera. a Thousand bucks is ten dollars.

But gold would be fifty then; just like a AGE 1 oz. today.

The golden constant.

The only way I'd touch sovereigns is if they were slabbed. There are many counterfeits floating around.
There is risk - but if you buy from a reputable dealer and check weight / size, you'll be OK. I would (and am) take this risk for non-nuministic versions of sovereigns. Anything of value over spot, I would have slabbed.

There are many who would say you have it backwards.

If not in a slab, it can get put on a scale and measured with calipers. Kinda hard to do that through the plastic.

Bragging story:

Back around 2006 ish a fellow had 32 1925 Sovereigns BU for sale on EBAYER (aspirin type) so I bought them
pretty cheap around $120 ea. Then when i got them I bought the SOVEREIGN BOOK (great & out of print)
and found out that they made these in the 1950s as a reprint against the guy with the Swiss Mint making their
coins. (they were after him minting their copyright - and he gave them the finger - I think he won - but had to stop
because they had to start up again with ELIZABETH II in the late fifties-early sixties)

So here I was with 32 really nice coins with the date 1925 (dad's birthday & still above ground) on them.

I sent them in and slabbed them. They can NOT tell the 1925 from the 1950s redo so they all have a 1925
on the slab. They are all really really good because they were made better than the 1925 ones because MERRY
OLE England was pi$$ed off. They came back half MS64 1/4 MS63 1/4 MS62 = soon they'll be up over $500
to $1000 when gold busts off between now and new August. Rule # 2 study the history.

PS moral is buy the books and learn to SLAB with the GREAT slabbers NGC/PCGS.

PS they are now not bullion but really BS numismatics = :cool05::cool05::cool05::cool05:
