    Well first I apologize for taking the photo of Victoria in the capsule.
    I love these coins because of the Monarchs on them. Anyone else collect Sovereigns?

    I believe they have a better value than just bullion depending on year and mint.
    The mark on the reverse is on the holder....

    Show me your Sovereigns....... F0629790-FCD0-4363-93D9-DDC52507DA7E.jpeg F0629790-FCD0-4363-93D9-DDC52507DA7E.jpeg 2FB75D86-2C51-437D-A1D6-8D405D06DD02.jpeg EDC56082-252B-4B2A-B5B6-5137F77AAC0E.jpeg

    I absolutely love sovereigns and bought several a few years ago when gold was cheaper. Now I can't afford them :( Also, I just realized that I'm missing a KGVI. That's gonna bother me.

    Here are a few of my Sovs:

    I just looked at KGVI and they are quite rare so I don't feel so bad about not having one :p

    I have some pre-war French roosters, a Swiss 20 Franc, and a 1915 Austria Ducat. Austria is the only one that has an emperor's head on it.

    Nice sovereign, @Mammothtooth and @furryfrog02 ! :)

    I also like the collecting Victoria sovereign, especially the young portraits. Here are a few I picked up, just before their prices skyrocketed. Maybe I should branch out to the Melbourne Mint sometime in the future.

    I love the early Young head with the coat of arms on the reverse.
    I wish I would've bought more when I could still get them for a reasonable price.

    All mine I bought from my LCS and it was just a random assortment. I lucked out in getting at least 1 of each.

    Sovereigns are what got me started into other European coins and then eventually all over the world. Great coins. 2F18D77A-7F57-4E64-A2B0-1002B5A2A64F.jpeg F1192ADE-A6FE-4E41-AF64-143AFA759700.jpeg 99377B37-273E-4007-AF13-C667942939FE.jpeg 9B1A31A2-9429-499D-A095-C74178600325.jpeg 9536B79D-0CFA-4B4A-A59E-56B7FFEB1BA3.jpeg FA37BF61-CACA-4867-AA61-A062E0FC05CE.jpeg A556FD6C-AE9F-47F9-9A46-0F2C3B823F9A.jpeg FDC09D36-AA69-4764-89CD-FEE32AA133A9.jpeg

    Thanks. I bought them all the day after Brexit. I figured that gold may be going up and I had some extra cash and 1 less mouth to feed at the time :p

    By the way, I totally missed the post where you talked about the KGVI being rare. My mistake!
