    G'day Folks,

    On offer this time round some Sovereigns from different eras (different types) and one of South Africa's "Modern Sovereigns" to round out the field :)

    We have 2 * Queen Victoria (Young & Jubilee Head), a King George V and a South African 2 Rand :D

    *Sovereigns (And the 2 Rand coin) are 7.988gms of 22k Gold which is 0.2354oz AGW*

    Auction finish at 17:00 AWST (18:30 NT/SA/ - 19:00 QLD/NSW/VIC) - This Sunday!! (15th May)

    ALL Lots finishing at the same time!! *With the (what used to be o_O) usual "5 minutes after Final bid" actual finish for each particular Lot (Forum Timestamp used) *

    Any valid bid for a particular Lot extends the Finish for ALL Lots!!
    ie. The Auction will be Officially over once ALL bids have finished!!


    *No edited Bids, please :) the Forum does indicate "edited" when posts are edited (look above the "Quote Reply" right hand side) so if you make a bid and it turns out the same or lower than a previous bid please place a new post for the bid to make it higher rather than "edit" the post with the unsuccessful bid - although editing to clarify a Lot # is fine :oops: *

    Due to no "seconds" showing on Forum time-clock :rolleyes: any duplicate bids with the same timestamp will be "first in line" gets the spot ;)

    Starting at $623/Lot - ~SPOT price!!! (at time of posting...)

    Postage at Winner's Choice/Cost/Risk (at this stage...)

    Settlement via Bank Transfer/Cash/Crypto :D

    BONUSFREE 1oz Copper Round(s) for winner(s) of Multiple Lots -Pics here

    With Moonyea active and particularly liking Sovs., I think I'll just escalate the bids straight to $675 for each.

    Lot 4 was included in the bid. :)

    (Always happy to buy for less, but figure it’s still a fair price for the same amount of gold as a sov)
