    Hey guys, I am looking for a gold coin to add to the stack, a 1/4th oz maple leaf, Krugerrand, or eagle would be nice. Can also do sovereigns, half sovereigns or 1 and 2 Rand coins. Willing to up the budget and get a half soverign and full soverign from the same seller, likewise for a 1 and 2 Rand coin, can buy those together as well

    Located in Wollongong, can do face to face or post. Feel free to shoot me a message. Not after anything 1/10th oz or anything like a ducat

    I can up it for a sovereign/half sovereign combo or a 1 rand 2 rand combo. Also willing to buy just the individual sovereign or half sovereign

    I am going too give this a quick bump, before I buy from an online dealer. Sovereign, half sovereign, 1 rand or two rand coin is what I'm chasing

    At today's price, most coins shops will do a $700 raw sovereign and $750 slabbed if you don't know what they look like. Twisting their arm may save another $50.

    I think I could pick one up a little bit cheaper, but who knows with the current circumstances

    Fair market price for Elizabeth, George, or worn Edward sovereigns is probably mid 600s. Something with a bit of history and a story add $50 or $100.

    Not sure I'm understanding what you're after. Most bullion dealers will have a few Maples, Krugs, Eagles in their safes from buy backs and will sell at bullion prices (plus GST if 90% gold).

    Can't exactly stroll into a coin store and ask, since I'm living very far away from the closest one. So only online browsing and can't seem to find much stuff in after. Figured I would ask here before I went to a dealer, but I guess everyone is holding on to their gold at the moment, I don't blame them
