By the way, British sovereigns happen to be one of the most sought-after, accumulated and stored pre-1933 gold coins in the world. We sell many thousands of this item annually. Some go into safe deposit boxes. Some get buried out on the property. Some get stashed in the piano. All are kept in the event of a social, political or financial breakdown, or some other unexpected catastrophe against all of which the gold British sovereign has been a direct hedge for centuries.
