New Purchase - The three piece King Charles III sovereign set.

I received this three piece set from the Royal Mint last week. The coins are really quite nice.

The 2022 King Charles III Memorial Sovereign

The 2023 King Charles III Coronation Sovereign

The Royal Mint added this piece to the set, a 1958 Queen Elizabeth II sovereign. This marks the date when Charles became the Prince of Wales. The guarantee was that the piece would grade "at least EF." The Spink guide says that this piece is only worth the bullion value in less than Mint State, but something over $470 is nothing to sneeze at.

And here is the top of the box that houses this set.

    The Royal Mint provides really good shipping service. They sent the set to my PO box which I much appreciated and there was no problems with customs. I can't say the same when I was getting coins from dealers abroad.
