Looking at your photos - I'd have the better looking ones in for slabbing. Prices for MS63 should be strong, lower grades it depends, but should be better than melt. With grading fees, you may break even on the AU coins, but you should do slightly better or higher for MS coins. Anything rare or high grade - I would definitely slab as they sell easier than raw. Too many counterfeits out there.

  • Hello,

    Based on your spread sheet you bought at a very nice price point. I imagine some years ago. My experience with buying and selling sovereigns, it is worth stabbing mint state coins. AU coins it depends on the date and whether they are on he higher end of the scale or not. I have both PCGS and NGC. There is a couple of large dealers in Australia that primarily uses PCGS and they seem to sell better than NGC there. Your coins are all common - so I doubt anyone from the UK or Australia will pay up for them. In the US - it just depends on timing and whether you find the right buyer. For AU, I'd use EBay - maybe Great Collections. For MS sovereigns I'd use Great Collections or Heritgae to sell them.
    

    A good book on grading

    I tend to have my slabbed, but I collect them. Many dealers will buy them for near melt slabbed or not. Even the rare ones. Dealers that specialize in sovereigns will pay more.

    Hi, in my post you suggested messaging you directly regarding Australian sovereigns.
    https://forums.collectors.com/discussion/1009747/australian-sovereigns-question-about-grading/p1?new=1

    I'm really just trying to determine if they are worth the cost of professional grading, or only worth melt value.

    I have started a spreadsheet that I'll attach an image to this post for your reference.

    Appreciate the offer for help.

    Thanks,
    Rick
