Atkinsons Bullion & Coins

Earlier this month, a Russian historian claimed he may know the location of over 80 tonnes of gold that was said to have been hidden by French Emperor Napoleon Bonaparte over 200 years ago.

This week sees the release of the 2019 Full Sovereign Gold Coin, so we thought this was the perfect chance to delve a little deeper into the history of the sovereign as one of the world’s favourite gold coins.

The turkey has finally been eaten, those last few chocolates left at the bottom of the tin are being polished off, and the Christmas season is drawing to a close. As the new year celebrations kick-off, many of us are reflecting on the year that has passed, as well as pondering the possibilities for the year ahead.

Whether you’re religious or not, most of us know the story of the very first Christmas, with many variations of the nativity scene on show in households all over the world.

Just a quick note today to react to the dramatic price increase in Gold (and to a lesser extent, silver) in the past ten days or so.

There is much uncertainty in the global economy at the moment. Falling stock markets, the conflict between Italy and the European Union, the struggles with Brexit, and the ongoing aggressive policies in the USA seem to be supporting demand for gold as a safe-haven.

The gold price looks to have leapt back up after last Wednesday’s dip down to below £900, but the question going into this week is: Can gold hold?
