    So over the last two years myself and Christina have been building up a very modest little business with a focus on excellent customer service, affordable prices and a great selection of all types of pre owned jewellery. We are trying our best to grow and evolve and I felt it time to share with the forums our little Business. We are currently Ebay based only, but will be moving onto other selling platforms and building our own website. We currently have over 650 items of silver jewellery (and a few gold) From a stacking point of view this will be irrelevant as all our items are not suitable for investment, however should anyone ever see anything they like for themselves or as a gift for a loved one we can offer silver forum members a 20% discount if bought through the forums and paid by Paypal friends and family passing all our savings on fees we pay on ebay and paypal. So I present - Dorset Jewellery http://stores.ebay.co.uk/dorset-jewellery

We're coin geeks and are happy to help if you have a question - if we don't know, we'll try our best to find out the answers.

    1g 2016 Disney Note from JuneYao Group which was sold through Shanghai Pudong Development Bank $5 Indian Head from HGM. Didn't think I would get it as I took so long looking up the stats to work out the % over spot since HGM no longer display it. I missed out on the $2.5 a week or 2 ago for the same reason. Australian Domed Southern Sky 1oz Gold Coin from the New Zealand Mint. Very nice packaging.

    Yesterday I HAD made..... (warning:pic heavy) edits to come Remember these? @GoldBenj had them for sale. 3 x 22ct bands, 10.2g at near spot.....hmm. I approached Ben with an idea, nothing dramatic or exciting but could he do it? No problem guvnor A 10.2g lump! Yippee....wait for it.... Look at this machinery! Proper craftsmanship. Love it...it's probably as old as @Oldun? Nipples Taking shape. Yes, this is for myself. When Ben asked me what style I would like the ring, I wasn't sure. The idea was to create a bullion ring, as near to spot as we could. He recommended a classic 'D' shape because there would be the least wastage (filing etc.) Talent Birmingham Hallmark 9.4g 5mm Finished. The ring was completed in two days, the assay took time....Cheltenham didn't help! lol You all know I'm a soppy old tart. I'm pleased! I have a hand made, pic documented 22ct ring, and it's personal. Made in England. It's fantastic Ben.

    2017 Munich International Coin Show 4 Coin Panda Medal Set. I only really wanted the 1oz.

    35th Anniversary of the Issuance of the Gold Chinese Panda Brass Medal. Weighs approx 500g with mintage of 500. Copper has the same mintage and silver has mintage of 99. There is also a gold one with mintage of 9. Not sure if it's the same size as that would make it 1kg in weigh or whether it is a reduced down 150g version. I really like the back with the coins and temple. This is a private medal from Shanghai CaiQi Travel Souvenir Co Ltd. This is supposed to have been designed by Zhao Qiang (Rocky Zhao) who also designed the 2011, 2014, 2015 Gold Pandas as well as numerous other things from the Shanghai Mint. It is rumoured that the owner of Shanghai CaiQi travel is an ex employee of the Shanghai Mint and the company leases workshop space from the Shanghai Mint. No idea how accurate those rumours are. This year we will be seeing some fiat commemorative Panda coins from the Peoples Bank of China and no doubt we'll also be seeing medals from CGCI as well as the official Mints themselves.

    A nice coin but a little disappointing. The frosting doesn't show as much detail as I hoped for. The coin feels a little cheap which it certainly isn't lol

    I make additional money by tidying up Chinese web pages, I got the idea reading some Chinese Ebay pages with the pigeon English - This product make you much happyness, very much quality etc. I send them an e-mail saying I will tidy it up for a tenner or sometimes just if they send me one of what they are selling and that they will look more professional and make more sales if they agree - and many do and it takes me 10 mins to sort it out even though I don't speak a word of Chinese. I now change their attempt to something like - This is a quality product which you will be delighted with, send it back to them and thats the job done. Years ago I made a good income buying faulty phones on Ebay, Nokia N95's mainly, if you bought one with a faulty screen and one with any other fault and just make one good phone out of the two and sell it back on Ebay, Was £80 to £100 profit per phone and on my worst week I sold 2 and on my best week I sold 18, then phones got all sleek and complicated and I had to chuck it.
