    Shout out to Backyard Bullion for making the video on the 1/4 oz proof QB lion. Got mine in the post today. This coin is a real beauty. Some scratches on the capsule but not the coin. The box it came with is really nice as well. Part wood with detachable magnet piece that holds the coin. No regrets buying it.

    Received my 1/4 oz gold queens beasts lion today, I really really like it, it looks so much better in person, I may well have to get the others now lol. Just under 5 grams to go now until my first target reached! I quite like the Swiss 20 Franc so that might be the next purchase.

    Coins confirmed as real:) they did not use an XRF, but have highly accurate scales - they were happy to buy them outright or loan on them there and then so that's good enough for me. We have debated selling two and keeping two, but have decided that they are really nice condition and will be good to keep as coins for a rainy day fund so going to keep them all. finding 4 sovereigns on ST Georges day of all days just seems like it was meant to be. Thanks for the advice everyone, kept me sane whilst waiting!

    Just a small piece of advice before you dive in, don't be afraid to ask for advice as i'm seeing a lot of coins coming back from NGC in bodybag slabs, so if there is something that you may be looking to buy anytime and unsure then don't hesitate to ask, advice is free, mistakes cost.......

    Todays update is that the packages seem to have appeared at Coventry Parcelforce and were downgraded to a different service level for some reason. I believe both are now on the way to the USA and one may have already arrived so good news I hope.

    Today I found the One Quarter Ounce Pamp Suisse Fortuna Bar - It was unfortunetly part of jewelry - but It will serve its purpose until a mint condition one is found. Only one left is the never seen 8gm bar.

    Something a little different courtesy of silverstatues.com I was really hoping these would be VAT exempt on UK import since they're both collectable and art but that wasn't the case.

    Coin Invest is fast as usual. Two days after ordering these were delivered. Looks like the queen got no scuff marks? The 20 Korona is from 1892 and a 1 oz poured silver bar.

    I have been working hard today and have finished a "Mirror Heart". Poured by hand, sanded by hand and polished by hand. Yes tools would be easier but 1) I don't have the tools! & 2) I like a challenge! It is the 5th piece in my Mirror finish series, hence it is stamped with MIRROR 5. You can see all my other pieces (all sold) here: http://backyardbullion.com/mirror-finish/ So, this heart is for sale and I am looking for £75 delivered for it. I think it is a great piece and in my opinion well worth it considering the time, energy and resources I have put into it! It would make a great birthday, christening or wedding present! Weight 2.35 ozt Purity: 999 Paypal F&F or Banks transfer. G&S +3% Open to sensible offers too.
