    So Rebnah, let me get this straight.  They are cheaper than elsewhere and the product is good it's just that you're miffed about it not arriving next day?
    Did you shout at them on the phone or something?  I'm actually shocked to hear your accusation that they don't give a "dam" given my own personal experiences with them.  For your interest I rate them a good 9/10.  I've always received well wrapped products from them, next day as it happens, and I've had long phone calls to them for advice with which they were always very forthcoming.  Their website, 24carat, is a veritable mine of useful information on silver and they alerted me to a product last year that has done very well indeed.  They were recently still selling the last of this product in limited qty per customer for way less than their European competitors who have ramped it's price right up.  This is quite astonishing to me given the unfair VAT that they're forced to charge but even like that they really do manage to represent good honest value sometimes.  Our experiences really sound like different worlds!
    BTW, I saw your pic on the "today I received" thread and the coin does look lovely.  Personally, this really doesn't sound like a "rubbish" experience to me as you describe it, just one that could perhaps be a little disappointing for it not arriving in a hurry.  In this day and age of instant gratification it's easy to lose sight of what's important.  If I was to volunteer a review about a company I'd used once, a company that had ultimately supplied me a product in excellent condition and cheaper than elsewhere in what can only have ended up being exactly the same time scale as anywhere else could have then I think I'd be careful about slagging them off publically.  Not for fear that it would damage their reputation and any repercussions from that.  No, more for fear of it damaging mine.  I would certainly phrase it a little differently than "rubbish" and "sod them".  In fact, I think I would have stuck simply to something like, "the coin is lovely and I'm very happy with it but they need to do a little work on delivery commitments.".  Now that sounds far less brattish doesn't it.

    Hi Lizzie, Just to confirm that I have used your company on lots of occasions, going back many years, usually buying Pandas! I have never had anything other than superb reliable service.
     
    I have noted recently (and I will try to use my words carefully) that this forum IMHO is been slowly taken over by the type of people who think they are the next big thing since they have purchased a Proof Silver coin and then whinge and cry when things dont go quite to plan, also ready to instantly castigate any company or person when some obscure thing doesnt go their way, on a public forum, ready to destroy reputations made over many years.
     
    Please read back over the last month, I would kindly suggest to a lot of people on this forum, reassess your reasons for "investing" in PMs, do more research and stop crying publicly when things dont go your way, it isnt very endearing!
     
     
     
    Mods feel free to remove if you feel that some of the sensitive souls feelings may be hurt!
     
    Cheers

    Back to coins....
    Some old gold and some new, some platinum and silver too😀. 
    A few gold quarter ounce QB Dragons/Griffins and 2016 Libertad proofs  (some for members on the Forum), along with a 2016 Perth mint sovereign. Will think about grading some of them in pursuit of 70s! Another ounce of Pt - this time the 2016 Austrian Philharmoniker, which I bought actually right on the price dip in early January....so well pleased with that, and a nice big coin.
    Then silver - a stackers tube of 10 QB dragons, plus a few extras for capsules of the dragon and Griffin, and a slabbed Dragon.  Happy to report that no milky ones in the tube (I checked!). Shelled out the cash for a silver PF70 QB Lion one ounce proof, and a few more in boxes -  now I see why everyone goes gaga over this proof design 😉. Some more irresistible 2016 Libertad silver proofs, and a few 2017 kooks (1 ouncers and a doorstop 10 ounce) and 2017 Britannias for good measure when the silver price dipped. 
    The old gold: "mission accomplished" on the sovereign mintmark set as I just found a nice Ottawa C 1911 sov to complete the set. The Bombay I 1918 I picked up last week made me focus on that missing Canada one😊!  1911 C by far the most common of the Canada years (1908-1919), but at 257,048 minted that is still a pretty low % out of the 40 million minted worldwide that year (numbers from goldsovereigns.co.uk). Got it along with a very nice 1912 London sovereign, and a 20 francs 1897 Lucky Angel.

    Keep things simple - just buy and stack full and half sovereigns once you have enough funds.
    Lowest % price spread, highly liquid, ready resale market, ease of storage, CGT free.

    Well I have broken my "sovereigns only" rule for my current stack.
    Buying all sovs and just sticking them in tubes may be a sensible approach but it got so boring.
     
    Just ordered these 3 up from Baird, at £1000 a coin seems like a bargain :

    Just be careful when unboxing, it seems a lot of these are loose and rattling around.

    I've been wanting the 2017 for a while because of the new design.  Luckily I never did buy it and the limited 30th Anniversary Privy was recently released so it made much more sense to get this one instead for the extra few £.  Decided to buy from RMB as it was only £4 more expensive than elsewhere and for that extra I would get a capsule and be entered into the prize draw.  Unlike the Queen's Beasts, the capsule is not the screw type and is just a push fit with a little moon cutout for opening.
    Shipped yesterday with a scheduled delivery for Tuesday due to the Bank Holiday.  Delivered today, a Saturday by DHL.
    The field design is much better than the dimply effect of the previous couple years.

  24. Cully liked a post in a topic by Madstacks in Steve and other Sov experts needed..find of as lifetime? or disappointment?   
    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!
