    Again another big thank you to @BackyardBullion for putting it all together and @Bullionbilly for donating this lovely prize! And not forgetting everyone else who participated and who also donated prizes!

    Do you know, I have no idea whether I will grade it or not. I got it for £980 all in so it is very cheap bullion in my mind. Pre-33 gold has gone out of favour a bit recently, but maybe one day it will have a resurgence.
    I am pretty sure this coin will be featured next week so we will be able to see it up close and personal and then maybe we can decide if it is worth grading!

    I'd vote for the St Gaudens!
    I picked up a graded ms64 one for £1200. I don't know how much you paid for that but it looks in excellent condition (from afar). Is it under consideration for grading or are you just considering it bullion? If you got it close to £1000 then even an ms63 or ms64 could add £200 in value to it.

    But the question on every-bodies mind is which box is better - compare and contrast BYB packaging to RM packaging please!

    You see this is where the superior BYB shipping excels - lots of internal padding and no risk of damage!

    Well I am very pleased with the little experiment tonight on some of my larger pieces of hand poured silver. 
    They achieved £22/oz including postage costs which is pretty good for larger pieces of silver on eBay! Nice to know that the premiums can be held on a secondary market.
    Of course I lose some of this to fee's but I took advantage of £3 sellers fee offer meaning a good chunk of savings.

    Mr Bullion, your box is the correct size for the product you are posting out, there is space for three or four items. The Royal Mint box is large, just like Westminster Coins, Room for one or two boxes. It is a lot better than the Jiffy Bag, Postmen and Women will probably not like it , Bulky not soft and small like the Jiffy Bag. All in all I think a victory for Coinster,s, The winner on this Occasion has to be Backyard Bullion for a nice size well packaged Box/Carton, presentation is part of the Buzz when receiving a new Coin or item through the Post.
    Royal Mint   9 out of ten
    Backyard Bullion  10 out of ten

    This is one of my favourite coins ever.

    One left for spot +3.5% delivered is a great deal on pre-33 USA gold despite the recent drop in demand and premiums!

    Thanks - I am not sure about the possibility of the jewellery market...just dosent seem practical.
    However as a slightly more practical piece of bullion (you could hang it as an ornament rather than it sitting in a draw for 30 years!) It might be better that way.

    If they were lighter and thinner they could be a pendant. There wouldn't be the drag and strain on the chain. This is more of a sheet pressed product but as key fobs which would use a heavy duty ring they would work well as they stand.

    I think this is not going to be a new range of items - simply a novel piece that people might want!
    As you say keeping the unique parts of my brand (ripples etc) with tiny pieces is tough

    Yeah it is a bit chunky for sure!
     
    So I tried it out on a medium star - the little ones are just too small sadly...
    But because of the angle of the hole there is no jump ring required on these!

    Yes indeed, this is the 9ct gold chain for my st. Christopher, but the only chain I have at the moment!
    I found a smaller jump ring which looks much better.
    Any suggestions based to the grade or thickness of the chain that would be best?

    Hi everyone.  I stumbled upon this wonderful site yesterday evening and I'm so pleased I did so.  I have only being investing money for around 3 years, chiefly stocks & shares and mostly AIM shares and have had a variety of results, not all favourable!  I've decided to diversify further, I bought a couple of paintings recently as they are much more pleasing on the eye than watching flashing figures on a computer screen! and it reminded me of the fun I used to have of collecting/dealing art deco pottery around 30 years ago.  I had being thinking about purchasing Gold and Silver for a while and took an (impulsive) plunge yesterday evening!  My plan was to buy silver bars and gold coins and plan to budget around £120 a month.  
    I can't wait for my first purchases to arrive.  Rather impulsively I have bought 5x 1oz Johnson Matthey bars and a 100g Scottsdale poured bar, so over budget already in month one! Bought on FleaBay (I'm old enough and daft enough to know the risks) and paid a tad over £18 an ounce for the lot including postage.  When I found this forum, wish I had waited as there appears to be some great deals to be had from the community, but I don't think I have faired too badly on my rather impulsive purchases! 
    I have an overall plan of retirement saving, I'm around 20 years from retirement.  Any advice/ tips always welcome.  Nice to meet you all.  Richard

    I have been experimenting with a drill today and have made a wearable antiqued Aztec round. Wasn't too difficult to drill through although I think I need to get some new metal specialised drill bits!
    What do you guys think!?
    It is a bit "Mr T" but looks pretty awesome - its a bit like wearing a huge medal! But kidna fun!
    A nice (albeit heavy duty required) silver chain would be pretty awesome!
