    More 2017 sovereigns for my tube. Need to crack on with only 2 months of the year remaining.

    ....That is your answer, put perfectly.
    I would like to add this...
    You get a superb deal, then it is slightly readjusted with notice, then you come on a public forum and disparage the company, although the deal with you is still superb value.
    Obviously I dont know you, however I do know Paul and can tell you he is a 100% genuine person.
    You come across in your arguments as someone who has thrown his dummy out of the pram at the slightest excuse, ready to flame an established well regarded company who have tried to treat you well.
    I would imagine that most reasonable people on here would say your reputation has taken much more damage than Atkinsons has.
    Honestly I bet Paul would be mortified by this attitude you have shown, he prides himself on running a superb fair business.
    Lets face it for approx £30 a month discount for 3 Brits, minus your new cost of £8, you save £22, for this you make such a song and dance, may I suggest you take up another form of investing if this riles you so much!

    Just thought i would share one of the major commisions I've had at work, a complete sterling silver book, for a 50th wedding anniversary. The construction method was a brainstorm and a half. 
    The outter pages have been gilded.

    Quite pleased with how it finished up.

    GoldBenj reacted to Paul in Inside a Chinese Coin Counterfeiting Ring   
    https://www.thespruce.com/chinese-coin-counterfeiting-ring-4071202
    The photos in this gallery were taken inside a Chinese coin counterfeiting operation.
    This counterfeiting ring is suspected of putting thousands of fake coins onto the world and U.S. coin markets every month.
    These striking photos first emerged on certain Web-based coin discussion boards in Europe and the Far East.
    They came to my attention through a numismatic watchdog/satire blog called Biddle's Bank.
    These are the same coins which are being put into counterfeit PCGS and NGC coin holders, although they are most frequently sold raw (non-slabbed.)
    The sheer size, scope, and professionalism of this counterfeiting ring will astonish you.
    Although the working conditions often appear dirty and the minting equipment is old, this is obviously a well-funded enterprise that is run like a legal business in China.
    There is no law in China against making these "replicas" as long as they are sold as such.
