  1. These have now sold out. Not surprised as this was the cheapest price for 1/4oz gold.
  2. Today I got my first rabbit in my change.
  3. Today my milk spotted 2015 Britannias arrived in the post and have cleaned up nicely. My Britannia anniversary privy and 2oz dragon arrived yesterday. My 1/4oz gold lunar sheep is now rescheduled as I was out shopping. The courier note says the shipper does not authorise it to be left with a neighbour. You sending it back?
  4. Just bought another 1997 Canadian silver maple. This is either the 7th or 8th I've bought which I will be sitting on for quite some years. I've been lucky in getting previous ones very cheap.
  5. Mine arrives tomorrow. Does it come with a screw capsule?
  6. Reading different American dealers sites, the 1/4 oz gold lunar issue started with the 2015 sheep. Two sites mention the mintage was 5000 BU for this year whilst another site mentions a maximum mintage of 10,000, which may include bullion grade.
  7. They look like they fell out of the back end of a piano
  8. Started in 2013 with a single silver Britannia & it grew from there. Never gave it a thought all the years before!
  9. I bought a cottage in Croatia seven years ago and plan to spend a few months there a year when I retire. My neighbours out there are great which makes it worthwhile going out there every so often. Retirement is around 24 years away though!
  10. Just bought 2 x 2015 milk spotted Britannias on ebay. They'll clean up easily
  11. If I saw this first I would have opted for it instead of the 1/4 sheep to keep my spending down but it only came up on offer today. At least I've got a coin that's a bit more collectible and possibly worth more in the future.
  12. Royal Mint bullion now have a 2015 carded 1/4 oz gold Britannia on offer https://www.royalmintbullion.com/Products/Britannia/Gold/UKB15GQS
  13. I noticed it a few days back on their bullion site & mentioned it on the gold deal thread. I never knew of them until then. https://www.royalmintbullion.com/Products/Lunar/Gold
  14. Today I bought a gold 1/4 oz 2015 lunar sheep from the Royal Mint.
  15. Just bought a silver Britannia anniversary privy and a Queens beast dragon.
