  3. Hi @Sovereign nice set, where did you get the box from if you don't mind me asking?
  4. This is what 913 gold full and half sovereigns looks like! I am drooling lol
  5. I know how you feel, I was in the regular Army for 8 years, no matter what you did you could never win lol, treat like a dick day in day out but you went through it with the rest of the lads so it wasn't all that bad because there was always banter. Don't get me wrong I loved the Army and did some amazing places and done some amazing things along the way which I could never do in civvie street, but I was always away from home so missed friends and family, from the age of 19 to 23 I was constantly away in ethier Afghan or Canada or away on exercise leading up to my Afghan tours. I just wanted a normal life and be at home, so I did and I believe it was the best thing I've done, I'm a bit more happy now and have got a decent job with nearly the same pay. I still wanted to be a part of the armed forces so I have joined the Army reserves which still keeps me doing a bit of the life I did enjoy but when I want to do it lol, plus for all the added bonuses lol the reserves also funds my collecting habit lol
  6. Very nice @Chewy636 I think they will turn out to be a good investment and I think an even better investment if you get 70s
  7. Very nice @Numistacker it looks like a different coin, they have done a good job
  8. I remember when I was new to collecting, I was in the duty free section at Dubai airport and I was looking at all the gold coins/ bars, they got a 1oz bar out for me and tried to sell me it, I had a good hold of it and I was well impressed, I wanted to have a look at the 1kg bar but they wouldn't let me lol just found the photo
  9. Totally agree, there are too many nice coins out there, I just want to have them all lol
  10. Nicola Sturgeon is touring Perthshire, in the First Minister’s chauffeur driven car. Suddenly a cow jumps out into the road. They hit it full on and the car comes to a stop. Nicola in her usual jaunty manner, says to the chauffeur : " You get out and check - you were driving." The chauffeur gets out, checks and reports that the animal is dead. " You were driving, go and tell the farmer," says Nicola, ”I can’t afford to be blamed for anything.” The chauffeur walks up the drive to the farmhouse and returns five hours later totally plastered, his hair ruffled and with a big grin on his face. " My God, what happened to you ?" asks Nicola. The chauffeur replies : " When I got there, the farmer opened his best bottle of malt whisky, the wife gave me a slap up meal and the daughter made love to me." " What on earth did you say?" asks Nicola. " I knocked on the door and when it was answered, I said to them, I'm Nicola Sturgeon’s chauffeur and I've just killed the cow!!
  11. Very nice and not bad for free yea hopefully I will be keeping my fingers crossed lol
  12. That's good then, at least you got what you wanted, it drives me crazy when you put an item up and someone offers a ridiculous amount lol. Have you got your eyes set on another purchase yet? I was late to the party so all I managed to get was the half oz proof, they are definitely not doing as good as the full! Lol
  13. Congrats @Silvergun nice little profit there! its crazy how much these are actually going for
  14. Hatton garden metals has a 500g gold bar in for just over £16800, works out at spot + 2% but hurry only 1 remaining http://www.hattongardenmetals.com/buy/pid23/gold-bar-500g.aspx
  15. Thanks for sharing @Bullionbilly I prefer to buy coins and tend to stay away from bars anyway, it just goes to show that these are easily copied
