  1. Please help me identify this manufacturer

    It's worth whatever somebody is willing to pay. You might struggle to get a knowledgable answer on Arabic-script from an English forum, btw.
  2. From £12 to £13

    It will last until Trump and North Korea stop bitching at each other. Which might take a while...
  3. Shkreli is 'PharmaBro' - total genius but also kind of a dick. You might remember he was vilified for increasing the price of an AIDS drug by 5000%? Turns out that he bled the insurance companies dry whilst providing the poor with free prescriptions. He's interesting, for sure.
  4. Bottle Cap Shaped Coin

    Perfectly timed to coincide with the reversion to using Bottle Caps as currency in the post-nuclear apocalypse world, a la 'Fall Out'
  5. Goldsilver.be blues, part 2

    What is it with Germans and appalling customer service? GS.be always seem to fall back on the 'scammer' retort... makes me think they have some real insecurities around their processes. Sorry that you've have another poor experience
  6. Prince Philip Retirement Coin

    More likely a play on Prince Phillip's own words rather than a conscious slant against the Chinese... Lighten up, old bean!
  7. Who buys gold at spot price ?

    Dealers buy at under spot price, usually a couple of percent under. Private purchase is the easiest way for a non-business to buy gold at spot, or slightly under.
  8. Flip silver for gold

    Would they take it knowingly? Probably not. But fortunately for us, the wider British public are a pretty dense bunch and wouldn't know a hallmark if it slapped them in the face. It'll usually be thrown in with a job-lot of jewellery, that's where the bargains are. With that said, I've sacked it off. Long hours, early mornings and too damn cold half the time.
  9. Those three lines are why cryptocurrency will not catch on in its current form. The lebel of technical knowledge is just so far beyond the Average Joe that they will never, ever trust it. The only people to make millions from Bitcoin are the hackers, the creators and the company who manages to make it 'facebook-simple'. One hard-drive failure and you've lost your money, as seen above. Crazy risks.
  10. Flip silver for gold

    Both will milkspot relatively quickly. Have you considered checking local pawn shops and car boots for resaleable items? There's profit to be made when other people lack knowledge.
  11. Flip silver for gold

    That's mostly wrong, unfortunately. VAT registration is with the person, not the company. Splitting two companies is a great way to attract an HMRC small-business audit, especially when selling similar items (i.e. Items that have a relationship to one another, coins and cases). Anyway, it's none of my concern. Best of luck with the sales, and the taxman
  12. Flip silver for gold

    Duplicate post, sorry.
  13. Flip silver for gold

    But you will have hit the VAT threshold at this point, and have no choice but to register for VAT... the second-hand scheme doesn't allow for selling precious metals, so you'd better have a good accountant for when your tax return is due. With that said, there is money to be made... or rather, there was
  14. Flip silver for gold

    What Gav is failing to tell you here is that he is heavily financially invested in this coin, and is trying to pump the value up. He predicted they'd be $100 each, but they've seen a relative lack of price increase thus far. Thought you'd been told that pumping wasn't allowed on these forums, Gav? His advice is not impartial and should be caveated.
  15. 2017 Britannia proof

    Ireland missing is certainly a strange decision. It could quite easily have been finished in matte, to ensure a separation between the two countries. Making NI an island of its own is downright odd.
  16. 200 Anniversary "Strike on the day" Sovereign

    I had the letter, and it went in the bin. A Proof certificate is more valuable than a BUNC; especially when the coin is struck to near-proof quality anyway.
  17. ASE sales collapse.. Are *you* still stacking?

    I struggle to take Chris Duane seriously; he's really shot his credibility with all his "to the moon" pumping. I'm not stacking silver at the moment... I could sell my stack and make a nice profit, but I couldn't sell for profit at current prices and feel as if other investments are growing far more quickly. For example: The stock market is booming right now; ISAs are far more tax efficient and a very good investment tool in the current climate.
  18. They must really love you... FOI is a powerful tool for finding out information; hope you get a good result!
  19. I need metal expertise

    Isn't it just a cast steel doorbell surround? I've never seen any hard-furnishings made of precious metals.
  20. Has anyone ever bought from coin portfolio

    The marketing isn't even correct? Showing an 1897 sovereign, when Rorke's Drift was in 1879... it's not difficult to give it a google, is it? Poor QC from that company.
  21. Today I bought.....

    They are, and have been for at least 3 weeks Pray, do tell...
  22. 200 Anniversary "Strike on the day" Sovereign

    Hmmmm... that is quite tempting. Would be a bit of a gamble but would it go over £750 if there's other available to BIN at that price?
  23. Falklands 35th Anniversary Crowns (Pobjoy Mint)

    If you like the subject and the strike, the future prospects of the coin might not be so important to you. But as for their future profit potential, it is fairly limited. I can buy sterling silver proof coins are spot price without any issue. It's always a difficult call on memorial coins: some hold their value quite well, but others really struggle. I would not buy these in the hope of making a profit, based on numismatic demand alone.
  24. 200 Anniversary "Strike on the day" Sovereign

    Hmmm. Proof finish, coupled with a proof certificate... I'd imagine NGC and PCGS will be slabbing as proof, as well. I think this might augur quite well for resale values, if slabbed.
  25. Trading 212

    I remember reading that Trading 212 took positions against their clients trades, on occasion. I can't say I read into it deeply, but a google search of current reviews caused me to raise an eyebrow slightly. I have to say that I really like Hargreaves Lansdown for the simplicity of their platform. I believe that if you become a regular trader you can qualify for a 50% discount on trading, as well.
