    Which do you prefer - shiny or antiqued!?

    Thinking about it more I guess this must reflect an extremely low demand from buyers.
    If people had been snapping them up from the start the sellers would have edged their premiums higher.
    In the end I suppose a coin that looks like a bar puts off quite a few coin buyers/collectors and because it’s not really a bar it also doesn’t appeal to many bar stackers.

    I wouldn't mind having a coin with my initials as the privy, maybe on a birth year sovereign but that's as far as I'd take it with privy! Do not like them as all!

    In my opinion, privy coins are meaningless at best, and a con at worst.
    Some of the available privy coins out there make zero sense. Who decided what the privy mark will be and what their reasoning is is beyond me. Tanks and F15s (Yes Im aware its not the plane but its still stupid)? Mathmatical formulae and buildings that are falling over? Animals that bear no link to the coin, country or mint at all, not even on a lunar basis? What? Why?
    So, if you had your hands on the designer's throat and demanded a privy mark edition of your favourite bullion coins, what would you ask for. (All answers are valid no matter how ridiculous, since ridiculous privy marks make it on to coin in real life anyway!).
    I'll start. I would design a privy mark in the shape of a privy (an old word for an outdoor toilet).
    Go.

    Your 'privy' privy has already been done - a company stuck it on a maple leaf a couple of years ago.

    "Sourcing them to Order" "  Acquired from the secondary market"
    Flowery posh language for "SELLING STUFF YOU DONT HAVE"
    Just wrong, 
    Wrong, wrong, wrong IMO in this day and age
    Would you make a food delivery with Asda, to be told you will have to wait x47 x48 days for them to source the spuds for your casserole
    If Chard they are happy with their "selling stuff you dont have" policy for sovereigns.  As buyers, how can we be 100% sure they would not do this for anything other product they may advertise?
    The Bernie Maidoff investors were happy with him "sourcing to order" market-leading % returns on their cash until he that all went tits up
    A "Dealer of the Year" not being able to supply x5 sovereign in x49 days without one explantation call or email. Terrible

    Hi all,
    looking in to buying a relatively small fireproof safe for my small but perfectly formed stack, plus important paper work. As you’d expect there’s a million options and reviews, but just wondering what my fellow PM collectors favour? Any particular brand to try/avoid?

    AlphaBeast reacted to sovereignsteve in Royal Mint return process waiting time..is this normal?   
    as a general point, is there any reason why they can't just go back and strike another few dozen (or hundred! ) to replace the shite ones they made in the first place?
    maybe they do, and that's why it takes them so long to send replacements?
